Lets start if it with they look VERY similar to the old ones in size and shape. Si if you hated the original DJI Goggles for that reason, I’m sure you will dislike these too 🙂
Now on to what they are. As the name implies, these are designed for use in FPV racing scenarios ( also work like the old ones did for ) – “DJI Don’t make a racing drone” I hear you say.. Well true, but these goggles now come with a module and camera designed to attach to a traditional racing drone and transmit to the Goggles with a range of 7km and latency of 50ms.
It’s not all about the compatibility with racing drones, the system can be attached to many other drones and even vehicles,robots and people.
Compatible with the Mavic Pro, Spark, Phantom 4 series, and Inspire 2, DJI Goggles RE inherit all the great features of DJI Goggles, including full flight setting control, two high-resolution screens, Head Tracking, and more. In addition, an optimised facial pad and head band offer added comfort and better light blockage.
