Quanum DIY FPV Goggles
Recently HobbyKing released another interesting product. It is a FPV goggles kit for about $30.
What is special about this product? This kit includes non-blue screen monitor, EPP foam housing, Fresnel lens and strips from which you can build your own FPV goggles. This is for sure not a full-featured goggles like Fatshark for hundreds of dollars but cheap alternative for people who would like to experience an FPV without huge investments in this hobby. You should not expect the quality or experience you get with high-end goggles but this great value for the money if you are starting with FPV and considering goggles or ground station set up.
It looks like HobbyKing engineers were inspired by people around the world which are building custom FPV goggles from their ski googles and offered this great kit to experiment with.
Some technical specs:
- Screen size and aspect ratio: 4.3 inches/16:9 or 4:3
- Supply voltage: 7 - 13V
- Resolution: 480px (w)
- Size: 140x95x120mm
You will not get anything else except of goggles. For basic FPV set up you still need additional equipment like video transmitter and receiver as well as FPV camera for your model.
There are already videos reviews available for this product. RCModelReviews gives positive feedback.
Check the HobbyKing’s build video if you ordered this kit. It will help you understand how to put things together. Among other recommendations, they suggest cutting the foam housing to match the shape of your head for best flying experience.
What are other alternatives? HobbyKing offers a range of FPV monitors starting from about $80: 7 inches Fieldview TFT monitor
Or cheapest Fatshark Teleporter V3 FPV googles with camera and built-in receiver for about $200
