Guide to buying FPV goggles
With quadcopters and drones of various kinds becoming extremely popular, more and more people are becoming interested in buying FPV goggles. These goggles offered an immersive flying experience - something you just cannot achieve with a FPV monitor. So if you're really serious about drones, you need to buy yourself a pair of FPV goggles.
With a range of products on the market, you need to know exactly what you should look for in a pair of goggles before you buy them.
Obviously, you would want to buy a pair of goggles with the highest possible resolution. You'd also want to note that the video quality you see on the goggles cannot be better than the video quality your camera on board the quadcopter is capable of. In other words, your camera limits the resolution of your FPV goggles.
So you obviously would want to make sure your FPV camera is very good.
Field of view
You want this to be as big as possible. The bigger the field of view is, the bigger the image will be.
Built in digital video recording
Some models allow you to record live video on a micro SD card. This can be a very handy feature to have - especially if you're flying outdoors and crash. You'll be able to playback the video and get to know where your drone crashed.
Possibly the best way you could use your goggles would be with an FPV monitor that comes equipped with dual antennas. These monitors usually have a port into which will be able to plug-in the FPV goggles.
This is very important because without at least a dual antenna setup you might lose the video signal and the drone may crash. Some goggles do come with a built-in 5.8 GHz receiver, but you most certainly would not want to rely on a single receiver.
