Drone racers use FPV (First Person View) goggles to help them visualize and control their drones in a race. These FPV goggles enable the pilot to wear a screen that shows the view from a camera mounted on the drone, giving them a real-time video feed. With this view, drone racers can steer and control their drones more precisely in competitive races.
Most FPV goggles come with an HD display, with resolutions up to 1080p for a clearer viewing experience. Other features like adjustable IPD, optional head tracking, and DVR recording can also be found in these racing goggles. High-end drones will typically come with a greater range of features, allowing the racer to customize their experience.
Some popular goggles used by drone racers are the DJI Goggles, the FatShark HDO2, and the Fatshark Dominator 5. The DJI Goggles provide an immersive flight experience with an intuitive, easy-to-use interface. The FatShark HDO2 offers fantastic video latency and clarity and a wide field of view. Lastly, the Fatshark Dominator 5 features a 1280x960 resolution display, adjustable IPD, and 3-axis head tracker, making it ideal for more experienced, competitive FPV racing.
