DJI Introduces the O3 Air Unit to Empower FPV to Truly go the Distance posted: 01/12/2022

The O3 Air Unit Brings Incredibly Reliable, Low-Latency, High-Resolution Image Transmission in a Compact Size to Unleash Boundless Aerial Creativity

DJI, the world's leader in civilian drones and creative camera technology, today introduces the O3 Air Unit, a compact, lightweight FPV camera and transmission module system that delivers an incredibly robust and reliable image to empower users to reach new heights of their immersive flight. A 1/1.7-inch sensor delivers up to 4K/60fps video with a 155 super-wide FOV, all while delivering a 1080p/100fps live feed from up to 10 km away with latency as low as 30 ms. With these features and more, the DJI O3 Air Unit is the perfect addition to a high-performance FPV experience.

Flagship Video Transmission

The backbone of any FPV system is transmission, which is why the O3 Air Unit comes with DJI's premier O3+ system. 2T2R omnidirectional antennas built into the air unit deliver 1080p/100fps H.265 Video Transmission at a max bitrate of 50 Mbps. To help ease users during flight, video transmission covers up to 10 km while providing latency as low as 30 ms. When it senses a crowded signal environment, the O3 Air Unit automatically selects the best signal frequency and uses anti-interference technologies to keep a strong connection to its pilot.

Content-Ready Image Quality

The O3 Air Unit was made just to let users experience and capture flight like never before. The camera module houses a 1/1.7-inch sensor that shoots up to 4K/60fps video at a 155 super-wide FOV. Video can be shot in D-Cinelike color mode, allowing for stunning visual results after color grading and post-processing. The camera is also compatible with the DJI Avata ND filter set to ensure ideal recording in all lighting conditions.

Customizable and Compatible

DJI understands that FPV enthusiasts have unique preferences when it comes to an immersive experience, so the O3 Air Unit was developed accordingly. Canvas mode allows for customization of the on-screen display, ensuring pilots see the OSD display that's right for them. For more options in viewing and control, the Air Unit is compatible with DJI Goggles 2, DJI FPV Goggles V2, and DJI FPV Remote Controller 2.

Awaken with DJI Goggles 2

After its debut in the DJI Avata Pro-View Combo, DJI Goggles 2 is now available in a standalone version. It takes advantage of DJI O3+ transmission for latency as low as 30 ms, delivering a crisp 1080p display through its Micro-OLED screens. Its top-tier performance is complemented by soft, replaceable foam padding that reduces light leakage and SyncSmooth technology for a more fluid live feed that reduces visual fatigue. Built-in diopters are adjustable from +2.0 to -8.0 to let users who wear corrective lenses fly glasses-free.DJI Goggles 2 is compatible with the DJI O3 Air Unit, DJI Avata, and DJI FPV Remote Controller 2.

Additional Features

48-megapixel sensor for superior, high-definition images.

f/2.8 aperture for excellent depth of field.
