    Is there any power station to charge the DJI FPV batteries like the "Smatree power station for the mavic 2"?

    How do I get that piece you got on your drone to connect my go pro to it? Where can I purchase? Thanks for review

    Two things I like about the DJI FPV quad. You can take off and land more easily. You can take off, go up a 150' and let it hover if you want while you have a coffee and vape. Same with landing. Too much wind just throw it in normal mode, pop the goggles off and you can watch it land nice and soft. Another thing I like is there is a better chance that it will not drop out of the sky when the battery gets low. A traditional FPV quad the voltage drops low when you do punch outs or any other high current maneuver. Usually the voltage bounces back, sometimes it doesn't. If you have a weak pack or flown just a little too long the voltage may drop and not bounce back, then the quad just falls out of the sky with your GoPro attached.

    Maybe you can help me with a problem i am having with my DJI FPV when i mount my Hero 7, Hero 8 and Hero5 Session to the top of the drone. When the Gopro is mounted to the top of the drone and turned on, i have no problem with obtaining satellites (19- 22) BUT when i hit the record button the connected satellites goes to 0 or 4. I have my WiFi and Bluetooth turned off on all my gopros. Do you know how i can correct this problem? Thank You

    The activity mini is really something I want it to be friendly to transport

    Great review! 👍 I'm 100% in agreeing with your thoughts. I purchased this drone b/c I come from a background of flying full collective rc helis. However, I had a really hard time with my orientation so I could never fly it the way I want. I always said to myself "if I can only be in the pilot seat, I would be able to fly better". Well…the DJI FPV definitely fill that void! Not sure or have real interest in doing freestyle with this drone but being able to fly it at 90 mph if I want is really cool! I can't wait to see what DJI have in mind with their FPV lineup in the future.

    Got the drone, and have a few first nervous flights. Agree on everything you said. I'm a model airplane guy, but this gives me the immersive experience and lets me capture footage and pictures from new places. Love it so far.

    Excellent review and echo's what all are saying, I love mine…I am old, never played video games, but I love sitting n my front yard flying this thing around, never go out of sport mode, my mind does not work that fast LoL

    I'm glad we have something like the DJI FPV, where those pilots leaning on the content creation side of flying drones can dip their toes into FPV and have a go at making cinematic FPV shots with less the hassle of learning to fly a completely different drone.

    I remember it being a very controversial drone at the time it was released! Tho in the end it's pretty obvious that drone brings a positive influence on the community as more people got interested in the FPV hobby!

    It's the biggest advantage of the DJI FPV, it's a real deal FPV but you can control it like you would a Mavic!

    I just got my new fpv but my battery will not charge it will blink all 4 lights for a while but will never charge. Any advice?

    Best Buy had this at the holiday $999 price as recent as last week or the week before, so probably see it again in the immediate future.

    Hard to believe it's been out a year already. I didn't get this one because I really fly FPV, but if I were to get an FPV drone this would be it. And mainly for all the fail-safes that you went over in this video. Get look back at. first year with the FPV Drone. And thanks for sharing.

    I think you put words on what most of us feel. We want to be able to fly with some more control rather than just operate but with that gradual learning curve that dji provides. I know we are many who wants this beginner friendly fpv space to grow. Hoping for a dji fpv mini.

    For me, the fpv flying learning progress was actually overnight. I also started flying fpv with the DJI FPV Drone, but i couldn't fly fpv and I didn't make any progress for days then suddenly one night i did (sim) and this progress really happened in moments. Since this moment I was able to learn much faster. But now i am using just Analog with real FPV Quads

    Great summary and I agree with everything. I have around 80 flights on mine now and it is by far my favorite drone (Mini 1 & 2 are my others). I find the camera quality to be excellent, but I am more of a flying guy than camera buff so it meets my needs. Just a couple things to add to your summary that need mention. 1st is the ability to raise and lower the Camera Gimbal which is great for keeping the horizon at the right level when climbing or descending Mountains, also on steep descents it allows the camera to view obstacles that might be in the way. Normal FPV drones have fixed cameras, big drawback. 2nd the AGL indicator is fantastic, really helps prevent getting too close to the ground and crashing, a big plus. 3rd, the ability to use roll stabilization which allows the camera to keep the horizon level at banks of 10 degrees, great for that Cinematic look. I am concerned about the new FAA rules that will require drone and controller location status, seems like that could be a big drawback to this hobby. Thanks again, enjoy your vids.

    What is your opinion about… DJI making the Motion Controller (once the solve the Sue by QFO labs) compatible with most of its drones as a differentiating element in the industry….

    I've had this drone for a year and I'm in the same category as you. Busy dad, work and family takes a huge chunk of my week. I only get to fly this drone occasionally. I don't have the time to venture into the DIY fpv and this drone meets all my needs. Though in manual mode, I've had a few close calls with battery running really low as I forgot to watch the battery meter. The drone doesn't automatically RTH in manual mode 😝

    Great informative update for someone who’s sitting & waiting on the product to mature. Friends have purchased it & I like 👍 it. Awaiting DJIs 2.0 iteration, be it mini or otherwise

    Good video Sean. I have my DJI FPV drone and my Air 2 S drone sitting here on my desk while I watch your video. I love both of these drones. And I also agree the FPV drone fills the niche into fpv for me and have no regrets buying it. It's a keeper. I have tricked mine out with some skins and a few other things to make it my own. I will jump into fpv a little further with some other quads equipped with the DJI FPV system, such as a cinewhoop for more fun. Great stuff, and I hope DJI continues with the innovation going forward. I can't wait to see what comes next ! Cheers from Utah.
