DJI Goggles Racing Edition - Best FPV Goggles?

DJI Goggles Racing Edition

 DJI has announced a new VR headset for your drone. The new DJI Goggles Racing Edition are a decent improvement over the initial Goggles, plus they’ve got a bunch of new add-ons to round out the experience.

 At first glance, these look like the black colored Goggles some may have wished for, but under the hood they do a lot more.

 The Dji Goggles Racing Edition are compatible with the new OcuSync video transmission module and a high-performance camera module. This results in digital video transmission with a latency as low as 50ms as well as analogue. The Goggles can be used with a range of DJI drones or the camera can be mounted on a huge number of third-party vehicles and aircraft.

The Dji Goggles RE feature the same dual 1080p HD screens as the original Goggles and can still be used with a HDMI input for a unique viewing experience

The new OcuSync Video Transmission Module

 A new Ocusync enabled camera can be installed on your racing drone, then use the DJI antenna to make any customizable drone compatible with Dji Goggles RE. Of course, the camera and antenna will run you a little over two hundred dollars, but if you were about to shell out for a GoPro or other racing camera, that’s not a terrible deal.

DJI Goggles Racing Edition

You can enjoy 1280 x 960 FPV video over 2.4 or 5.8 GHz bands with range up to 7 km – that’s the same range as the Mavic Pro. The most important part, as far as we are concerned, DJI has reduced latency. The original Goggles worked as fast as 110 ms, the new Goggles RE come in at 50 ms latency. I promise that’ll make a huge difference in a high speed race.

The new OcuSync Camera Module

 In tandem with an OcuSync transmission module, the DJI Goggles Racing Edition can receive signal from up to 7km away with a latency of just 50ms. Wireless interference will also cause the module to switch seamlessly between the 2.4 and 5.8 GHz channels.

DJI OcuSync Camera for Racing Goggles

 The corresponding camera module comes with a 1/3” image sensor for high-resolution video, and its global shutter reduces the negative effects of high-frequency vibrations. A 148-degree field of view lens provides a stunning wide-angle image.

The on-screen display inside the goggles gives you all the flight information you could want, and head tracking allows for easy gimbal control. Bottom-up processing in the Dji Goggles RE negates the need for a separate signal reception module. An SMA port is also included for analog transmission.

DJI Goggles Racing Edition Compatibility 

 DJI says: “Precisely engineered for racing, DJI Goggles RE are compatible with an OcuSync video transmission module and a high-performance camera module, which work together to transmit digital video signal from up to 7 km away with latency as low as 50 ms,1 in addition to analog signal. Fly with smooth, clear video and experience the thrill of drone racing like never before.”
 DJI Goggles Racing Edition

DJI Goggles RE are compatible with Mavic Pro, Spark, Phantom 4 Series and Inspire 2. (Inspire 1 compatible with an adapter). Play videos in MP4, MOV, AVI and MKV. Even view 6K panoramas!

They can also be used with a wide range of third-party controllers including the following flight controllers: KISS, F3, F4, and Naze, and remote controllers X9D (FrSky), DEVO 10 (Walkera), T8FG (Futaba), T14SG (Futaba), WTF09sll (WFLY), and AT9S (RadioLink).

Pagoda Antenna

 In addition to the antennas inside the DJI Goggles RE for 360° signal receiving, the DJI OcuSync Air Unit comes with a set of three compatible interchangeable antennas for different scenarios:

  • Pagoda : A circularly polarised antenna which works best in 5.8 GHz. Transmission can be switched from digital to analogue.
  • Cylindrical : Also a circularly polarised antenna, however, operate in both 2.4 and 5.8 GHz. Ideal for long-range transmission.
  • Dipole : A linearly polarised antenna, with access to 2.4 5.8 GHz. Lightweight in design with an optimised performance over a short range.

Dji Goggles Re review Flight Control and Enhanced Compatibility

The DJI Goggles Racing Edition provide access to flight setting adjustments, gimbal control, and precise flight data, which is necessary for effective drone racing.  A separate signal reception module is not needed and by connecting a third-party controller to the Dji Goggles RE, racing drones with an F3, F4, KISS, Naze or any other supported flight controller can be flown directly.

 Essential flight information including transmission resolution, battery level, and signal quality, is easily visible on screen. If the device is in Head Tracking Gimbal mode, the camera can be controlled with a simple turning of the head.

 Furthermore, for those who don't have the DJI OcuSync Air System which is made up of the DJI OcuSync Air Unit, DJI OcuSync Camera and three pairs of DJI OcuSync Antennas; the DJI Goggles RE have an SMA port for analog transmission.
