DJI HDL FPV Transmission
The DJI digital FPV system uses DJI HDL FPV technology (DJI HD Low Latency FPV Transmission - FPV technology low latency high-definition transmission), which integrates a dual-band transmission mechanism to provide integrated management of the entire system and a stable, uninterrupted connection. DJI HDL FPV offers ultra-low end-to-end latency of 28 milliseconds, similar to high-performance analog systems, a maximum transmission range of 4 km, with anti-jamming technology to ensure a reliable signal throughout the flight.only ultra-low latency, but crisp HD quality footage at 120fps, which enhances the overall FPV flight experience and is ideal for high-speed moments. Video recording can be carried out both on a microSD card installed in the slot of the video transmitting module, and on a microSD card installed in the slot of FPV goggles. The video transmitter module writes video in two modes: 1080P @ 60fps and 720P @ 120fps. FPV goggles write exclusively in 720P at 120 fps.
DJI recommends using a digital FPV system in tandem with racing drone components such as:
- Frame: LASER HD
- System: Tmotor F55APROⅡ F4 HD STACK
- Motors: Tmotor HOM-KV1750 / Tmotor F40PROⅢ-KV2400
- Propellers: Tmotor T5143S / 3-blade Hurricane
Thanks to the Focus Mode, the system can limit the signal bitrate to the center of the frame, canceling out any interference, thus keeping the image clear even in difficult conditions.
Pilots can share the stream with other DJI FPV goggles that are set to Audience mode, allowing viewers to see what the riders are seeing.
8 channels 8 drones
8 frequency channels are available to the user, so you can easily carry out a race with eight participants. This approach reduces the effect of crosstalk and provides optimal flying conditions.
The DJI FPV Video Transmitter has two antennas, each of which is connected to a receiver and transmitter, thus providing more wide signal coverage, which means more reliable image transmission. While DJI FPV Goggles are equipped with four omnidirectional antennas that support left-hand circular polarization, which improves signal reception and interaction between all FPV system components.
DJI FPV software feedback control equipment that allows users to remotely set parameters for DJI FPV goggles, DJI FPV video transmitter and DJI FPV cameras, stabilizing and reducing common mistakes.
Depending on where the flight is, the user can choose one of three available shooting modes that will allow you to achieve a more optimal picture display and, accordingly, more comfortable FPV piloting:
- Standard Mode
- Racing Mode
- LED Mode
