DJI introduces O3 Air Unit so that FPV drones can truly go the distance!

The new DJI O3 Air Unit’s ultra-reliable, low-latency, high-resolution image transmission in a small package allows for limitless aerial creativity.

The DJI O3 Air Unit is a small, lightweight FPV camera and transmission module system that delivers an incredibly robust and reliable image to empower users to achieve new levels of immersive flight.

DJI, the world leader in consumer camera drones and creative camera technology, is introducing the DJI O3 Air Unit today.

The DJI O3 Air Unit has a 1/1.7-inch sensor that records video at up to 4K/60 frames per second with a 155° super-wide field of view and transmits a live 1080p/100 frames per second feed with a latency as low as 30 milliseconds from up to 6 miles away.

The DJI O3 Air Unit is the ideal addition for a high-performance FPV experience because it has all of these features and more.

Flagship video transmission with the DJI O3 Air Unit

Transmission is the foundation of any FPV system, which is why the O3 Air Unit includes DJI’s top-of-the-line O3+ system. The air unit’s 2T2R omnidirectional antennas transmit video at a maximum bitrate of 50 Mbps at 1080p/100fps in H.265 format.

Video transmission provides latency as low as 30 ms and has a range of up to 6 miles to make users’ flights more comfortable.

The O3 Air Unit automatically chooses the best signal frequency and employs anti-interference technologies to maintain a strong connection to its pilot when it detects an overcrowded signal environment.

FPV image quality that is ready for social media

With the DJI O3 Air Unit, users can experience and record flight like never before. The camera module contains a 1/1.7-inch sensor with a 155° super-wide FOV that can capture video at up to 4K/60fps.

When video is recorded in D-Cinelike color mode, color grading, and post-processing, stunning visual effects are possible.

To ensure ideal recording in all lighting conditions, the camera is also compatible with the ND filter set.

DJI Air O3 is compatible and customizable

The O3 Air Unit was created by DJI with the understanding that FPV enthusiasts have specific preferences when it comes to an immersive experience.

Canvas mode enables on-screen display customization, ensuring that pilots see the OSD that is most appropriate for them.

The Air Unit is compatible with the DJI FPV Remote Controller 2, DJI FPV Goggles V2, and DJI Goggles 2 for additional viewing and control options.

DJI Goggles 2

Following its debut in the DJI Avata Pro-View Combo, DJI Goggles 2 is now offered separately. The Micro-OLED screens deliver a clear 1080p display with a latency as low as 30 ms, thanks to DJI’s O3+ transmission.

Soft, replaceable foam padding that reduces light leakage and SyncSmooth technology for a more fluid live feed that lessens visual fatigue complement its top-notch performance.

Users who wear corrective lenses can fly without glasses thanks to built-in diopters that can be adjusted from +2.0 to -8.0. The DJI O3 Air Unit, DJI Avata, and DJI FPV Remote Controller 2 are all compatible with the DJI Goggles 2.
