Tech Highlights:

  • @DealsDrone and @OsitaLV have revealed new information about the Avata, DJI’s next-generation first-person view (FPV) drone. Due to succeed the DJI FPV, the DJI Avata is rumoured to be launching alongside new FPV Goggles. However, the pair may not arrive before the end of this month, contrary to earlier rumours.

(Weibo, the photo’s source) A new leak of the DJI Avata on Weibo appears to be its final design. The DJI Avata, the replacement for the DJI FPV, is still not available. There are already rumours that the Avata may not even reach the market by the end of summer 2022, despite expectations that the small drone would launch earlier this year. Meanwhile, a fresh hand-on image of the Avata showing the drone in flight has surfaced online.

Instead, @DealsDrone asserts that DJI has delayed the Avata’s launch. Writing on Twitter, the leaker claims that to have heard news about DJI expanding factory capacity and moving producing to a new location as reasons why the Avata will not arrive this month. Unfortunately, @DealsDrone has not outlined when the Avata will be available, although DroneDJ infers that its release may drift into the autumn.

Separately, a hands-on photo of the Avata about to take off has surfaced on Weibo. Embedded above, the design shown matches those seen in earlier leaks. Reputedly, the Avata will weigh less than 500 g, double the weight of the Mini 3 Pro. Additionally, the Avata is rumoured to rely on the same 48 MP camera as its smaller sibling, which also has a 1/1.3-inch optical format, an f/1.7 aperture and is capable of shooting videos in 4K at 60 FPS. Pricing has not leaked yet, but we imagine that this will emerge closer to the drone’s release.
