    I will be purchasing the F210 next week. I saw that Walkera have Goggles called Goggle4. Which is better? the Fat Shark Goggles or the Walkera goggles. IF I were to get Fat Shark goggles, what all equipment would I need to make this work on the F210?
    Thanks for your help!

    I will buy Skyzone V2 if given the choice. Better. Had diversity out of the box and the new version comes with raceband.

    If not, Fatshark Attitude V3 with Beta Band RX will be my 2nd choice. Maybe some diopters lenses too, hehe, for my near-sightedness.

    The Goggles come with 2 Linear antennas. They will work OK with the F210

    The F210 has a LHCP TX mushroom antenna.

    For best reception you need to replace one of the Linear antennas with a RX LHCP Mushroom.

    You will then have diversity across the antennas.

    Cheers

    Does the Skyzone goggles already have a receiver in it because I read the Fat Shark V2 Does not have one in it?
    Thanks

    Yes, Skyzone included a receiver.

    Which Fatshark? If Dominator V2, which is a discontinued model, it does not include a receiver.

    Replace the other one with a helical or patch antenna too. I think it is a great combo with a clover leaf aka mushroom antenna.

    Patch yes, but 2 helicals are pointless. The idea is too have 2 different types of antennas to fully utilise the diversity.

    With the 2 standard linear antennas the point is to have them bent 90 degrees apart to get the diversity. same as the 90 degrees apart for the RX antennas.

    The only time I would recommend using 2 mushrooms is to have one LHCP and one RHCP. Just for flying different models with different polarisations. But this also sacrifices the diversity. So you would only do this if you are lazy and don't want to adjust antennas correctly for individual models.


    Cheers
