Top 5 Best FPV goggles – 2017

FatShark Dominator V3

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.

FatShark HD3

The HD3 is one of the most powerful, versatile and portable FPV goggle solutions on the market today… but it is also the most expensive!!! It is often the top choice of many professional drone pilots but maybe not the best. It’s new features include twin displays which offer an SVGA 800×600 resolution in a 16:9 format, matching the aspect ratio of HD systems. The field of view on the HD3 has been adjusted to 42 degrees to maintain a large-screen experience whilst delivering a sharp picture for OSD readability. However, it still does not come with diversity out of the box which for many is more important than an optional head tracking module. All in All we just feel that rather than innovating Fatshark is just tweaking its existing line up and continually increasing the price.

Skyzone Goggles Upgraded V2 Version

50228These 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.
