What are FPV Video Goggles?
First Person View (FPV) is a sport where a small camera and video transmitter is mounted on a radio controlled plane or quadcopter ("camera drone"). The live video feed is transmitted from the air for the pilot to view and so fly the aircraft from the "cockpit view" or "first person view".
The FPV goggles form the ground based part of the system, displaying the live video on magnified screens in front of the pilot's eyes and creating a totally immersive experience.
Which are the best types?
FatShark produced the first dedicated FPV goggles with built-in video receiver, and they have been the market leader ever since. We carry the full FatShark range.
Manufacturers such as Spexman and Headplay offer alternatives for different requirements and price points. Have a browse around this section to see all of the various options.
Using FPV Goggles with RC Quadcopters
RC quadcopters (or "camera drones" as they are often known) are a perfect platform for an airborne camera system. A small screen to view the live image is one option, but sun glare can be a problem. Goggles get around this problem by blocking out all ambient light giving you a perfect view from your aircraft.
