Back in December, pictures of the DJI FPV racing drone surfaced on the web. It has been more than two months now and DJI is still yet to take the wraps off the drone. Now, an unboxing video of the drone has been posted on YouTube.
The video was posted on the YouTube channel SpiderMonkey FPV (seems to have been originally recorded by Dominion Drones) and it leaves nothing to the imagination as to what to expect when it is finally announced. The video shows us the drone and the accompanying FPV goggles and the new FPV controller which comes in a different color from the other two.
From the video, one can see that this is not the retail unit as there is a “NOT FOR SALE” and “DISPLAY DEMO” sticker on the box. The drone itself has a main gimbal camera for recording and four other smaller cameras (two downward-facing ones) whose function is presumed to be for detecting obstacles.
The spec sheet which was posted on Twitter by @JasperEllens reveals that the drone has a 12MP f/2.86 1/2.3” CMOS camera with a 150° field of view. The camera has an ISO range of 1-3200 and can record in both FHD and 4K.
The drone weighs approximately 795 grams and packs a 2000mAh battery capacity that supports a maximum charging power of 90 Watts. The maximum flight time is stated to be 20 minutes while flying at a consistent speed of 40km/h. The controller is a little under half the weight of the drone at 346 grams and it has a maximum transmission distance of 10 kilometers (with no obstruction).
As of the time of writing, there is no info regarding when the drone will be finally unveiled.
