DJI Avata is the first DJI Cinewhoop and is expected to arrive this summer

Just after the launch of the DJI Mini 3 Pro, the drone maker started leaking information again for its next new drone, the DJI Avata, which seems to be a DJI Cinewhoop drone expected to be launched this summer.

The seems to be an attempt by the Chinese drone maker to create the first DJI Cinewhoop drone that is very lightweight, ideal for indoor use, and able to take really good aerial photos and video. Expect a quality level similar to the Pro, which is really impressive as it gives the with its 1-inch sensor a run for its money.

This morning, DealsDrone tweeted the following information and photos.

  • Avata is compact and weighs about 500g
  • Can fly indoors
  • The photo quality is much better (guess that the Mini 3 Pro is the same)
  • Greatly improved battery life
  • Manual mode is not supported
  • Head chase mode
  • Vibration function
  • Touchpad for glasses menu
  • Glasses can connect to phone

It seems that the images below are illustrations of what the DJI indoor drone could look like. We do not believe that these images resemble the final production-ready DJI Avata.

  1. No manual mode? No thank you. That’s thr beauty of FPV. Once you’ve got the hang of Acro, anything else feels like you’re fighting the flight controller to get the drone to move when and where you want. I realize this isn’t going to be aimed committed DPV enthusiasts or professionals. But still, taking away full manual will cost them sales IF the image quality is up to snuff.

    DJI is both the best and worst thing to happen to the drone industry. They without a doubt set the technology bar bu. And while I’m thrilled that they have democratized RC flight, they have helped create some huge problems that the industry and hobby have yet to overcome. Making it so simple is good I people will do their part and learn the regulations as well as etiquette. But making it so simple also allowed people looking for a shortcut to achieve things that those before them had to work very hard to accomplish. There is a reason that in all of the years of RC flight there were no issues. Its because rhe barrier to entry was both expense and skill. DJI figured out to how to lower, if not erase, those barriers.

    I’m very fortunate because I have turned my hobby into a career and it had been fantastic though not always easy. I am all for simplification but not at the expense of safety or professionalism. The FPV hobbyis complex and involved. It requires a little bit of knowledge in a broad range of subjects. That makes it complicated. That was part of the attraction for me. I loved learning how the boards went together and how to assemble a frame and how to program the ESCs or flight controller. I loved learning about radio frequencies and how to be a good camera operator. It’s involved and holds my attention and that’s before you even put one up in the air.

    I hope that this is another amazing product from DJI. But I also hope that it’s just hard enough and expensive enough to keep the non-committal away.
