    Im getting ready to purchase my first pair of goggles and would like to get peoples opinions on what goggles to get and why.

    Im running an F210, and am only flying recreationally so far, but would like to get into racing.

    What are your suggestions for an inexpensive but quality set?

    So after watching some more reviews on YouTube, Ive moved on from the Eachine to either a Skyzone SKY02S V+ or a Aomway Commander. What are your opinions on these two? I know bjr981s recommended the Skyzones a while back on this forum, but I like the fact that the Aomway comes with a fan (I'm in Arizona, and it gets hot in the desert).

    Grateful for any opinions.

    I am converting to the DJI Goggles RE model.

    If you use the Flight pack that comes with the top model you get 7Klm range.

    Its Occusync but it also supports analogue 5.8Ghz.

    You can also get the new v3 Skyzones they have a fan now.

    Cheers

    So it is, I had assumed from the picture that it was single screen from the fact that is the box style.

    Unfortunately, it' out of my budget.

    I'v got to go for a more entry level price.

    BTW, thanks for all the assistance and advice you provide.

    Interestingly enough while it is dual screen it needs diopters for those that require reading glasses. No other Dual screen I am aware of has this issue.

    As long as you get a set of goggles that supports 32 channels or more you will be fine.

    You just will need to buy an LHCP Mushroom antenna. Walkera use LHCP exclusively on all their VTXs.

    The flight packs for the DJI Digital FPV are smaller than the Occusync ones so will fit a 210 very well. The controller should work fine. I bought a set and a couple of flight packs but have not set them up yet.

    If you do get one then come back here if you have any issues.

    You should not need to swap anything just get the 210 external Rx connection. It should be plug and play after that.

    Cheers
