Hi there, and welcome to this review of the DJI Avata FPV Drone. I got the Full ProView Combo, which comes with the drone, the new DJI FPV Goggles and a motion controller. You can also buy the just the drone, without the goggles or the controller. Alternatively, you can also choose to buy the drone with the original DJI FPV Goggle.
Unlike the original DJI FPV Drone, the DJI Avata is not a designed to be a full 5-inch racing drone. The Avata is more of a Cine-Whoop class drone.

The DJI FPV 2 goggles are smaller than the original. They feature HD-OLED Displays with about a 51-degree Field-Of-View. There are no buttons on the goggle – you control it using a touch pad.
While I do understand that DJI were going for a fancier look, the touch pad does take some getting used to.
This goggle comes with two ports located just below the touchpad; USB-C and Power-Port. The power port is a 7-9 Volt connector and you can’t go higher than 9 volts on it.
On the other side of the drone, there’s a headphone jack and a MicroSD Card slot.
The antennas on top of the goggle are removable and they connect to the goggle via an MMCX connector. In addition, there are two more antennas inside the goggle that are not removable. The antennas on top of the goggle are also foldable for easier packing.
Under the goggle, there’s the IPV adjustments for moving the displays left and right. You can also rotate them to focus and press them inwards to lock.
Lastly, the goggle also comes with a lens protector that snaps on to ensure no dust gets into the goggles when you’re not using them.

This is an FPV drone that is built with some of the stabilization features that you’d find on the DJI Mavics. For example, it has GPS and the down facing sensors. This makes it unbelievably stable whether you’re flying it indoors or outdoors.
The DJI Avata comes with just one camera. This camera doubles as the action and the flying/FPV camera. The camera is on a 1-axis gimbal that goes up and down. It comes with some sort if stabilization built-in. For even more stabilization, you can also use this camera with Gyro-Flow.
Design and build-quality.
The DJI Avata FPV Drone is very well built to say the least. In our flight tests, we crashed the drone about three times (not intentionally), and it still kept working perfectly. Watch the video to see the full Fly Test.
The motion Controller
The motion controller is a controller that you hold with one hand. You control the drone by tilting this controller. Watch out video to learn more about this controller.
