· Product Introduction

The DJI Avata Drone with a built-in propeller guard, is compact and portable. Thanks to its size, it can fly in both indoor and outdoor scenarios, hover like a hummingbird, and return to the home point automatically. Its camera has a 1/1.7''CMOS image sensor, and when working with its gimbal, it is capable of recording 4K 60fps ultra-high-definition videos. Its max hovering time approximates 18 minutes. Click here to learn more about DJI Avata Specs.

The DJI Avata Drone adopts the most edge-cutting DJI O3+ image transmission technology, and can be used with two partners: the goggles and remote control device. In environments without interferences, its max transmission distance reaches 6 km (SRRC), max flight altitude 500 m, and max video bitrate 50 Mbps, bringing you a next-level immersive flight experience.
* Please notice any unexpected factors before flight. For example, in some regions, the max flight altitude is limited to 120 m, which can be unlocked through flight license application.

· How to Remove the Gimbal Protector

[Important] Prior to powering on the drone, remove its gimbal protector.
  • During power-on, the gimbal vibrates and runs self-check*. If the gimbal protector isn't removed, it may damage the motor or affect its life expectancy, or even impact the flight safety (If the drone is powered on without activation, the gimbal will not vibrate and will not run self-check).
  • To safeguard the camera lens and gimbal axis arm, you'd better mount the gimbal protector to the drone after each time of use.

· How to Remove the Gimbal Protector
Pry the top of the gimbal protector gently, and then remove it.

· How to Get it Charged
· Choose an Adapter
   As DJI Avata does not come with an adapter, you can refer to the following operations:
   1. Charge the drone and goggles: with a PD charger. The given USB-C to USB-C power cable is to be used with a PD charger.
    · If you need one, we recommend DJI 30W USB-C Charger. It will take around 90 minutes to get the drone fully charged, and around 100 minutes to get the goggles fully charged.
   2. Charge the motion controller: with a micro USB charger connected to a Type-C cable (Fast charging is not supported). If being used with a 5V 2A charger, it will take around 2.5 hours to get the controller fully charged.
    · If you need one, please go to a third-party platform and search by “10W USB Charger”.
    · Please do not use a charger higher than 5V to charge DJI Motion Controller, especially fast charging power adapter. Otherwise, DJI Motion Controller will be damaged and cannot be used.

· How to Get it Charged

· How to Download and Export the Files

· Store the files
The internal storage of the DJI Avata drone is 20 GB. Files are stored in the internal storage by default if a microSD card is not installed, and the drone can record 4K 60fps videos for around 18 minutes.

As DJI Avata does not come with a memory card, please choose one of the following if you need:
(The drone can support a memory card with the capacity up to 256 GB)
Sandisk Extreme U3 V30 A1 32GB microSDXC
Sandisk Extreme Pro U3 V30 A1 32GB microSDXC
Kingston CANVAS GO Plus U3 V30 A2 64GB microSDXC
Kingston CANVAS React Plus U3 V90 A1 64GB microSDXC
Kingston CANVAS React Plus U3 V90 A1 128GB microSDXC
Kingston CANVAS React Plus U3 V90 A1 256GB microSDXC
Samsung Pro plus V30 U3 V30 A2 256GB microSDXC

· DJI Goggles 2 (included in the Pro-View Combo) and DJI FPV Goggles V2 (included in the Fly Smart Combo) do not come with the internal storage, but can be equipped with a microSD card. After a memory card is installed, you can use it for shooting photos/videos, keeping cache files, and recording screen.
If you won't use it for caching files or recording screen, the memory card is not a must.

· Install and remove a memory card
If you have purchased a memory card, you can insert it into the black memory card adapter, which can be attached to the TF slot of the computer for further file transfer. Also, the memory card can be inserted into the drone without the card adapter.
Please see below for how to install and remove a memory card:
  - Install memory card
SD Card-1.gif
  - Remove memory card
SD Card-2 .gif


· Export the files
(Please export the files when the aircraft is off.)
The files are stored in two locations: cache files in the goggles' memory card, and persistent files in the drone's internal storage and memory card.
Cache files: are recorded transmission view. Due to low clarity and low smoothness, the recorded videos use a little memory space and are easy to be previewed, or you can export them through connecting the goggles to the computer.
Persistent files: are files shot by the drone camera. You can set higher resolution and frame rate, which make high-quality images. However, these files take a lot of space and you'd better download them for editing and sharing. You can export the files through connecting the USB-C port of the drone to the computer.

Watch this video for how to export the files:

Note
After files are exported, please be sure to cover the USB-C port and microSD card slot properly in case of any damage to the propeller.

· Tips for Flight Safety

We've rounded up some coping tips for flight safety and we'd like to share them with you.  
There are four parts, including the Environmental Considerations, Pre-flight Checklist, Precautions During Flight, and How to Find Your Drone. We hope this can help someone in need.

· Environmental Considerations

   1. Only fly in environments that are clear of magnetic or radio interference, buildings, and other obstacles.

   2. Do not fly above or near large crowds.

   3. Only fly in authorized areas. Stay well away from GEO zones and restricted zones to prevent your drone from entering these zones by mistake and getting flyaway.

   4. It is not recommended to fly your drone in scenic spots, historical sites, parks, and the vicinity of government and military institutions. Although these places are not officially demarcated as restricted zones, they are very likely to be controlled areas. The signal of the remote controller may be lost during the flight if you fly the drone in these areas, and the drone may unexpectedly fly away.

   5. Do not fly the aircraft near areas with magnetic or radio interference, including Wi-Fi hotspots, routers, Bluetooth devices, high-voltage lines, large-scale power transmission stations, radar stations, mobile base stations, and broadcasting towers. Otherwise, the wireless transmission performance of the aircraft may be affected by interference, and the aircraft cannot fly normally.

· Pre-flight Checklist

   1. Make sure that the remote controller and aircraft batteries are fully charged. (It is recommended to fully charge the battery and then fly the drone.)

   2. Make sure that the propellers are mounted properly. Check whether the propellers are broken or bent, and whether all the propellers are unfolded.

   3. Connect your mobile device to the remote controller. Power on the remote controller first and then power on the aircraft. Unfold the remote controller antennas and check whether the remote controller is linked with the aircraft. Check whether there are any warnings shown under Aircraft Status in the app, such as compass, IMU, or vision sensors error). Check whether the image transmission signal is strong at the takeoff point. When "Ready to Go" is shown on the app screen and a "HomePoint updated" prompt is displayed, enjoy your flight.

   4. It is recommended to set "No RC Signal Action" to "RTH" under the remote controller Settings in the app. (The aircraft will automatically return to the Home Point when the remote controller signal is lost.)

   5. It is recommended to set the RTH Altitude higher than the height of obstacles in the surrounding environment to avoid collisions during RTH.

· Precautions During Flight
   1. Make sure that the antenna of the remote controller is aligned with the flight direction of the aircraft during flight, and pay attention to the image transmission signal strength. If a warning stating that the signal is weak or lost is displayed in the app, please try adjusting the antenna to make it pointed in the direction of the aircraft.

   2. Make sure that there are no obstacles between the remote controller and the aircraft. Otherwise, the signal may be lost.

   3. If the image transmission signal is lost but the aircraft can be controlled, please try adjusting the antenna to make it pointed in the direction of the aircraft, and tap the map in the lower-left corner of the app screen to check the current position of the aircraft and real-time flight path. Then control the aircraft to fly back to the Home Point based on the flight path shown in the flight map.

   4. Please pay attention to the height of surrounding buildings and use the remote controller to control the aircraft’s speed and altitude to avoid collisions. If the signal between the drone and controller cannot be restored, please immediately press and hold the RTH button on the remote controller, and release the button until the remote controller makes beeping sounds (D-D-D).

   5. Go to the location of the Home Point recorded in the app and wait for the aircraft to return. (If the Home Point is updated during flight, please go to the updated Home Point.)


· How to Find Your Drone
   1. If the drone fails to return to the Home Point, the 'Find My Drone' feature on the DJI app might just help you recover it. (In the map, the red arrow displays the last known location of the drone, and the blue arrow displays the user's current position.) Tap the red arrow and the aircraft makes a beeping sound while repeatedly flashing lights. (Precondition: The aircraft is not powered off, and the remote controller and the aircraft are still connected.)

   2. If the position of the drone recorded by the Find My Drone function is inaccurate due to a poor GPS signal, you can determine the coordinates and status of the flyaway drone by checking the flight records. If the position cannot be determined, contact DJI Support.

Tips:
   1. If the position of the drone is determined, but the drone has fallen into water or a place that is difficult to reach (such as a tree, roof, or cliff), do not risk your personal safety to attempt to take it back.

   2. DJI provides free flight data analysis service if your drone is under warranty to help you identify the cause of the accident.



· Tips for Choosing Accessories

DJI Avata has multiple great accessories, helping put the icing on the cake.

· Popular Accessories
DJI Avata Fly More Kit: is a cost-saving package, containing 2 intelligent flight batteries, and 1 charging hub.

DJI Avata ND Filters Set (ND8/16/32): applies an optimal material that reduces light, giving no changes in hue of color rendition. Through selecting proper filters, you can control the aperture/shutter speed in a freer way that helps create stunning multiple exposure images.

DJI 65W Portable Charger: applies the GaN technology, which can speed up the charging process. Though it is smaller in size, it has two output ports: USB-C and USB-A, and can charge the intelligent flight battery and remote control device simultaneously. It supports PPS and PD protocols, can charge your phone and laptop.

DJI Goggles Carry More Backpack: is waterproof, and provides a comprehensive protection for the goggles and the drone. The inner dividers are soft and allow you to customize the interior compartments to fit the gear you would like to bring with.

For more information about accessories, please go to DJI Store.

Thanks a lot!

One additional questions please:

Hello there, thank you for your inquiry, may we double confirm if you were referring to the eyeglass frame? If yes, if you need astigmatism correction or if the goggles’ diopter is unsuitable, you can purchase additional corrective lenses from an optical shop. Then, install the lenses to the eyeglass frames for usage.

For your additional information, DJI Goggles 2 supports diopter adjustment, ranging from -8.0 to 2.0 D. Therefore, myopia glasses are not needed during usage.

Please let me know if I misunderstood the case, thank you.

There is a problem with the suggestion to offer the 65w charger at checkout...I don't believe the 65W Portable Charger works with the Motion Controller, but it should work with goggles and batteries.  It results in NO LEDs when plugged in to charge...I tried to return my Motion Controller to DJI because I thought it had a manufacturing defect and wouldn't charge.

It has to be a much lower charge to work with the Motion Controller...like 5w...and it requires a USB male to USB-C male adapter, that does not come in the package.  Fortunately, after trying four different USB-C chargers (Apple iPad charging blocks, Oculus Quest 2 charging block, and Amazon charging block), I tried an old-school Apple square iPhone block with old-style USB connection, and it worked.

It says "fast charging is not supported for the motion controller".  I had the same issue; I've a raft of Apple chargers and of course you want to use the biggest one. Which is great for the Fly More battery charger rack.  But yes, as you said, find the smallest, oldest USB brick out there (or maybe just cheapest) and as it only needs 2 watts, it'll charge fine with that.  Just be prepared to let it charge overnight. Fortunately, it doesn't use much power, either, so should go for quite a while.

Hi there, currently, we only got the official manual for DJI Avata https://dl.djicdn.com/downloads/ ... _User_Manual-EN.pdf

Regarding your inquiry about EXP, DJI Avata does not support customizing the value. Thank you for your attention.

How do I calibrate the IMU compass on my goggles it says to place on flat surface which I can't do with it on my head.

Hi there, may I know if it is referring to calibrating Avata's IMU Compass?

Hi

It does

EXP means all the PIDs configuration (Roll, Yaw and Pitch) but there's no info at DJI docs

Thx anyway

Just wondering that if anyone is registering their avata drone before flight due to its weight that exceed the 250g ?
And which places that is actually needing the registration before flying a DJI Avata?

One additional questions please:

For your optometrist to make / fit custom lenses eg. Astigmatism

Does the battery need to stay in to get files off the internal storage through the USB-C to a computer?

@DJI Gamora Here you mentioned you can download the files stored on the goggles via a USB connected to a computer but I cannot seem to get that to work. Do you have any advice for doing that?

"The files are stored in two locations: cache files in the goggles' memory card, and persistent files in the drone's internal storage and memory card.
Cache files: are recorded transmission view. Due to low clarity and low smoothness, the recorded videos use a little memory space and are easy to be previewed, or you can export them through connecting the goggles to the computer."

Thank you for the detailed procedures.
I activated my newly purchased Avata, goggles 2 and motion controller yesterday.  However, when setting up the goggles 2, although I could see clear images when fixing either the left or right diopters, the two images did not combine and I kept seeing two separate images no matter how I moved the diopters.  Please advise how to fix this issue.

I live near Oakland Airport. 4 miles as a crow flies. Why can't I fly my new Avata inside my house. It really angers me that I spent tax and all around $1600 on this drone and can't fly in my own house. I also have a Mavic Air 2 and I fly it around the neighborhood  with no problems. All I need to do is check a couple boxes and I'm up with the birds.

For me the Avata is more fun flying low and fast. Someone has their head in the wrong place.
