DJI has announced new FPV headset called DJI Goggles, which has head tracking and feature, enabling you to control DJI drones just by moving your head. The DJI Goggles price is about $449 and is available for purchase on its official website and ships in May.
The DJI Goggles are comfortable FPV headset designed for DJI products. It supports Mavic Pro, Phantom 4 series and Inspire series, but the company also stressed that some functions will be adapted for different DJI products. It offers 720p at 30fps and 1080p at 30fps viewing with the low latency of 110ms.
DJI Goggles Features:
- Supports both 720p/60fps and close range 1080p/30fps viewing with an extremely low latency of just 110ms.
- Antennas built into the headband ensure 360° of coverage, offering a reliable connection even if the aircraft is flying behind you.
- Your head movements control both aircraft yaw and camera tilt in Head Tracking Flight mode as with remote controller sticks. Turn left or right to yaw left or right, and straighten your head to stop turning. In Head Tracking Gimbal mode only the gimbal will move without affecting yaw.
Two 1920×1080 screens provides more than twice the amount of pixels of a typical 2K single screen
- Each screen packs its pixels together tightly so you see a clean, cohesive image with no latticing.
Beam splitter displays an image in front of each eye, as well as polarization to prevent any image overlap. This allows it to create genuine Full HD (1920×1080 pixel) resolution per eye. When used with the large aperture aspheric lens, an 85° field of view per eye is created for maximum immersion
- The screen portion of DJI Goggles can be flipped up to glimpse the real world, or detached entirely for easy storage and portability.
- Access to key intelligent features through a touchpad integrated into the DJI Goggles or 5D button on the Mavic Pro controller
- A unique solid headband design balances and spreads the weight of DJI Goggles around the head evenly, minimizing pressure on the face and keeping them comfortable to wear for hours. People who wear glasses are also able to wear them comfortably.
- With HDMI Input you can watch camera feeds from a Phantom 4 series or Inspire drones, or plug in a video device to watch films or play games.
- MicroSD slot lets you download files from the aircraft to the goggle’s onboard SD card for a backup, or view video files you have captured.
- Plug headphones into the headphone jack or use the onboard speakers to listen to audio on videos being played through the HDMI cable.
- Connect compatible Phantom 4 series and Inspire 2 using the USB port to get access to tracking functions and head tracking. It is also used for firmware upgrades.
