DJI Avata 2 price, specs and release date announced

Compact FPV drone with enhanced Google and controller

Avata II

DJI has launched the Avata 2, a drone designed as an easy and controllable route into FPV flying. The new drone has been directly aimed at beginner FPV pilots. While the pace might be slower than the seemingly rocket-fueled FPV racing drones, the speed, agility and features should be enough to thrill even the most experienced pilots. The release of the Avata 2 follows the success of its predecessor, the DJI Avata, which was well known for its immersive FPV capabilities and outstanding and solid design; you can check out the full review of the DJI Avata review here.

The Avata, unlike the more conventional DJI Mini 3 and 4 Pro drones, which are designed for standard aerial photography, the Avata 2 focuses on providing an FPV experience. What that means is that the drone design is quite different from all other consumer DJI drones, with the four propellers on fixed arms. The arms themselves are actually all part of the body moulding, which creates a far more robust design. 

The new Avata 2 is also far smaller than the larger original Avata, which firstly brings it more in line with traditional FPV racers and also closer in size to the DJI Mini Drones. 

The other big design difference is the camera. While the camera is still very capable and will capture stunning visuals, you can check out our full review of the DJI Avata 2 review here. The camera is pivoted on a two-axis gimbal rather than the more common three-axis gimbal. In the past, this would have significantly restricted the quality of the drone’s image stabilisation; however, with the advances in digital stabilisation, the stabilisation is rock steady. 

This camera is also more in line with FPV racers, which usually feature a fixed camera. This camera is designed to link into the new DJI Goggles 3 and enables a first-person view from the perspective of the drone. This gives the pilot a unique perspective of the work and an exciting experience. It’s worth noting that here in the UK, you’ll also need a spotter, essentially someone who’s you’re eyes and ears whilst you fly, as the Drone code dictates that you must always have a visual line of sight of the drone. 

While DJI’s other drones are focused on imaging, the Avata is more about the fun of flying and the experience. The speed, while fast, is more controllable than standard FPVs, and the whole experience is far more about having fun—so much fun.

Key Features of the DJI Avata 2:

  • Enhanced immersive FPV flight experience with intuitive motion control.
  • Superior image quality with an upgraded sensor and increased flight time.
  • Compatible with DJI Goggles 3 and DJI RC Motion 3 for advanced control.
  • Easy-to-execute flips, rolls, and drifts with one-push commands.
  • 23 minutes of flight time with PD fast charging support.
  • Improved image stabilization, comprehensive safety features, and enhanced connectivity.

Taking a deeper dive into some of the new features. The camera on the Avata 2, while remaining small, features a larger sensor and, again, an ultra-wide-angle lens, allowing for low-light performance and aerial photography at up to 4k/60fps. While the camera is mounted on a small gimbal, this isn’t the usual three-way style, so additional stability is applied through DJI’s RockSteady and HorizonSteady technologies – which, as I saw with the DJI Osmo Action 4 review here is exceptional.

Safety features are also upgraded and include:

  • An updated integrated propeller guard.
  • Emergency stop.
  • Automatic return-to-home.
  • New sensors for low-altitude or indoor flights.

Improved battery packs, not compatible with the original Avata, extended flight and fast charging times, alongside the ability to share FPV footage easily through the app, all make the Avata 2 quite an upgrade from the original Avata.

As always, the new drone comes with several purchasing options, including different combo packs and accessories. The DJI Avata 2 is available for both novice and experienced pilots.
