DJI Introduces The O3 Air Unit To Empower FPV To Truly Go The Distance

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

 

November 22, 2022 – 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. [[1]] To help ease users during flight, video transmission covers up to 10 km while providing latency as low as 30 ms. [[2]] 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. [[4]] 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. [[5]]

 

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. [[6]]

 

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

  • Ultra-low latency video transmission at speeds shorter than 28 ms. [[7]]
  • Transmission fluency via flagship algorithm that enhances live footage smoothness and minimal latency.
  • 48-megapixel sensor for superior, high-definition images.
  • f/2.8 aperture for excellent depth of field.
  • 2.7K/120fps slow motion video for dramatic edits. [[8]]
  • Lightweight and compact like its predecessor, the DJI Digital FPV System, for easy installation.
  • RockSteady support to create even smoother footage.
  • Open IMU data enables convenient post-editing and stabilization.
  • Card Reader mode via USB connection for quick file reading.
  • 20GB of built-in storage in the transmission module.

Installation Guide

For easy installation and support of common issues, we have provided the DJI O3 Air Unit Installation Guide online for your reference.

 

[1] Measured while using DJI Goggles 2 and tested in an outdoor open environment free of interference, FCC-compliant.

[2] Tested in an outdoor open environment free of interference. Video transmission latency data varies with different goggles. With DJI Goggles 2 at 1080p/100fps video transmission quality, the lowest video transmission latency is 30 ms. With DJI FPV Goggles V2 at 810p/120fps video transmission quality, video transmission latency is less than 28 ms.

[3] The 2.4 GHz and 5.8 GHz frequency bands are supported for receiving; however only the 5.8 GHz frequency band is supported for transmitting. Some countries or regions do not support 5.8 GHz. Please check, confirm, and strictly abide by local laws and regulations before use.

[4] The 155° FOV is only available when the aspect ratio is 4:3 and the video recording specification is 2.7K@50/60fps or 1080p@50fps/60fps; or when the aspect ratio is 16:9 and the video recording specification is 4K@50/60fps, 2.7K@50/60fps, or 1080p@50/60fps. 4K/60fps videos do not support the aspect ratio of 4:3 and only support that of 16:9.
