In this article, you can read all about possible parts, accessories and upgrades for the DJI FPV. From the simplest parts to the most interesting gadgets. We‘re not going further into detail about the DJI Motion Controller as we already discussed this accessory in the main article of the DJI FPV (link article). The most obvious gadget is the extra cover that DJI offers you so you can personalize your drone, so let’s start here.
The simplest gadget you can buy together with your DJI FPV is the extra cover, the so-called DJI FPV Top Shell. The drone comes standard with a simple grey transparent Top Shell, in the combo set you get an extra light green Top Shell, this looks good of course but you don’t have to be a genius to see the endless possibilities here, as this Top Shell is easy to replace, you can also personalize it yourself, anyone that is handy with a spray gun can design his/her own personal image to paint on the extra Top Shell to make your drone stand out of the crowd, it basically gives you a blank canvas to play with. A set of 2 Top Shells, 1 Eternal Green and 1 Void Grey only costs 15 EURO.
For the daredevil pilots, there is nothing more important than protection, broken motors and prop scan become expensive and time-consuming to replace, so in order to reduce the chance of damage, you can buy a set of Propeller Guards from DJI.com for only 25 EURO. This will protect your drone when flying in challenging terrains like rock formations, forests or cramped areas.

DJI sells the DJI FPV Drone Arm Bracers, these are interesting things, they are easy to assemble arm bracers that enhance the strength of the FPV arms and reduce the risk of damage to the arms, do remember this drone can fly at 148 km/h, this puts huge stress on the arms of the drone and may in damage the arms when flying long and multiple flights to the limits of the drones capabilities, so in order to counter this, the Arm Bracers may be a good idea at only 19 EURO.

An interesting problem that drone pilots often face is the lack of a clear landing area, I myself have used flat rocks, the roof of my car or even a cycling road as a safe flat clear place to take off and land, however sometimes it is difficult to find a good spot. The solution is to carry your own landing platform with you! There is a simple easy to use foldable platform available on Amazon (2nd link below) that you can carry in any backpack and open when needed on the spot, lay it over snow, grass, gravel or any uneven or dirty surface to give your drone a nice clean place to take off and land, and afterwards you just was hit with water, it even has 4 corner holes so you could use pins to anchor it down. It costs 15.99 USD.
Another landing pad is available for 19.99 USD on Amazon and this one is very different from the previous one (1st link above). This is a plastic landing pad, it can be used for all kinds of model helicopters and drones, easy to assemble, you can personalise it with pre-printed stickers. The advantage of this landing pad is that it houses a 9V battery in the base that powers the built-in LED lights, perfect for evening and nighttime flights. The design of this pad is so that it interlocks, so if you buy 4 of them you can create your own giant landing pad and use more LED lights for your drone to safely return home.
