According to leaked photos on Twitter and Weibo, DJI is preparing to launch a drone designed to go with its piloting helmet in immersion. The machine would be able in particular to film in 4K / 60 FPS while spinning at nearly 150 km / h.
It is a pack entirely dedicated to piloting in immersion that the Chinese DJI would be about to market. If we are to believe the leaked photos shared on Twitter and Weibo, and relayed by The Verge, this bundle would include a new drone, the FPV headset launched by the brand last year, and a compact controller that had already been seen last month by the Chinese site Hangpai.org.
The peculiarity of the drone integrated in this pack is that it is specially designed for piloting in immersion and not just for taking aerial pictures. The device is therefore intended to follow a new trend, that of first-person cinematic flights based on high-speed twirls. The rendering, as demonstrated in this video or the one below, is spectacular.
A lightning-fast drone
This possible new DJI drone unveiled on Twitter would have 5-inch three-blade motors, and a recording capacity in 4K at 60 FPS with stabilization. Its maximum speed could also reach 150 km / h. A noticeable speed for the general public, even if the competition drones dedicated to piloting in immersion can easily approach the threshold of 200 kilometers, note Engadget.
If DJI FPV drone really came out, I think tech specs could be as follows.
4K 60fps on-board recording
5 inch props
3 flight mode with 150kph maximum speed
Built in FPV camera with remote-adjustable tilt angle
GPS for RTH
Will it come online in a month? let’s see

If this information is correct, and it is necessary as it is to take tweezers, since the objective of DJI would be to synthesize the experience of immersion flight (currently allowed especially by competition drones, cobbled together from often disparate pieces), to bring it to the general public through a “turnkey” pack. We do not know what the price of such a Bundle could be.
We could find out more in the next few days. As noted The Verge, Brendan Schulman, one of DJI’s executives, hinted at the beginning of November that the brand could have a last product under the elbow for the end of the year.
DJI released six new products in the past three weeks. Surely, everyone feels we must be done for the year. pic.twitter.com/e9xet6LheP
