Clues and leaks are piling up around DJI’s next drone! The Avata has indeed passed a head in a video, and several photos show the design of the device designed to fly indoors.
DJI intends to settle comfortably in the segment of FPV (first-person view) drones, these devices supplied with a helmet to follow the movements as if you were installed in the cockpit! Last year, the manufacturer launched a first model soberly baptized DJI FPV, and it will not stop there.

A second model is currently in full development, and according to the many online leaks, its launch should be soon. This new drone has been designed to fly inside buildings, although we can obviously fly it in the open air. The Avata, since that is its name, will be able to shoot stabilized videos in 4K and it could be supplied with a DJI Goggles 2 helmet as well as a Motion Controller, according to theon the run.

Photos show a drone with four propellers (protected to limit damage in the event of a fall), the whole being barely larger than the hand. The device should weigh within 500 grams. A video posted by a reliable leaker, OsitaLV, shows the drone in full flight, it is piloted with the DJI controller while the user wears a helmet that does not resemble any model released by the manufacturer.
looks like Avata has somatosensory support, and it was really under KOL’s evaluation

Technical details regarding the camera are lacking to get an idea of the quality of the sensor, however another leaker assured that it was similar to that of the Mini 3 Pro, another DJI drone. It remains to be seen when the manufacturer intends to put an end to all these leaks by officially unveiling the Avata. This could happen during the second semester.
