Functionality is the key to the DJI Goggles. FPV goggles, or VR headsets if you will, are fairly common in the drone market. Players like Fat Shark have been key in the racing circuit, and manufacturers like Parrot and Yuneec have their own branded headsets to accompany their drones. These offerings have been, with few exceptions, a one-to-one connection, drone to headset, but DJI has more to offer.
One of the things that makes DJI Goggles so special is the fact that it has a touchpad on a side. Yes, it is a real touchpad, just like the one on your laptop. Most of the communications between user and goggles are achieved through it. It also supports multiple fingers recognition and you can enter different menus by swiping in different directions with one, two or three fingers.
The outer appearance is spectacular and so is the build quality. They come in 2 parts, the headband and the goggles. The headband is made out of soft but sturdy materials and feels rather comfortable when being used. That’s because of padded insides and a knob for adjusting the fit. In our DJI Goggles review video, we have also mentioned that you can even control the drone and camera by just tilting and turning your head. Which allows the pilot (or whoever else is wearing the goggles to look around while flying the drone. Of course, this feature will perform the best on Inspire 2 as it has a 360° camera.
A Full HD resolution image is put in front of each eye with a combined experience as a 1080p display. The image is, as I say, massive. DJI says it is like looking at a 216-inch panel at just 3 meters away from you. I can certainly confirm that you must actively move your eyes to see corner to corner, it’s not a stretch, but it’s certainly immersive.
First off, you’ll need to charge and connect the two parts. They connect rather easily with no tools required whatsoever. On the left side, you will find a heat vent, a small speaker and a secured area with slots for HDMI, 3.5mm jack, and a micro SD card. The right side, however, is a lot more interesting. Other than the power button and the speaker, you will also find a touchpad area in the middle. Yes, a fully-fledged touchpad! You will use it to navigate the menus alongside 2 buttons below the edge which are used for exiting menus.
We truly believe this immersive experience is one that a person who owns a Mavic Pro would love. You’ll experience the Mavic in a way you never have before. We also think that by showing friends who have never experienced the RC hobby these goggles that there’s a good chance they will be interested in joining in on the fun!
