As far as features are concerned, the HD offers the following:

Field of View and Resolution

A major upgrade. The field of view and resolution allow pilots to see clearer and offers a wider view as a result. This allows for crystal clear viewing when flying. A 45-degree field of view is present, and the LCD screen seen inside of the lenses allow for great color and clarity with great brightness seen.

The Goggles are 2D and 3D compatible.

A neat feature is that you can fine-tune the lenses right underneath the eye ports to adjust in or out and really center in on your eyes.

Comfort

Not only is the head strap easily adjusted, there are soft rubber eye pieces seen. These pieces ensure that when you have the goggles on, they are comfortable at all times.

The rubber also reduces all external light to allow for a truly immersed experience without any outside distractions in the process.

Button Controls

Buttons and controls are seen on the top and bottom of the goggles. This allows for easy adjustments when flying and will not require you to remove the goggles in the process. A few of the options seen are:

  • Volume Select: If you choose to hook the device up to a gaming system, you can change the volume setting.
  • Input Port: A PS/2 data port is available.

Not only can you see through your drone’s camera in FPV, you will be able to record the entire experience and play it back whenever you see fit.

By using the controls mentioned before, you can start and stop recording and even view playback right inside of the goggles to relive the fun again and again.

What I found most accommodating about the Dominator is that it allows for:

  • MicroSD support of up to 32 GB
  • 30 FPS compression is enabled
  • SD card upgradable

As you can see, you will be able to record the entirety of your flight and do so at a rate of 6 Mbps with a flawless 30 FPS playback.

    This looks super interesting! I can definitely see this drawing in even more people who haven’t been interested in drone piloting before.

  • Jordan

    I love that you can fine-tune the lenses so easily! I watched a video and you can adjust in or out and see much better! And the 30 FPS playback looks really awesome; with 32 GB you could film a LOT and that makes me want the fatshark dominator goggles even more. As soon as I can raise the money, I’m getting them!

  • Mike

    WOW! I want a pair of those goggles! Man, I can’t even imagine having the opportunity to see everything my drone films in real time! Just awesome! Thanks for including a video in here; it was like I was flying that drone. The quality of the video seems great and I also love the fact that they made them white!

    I think this is one thing that will make a difference in the way I look
    at RC flying. There is real challenge in the beginning to learn how to
    fly but once that was accomplished I found out that I didn’t use my quad
    near as much as I did in the beginning. I know this will add that
    excitement back in and because of being able to see where I am going I
    will be able to fly around obstructions that I could not before.

    These things are amazing! If the only cons are that they are expensive and they take some practice, sign me up! These look like so much fun!

  • matt n

    Can this be used with any quadcopter or is it just meant for a certain brand or model number? I can think of so many ways to use this and with it having the dvr feature, there are so many more!

  • Britanica

    I question the safety of newer technology like this. After the scare with cellular radiation, putting something that close to the eyes and brain worries me a bit. Is there any information on health concerns of using these things? They are a great idea, I know a few people who would love them, just not me personally.

    • Brad

      the headset is a receiver. the transmitter putting out ‘radiation’ is the controller in your hand, and the video transmitter on the drone (which sends the video back to the goggles)

  • Annie Marie Peters

    The LCD screen on this is awesome! Really, the resolution couldn’t be any better. It’s picture perfect!

  • Joe

    This is something I can get in to! Talk about a game changer. I just hope the wrong people don’t start buying these! I can imagine some peeping toms using these things to spy on neighbors or ex’s.Haha But yea, I do love the concept behind this. The only downside is the cost.

  • Alee

    Is it actually for real? I mean it is unbelievably awesome! I see they are expensive, but I can see why. This is actually pretty amazing! I so want to try a pair of these!

  • Alex London

    Wow – I didn’t know I needed a pair of these until right now, incredible. The quality looks amazing in the video.
