BEST FPV GOGGLES in 2020 ?
Welcome back to the channel today, look at the stack of goggles that I have here. These are some of the best of the best goggles for 2020, and I wanted to update my best goggles of the Year video, because the 2019 version is a bit outdated. Now, even though I just did that one, probably three or four months ago – and here we are already in the first quarter of 2020, ready for the best goggles for 2020, and and this is going to be that updated video. I think the information that you see in this video is going to surprise you. I didn't expect the the pair of goggles sitting here in front of me to kind of win me over versus some of the other ones out. There I've had a long standing tradition on my channel, preferring skyzone over the fat sharks. Even the HD OS that came out last year, the sky Zone, o 3 OS came out and everyone was really impressed because the screens are brighter and they look better. So this year, we're gon na do some comparison of all of these goggles here, including DJI digital as well. But should you buy digital straight out of the gates or should you go analog and then move up later, that's totally up to you, and that also has to do with cost we're? Also gon na talk about quality versus cost. Here, what you get for the money? We'Re gon na talk about the current price of each one, depending on what budget you have, of course, also might be a deciding factor in this video for you, of which pair of goggles that you decide to go for, and price is king out there let's just Be honest: price is king for most people, so starting out with the fat sharks, you are going to pay 4.
99 for the HDO twos, which I have sitting here. I did also test out various different modules on those as well, but they come without a module. So if you're brand new to fpv or you're, just getting into fpv and you're going to buy your first pair of goggles, be aware of that when I open up the box for the HD o twos, there was nothing in the box: no antennas, no batteries. No! No module so you're gon na have to buy all that extra and that's gon na at the cheapest. The Fox here wildfires around eighty nine dollars, that's this one down here: the fluorescent green one right there, but you're gon na get up and upwards of 600 to 650 to 700 dollars out the door. If you decide to go the HDO route, you can get the original HDS a little cheaper now, but they fix a lot of things and they added some things to the HDO too. So a good friend of mine, Diego just bought the HDL twos, so he's he's pretty happy with his. But there are some fat shark containers out there like skyzone let's, go ahead and start giving you a quick little rundown about each pair of goggles. Here and let's. Talk about the thing that's going to blow you away in this video. The most I think, you're gon na, be surprised. I was absolutely shocked this morning when I sat him down all on the table.
Cad X, retail was my camera of choice for comparing all these goggles turn them on, with the exception of the DJI. Of course, if you have the money by the DJI hands down, go for the DJI modules, those the new CAD X Vista and the full size air module two thumbs up for those. But if you're going to analog route, let's go ahead and jump right into the best goggles for 2020 in the early 2020. This is gon na be great. Here we go alright for this part of the video I'm gon na bring up the video editor and we had to place in each DVR recording from each camera. From my cat ex Ratelle and we're gon na shoot, with the GoPro Hero 7 at 720p. At 200 frames per second setting and you're gon na be able to see the difference in the lag here between each DVR recording. Now these are the cheapest fat sharks out there that are a good deal under hundred dollars to wreak on VIII's. Actually, look pretty good there's, not a lot of delay here now, we're gon na go to the e sheeny v 300 DS and check out the frame rate discrepancy. Here. You can see that there's pretty major lag going on here. This was tested also by painless. 360. I'M, a guy over there he over a hundred milliseconds, as I did myself. So there is quite a bit of delay there and that's going to equal out to about 1.
8 meters per if you're flying so that's a lot of that's six to seven feet there. Now, with the HDL twos right here, five to seven millisecond per average frame delay and thirty five millisecond on the average there, so these are way faster than Evie 300 DS. If you want to racing para goggles, these would be the ones to get. If you'd like to fly fast, the sky Zone, o 3o s, look like they're, actually doing even a little bit better than the fat shark HD OS, giving me around 25 to 30 millisecond average and recorded on that DVR it's 688 by 576 DVR recording resolutions. A little bit better than the fat sharks HD OS 640 by 480 and I've talked about that before on the channel. Now the HD OS. They seem to also do pretty good and they're gon na average out to about 35 to 40 millisecond delay and our testing, as well with the GoPro Hero 7 at 720p at the 200 per second frame rate. Now let's move over to a less expensive para goggle. So that would be the fat shark attitude V 5s and again here I'm, not seeing a whole lot of delay, so we're, probably in the neighborhood again around 35 millisecond delay, even on the cheapest pair of fat sharks out there that are binocular style, not the recontour. The scouts, I think the attitudes are probably doing a little bit better, but those are gon na show some pixel resolution at 640 about 480.
So not my first choice but let's put them all up on the screen here, so you guys can see them and we're. Just gon na zoom in a little bit closer all in at one time here now you're seeing the frame delay on each one. That'S live in the editor right there and you can see there is some delay on the fat shark HDO in comparison to this guys. Oh no threes check it out the bottom left hand corner, and you can see some big frame jumps mostly on the right hand, side of the screen, the HDL 2, is even showing a little bit of frame delay and the HD is the original HD is so You can be the judge for yourself, which one you think is doing the best as far as latency goes that's. A pretty good test now right away here is basically the top for analog goggles out there in our industry. Right now we have the HD o s. We have the HD o twos, the eachine, evey 300 DS and the sky Zone o 3 OS. They all now have OLED goggle lenses on each one, which is really nice, but they are different resolutions, starting out with the sky Zone, o 3os. Those are they're still pretty high, they have a 35 degree field of view on them. They are 1024 by 768 OLED screen so um there, so they they're actually brighter than the original HD OS.
There was a lot of videos comparing both of these goggles and surprisingly, the sky zone's beat out the HD O's. The original HD o is that everyone was buying HD, oh and rapid fire seemed to be the hot combo at the time, and that was about yeah. Maybe about six months ago now, but following up to the update of those the HD o twos and those are 499 dollars, but they have a rate screen resolution of 1280 by 960. So they upped the screen resolution and they made it a little bit better display. There 46 degree field of view on they're there for 3 and 16 by 9 switchable, but those are 4.99 without any type of module or antennas on there. So you're also going to have to buy a couple 18 650 batteries to go in the Fatshark battery case. Right there, so these come with a longer cord, which I like better, so I would definitely recommend just getting a 3s 2200 battery and stick it in your pocket. While you fly instead of having it on the side of your head, if you're flying longer hours, it just makes more sense to have one a larger battery, that you can take the weight off your head and stick in your pocket and just have a little bit Longer flight time as well, so you could even go bigger if you want to 3s, like 3000 milliamp last me about a week's worth of line before I have to charge, but the resolution on them are a little bit better.
But the big thing is that the price again is going to be the difference in both of these two, so these are kind of out of it right now, they're kind of out of the loop, so the HDS are going to move to the side, and these Are 400? These are 4.99, but these come with built in module base with diversity, so they they are a good value, so that price will get you out the door a little more money for some better antennas and I've talked about this Fox here, 8 DB, echo antenna. This is the patch antenna that I usually prefer to fly with, as well as just a simple lollipop. 3. This combination right here will get you out there 3 miles or more now, do the new HD, oh screens, look as good as the o3 hose. Yes, they do so they did do this update to compete with the o3 O's because all the videos came out, Josh Bodwell everybody else in DRC, Albert Kim, including myself. We all said that these are better than the HD oath. So, yes, they actually are. In my opinion, especially for the price you get all this stuff included and really nice foam faceplate as well, and you get a wider, strap that's. The other thing that that shark can't seem to get is they keep coming out with this thinner, strap and everyone right now wants the thicker, strap so that's another area where sky zone's kind of paying attention to the community as well.
So these are really still a really really good deal, but an even better deal is the Ishii neavy 300 DS. Those are 1280 by 960 they're, exactly the same resolution as the HD o2 is, but these are 499 with no module no antennas. These come with quad versity 2 replaceable modules right here. These are the stock, oisin modules that we're testing today, and they both have the same resolution, but also the same type of lens setup. Here they have adjustable IPD as well as the focal length, so HDO does their setup a little bit different. Then machine does now comparing both of these. I tested both of these out in the field and I do actually prefer the e seen screen adjustments over the Fatshark, and why would I do that? Why would I like this one over this one? Well, I'll tell you so when you're sitting there you're trying to get your screens right, they put both of the focal adjustment and the IPD here on the same type of slider and focus knob right here. So when I push this in that's nice and all in one type of switch slider and dial right there, that is really really genius now on the fat sharks. They put the IPD up here and the focus down here and the IPD is fine. I can get to this pretty well, but the problem was the focus wheel, it's. Actually it stuck back here and if you don't have like fingernails it's, really hard to get to the focus wheel and it's really really low.
It doesn't come out far enough, and so it makes it hard to get your fingernail in there and get these in focus now. The next thing in this comparison is the voltage range of these goggles we're gon na start out with the sky Zone sky zones. The o3 OS they actually have a voltage range from seven to twenty six volt. That is pretty good that's. A fairly high voltage range most of the time I'm using a 3s battery on my sky zone's, like I said before, like the 3s 2200 battery or a 3000 milliamp battery, will last me about a week's worth of flying. The HDO 2s have a voltage range of 7 to 13 volts, so you can only run 2 and 3's on this set of goggles. So surprisingly, skyzone has a higher voltage range than the HDO twos, and those just came out wish they would have up their voltage range a little bit in case you needed to use a 4s 1300 battery as a as a backup to the 18 650 s. If they died on you, so next in the lineup is the e sheeny V 300 DS and those have the highest voltage range just barely higher than the skies. Oh, no, three. O'S. Those come in from seven to 28 volts, so they win the highest voltage range. Now the next thing in comparison is the DVRs onboard DVR eaching, wins it again with their DVR. It looks better than even my sky zone's.
It also looks better than fat sharks DVR. I kind of wish that Ian would have moved the SD card slot to the bottom, like skyzone has there's on the bottom here, it's just much easier to access underneath then in between the eyes, and they they usually tuck it in behind this piece of plastic here, Which creates a gap? The HDO twos they're a little bit easier to get to them the II Sheen's. But as far as the look and less grainy appeal, the II Sheen's do win on the DVR contest there, as well, so a much better DVR on the ishii and evey 300 DS. The next thing that all of these goggles do have is a power button skies. Oh no three o's or one of the first pairs to incorporate a power button. Everybody wants that onoff button on there and you have to press this to turn them on. So when you plug the battery on, they don't immediately come on also the eachine EB. 300. G'S also have a power button and that power button is right here as well as Fatshark HD o2s now have a power button as well and it's a combination, button fan and power now we're starting out this part of the comparison with the HD o to seer You'Re, looking at the live screen view, you see the drone camps flag. There you see that the colors look pretty bright. They do pop it's, actually a little more saturated than what it looks like in real life, it's, not quite as bright as what you see there on the screen.
But one thing that I want you to notice is the amount of noise that these goggles produce. When looking at the blacks, the darks seem, it seems to have a live view with quite a bit of noise in there, even though the colors are bright, the screen is bright, it does have a noticeable amount of noise on the darks, and you will be quite Surprised that the EB 300 DS seem even a little bit brighter and when you're looking at a CAD X, rotelle camera generally. That camera is pretty bright. Pretty bit a lot of the guys in the Pacific Northwest like to use that camera, because even on the darkest days that camera still looks great, you can see the scragga. But this is the first thing that I did notice with the HDO twos. Was that even though they are brighter – and I think the screen is bigger in in my my my view point – you can definitely see bots top to bottom, with these they're, better adjusted than the HD of regular HD OS. But still there was a bit of noise here, and that was one of the biggest things that I noticed right off now. Let'S, look at the ev3 hundred DS in comparison and I'll put both of these up on the screen at the same time. So you can see both of them they're in the live view, I'll put the HD o2s on the left and we'll put the EB 300 DS on the right.
Alright guys now, you can see both of these para goggles up in the screen. At the same time, now one thing that you have to know that the way I recorded this was with my iPhone. This is the newest iPhone that, with three cameras on there, it was extremely difficult to be able to get the cameras to zoom in close enough on this lens on the EB 300 ease, because there is a slight bit of distortion around the edge of the flag. There it looks kind of washed out like it's blurred out but to the naked eye. This is all very crisp and one of the other things that you have to notice about both of these. As far as less noise and the EB 300 ease, the EB 300 ease win right. There also the colors seem to pop a little bit harder on the EB 300 D, so you're getting a little bit brighter color. The cataracs, rotelle, though, honestly, is, is one of those kind of oversaturated cameras. If that's, what you like, I tend to really like the codecs Ratelle, because of that it just makes the grass look greener and the videos look a little bit nicer when I record, but again, the Eevee 300 DS clearly win in this case again, as far as The amount of noise on the lens and that's, the first thing that I noticed about the HD o2 as they have it sort of softened a little more in the Eevee 300 DS.
If you will, it just looks a little bit better on the screen. The Fatshark HD twos look a little bit larger if you want kind of a larger look, but you can also change that as well. Both of these pairs of goggles, 4, 3 or 16 button on, depending on whether you're racing or you're doing freestyle. I tend to like sixteen by nine for freestyle racing, guys like four three, because they can see further ahead and then Ike's gate vertically, but clearly the Eevee 300 DS, in my opinion and by my 2020 vision, seem to have actually a better looking lens inside the Goggles the view is it's, better color and less noise in the video, so let's go ahead now and take a look at the last paragraphs in this equation. The sky, both Rios and here again, are the sky o3o s, and I have to say that they look very good. So, if you're looking for that mid range pair of goggles, I think that this, the sky o'the Rios with the included model ways with the exception of good antennas. I think that these are still a really strong deal in the first part of 2020. I would put my money down on a pair of skies. Oh no, three! It was any day of the week so now at this point in the review, you guys you have to have a clear idea of what each of these goggles are all about: the specs.
The screens on each one of them, the DVR and the latency, the three most important things also ease of use. I find that let's just go ahead and break it all down. At the end of this video, the best screen award goes to the Eevee 300 DS. The best latency award probably is going to go to the sky Zone. Oh three, following the Fatshark HDO two's, the HDO 2s had an average of around a thirty five millisecond delay. These are around 25 to 30 millisecond delay, and these were up to 100 millisecond delay. These probably won the best ease of use, zero light leaks and probably also the best DVR on board. But can you live with that hundred millisecond delay mmm if you're flying fast? If you are in a multi, GP, racer or somebody who goes 70 to 80 to 90 miles an hour through gates, they're gon na want the HD, oh twos, those are your hands down best pair of goggles out there with rapid fire on them. Just go ahead and spend the money and buy the HD, Oh twos. Now, if you're, an everyday pilot that just wants to go out and fly, if you want to have some nice DVR onboard get the sky zone, Oh 3os, those are my just sort of best. Overall goggles for the price, those are still around 400, but you don't have to buy the additional cost of having extra antennas and another module to buy.
So these are built in they're out the door priced at '9 and that's still good in 2020. So if you're just getting into fpv, you don't have to go out and spend 300 on a pair of goggles or even the 400 or 500 or 600 or 700. You can get started in fpv for a more budget friendly pair of goggles like the fat shark. Recon v3 is right here. These are a really good set of goggles, they look nice on and they have a DVR on board as well. So I think this should be something you should think about if you're just getting into fpv. For the first say a couple months now, the little larger investment would be the fat shark attitude the fives. These are also beginner friendly pair of goggles at a pretty good price range. So, and these did pretty well in the latency testing as well as well as these dip, so all the fat shark goggles did great in the latency testing, and while these are not my favorite because they have 640 by 480 resolution, it does kind of look a Little bit muddy on the screen in comparison to the higher end down here on the bench, but most people just getting into it can live with these. These are hard to see those ghost branches when you're coming really fast through the trees. So if you're our beginner, keep that in mind, you might be crashing a little more than you normally would, with a more expensive pair of goggles but I'm gon na leave that up to you guys again because it's your budget – and these are the specs – and these Are the results of our testing one last thing I want to talk about as far as your battery setup goes, there are two types of battery setups that a lot of people use.
These are the 18 650 battery packs from Fatshark. You can put two 18 650s in there and this battery pack will actually fit in all three of these pair of goggles, as well as Fatshark attitude. V5. This barrel, plug right here, is compatible with all three of these right here, each in disguise, um and fat shark, as well as the option to use one of these longer cables. This is what I prefer. I stick a battery in my pocket, 3s, 2200 or 3000. Milliamp can pretty much get me flying all week long, and this is great because this takes the weight of the battery off your head. You put it in your pocket and you unplug down here it's. Just much easier and much more convenient, so hopefully this video helped you out if you're a new guy getting into the hobby, and now you have an honest overview and a book at the best goggles for 2020. So my number one choice is going to be the HD o twos number two is gon na be sky Zone, both Rios and I'm, not even sure. I can rate these at number three, but we're gon na go ahead and put that link down there below and you guys can check those out. If you don't fly fast, they should be fine, but a hundred millisecond delay is pretty high, so you might want to consider these also there's a lot of goggles out there and a lot of choices.
So hopefully you have a better idea thanks for watching guys.
