This is my take on the DJI FPV Drone. Quite a controversial drone - heavily advertised by an army of top tier influencers, too high expectations and a quick wake up for the "early adopters". I'm one of them as I ordered this (NOT SPONSORED) on the first day (actually before knowing any hard facts). I'm NOT DISSAPOINTED now - as so many are, many sent it back (or they crashed it too soon ;)
To me this is the first drone with REALLY GOOD video transmission. The immersion was never higher and the sensation of flight can be experienced as never before with a drone (I was about to write "in a drone" :)

If you think about ordering this drone (and you're in EU) check my favourite shop in Germany - Globe Flight:
I just saw they even have a "refurbished" 100€ off version there atm.

►Quick FACTS:
Weight: 800gr
Flighttime: 8-16mins (20mins will not happen :)
Batteryweight: 270gr
Video transmission: DUAL Band! (5.8 and/or 2.4GHz)
dynamic power output of up to 1.4 watts in FCC mode (25/100mw in ce)

What I love:
VIDEO TRANSMISSION - like a dream! very smooth and sharp
VERSATILITY medium speed, some acro but also stable and reliable to put in the air as a camera, change tilt-angle of cam (for faster chase or slow/hovering to inspect something...
RELIABLE, CONFIDENT flying modes (RTH, battery management, H icon)
EFFICIENT (consider the weight! - if you fly it right you get 15mins)

What I hate:
CE mode performance (which isnt bad if you consider it's only 25mw - FCC mode goes up to 1.4watts either 2.4 or 5.8 - where 2.4 would mean much better range usually)
500m ALT limitation (understood but not good for the mountains)
PROPWASH - on lower throttle flights it shakes quite a lot - ugly video
FLIGHTMODE TRANSITION - from manual to N or S:
the GPS position hold is much too agressive in breaking
DURABILITY not so much an issue for a careful pilot like me...

This is my biggest video project so far :)
330gb of source footage compiled, condensed to 7gb of 4k60 video. Rendered 3hrs (because Magix Vegas once again wouldnt wanna use my GPU for help).
