DJI has launched the latest version of their Goggles RE a head-mounted display which provides a first-person view of the drone’s flight allowing users to easily control its path and take shots accordingly.
The new viewer has been specifically designed to support racing drones and falls under the Racing Edition category. The sleek metallic black design would make products like the Oculus Rift and PS VR envious as DJI has achieved such perfection with the external design even though it is not a VR product on the inside.
The Racing Edition DJI Goggles are capable of receiving signal up to 7 kilometers and has a latency of just 50ms allowing most filmmakers, explorers to stay in touch with what their drone sees. The wireless interface used can be seamlessly shifted from 2.4 GHZ to 5.8 GHZ channels based on requirement and the wide-angle lens provide a 148-degree field of view.
There is a SMA port for analog transmission and the on-screen display makes it easy to get the flight information. The head tracking makes it easy to gimbal control and direct the drone in the way you want it to capture the perfect shot.
The newly released DJI Goggles RE works with Mavic Pro, Phantom 4, Inspire 2 and Spark products from the same brand. It costs about $549 and is available for purchase now.
