DJI Open is the new FPV drone of the Chinese company.
But what the heck does FPV mean?
It is an acronym that stands First Person Viewwhich we could translate as “first person view”.
Applied to the world of drones, this abbreviation implies compatibility with a viewer that allows you to have the same view of the drone in front of your eyes. Basically you see in real time what the drone sees, thus being able to take advantage of a unique point of view both for observation and for the production of videos and photos.
Let’s be clear, the presence of the viewer does not imply the use of virtual or augmented reality. In this case it is like being in a dark room with the screen in front of your eyes, so as to focus only on the images that are transmitted by the drone in real time.
All this following local regulations and with the presence of an observer, that is a person who, without viewers, checks where and what your flying gadget is doing.

“DJI Avata was created to awaken that desire to fly present in all of us, with immersive flight technology that allows anyone to explore that almost out-of-body experience that is FPV flight – he said. Ferdinand Wolf, Creative Director of DJI. – DJI Avata is amazing to fly even for a novice pilot and offers advanced safety features that will give anyone the freedom to try all kinds of creative stunts. Paired with DJI Goggles 2 and DJI Motion Controller, DJI Avata looks as fast as the wind. Whether you’re flying for pure fun, making great clips for social media or wowing viewers in the production studio, DJI Avata will show you how its thrilling flying experience takes you into a new world of jaw-dropping possibilities. “
