If you’re looking to get into the world of racing drones, or a better, more immersive experience with your camera drones, you’re going to want to try out a set of FPV goggles. It’s important to note that while there are a ton of FPV goggles available, many of them are extremely low quality.
Here are some of the best fpv goggles you might want to consider:
Fatshark Dominator V3
If you want to get serious about drone racing, then the Fat Shark Dominator V3 has what you need. It will give you that truly immersive flying experience you’ve been dreaming of, plus it has an 1,800 mAh battery with an LED indicator, so you never run out of juice.
The Dominator V3 is all about having a modular design and upgrading down the road, adding expandable functionality when you’re ready to. It uses a 1800mAh battery and can be charged off standard RC chargers. Price: $395
Arris Skyzone SKY-01S FPV
Arris is certainly no stranger to the world of drone racing, as they have many great racing drones on the market. The company also has one of the best FPV goggles on the market in their Skyzone SKY-01S. They support a high resolution of 854×480 (WVGA) and they come with a 40-channel receiver. It has a brightness and contrast switch that allows users to change their brightness and contrast on the fly with the press of a button (short pressing adjusts them gradually; long press adjusts them continuously).
These goggles also come with removable optic lenses, meaning you can slide the lenses out and replace them with lenses to help correct for near sighted vision. So if you normally wear glasses to see far away (like myself). FatShark goggles have this feature as well, and any lens set sold for FatShark will fit into the Skyzone goggles as well. Price: $439.00
Boscam GS922 FPV
The Boscam GS922 FPV Storm Goggles also have a high resolution of 854×480(WVGA) and it has two antennas. They have a 30 degree field of view, and they have an impressive range on them. It supports both 2.4G and 5.8G bands and 32 channels. It’s slightly cheaper than the Fat Shark Dominator, and they’re very similar, with the biggest difference being their actual physical design (GS922s are very plain-looking). I have not personally tested this pair, but I’ve read and heard good things about them like they’re easy to setup and they’re comfortable to wear. Price: $348.88
In case you haven’t heard, drone racing has grown exponentially over the past year. Even ESPN now has a drone racing show. Now, more people are tuning into professional drone races, amazed at the fastest racing drones on earth and how their pilots control them with complete nonchalance.
