I have just spent a few hours calibrating and setting up my new DJI FPV drone. Forgive me for the newbie question, but what is the difference between the ''DJI Digital FPV system'' and the ''DJI Drone FPV system''? I thought the signal was digital regardless? I presume that to get the higher quality digital image, a new camera needs to be purchased and fitted / the ''DJI digital FPV'' camera, that does not come with the DJI FPV combo?

DJI Digital FPV system = Air Unit + DJI Goggles (optionally Controller v1)
DJI Drone FPV system = DJI Drone+ DJI Googles + Controller v2


the are really not related, the only component that is the same are the Goggles.
the signals (well firmware) are not compatible.
just because systems are digital does not meant they are compatible.


the digital system can be fitted to any drone (or aircraft) that you can buy or build yourself.

the drone system, is complete kit with everything ... that you cannot use with other drones
(except goggles if you purchase and air unit)

basically DJI produce the airunit/goggles system first, and released to the diy market,
probably to gain experience in the fpv market... before releasing thier own complete system

The ''DJI Digital FPV system'' is a standalone camera and transmitter made for use on custom built quads, it's basically version 1. The FPV drone has version 2 of that which is quite an improvement built-in.
To use the older gear with the goggles V2 you have to switch them to the ''DJI Digital FPV system'' mode.

Hello thetectnobear, I have a skyhunter (Airplane) I built several years age for (fpv Analog system/w Fat Shark goggles). I've been thinking about converting the old analog system to the dji digital air unit or caddx air unit and using my dji V2 fpv goggles. Would they be compatible? Thanks to Dronemanjem for bringing this subject up.
