The newly released FPV goggles by DJI have been engineered to furnish a wonderful immersive experience to pilots as they are able to see from the cockpit view of their drone.
The goggles are compatible with DJI Mavic Pro, DJI Inspire series and DJI Phantom 4 series and can also be used to control these devices. This technology generates a virtual reality like FPV experience that enables the pilot to view the feed being transmitted from camera located on the drone live. The head tracking control feature lets the user control the drone’s movement with the movement of his/her head.
The goggles provide a tremendous resolution of 3840 x 1080 pixels and a wide 85 degrees view per screen to enhance the user’s experience. The latest ocusync technology ensures that there is virtually no latency (at least 110 ms) and has the ability of transmitting 720p/60 fps video for long range and 1080p/30 fps for short-range video feed. The videos can be streamed simultaneously to four display screens so you can share you immersive experience with your friends and family.
The HDMI port also lets you stream any video stream from your television or video gaming console to goggles while the audio input can be used to stream audio to other headphones. The battery that is used to operate this gizmo is rated at 9440 mAh and provides a lifetime of about 6 hours. A SD card slot has also been provided to download videos and images and a touchpad to manoeuvre the drone as and when required.
The negative feedback that this versatile piece of equipment has received from the users is that it is bulky which makes it continuous use a bit difficult. According to the information available at the DJI website, the headset weighs around 495g while the goggles weigh around 500 grams.
The device can be order at the DJI website for $449. You can click here to get more information about specifications of this device.
