DJI has left no stone unturned when releasing their newest drone, the DJI Mavic Pro Drone. Released around the same time as the much-awaited GoPro Karma Drone, the Mavic Pro has all the features you could ask for in an advanced aerial machine.
It is equipped with impressive shooting capabilities and can record videos in 4K, has a number of intelligent and autonomous flight features and all this in a body that can be folded up to be the size of a water bottle!
In addition, the leading quadcopter and drone manufacturer company has also announced the DJI Goggles along with the drone, which will help in increasing the flight’s capabilities and provides a fully immersive experience to the fliers.
DJI Goggles – Work With The DJI Mavic Pro Drone For A Fully Immersive Flight
The Goggles look similar to any modern VR headset, but work to provide direct video feed from the Mavic Pro drone in real time. It uses DJI's OcuSync tech, lets users see a 90-degree view from the drone in 1080p resolutions, and also lessens lag to 120 milliseconds.
You can also control the drone using the goggles, as looking down tilts the camera down, and looking left or right makes it change direction, allowing for another cool way for flying it! You will even have the option to pair two Goggles together, so you and a friend can view the video feed at the same time.
