Potential release date for the DJI Avata 2 drone revealed in official teaser, signaling that it is ready for launch

Just a week after a wave of leaks revealed hands-on videos and retail packaging for a new DJI Avata 2 drone, the drone giant has all but confirmed that the FPV (first-person view) flying machine will be launching on April 11.

A new ‘Ready to Roll’ teaser posted on DJI’s social media and website shows that it’ll be launching a new drone on April 11 at 9am EDT / 2pm BST (or midnight AEST on April 12).

  • DJI has released a teaser for a launch event on April 11
  • The teaser shows an FPV drone that looks a lot like the leaked DJI Avata 2
  • The Avata 2 is expected to be launched alongside a new DJI Goggles 3 headset

While DJI doesn’t name the incoming drone as the Avata 2, its teaser’s graphic does show one that looks identical to the Avata 2 leaks we’ve seen in recent days. So barring a truly strange turn of events, we’ll see its follow-up to the DJI Avata in just under ten days.

FPV drones differ from traditional drones like the DJI Mini 4 Pro by connecting to a headset, which gives the pilot a live view from the drone itself. This means you get an incredible flying experience and also much finer control of your drone’s movements, which helps create impressive videos.

No one is expecting the DJI Avata 2 to be as speedy as the 350kph (217mph) drone in that video, but it should be a better option for beginners looking to get a taste of FPV flying than its predecessor, which landed in August 2022.

DJI Avata 2: what to expect

DJI’s Avata series aren’t pro-level FPV drones like the speedy ones used in the Red Bull video above, but the original was a solid introduction to the genre – and its sequel should round off some of its rough edges.

Our DJI Avata review praised the drone’s image quality, robust design, and Goggles headset, but criticized annoyances like the placement of its microSD card slot and its relatively steep learning curve.

While it still looks like DJI will only be bundling the Avata 2 with its Motion Controller, the drone should be easier to fly, thanks to some rear sensors seen in leaks from the likes of Quadro_News.

Other leaks suggest image quality should get a boost from the new 1/1.3-inch CMOS sensor, which will apparently shoot 4K video and 48MP photos, and your footage will also apparently benefit from new stabilization tech like RockSteady 3.0+ and HorizonSteady.

Leaked images of the Fly More Combo’s retail packaging suggest the Avata 2 will also be quieter in flight than its noisy predecessor. And we’re particularly interested to see what DJI does with its new Goggles 3 headset, which appears to have two cameras on the front.

Could this mean augmented reality powers for the Avata 2? We don’t know for sure yet, but we’ll find out for sure on April 11.
