I reviewed the fat shark attitude v6s. It seems like a couple weeks ago on the channel and we were explaining in that review that they are lyco screens. They are liquid crystal displays and they are made by intel, but they are real, not really made anymore, because they’re super expensive to manufacture. So will they replace oled? No because oled are cheaper and they are brighter, but honestly, between the two, if you’re doing a comparison, it’s hard to tell the difference and i’m going to show you in this review, we’re going to do a little bit of a comparison of both of the screens. We’Re going to turn on the quad use my gopro and we’re going to go back and forth from both of these screens. So i can show you lycos and i can show you olad there’s, not that big of a difference, but what the biggest difference about this pair of goggles versus the fat shark attitude v6s is well number one skyzone dvr is just superior to anything. Fat shark makes – and it seems, they’ve – been using a very similar, cheap dvr for the past five years and it seems like we’re still in hd02s. We still have that same sort of it kind of looks a little bit muted and a little grainier compared to the skyzone dvr skyzone dvr is very clear and bright and looks great. The colors are very saturated. So if you’re looking for nice, dvr grab a pair of sky zones that’s what most of the reviewers these days are using the sky zones, my daily driver goggles, are the skyzone, 03os and i’ve had those for seems like three years going on now so i’m interested To try these out today, for you guys, um, and i think the biggest difference here is in the specs, the specs.
They did one up the fat shark attitude v6. So if you’re, looking at the fat shark attitude, v6s versus the o4 l’s and you’re wondering which one should i get well, the o4ls are more expensive, well, there’s, a reason for that, and the reason for that is that these have a larger focal adjustments. They are the same field of view at ‘ degrees field of view, but the focal adjustment on these is negative, six to plus six so guys that are wearing glasses. These are the same focal adjustment as the more expensive, 500 plus 04 x’s out there. So um top tier goggles with very similar specs but lycos screens on there, so making these a little bit cheaper for you to buy, but with that same focal range. So you know if you, if you wear glasses, these are a clear choice. Now the fat shark attitude v6s have the focal range from negative two to positive six, so uh yeah, the sky zone has beat fat shark out in the focal adjustment range, which is which is really really good news for guys that wear glasses and most of the Guys i fly with out there. You guys are a bunch of old, dudes and yeah. A lot of you guys have glasses so um. This pair of goggles is likely to work for you without having to have diopter inserts um like a lot of the fat sharks. Need so there is no inserts for diopters in here, so you can’t have diopters made but i’m pretty sure with that focal range, that these will work for you if you do have glasses and you don’t have to wear your glasses when you’re using these.
So this is great, so binocular style, goggle, they’re the same exact resolution as the attitude v6s. They are 1280×960, both the same lycos screens but exact same resolution, and these are looking pretty good. The screens are the right distance from my eyes, and the image quality on here looks great and the image itself looks very big on the screen. So it looks like you’re looking at a really large screen and all of the osd is in focus and i’ve talked about that on fat sharks. Before that there are some blurry edges, your eyes, pupillary distance to be able to focus to the edge of the screen. It has to be adjusted exactly right in a pair of goggles, so if it’s not and it’s the wrong distance from your pupil, then you’re going to have some image blurring around the edges and that’s been some of the biggest complaint about fat shark. In the past five years, so they’re still working to get that distance right. But it seems like skyzone has like hit the nail on the head, starting out with the o2os as far back as the o2os, so another great pair of goggles, from skyzone with steady v receiver included and some beginner antennas i’m gon na put some links down below. For better antennas, so if you order these go ahead and get yourself, the foxier patch echo antenna, i’ve talked about that before it’s, like 8 db and very very high gain on those and get yourself just a right hand.
Circular polarized antenna to pair up with that, and that would be the ultimate combo for freestyle. So let’s go ahead now and let’s test these out. We’Ll show you the dvr show a little flying and then we’ll come back to the bench and we’ll check these out. On the bench and we’ll give you a little bit of comparison between oled and lycos. Here we go all right, guys, let’s go ahead and take off with the o4ls and we’re just using the stock antennas today, because i just wanted you guys to see how the reception is in in kind of a close up setting with my recon, for i just Reviewed this quad on the channel – and it was a lot of fun to fly like 28 minutes flight time with a lion full gps and and it is an analog quad, so it’s perfect for today’s test and look at the dvr. The dvr looks great sky zones. If you’re new to fpv sky zones have superior dvr to any other pair of analog goggles that i have tested on my channel in the past seven years, so that’s that’s a lot to be said and skyzone has dramatically taken over the market in the last three Years fat shark started out as the go to pair of goggles and still a lot of fpv racers do buy them for close up 25 milliwatt racing in multi gp. But you know when we’re doing freestyle most of the freestyle guys are starting to buy sky zones because they now have external module bays and the o4ls, like the o4x’s, have dual module base.
So that’s really nice. You can start out with the steady view. You can add another steady view: receiver on the left hand, side of the goggles, and then you can have really really solid penetration through trees and around bushes. Now, in this backyard right here, there’s some good canopy in between my goggles and these little stick antennas. So we’re going to fly down the back of the yard and i’m going to show you how those work out with the reception – and this test is mostly for just you know, general backyard flying it’s, not a long range test or anything like that, but mostly just To show you how bright the colors are in the dvr and how how nice the skyzone dvr looks, and for years most of us that have been flying fpv, we all know that this dvr is is looking great and in comparison it is better. There is a comparison, a direct comparison on my channel if you want to go back and look at the attitude, v6 review go back and watch that review in comparison to the o2s and the o2s from skyzone there’s. Definitely a difference that the image is sharper in the dvr and the colors are brighter and i feel like more true to life, whereas the fat shark dvrs they just look a little bit muted and a little more blurry. So what happens? Is your fpv camera on the view it does end up looking a little bit nicer, so that’s that’s one thing to to take home for this particular pair of goggles.
The dvr is great, but flying them on the stock antennas in in a backyard setting they’re they’re acceptable. I think they’re actually doing pretty good now i’m going to fly down the very back of the yard, with a whole bunch of trees. In the way between me and the goggles and there’s some overhang there and coming down the side of the yard. Now with that playground, equipment in the way and more trees in the way and there’s a little bit of breakup. But i think the stock antennas were they’re, just fine for you to start out with, but i would definitely upgrade to the echo patch antenna and that just a lollipop three or something like that for right hand, circular polarized, antenna just just fine for me and and I’Ve flown miles and miles out with that same combo, without even using a ground station, you can get out three more miles or more just using your 5.8 goggles it’s kind of cool. If you’re on an 800 milliwatt, you can get way out there. But these look great so let’s go ahead back in to the studio now and let’s, take a look at both of these pairs of goggles on the bench oled and we will compare them to the lycos here. We go all right guys before we jump into the specs on both of these pairs of goggles. We have the o4ls on this side, they are white and my original 03 0s over here on this side.
These are oled, and these are the lycos monitor screens. So we’re going to just go zoom in now and we’re going to go in a little closer on the oleds first, and the thing we want to see is: is there like a big difference between the brightness, the way that the screen looks, the sharpness and all Of that i’ve been using these this pair of goggles for yeah a couple years now and i love my o30s they’re they’re, my daily drivers they’re just easy to use there’s no light leaks. It does not have an in an external module base. It has a built in module, it does not have the new steady view module bay, the biggest reason that people will not get these right now is the fact that you can get a pair now with a module bay. So this is the o4 else. They have steady view and honestly i don’t see a big difference. I see a little difference as far as the graininess goes, and i think that these are a little less bright. You can also see flashing on the screen, which means that the refresh rate is a little lower on these versus the oled screens, so um. That means that, as the images is being fired to the screen, it’s just there’s a little more black in between each frame. So a lower refresh rate versus the oleds, so these are firing out pretty fast on the refresh rate, so that’s interesting to me for this review and this test that the lyco screens seem to be a little lower refresh rate.
But i’ll tell you looking side to side if i was to compare both of these side to side just comparing these. I think that if you turn the brightness all the way up on the lycos screens that they are still very bright, these lenses don’t appear to be as bright as oled screens, but they are damn close. So i again to the naked eye i don’t think you’re gon na see a lot of difference. I think the biggest difference here is well. They seem to be a little a little clearer. They make your fpv camera. Look fantastic and i’ve, seen this before with skyzone. In comparison for skyzone attitude, v6s these 030s look better on the screen. They look way less muddy and and that’s the the word i can use uh muddy. They look the fat shark attitude, v6s, look muddy for the color saturation and sort of the the softness of the image. So, whereas these look nice and clear and sharp the sky zone, goggles tend to look a little bit muddy and less sharp. You can see fine details in sky zone goggles when you’re looking at your fpv camera and that’s that’s. What you’re looking for is sharpness nice saturation and a bright screen and that’s. What most people want? That’S that’s, the general need of the crowd out there. We want to be able to see that scraggle coming at us in the trees. So if you can see that tree branch that doesn’t have any leaves on it, then that’s a win for a pair of fpv goggles.
But there you go there’s, lycos versus led and i think there’s some differences. But they are very slight and i think the biggest difference is that you’re gon na get a little faster refresh rate and when i back off of it a little bit, it doesn’t show it quite as much. But you can still see it flash in there. So that is the difference. Guys let’s go ahead and take a little closer look at the o4 specs. Here we go all right, guys. Welcome to the specs part of this review and we’re going to talk about some of the good stuff and we’re going to talk about some of the changes between the version, uh, all the way up to the new o4l series. Now this series has been updated to the new standard with the new os. This has a completely different operating system than this one. The o3os have an older version and they have the built in module bay. So, if you’re like well, these are oled. I should get these instead of getting these. These are cheaper and they’re oleds. Well um. These are the newer, updated ones. They have less buttons on top. They also have mov format on here for the sd card, which is able to record on an sd card up to like 128 gigabyte card versus this one. I can’t get anything over 32 gigabyte working on these. Whenever i come out with a card on accident with 64 gigabyte card, i come home with no video.
It shows that it’s recording on the screen and when i get home i have no video. So i i’ve done reviews before and come home with. No video had to go back out and do it all over again, so these will accept an sd card which most of my cards now are 64 gigabyte, are bigger and that’s kind of how it is for everybody right now, but um the aspect ratio on the O4 l’s are also 4, 3 or 16 by 9, which is great, and some people didn’t like these, because they were 16 by 9. Only but the biggest thing. For me, the biggest takeaway for these versus the attitude v6s is the fact that yeah the the focal range on these negative six to positive six adjustable focus range, that’s, really really good for guys that have glasses and um. You have plus two to negative six for adjustable focus range on the attitude v6s, so also a big difference between sky zones versus fat shark, and this is something that helps me in the field, and i think it will help you too. If you have your battery of choice in the field, this is just a 3s 2200 right here. This is an old e flight battery. I usually keep one of these in my pocket. The fat sharks come with the 2 up battery for 18 to 18 650s and it goes on the side of the goggles and plugs into the side.
That has been the standard, maybe three or four years ago, but those 18650 packs they don’t really last that long and it’s kind of a pain, so my go to battery is usually a 3s 3000 milliamp battery. I also have a 2650 that i use, and this 2200 will last me all week. Long one battery goes in my pocket and the best thing about sky zones. Is. They include this cable that a lot of guys end up buying anyway. If they have fat sharks, you can buy these on amazon and use them with just about any pair of goggles. As long as the barrel, connector fits your goggles i’ve tried these with fat sharks and i think they they do work with fat sharks, but xt 60 there and you just put it in your pocket, so that’s that’s really great. I don’t like all that extra weight on my head and these last longer than the 18650s, and i can still charge these on my lipo charger at home. Before i go out, i have tons of these extra batteries laying around so that’s nice, but the biggest thing about this is the power range also is from like two, i believe: it’s 2s to 6s yeah it’s from 6.5 volts, all the way up to 25.2 volts And it also has a usb port on this pair of goggles, so you can power these from like a battery bank with a usb port on it.
So you can come out and power, these from a power bank, so that’s that’s, actually super cool um. I usually keep a couple power banks on me when i’m out and doing reviews in the field in case my phone starts dying but 7 to 13 volt on the fat shark attitude v6 is only allows you to do a 2 or 3s battery. So if you screw up and you grab a 4s 1300 and plug it in your sky zones, are i mean your your fat? Sharks are gon na, be just obliterated, so you will fry them. If you do that, so be super super careful about that. The o4ls, as far as i know so far guys are coming in white. I don’t see a whole bunch of different colors. You should be able to get some skins for them soon. They also come in at 267 grams, which is a little heavier than the original, o30s and i’m still getting used to the jog wheel here. But i like the recess button that they did on these as well in comparison to the older ones. It has this sort of button that comes out. This looks a little nicer and it has an oh well. It has an led around the whole thing. So when you turn them on, you can see that they’re on this old one doesn’t show you, but the fan is also very powerful and it’s adjustable as well. It also has head tracking, so if you want to do head tracking, that means your little camera.
That looks left and right that you can pair up with these goggles. It will do that as well. I don’t know that these support 3d. I know that they do 2d, but this pair also has dual module base. So you can start out with the steady review receiver, and this will get. You started right here. These antennas are not the greatest, but the fact that it comes with steady view. You can upgrade it also to to rapid fire. If you want to – and you have an extra module bay over here – so you can do two modules with quad versity on here, which is pretty cool. So that means that you can run four antennas, two patches and a right hand circular polarized on both sides and that’s nice. They also come with two different face plates, which is cool because i have a smaller head, i’m kind of like a large chinese person. I’Ve said before the original faceplate is a little large. If you have a bigger head, like stew from uav futures you’re, going to use this one. Most americans have larger heads than most of the chinese, but these are quite smaller, as you can see and no light leaks coming in through there. So i was good flying these today and they also come with the larger strap which i like. Now. If you have a really big head, stu did say that these were kind of tight on his head.
I have them all the way out for my head and you can also buy different straps and i can put some links down below for some straps, but these fit perfect once i did stretch them all the way out, they’re pretty much to the end right there. So one thing to think about fat straps are all um. Most people are using these days it’s just much more comfortable than the thinner, straps and i’m happy to see that even like on this pair of goggles, i have fat strap with the o3o, so that’s nice and i may have switched that out at some point. But i think that the o4ls are a nice addition to the skyzone line, and i felt like, since this pair of goggles does have the steady view. Receiver. It has a larger focal adjustment range um. The screens look good they’re they’re, not a huge difference between these and the o3os, for the exception of maybe the refresh rate on there, you can see there’s a clear difference in the refresh rate so over time. What that does for your eyes? Is it it kind of it gives it gives more stress to your eyes over long periods of time if you have a lower refresh rate, because your eyes are seeing more black frames, there’s it’s so fast that your eyes can’t detect it. But i mean you know if you’re, if you’re doing video editing a lot of times, what video editors want is a very high refresh rate monitor so that they have less fatigue.
If you’re video editing for 10 hours a day like i used to do that’s very important, so most of the macs out there have a very high refresh rate. So if you look at that screen right there, you can see you know there’s there’s, no weirdness going on right. There um, but this has the new ui on here – has 10 languages. It has the same exact resolution as the fat shark attitude: v6s 1280×960. Better dvr larger focal range um so for the little bit of extra money that they’re charging for these ah yeah, i’m gon na, say, i think, it’s. I think it’s justifiable they’re, just a nicer pair of goggles than the attitude v6s, and i and i own, both so um yeah and i wish i’d had a pair of uh. The v6s here today to to do that amd with the gopro. But mainly my concern was showing you the difference between oled and lycos, and that was that was today’s, big takeaway for you, so um. If you’re on the fence about you know getting o3os or the o4ls, you know. I think that uh, if you want an external module bay with the option, to do one more module over here, then these are the ones to get with the new os and much larger diopter range. So the new screens are great. They are different than the original screens they’re completely different, so i’ll leave it up to you guys.
You can make some comments down below what you think of these goggles and the specs you can i’ll put the link down below you, can check them out, grab a pair or just you know, go over the specs yourself and see what you think. So hopefully this review taught you something and you found it useful for you. So please do subscribe on the channel guys and you will see more reviews coming up really really awesome stuff. Coming up on the channel. I have some cool cool drones coming up, so stay tuned for more analog and dji digital reviews, guys i’m justin davis take care, stay humble and be kind out there to each other. The fpv is such a wonderful sport.
