The more I've learned about FPV, the less sure I am that what I want is the FPV Combo...although the Black Friday sale is tempting.

I don't necessarily want to see the world like a poorly conducted Part 61 aerobatic flight. I'm quite happy with the fully stabilized view that I get with my Mini-2s. What I want is the immersive visual experience, where I feel like I'm riding the drone, or to use the Pandora analogy, like I *AM* the drone.

So, a couple of questions:

1) IIRC, the DJI FPV drone has "normal" modes where the view is the stabilized view that I'm used to seeing from my Mini-2s. You have to select the "Wild Ride" mode, if that's what you want. Yes?

2) Are there any other DJI drones that are capable of driving the DJI goggles to provide the immersive view, even if the drone doesn't have the 'Wild Ride" mode? For now at least I want to stay "True Blue DJI", so I'm not really interested in any non-DJI options.

Comments?

Thx!

Staying with DJI the Mavic Pro and Mavic 2 can use goggles, but those are the other older "DJI Goggles" (RE or not). Most of it is discontinued but you may still be able to find leftovers or use the 2nd hand market.

Yep, it's not as good as on a Mavic but it's there.

It tends to get boring quick when you don't have the option to get a bit more sporty.

Do not get the DJI FPV if you want to use it differently to a Mavic or a Phantom. It is very fragile for an fpv drone. It is not as capable as an fpv drone in some ways.

This was not posted by a DJI FPV owner. It it grossly inaccurate. Ignore.

I wouldn't recommend it for FPV, especially a beginner to the hobby as it so weak in crashes.


Check 12:30, time stamp in description. One of Joshua Bardwells videos.
My FPV drone, a 5 inch and not an expensive build, even light motors and frame has cartwheeled 8m on rough tarmac and been fine.
At one point, I had smoked a motor earlier and replaced it with a smaller higher kv motor, not for 6s. That motor failed causing it to flip and fail, throttling into the ground from at least 10 metres (34 feet) landing on stony ground and luckily only wear down and damage an arm end + break a 50 cent prop. This would have destroyed the DJI FPV, is also much more difficult to repair. It is less capable as 795grams is too heavy for many fpv pilots. Some of the really really skilled pilots don't use the DJI video system as there is too much latency. You can't upgrade parts or use newer batteries, or different parts.

Correct, I do not own a DJI FPV.

Thanks for your opinion and trying to help.
