Quanum DIY FPV Goggles

Recently HobbyKing released another interesting product. It is a FPV goggles kit for about $30.

Quanum FPV Goggles

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:

  • Supply voltage: 7 - 13V
  • Resolution: 480px (w)
  • Size: 140x95x120mm
