While we are sure many of you might not be familiar with the word FPV, many of you will also be. FPV is also termed as the First-person view and it is something similar to a VR experience. It is something that will make you feel like you are already at that moment. Now, FPV drone racing is a rapidly growing niche in the United States. People are starting to conduct competitions for FPV drone racing and keeping prize money for the same as well.
As you would expect, FPV drone racing is not easy and add to that the filming part as well. Yes, you might have to film the drone racing which is impossible for a normal drone. Therefore, specialized drones dedicated to FPV racing are available in the market. Now, DJI has tapped into this potential niche and have released their first FPV goggles as well as a camera. This will be used for high-definition drone racing and filming as well.
DJI has launched the FPV goggles which will let you see the filming while there is also an “air unit”. You can attach this air unit to almost anything and film what is going on. DJI says that you can use this to film anything from FPV drones to RC cars to boats as well. This is unlike the earlier reports which said that DJI is releasing an FPV drone of itself. Rather, the company has launched equipments which can be used for FPV filming.
The difference between DJI and others is that the company is using digital transmission instead of analogue for its goggles and camera. This means that the pilots will be able to stream a 720p video from a drone with a latency of just 28 milliseconds from up to 2.5 miles away. Also, the recording can be done on both the drone and goggles so even if the drone crashes, the recording can be stored on goggles for future investigation and use.
