The DJI Avata is one of my favourite drones, DJI’s second FPV drone offers a small, light and nimble drone, complete with prop guards, it’s not only great to learn FPV, but also robust enough to handle the learning process.
The Goggles that shipped with the Avatar were also the second generation of goggles from DJI, following on from the first DJI FPV drone, the 2nd-gen goggles were significantly smaller and lighter.
Now DJI is at it again with an update, introducing the DJI Goggles Integra and DJI RC Motion 2 controller.
With advanced micro-OLED screen displays, ultra-low-latency DJI O3+ video transmission, and integrated design, DJI Goggles Integra provides a truly integrated, immersive flying experience.
To complement these new goggles, DJI RC Motion 2 offers ergonomic construction and added features to enhance flight control. Together, these two new tools elevate DJI Avata to new levels.
DJI Goggles Integra: Lightweight, Comfortable, and Ready to Soar
FPV Goggles boasts an integrated design that merges the headband and battery into one, freeing pilots from loose connecting cables and allowing them to take the goggles on and off with ease. The built-in battery headband is light, balanced, and incredibly comfortable, offering up to two hours of operating time.
Two HD 1080p Micro-OLED screens deliver true-to-life colors, and stunning highlights, and detailed shadows with an impressive brightness of 700 nits. The screens have a 100 Hz refresh rate and TÜV Rheinland Low Blue Light Certification, ensuring a smoother and more comfortable viewing experience. DJI O3+ video transmission technology offers ultra-low 30 ms latency and stable video transmission for high-speed aerial photography. Built-in GPS allows users to fly without connecting to a smartphone.
DJI RC Motion 2: Your Flight, Your Way
It has never been easier to take control of the sky thanks to the new and improved DJI RC Motion 2. Featuring motion-sensing technology and an upgraded joystick, users of all levels can easily navigate, maneuver, and explore the skies in a unique way.
RC Motion 2 introduces an upgraded joystick and accelerator with a reverse function to support multidirectional flight, including vertical, backward, and sideways, making it easier to adjust the direction or choose a suitable place to land. With precise accuracy and richer dynamic movement, anyone can now tackle complex flight maneuvers with confidence. The Fn dial lets users quickly adjust the camera’s ISO, shutter, and other parameters without having to interact with the goggles.
When combined with DJI Avata and DJI Goggles Integra, the user’s hand movements dictate the aircraft’s flight direction, delivering an immersive flight experience that feels like they are in the pilot seat. With the DJI Fly app, users can also connect the DJI Goggles Integra to their smartphone, display a real-time camera view to their goggles and smartphone simultaneously, and even share the view with friends for a truly stunning and immersive flight experience.

Australia’s skies are controlled by the Civil Aviation Authority (CASA) whole have some pretty restrictive rules including the requirement to always operate with a spotter when flying FPV. This is a blanket rule that’s really a sledgehammer where a precise screwdriver is needed.
Those of us who live in regional areas that operate drones far away from humans, should not be under the same conditions as a reckless 14-yo who tries something dangerous in a crowded city. I really hope CASA find a way to be more nuanced about their regulations to enable FPV to grow and develop as a sport in Australia like it has internationally.
