Choosing Between FPV Goggles & VR Headsets

VR VS FPV -Which Drone Headset Is Best For You?




” FPV or VR headset is what you need if you are looking to experience some immersive views with your drone, but which one is better? Well, depending on your intentions, a simple VR headset is usually sufficient enough for most cases, especially if you are only flying a DJI product. There are still some pros and cons to both. For the price difference and capabilities between the two, a VR headset is going to be the best bang for your buck unless you need FPV for real time quadcopter racing.”




” One major pro a FPV headset has over any VR headset is its low latency; there is little to no lag when coupled with an HDMI cable. The screen is usually cleaner, and the image quality is overall superior. You can also change settings easily because FPV goggles are separate from your phone or R/C. If you have a Yuneec or an Autel X-Star, then you can use a tablet with an HDMI output like an Nvidia Shield K1 and connect it to any FPV goggle with an HDMI input.”

” “Plug and play” is basically the motto that represent a VR Headset. All you have to do is purchase a 3rd party app like Litchi if you have a DJI product, get a fairly low costing VR headset and use your phone as the screen. You can easily pick up one up for about $20 USD, and Litchi, or other similar 3rd party apps, will only cost you around $25 USD depending on what device you get it on. The price is a major pro! Another great factor is its ability to head track. VR capable apps take advantage of a phone’s built in accelerometer and allow users to make the drone camera look up and down in accord to the pilots view, and some apps even take it further by giving you full 360 ° control.”
