Good news for DJI Avata FPV drone owners . The reason is, DJI officially announced the presence of two new accessories for Avata, namely Googles Integra and RC Motion 2 .
DJI Googles Integra
These two accessories can be said to be an upgraded version of DJI Googles 2 and DJI Motion Controller which also accompanied Avata’s launch last year. Please note Googles 2 is the most compact and light video headset from DJI. Well, Googles Integra still maintains the design.
The main difference between the two is in the features. Googles Integra now carries an integrated battery. So, the battery module is not separate like Googles 2. At Googles 2 the battery and the headset unit are connected via a long cable.
So, on Google’s Integra, the battery module is now attached to the head strap of the headset. With this latest design, Googles Integra is more practical and easy to carry anywhere. Users also won’t be bothered by dangling cables like in Googles 2.
The good news is that the battery module in Googles Integra is also claimed to be very light. So, it will not interfere with user comfort. Battery life can be up to about 2 hours.
Google’s Integra specifications are still similar to Google’s 2. This video headset is still equipped with two Full HD micro OLED screens and DJI O3 + transmission technology. This cutting-edge transmission technology enables highly stable video transmission with ultra-low latency of up to approx. 30 milliseconds. The screen supports a refresh rate of 100 Hz and has received TUV Rheinland Low Blue Light certification. So, it is very safe for the eyes.
In addition, this device is equipped with an integrated GPS module. That way, users can immediately fly Avata drones without the need to connect to a smartphone anymore.
DJI RC Motion 2
For RC Motion 2, at first glance, the design is still similar to the Motion Controller. Both of them still carry motion sensing technology or precision motion detection to fly Avata drones only through hand movements.
The difference between RC Motion 2 and Motion Controller is in the buttons. RC Motion 2 now features a new joystick button design that features an accelerator with reverse function. This means that the Avata drone can now support multi-directional movements, including vertical, backward and tilt when flying.
RC Motion 2 now also provides an Fn button. This button is useful as a shortcut key to access camera settings such as ISO, camera shutter speed, and other setting options without needing to touch the headset.
With this update, RC Motion 2 and Google’s Integra are expected to provide a more intuitive user experience and users can more easily fly Avata drones.
DJI Googles Integra and RC Motion 2 prices
