FPV: Equipment For FPV


FPV Video Goggles

FPV Video Goggles really are the key to your overall FPV experience. The Goggles will be your eyes in the sky and will make a big difference on how the FPV experience is perceived. There is a varied range of these products on the market but it is probably a good idea for you to invest a bit of money into a decent pair so that you get the most out of your FPV experience. The standard set up of the goggles consists of two screens – that’s one for each eye. The picture appears on the screens with adjustable resolutions ( depending on model type ) so you can change the contrast and saturation to get the desired picture effect required.


FatShark DominatorHD Video Goggles:

FatShark DominatorHD Video Goggles

The DominatorHD video goggles are a fantastic all rounder. You are able to use these goggles with a dedicated video transmitter and receiver, as well as via an HDMI cable. This feature enables you to connect to a games console, bluray/DVD player or your phone/tablet. With a 45 degree field of view and 800×600 glass optic LCD display, you really cannot go wrong.

Along side the HDMI input feature is a built in DVR recorder. This will record your flights and OSD (telemetry) information directly to a micro SD card. One downside to the DominatorHD goggles is that 20% of people experience a blur around the edges. 80% of people will not experience this and find the goggles a brilliant product. Out of the 20% who do experience this, a set of -2 diopter lenses solve the problem.
