  1. Rated 5 out of 5

    I am not even sure what some of the one star reviewers are talking about!
    These Goggles IMHO are 5 Star rated devices. When they were announced people predicted the price range would be $600 to $800 and then they came out at $450 and yet some people still complain.

    Enough on that, lets get to the Review.

    For starters, yes they are sort of large, but not much larger than the PlayStation 4 VR goggles. The key thing is that they are well balanced and feel really good on your head. The front protrudes a lot but it’s actually fairly light. The headband is heavier because it contains the batteries and the combo makes for a perfect balance on your head.

    The Goggles use two x five inch 1920×1080 screens inside. That gives an effective resolution of 3840×1080 or its like looking at a 216″ HDTV screen at 10ft away. Yes your own mini theater that almost covers everywhere your eyes look at. This gives you a completely immersive experience. You feel like you are flying, so much so that you will find yourself moving with the aircraft and swaying like a bird and then on landing and removing the goggles you will feel a bit disorientated that your back on the ground. It’s all very hard to put into words because frankly there is nothing for drones on the consumers market that I can use as a comparison.

    I wont bore you with Specs because if you have reached this point you have no doubt read up on all the details of the touch pad on the side and the head tracking etc. So let me focus instead on the information that is not on DJI’s website.

    If your using the with a Mavic Pro you almost do not need to have a tablet or phone hooked up, although I highly recommend that you do keep one hooked up.. The goggles provide all the really necessary flight information but do lack a few things like the map. They have implemented the Radar system for knowing where the craft is in relationship to you but it is not complete but it is supposed to be by the next update probably around the end of June.

    The built in head tracking system works perfectly, almost too perfectly because it moves just as quickly as your head moves which is great for just looking around while flying but is terrible for trying to record video unless you want it jumping around all over the place. For now I leave it on when I want to just fly for fun or to let a friend feel what it’s like to be Superman, but for videography I leave it locked and use the controls on the remote to move the camera. The 110ms latency is really great. It gives you a feeling like there is almost no latency. If you have flown the drones with a Tablet or phone you were getting over 200ms of latency, so this is a big improvement.

    The unit has a built in silent fan and I dont know if this is designed to help prevent any kind of fogging in the goggles but whatever the case is, the goggles do not fog up when your using them. There is a bit of heat build up if you go out with them on a hot day and there is also a small amount of light leakage around the nose section. This pretty much goes away once the screen is lit up. If you were glasses its not a problem as the goggles fit right over even the biggest of glasses. There is no built in Diopter with these goggles, so if you wear glasses you will need them.

    I have used FAT Shark FPV goggles and looked through several other brands that cost a lot more than the DJI brand and I can tell you that none of them come close to the DJI goggles. The picture quality on this thing is amazing. All the other ones I have tried had a major issue, in that I could see the pixels and this made it look fake. With the DJI it’s like going from an old tube TV to a full HD flat panel display.

    When your not flying this thing is a blast for watching TV! You can hook up an HDMI cable and watch anything coming from your 1080P cable box or computer. It even worked great using my iphone and an HDMI adapter. You get that massive beautiful TV screen and the picture is super clear.
    One let down is that you would think that 3D would look great on this since it has separate screens for each eye but for right now DJI does not support 3D decoding. All the hardware is there, so I hope its just waiting on software updates.

    The goggles have output for headphones but they also have two built in speakers which are great for listening to movies. They are not tinny or cheap sounding, I was actually surprised at how good they sound.

    One of the main features is that you can transfer your recorded video from the aircraft to the goggles and play them back. You can either do this wirelessly or you can pop out the SD card in the drone and push it into the SD card slot on the goggles. This works very well for letting friends watch video recorded by the drone. I wanted to see if I could get movies of my own onto the SD card and see if I could play that. So far I can get video but no sound. I don’t know if its a feature that is not implemented yet or if they do not have plans on doing it because video from the drone does not have sound so maybe they think it is not a needed option.

    There are so many positives to these goggles that it’s hard to know where to start. I can only say that if you really want to feel like your in the cockpit of your Drone, especially a Mavic Pro, you need a pair of these goggles. The only downsides that I have found is that like all goggles you are pretty much blind to your surroundings when using them. It is very important that you have somebody next to you to make sure that your environment is safe and also to keep a visual line of sight on the drone. Do you have the ability to reach out to people to come and fly with you when you want to? That is probably the make or break issue with all FPV goggles
