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 plans to settle comfortably in the segment of FPV (first-person view) drones, these devices come with a helmet to track the movements as if you were installed in the cockpit! Last year, the manufacturer launched a first model, soberly christened as DJI FPV, and it doesn’t stop there.

A second model is currently in development and according to many online leaks, the launch should be soon. This new drone is designed to fly inside buildings, although of course we can fly it in the open air. The Avata, as that’s its name, can shoot stabilized videos in 4K and can come with a DJI Goggles 2 helmet and a Motion Controller, according to the packaging on the run.

Photos show a drone with four propellers (protected to minimize damage in the event of a fall), the whole thing barely bigger than the hand. The device must not weigh more than 500 grams. A video posted by a reliable leaker, OsitaLV, shows the drone in full flight, being controlled with the DJI controller while the user wears a helmet that does not resemble a model released by the manufacturer.

Technical details about the camera are missing to give an idea of the quality of the sensor, but another leaker assured that it was comparable to that of the Mini 3 Pro, another DJI drone. It remains to be seen when the manufacturer plans to put an end to all these leaks by officially unveiling the Avata. This can happen in the second semester.
