These are the best of the best when it comes to FPV goggles currenlty. All the pro pilots use these goggles including FGA, Skitzo, Steele, Juz70 etc. The DominatorHD has the highest resolution display of any commercial video glasses (SVGA 800X600), but also the largest field of view (50 degrees diagonal). The beauty of Fatshark Dominator series is the fact that it is fully modular, meaning you don’t have to have unnecessary features, and you can choose your frequency (including 1.3, 2.4, 5.8). It also has an inbuilt DVR allowing you to record your flights without having to carry a hefy GoPro. HDMI input was implemented to ensure forward compatibility with the inevitable digital HD links.
These are arguably the best all round goggles on the market at the moment, they are just over $320 making them only $10 more expensive than the Attitude V3s which are meant to be the next set down. Unlike the Dom HDV2s these goggles are 16:9 widescreen, which many hard core FPV flyers claim distorts the image too drastically, however we have a pair at Droneinsider and find them great to fly on, and we also feel that the hobby might eventually switch to widescreen. Like the the HDV2s, these Dominator V3s are fully modular allowing for head tracking and different recivers. It is also future proofing with HDMI connectivity with 720p support through a robust mini HDMI port and 16:9 format WVGA image; this also allows you to watch movies with them, if you want to be extra immersed.
Even though these are not the most pretty, easy to use or best quality FPV goggles they have one key thing going for them: they are incredible value for money. We bought some to review and loved them!! They are probably the best value goggles anyone can buy at the moment and basically the negate the Quanum V1s. Yes there are a few build quality issues and they obviously won’t look as good high end Fatsharks, however if you put their price in perspective you realise what a good set they are. All in all, I would go as far as to say that the Quanum V2s negate the lower end Fatshark models, because in my opinion these goggles give a better FPV experience than all the Fatshark goggles below the Attitude range and at a fraction of the price.
The headplay can bee seen as luxury quanums, its the same general idea: a high quality screen close to ones face using fessel lenses in order to enlarge the picture and make the experience more immersive rather than two small screen. This has many advantages: as it allows the use of better existing screen technology as well as a single set of electronics rather than two, making them much cheaper than fatsharks. They are generally higher quality and have many more features, for example: 7″ 1280x800px Immersive Display, 40 channel 5.8GHz Receiver, HDMI input, External A/V input and a Speaker. Many long range plane FPV pilots prefer the head play, due to the more open sense of FPV which one gets with the goggles.
These can be considered to be chinese fatsharks. They are very good and feature many advantages over fatshark such as the diversity 5.8 reciver and the camera on the front of the goggles which allows you do see what around you without having to take the goggles off. However, it is important to remember they are only slightly cheaper than Fatsharks and the they don’t enjoy the same reputation which Fatsharks enjoy in the FPV community, Fatshark also have very good customer service and if you are going to drop $300+ dollars on FPV goggles this is something you want. These do come with two 5.8Ghz recievers which the fatsharks don’t and they also come with inbuilt headtracking. However they do not have a DVR which may be a deal breaker for some.
