Seeing that there’s an influx of mavic pros going up for sale and that I’m mostly using my mini 2 right now - I’m planning on selling the pro and upgrading to something more current.
My initial thoughts were to go for a mavic air 2 but I’m also thinking of the DJI fpv as a fun addition to my collection.
Any advice, suggestions or feedback on the above would be welcomed.
Something that looks a bit like this?
What is that @tom.at.rye ?
I was tempted by fpv previously and ordered the emax tiny hawk 2 freestyle at Xmas.
Sadly it never arrived, I got a refund and bought the mini instead.
It’s something called an emac buzz freestyle… Not sure exactly what it is but it looks cool!
I’d deff go for fpv if I were you. A tiny hawk freestyle is a very good choice…
Don’t. The Air 2S is around the corner.
I ask this every time this question comes up.
What’s your budget?
Nobody can make any sensible recommendations until we know if you want to spend £200 quid or £2,000 quid.
I’d hope to get around £500 for the pro with the fly more and extras.
Then I’d probably match that again if needs be.
Worst case I’d get something on interest free.
So really budgets not an issue up until £1500 let’s say
It does look cool.
Although I know what I’m like and would probably opt for the DJI fpv for the better image quality.
I think a dji air unit incorporated into a regular freestyle drone frame would give you image quality at lower price with less risk of losing a lot of cash when you crash
It’s what I’m considering as the next step…
That’s the step I took a couple of weeks ago…
V1 DJI Goggles, DJI FPV controller, and iFlight Titan DC2 ready built with DJI Air Unit fitted The drone is under 250g with a 450mAh battery so in theory I can fly it pretty much anywhere, though while I’m learning to fly FPV I’m keeping to large empty fields
I’m also building up a DC5 using a spare Air Unit I got with the goggles for when I get a bit better at flying
Nice set up.
What did that set you back?
About £1200, but I got two spare Air Units with the goggles
The drone itself was a tad over £300 ready to fly, batteries were £45 for three
That’s within my budget.
I’ll check YouTube and see what it’s like.
My first flight was a little bumpy, but no damage at all to the drone

Ah yes. I think I watched this when you first posted it.
My only reservation with a fpv set up like this is the time it takes to learn.
With the DJI I’d be flying and taking pretty good pictures almost out of the box
I’m doing this in addition to flying my two DJIs, which are much better suited to photography
Hi Mart, where did you get it from ? Was thinking of banggood but wouldn’t mind buying from a UK seller with a bit of advice since I need everything and want it as ready to fly as can be.
I got it from quadcopters.co.uk, but it’s showing as out of stock now
It’s this the cheapest way of getting hold of v1 goggles and an air unit?
That looks a very good price - the air unit alone costs £170, and the frame is £60…
I’m hovering over buy now…
