Get aboard your drone - DJI unveils its own FPV goggles

DJI Controller

Originally rumoured to be available in parallel to the launch of the DJI Mavic Pro back in 2016, the DJI FPV Goggles have finally been launched at a VIP event held in Las Vegas.

DJI Goggles combines a pair of large ultra-high-quality screens, long-range and low-latency wireless connectivity, and direct control of photo and video capture.

The DJI Spark drone will be more affordable as compared to the Mavic Pro which already does a good job of bringing down the price point for DJI's customers. "We fully expect that they will be thrilled with the fun and immersive experience of flying with our Goggles.". Though DJI Goggles don't really have much of an inspired name, they'll give you a birds-eye view of the action as your drone flies through the sky. Well, for starters, it lets you control your drone's yaw or camera tilt simply by moving your head with the Goggles on. Another option is to have a friend play cameraman, using the DJI Goggles to control the gimbal exclusively, while the aircraft operator maintains control of the aircraft with the master controller.

Paul Pan, senior product manager at DJI, says that this next step is exactly what DJI users deserve. The flight platform for the combination is the DJI M600 Pro drone, an advanced and adaptable six-rotor flight platform equipped with the powerful Lightbridge 2 transmission system, a dustproof propulsion system and six Intelligent Flight Batteries. The headset includes an HDMI port, allowing them to double as a headset for watching movies or playing video games, as well as a microSD slot that allows users to review any footage they may have captured. Also, for my fellow four-eyes out there: Glasses can be worn underneath the DJI Goggles. It's also believed that DJI is going to ship the Spark without a controller so owners would have to use a smartphone to control the drone.

The DJI Goggles should last six hours on a charge, feature touch controls on the side for menu exploring and even work for those wearing glasses. It is set to start shipping in late May.
