DJI FPV drone review: fast and furious

  • күнү жарыяланды 3 ай мурун

    The Verge

    DJI is joining the cinematic FPV trend and is releasing its first FPV drone. The drone is bundled together with DJI’s existing goggles and a brand new controller. We take a look at how it compares to the rest of the market and how hard it is to fly FPV?

    Correction: At 10:09 I say the obstacle sensors only work in manual mode. I misspoke, they only work in normal mode.

So what ever happened to the government having problems with DJI drones being sold in the US? I bet it was lobbyist trying to put an end to sells. Weirdest thing.

Flying in my backyard. There was a large ditch that I underestimated the turn radius and momentum of the DJI Inspire 1. It clipped a tree, cut the engines and dropped like a brick. Into the ditch. Fortunately they had just finished dredging the ditch and some of the sand they dredged out created a makeshift island that the drone just happened to land on. Still broke an arm that needed to be replaced before the shoot I had in less than 5 days but I was able to get everything taken care of. Was pretty stressful having to go from pilot to mechanic on the whole thing.

So just to be clear. If you are flying in the direction of 30km/h Wind and this thing reaches top speed of 140km/h, half a kilo may come towards you at 170km/h. Sounds fun.

Yes it was your fault lol that’s why authentic FPV pilots start using simulator and 100 dollars setup ready to crash. The only difference is that if you crash a 100 dollars FPV you won’t brake it and if you do you can replace parts in a day without or with help of hundreds of pilots whiling to help new pilots. With the dji drone well fpv pilots still can replace their own parts if they have those particular ones, new pilots well they need dji help and a fer hundred in replacement parts. Being said that I wish you and every new pilot the best, anyone reading this comment feel free to contact me if you have any questions I’m whiling to help anyone for free

I don't really see the target audience for this drone. It is WAY to brittle to be used as an fpv drone. Experienced pilots won't fly this since the best shots usually come with the highest risks. And if you touch something with this drone... It will break. Your crash wasn't bad, I've had 100s of crashes like that which i usually fly away from. And when it comes to new pilots getting in to fpv... The first time you turn on acro mode that thing will be upsidedown and non flyable anymore. So in my opinion, they're kinda making a drone that can be a regular gps drone, but lacks the proper gimbal. And an fpv drone that can only be flown carefully by experienced pilots (who won't be interested). And to be frank... From the clips I've seen it flies like a badly tuned, underpowered fpv drone. So a tip for people just getting in to drones, pick a regular gps drone or a full fledged fpv drone, don't start with this. Anyway, that's my take. Thanks for your time and I hope you all have a great day! :D

Okay, from a fpv pilot whose been in the hobby for a couple years here’s what was wrong. Flight time is incorrect, us fpv pilots only get around 3-4 min (depending on a whole lot of variables) per flight for a standard 5” size drone. (The dji drone is in the 5” size class) Analog Range: analog systems can go very very long range just like digital systems can. I flew I think 4 miles away the other day on an analog drone. Great video though, I hope this will get more people into the hobby

A crash like that should not have trashed the drone. If you want to lean to fly in full manual mode don't buy this as you are going to seriously regent it.

I finally got it working. The short OTG cable must be plugged into the goggles, then the regular USB cable into the phone, exactly in that order. Only then was I able to activate the drone. I've had two flights so far and love this aircraft. It's worth every penny but I would not recommend it be flown in manual, unless you are a pro.

I think the drone should absolutely NOT stop the motors if it crashes because it's nearly impossible to detect when that happens in the FPV world. A software fix would presume the motors would stop at a given resistance which could mean the drone just stops and falls out of the sky in some scenarios. I'm actually surprised DJI told you it was a bug — Un-arming the motors should be pretty easy to do with a single button press —, but hopefully they can implement a decent threshold level for that.

Flying in Jordan on the border with Syria (back when fighting was more intense) and someone just started yelling "secret police, secret police, go now!"
