Warning: The retailer mentioned in this article appears to not be fulfilling orders. See our news on this for more details.

So, www.fpvstyle.com is selling a kit for USD 499.- containing a mini FPV quadcopter and video goggles. The specs on the quad sound pretty alright, even though we don’t know the flight controller it does have GPS and uses SimonK firmware on the ESCs and a claimed flight time of 15 minutes on 2200mAh 3S batteries.

So far so mildly interesting. Until you see that they’ve finally caught on to the day and age of the Oculus Rift, and done away with the now-obsolete FPV goggles we’re used to. It’s a giant pair of goggles with a wide field of view! Check out the closeups after the break!

Hubsan working on “Hi-Spec” FPV goggles for April 2014

Hubsan working on “Hi-Spec” FPV goggles for April 2014

January 12, 2014 16:40 | By | 2 Comments

Hubsan is promising a lot of things lately. Recently, their announced H109 quadcopter was supplemented by the H109S Pro X4. Then, Hubsan changed their mind and said that the regular H109 is not going to be released, as they plan to focus on the H109S.

Just recently, Hubsan stated that they are working on a “hi spec” update of their H510 FPV goggles. No details or price point was released, but the planned release date is April 2014.

With a flood of cheap, wide-angle Oculus-clones about to burst into the market, they better be cheap, quick and/or offer something your typical Fat Shark does not. Currently, the best FPV experience can be had on an Oculus Rift devkit with a small PC doing the necessary video distortion. Small single-board solutions as well as complete 3D cameras that already output an oculus-ready signal are about to enter production. Our glass ball says the days of 40-degree FOV goggles like FatShark are most likely numbered.

Remember the Hubsan H510 FPV Goggles? The ones sold for around 100 bucks? Well now you can buy the same goggles, just Walkera-branded, for… $140 at ehirobo.com

Unless they seriously improved the resolution (which they haven’t) or improved the design (nope), not exactly a great deal. If you must absolutely have them, buy the cheaper Hubsan original.. Or better yet, save up for better FPV goggles.
