FPV Google


Which FPV goggles are recommended for drone racing?

When playing with a drone, I think FPV goggles will be a problem.

The purpose of using FPV goggles is to use it for racing at Tinywhoop, use in races such as 5 inches, freestyle, free flight, etc., the use of goggles is different for each person.

The challenge is that the price ranges from expensive to cheap and there are many options. Therefore, I would like to introduce the recommended FPV goggles in the ranking format, such as the past experience and the reputation of others.

And if you don't mind purchasing costs, we recommend using FatShark Dominator HDO2, the latest FPV goggle sold by FatShark in 2019.

These notes are for flying drones in Japan.

In rare cases we have been asked about FPV goggles licenses, but FPV goggles do not require a license. However, to install VTX on a drone that transmits video radio waves, an amateur radio license is required.

Points to know when purchasing FPV goggles for drones

I will explain the point that it is better to hold down this much when purchasing FPVGoggles.

FPV goggles have monocular and binocular types

Monocular FPV goggles

Monocular FPV goggles

Binocular Type FPV Goggles

Binocular Type FPV goggles

Monocular monitor type FPV goggles

The monocular monitor type is a goggles that sees one monitor with both eyes.

The advantage is suitable for the entry model because there are many products with low price.In addition, it may be possible to use wearing glasses because there are many wide goggles.

Disadvantages are that they are not suitable for carrying because of their large and heavy size.In addition, because the width of the monitor is wide, it is necessary to recognize the image by moving the eyes.

Binocular monitor type FPV goggles

The binocular monitor type has two monitors, and it becomes a goggles that you see with each eye.Because there are a lot of high-performance and expensive things, it can be said that it is a product for intermediate to advanced.

The advantage is that it is possible to check the entire image without moving the eyes relatively, making it easy to capture the image.In addition, compared to the monocular monitor type, there are many compact size and lightweight products, and it is convenient for carrying around.

The disadvantage is that the investment cost is high because it is expensive.

Does the FPV goggles have a recording function (DVR)?

The purpose of using FPV goggles is to operate while watching the video flew from the drone, but you will want to improve your maneuvering skills by watching the recorded video, or you will want to enjoy it by publishing it on YouTube.

Some types of FPV goggles can store videos. Recently, even cheap goggles have a video recording function (DVR).

When you are flying a drone, you will always want to record the flight video and ask for the video, so it is recommended to select FPV goggles with recording function.

How wide is the IPD (inter-pupil distance) adjustment of FPV goggles?

This item is limited to two-eye monitor type, but let's check the adjustment width of the IPD.

IPD is different from person to person in the distance between the pupil and the pupil.If it does not fit within the adjustment range of this distance, the image will become blurred and become visible.

In addition, since the PID adjustment range has been widening for the most recently sold products, it is becoming difficult to happen that it did not fit at all.

It is the PID value of the FPV goggles introduced in this article for reference.

PID average value of America wiki refe64mm(min:53 max:77)
Fatshark Attitude v5 59-69mm
Fatshark Dominator HDO 59-69mm
Fatshark Dominator HDO2 54-74mm
Skyzone SKY03O 57.5- 69.5mm

Other things to check

If you have bad eyes, make sure you can wear a vision correction lens.

FPV goggles are difficult to see the video of the monitor if the eyes are bad.

As a countermeasure, in the case of "monocular monitor type", make sure that you can wear FPV goggles while wearing glasses. Also, make sure that you can wear a vision correction lens (diopter lens) if you use a “two-eye monitor type”.

Check aspect ratio ratio

It is necessary to check which aspect ratio of FPV goggles is.
If you are not sure which one to choose, select an aspect ratio of 4: 3. However, some people are enjoying drones at 16: 9, so I can not always say which is better.

Check the value of the FOV angle

I don't think we need to worry too much about FOV angles.In fact, I also use FPV goggles with different FOV angles, but I don't feel that much difference myself.

I think that it is possible to recognize the difference if it is a top racer who is active in drone racing etc. surely.
