DJI has announced two new products aimed at users of its Avata drone which launched last year. DJI Goggles Integra is a new design of FPV (First Person View) headset, while DJI RC Motion 2 is a new flight controller.
DJI Goggles Integra
The new DJI Goggles Integra headset has an integrated design with the headband and battery combined into one. This makes the headset much easier to put in and take off, as there are no connecting cables. Although the built-in battery headband is light, it still gives you up to two hours of operating time. The Goggles Integra headset even has a built-in GPS, so you can fly without connecting to a smartphone.
DJI Goggles Integra also has two HD 1080p Micro-OLED screens with a brightness of 700 nits and a 100 Hz refresh rate. DJI says these deliver true-to-life colors, stunning highlights and detailed shadows. In addition, the screens have TÜV Rheinland Low Blue Light Certification, which means they are better for your eyes. The DJI Goggles Integra headset also uses DJI’s O3+ video transmission technology. This gives you ultra-low 30ms latency and stable video transmission for high-speed aerial photography.
DJI RC Motion 2
DJI RC Motion 2 features motion-sensing technology and an upgraded joystick. DJI says that this means users of all levels can easily navigate, maneuver and explore the skies. The RC Motion 2 controller also has an accelerator with a reverse function that supports multidirectional flight, including vertical, backward and sideways. This makes it easier to adjust the flight direction or choose the best place to land. In addition, you can use RC Motion 2’s Fn dial to the camera’s ISO, shutter and other parameters without having to interact with the goggles.
Immersive flight experience
DJI says that the RC Motion 2 controller has precise accuracy and richer dynamic movement, so anyone can tackle complex flight maneuvers with confidence. When combined with DJI Avata and DJI Goggles Integra, your hand movements dictate the drone’s flight direction. In addition, you can use the DJI Fly app to connect your DJI Goggles Integra to your smartphone. You can then display a real-time camera view to the goggles and your smartphone simultaneously. This means you can share your drone’s eye view with your friends.
What we think
With its compact size and built-in propellor guards, DJI designed Avata to be able to fly in places you wouldn’t risk with other drones. With the new DJI Goggles Integra and DJI RC Motion 2, Avata’s flight experience has become even more immersive. The lightweight headset with an integrated battery makes Goggles Integra a breeze to take on and off. In addition, RC Motion 2 makes your flight controls even more intuitive. The two new products aren’t cheap, but if you own a DJI Avata you should definitely check them out.
