DJI unveils the O3 Air Unit, a transmission system for quite a lot of third-party drones: Digital Images Evaluate


Main drone producer DJI ventured into the FPV (first-person view) world in March, 2021, with the unique FPV drone adopted by this 12 months’s Avata. Now, it is providing FPV fliers an opportunity to include a few of its know-how onto quite a lot of third-party rigs with the introduction of the O3 Air Unit.

Measuring 21.2×20×19.5 mm, the O3 Air Unit’s digicam is similar one used within the DJI Avata. The module boasts a 48MP Sort 1/1.7 (7.6×5.7mm) sensor with a set F2.8 aperture and a super-wide 155º FOV. As much as 4K/60p video will be captured and D-Cinelike coloration mode is out there to provide customers extra flexibility when post-processing their movies.

The transmission system measures 32.5 × 30.5 × 14.5mm (1.3 x 1.3 x .5″) and weighs 36g (1.3oz). It is constructed on DJI’s O3+ system and makes use of omnidirectional antennas constructed into the air unit to ship 1080/100p H.265 video transmission at a bitrate as much as 50Mbps. Video transmission covers an space as much as 10km (6.21 miles) at a latency as little as 30 milliseconds. DJI says that within the occasion of encountering a crowded sign setting, the O3 will detect the strongest sign, whereas utilizing its anti-interference applied sciences, to make sure the pilot stays related.

DJI’s Goggles 2, launched with the Avata, are suitable with the O3 Air Unit.

The O3 Air Unit is suitable with the DJI FPV Goggles V2, launched with the unique DJI FPV drone, and the Goggles 2 which debuted with the Avata. The latter encompasses a touchscreen, replaceable foam padding that reduces gentle leakage, and built-in diopters which might be adjustable from +2.0 to -8.0. DJI’s FPV Distant Controller 2, which permits customers to fly in Guide (M) mode, is suitable as properly.

The O3 Air Unit is customizable. Canvas mode permits for pilots to customise their on-screen show (OSD) to allow them to view the knowledge that fits them.

Different extra options embrace:

  • RockSteady EIS (Digital Picture Stabilization) know-how for smoother footage.
  • Mild weight and compact.
  • 2.7K/120p gradual movement video.
  • Transmission fluency by way of flagship algorithm that enhances reside footage smoothness and minimal latency.
  • Card Reader mode by way of USB connection for fast file studying.
  • 20GB of built-in storage within the transmission module.

The DJI O3 Air Unit is out there immediately by DJI’s web site, together with most licensed FPV retailers, for $229 and consists of the Digicam Module, Transmission Module, Antenna, and 3-in-1 cable. DJI Goggles 2 can also be obtainable for $649 and consists of the goggles, battery, eyeglass frames, display protector, headband, energy cable, dual-band antenna, and OTG cable. DJI didn’t present a hyperlink to their Distant Controller 2 because it appears to be back-ordered with many retailers.

An set up information was additionally created for smoother arrange. Joyful flying (and, doubtless, soldering).
