The DJI Avata 2 features a bigger sensor than its predecessor. The 1/1.3-inch CMOS Super-Wide-Angle 12MP camera also expands on the dynamic range available and performs better in low-light scenarios. According to DJI, its ultra-wide-angle lens allows for a viewing angle of up to 155 degrees, offering up unique perspectives and tight shots. The camera also enables immersive aerial photography and HDR videography at up to 4K/60fps, as well as slow-motion footage at 2.7K/120fps.

Combined with the DJI Motion 3, pilots new to the experience are given the power to flip, drift, and roll with little effort on the pilot’s part. One-Push Flip gives users the ability to capture footage while performing 360-degree front/back flips. One-Push Roll provides incredible shots as the drone rolls to the right or left. Finally, One-Push 180 Degree Drift makes high-speed lateral drifts spinning 180 degrees past objects seem easy, according to DJI.

DJI’s Goggle 3 features adjustable diopters and two micro-OLED screens that support a 10-bit enhanced display, with up-to-100Hz refresh rate. The googles are also equipped with binocular cameras that deliver the surrounding environment, which can be superimposed with the live feed from the aircraft at the same time. This allows pilots situational awareness without needing to remove the goggles.
