DJI Avata 2 Review : The DJI Avata 2 Is More Nimble

DJI has once again raised the bar for immersive FPV drone flight with the new DJI Avata 2. As we have enjoyed the almost out-of-body thrill of FPV flight using DJI's previous models, we were incredibly impressed with just how easy the Avata 2 makes it to perform advanced aerial maneuvers while keeping the experience fully immersive.

DJI Avata 2 Fly-More Combo

The design of the Avata 2 is compact yet durable, featuring a robust yet lightweight carbon fiber body that houses the upgraded components. It maintains an impressive agility while feeling stable in flight.

Starting off with the updated propeller which is lighter and more agile to allow freer navigation around tight corners. Instead of the downward facing propellers for the Avata 1, the Avata 2 now features an upward facing propeller. In addition to these, the Avata 2 includes a heatsink/cooling vents on all sides of the drone for improved cooling to ensure heat is dissipated quickly.

For flight time, we were able to clock around 23 mins per flight from a full charge battery. This is a slight upgrade from the Avata 1 which has been known to clock roughly below 20 minutes per full charge. The battery also now supports PD fast charging so that it can be recharged and back up in the air in no time.

Two-Way charging hub

With the aid of the new Two-Way charging hub, it now comes with a power accumulation function which allows power to be passed on to the battery with the highest charge level which comes in handy when an extra battery is needed. The Avata 2 also handles itself much better in a high wind environment as compared to its predecessor which does not feel as powerful as the Avata 2.

DJI Avata 2 Camera

Featuring a bigger camera sensor compared to its predecessor, the Avata 2’s 12MP, 1/1.3-inch super-wide-angle camera handles lowlight conditions extremely well. With a camera specification of 4K60 and an angle of up to 155 degree, the Avata 2 poses no challenges of visibility during flights.

During flight, the camera on the Avata 2 was able to provide immersive aerial photography and HDR videography at 4K60FPS as well as 2.7K/120FPS for a slow motion footage.

Being able to fly the Avata 2 at night has posed an issue for us as there are no night lights, but with the improved image quality of the Avata 2 camera, you would be able to fly in poorer lit conditions at night.

Under the hood, the Avata 2 packs quite a punch. It utilises DJI's flagship O3 transmission system, providing a maximum video transmission distance of 13km and latency as low as 24ms for ultra-smooth footage. This is paired with the new O4 video transmission for 1080p video at 100fps. The 1/1.3-inch 12MP sensor captures stunning detail, while the ultra-wide 155-degree lens opens up creative possibilities.

However, what really sets the Avata 2 apart is how easy it makes advanced maneuvers. The new DJI RC Motion 3 controller allows pilots to perform 360-degree flips with a single button press for added dynamism. Rolling and drifting are also achieved effortlessly. We found this level of control incredibly intuitive, taking our flights to a whole new level without extra training.

DJI Goggles 3

Naturally, the Avata 2 is designed to be paired with the immersive DJI Goggles 3. Featuring dual micro-OLED screens with up to 100Hz refresh rates and adjustable diopters for a customised fit, they provide crystal clear transmission up close or from a distance. Real View PiP technology gives situational awareness without removing the goggles, enhancing both safety and the sense of being in the cockpit. DJI Goggles 3 comes with an inbuilt fan to allow cooling during long usage and it feels much more compact and feasible for users.

In our testing, the Avata 2 tracked smoothly through all manner of maneuvers thanks to DJI's RockSteady and HorizonSteady stabilisation technologies. We were able to focus solely on piloting intricate flight paths without worrying about shaky footage.

Overall, the DJI Avata 2 package, which includes the drone, Goggles 3 and RC Motion 3, gives pilots an incredibly immersive and easy-to-master FPV experience. Its robust yet agile design paired with powerful specs is raising the bar for cinematic drone footage. While the premium price point may not suit all, for those seeking the ultimate in FPV thrills without the fuss, I have no hesitation in recommending the DJI Avata 2 system. The incredible experience it provides makes it a worthy investment for both aspiring and experienced pilots.
