The DJI goggles is finally out in the market. The pair of first-person goggle made its debut last year September which was accompanied with the Mavic Pro aerial unmanned aircraft. The DJI Goggles offers you a first-person, VR-like experience in the real world. Similar to any other FPV goggles out there, you can see what your drone is recording while on flight through the two screens, despite having no specific name.
Since it was introduced alongside DJI Mavic Pro, it initially didn’t sound like the goggles would be available separately. Now that it’s sold separately, we’ll be getting a better idea of the list of technical specifications from this headset.
The headset is almost similar compared to other virtual reality headsets. It uses a beam splitter to present each eye with 1920×1080 resolution. If you use them with DJI’s Mavic Pro, you’ll be give two choices: high framerate, which outputs at 720p and 60 frames per second, or in high quality, outputs at 1080p, 30 fps.
It’s considered a really good offer, and you can even get to use DJI’s OcuSense to pair two DJI Goggles to a single Mavic Pro. You can use a number of different controls as a touch pad is lined up on the side of the goggles. You will find several features like Terrain Follow, ActiveControl, and Cinematic Mode. You can also control the movement and direction of the drone with DJI Goggle’s Head Tracking feature. But you can always give the physical controller to someone else to control the drone while setting the Head Tracking to only control your drone’s gimbal.
Though the DJI Goggle is clearly designed especially for Mavic Pro, you are able to use the headset for other drones as well, which includes the Phantom 4 series and the Inspire 2. The headset is available for pre-order today for $449, but you will have to wait for it to start shipping until May 20 this year.
