The launch of the first DJI Goggles FPV flight glasses was a landmark event, because DJI began to compete simultaneously in two “fields”: in the virtual reality goggles market and in the flight goggles (FPV) market. And already the first generation of devices gave many users amazing opportunities, including not only a panoramic view from the drone, but also the ability to control head movements.

However, it would be strange if DJI stopped there. As a result, the second generation of FPV goggles, the DJI Goggles Racing Edition, soon appeared. It was not only an improvement – a rather banal technique for many modern companies – but also a new level. The name itself said that the glasses are designed for piloting racing drones. And this is a completely different style of UAV control and other requirements for equipment.

Let’s try comparing two generations of DJI Goggles to see if the ad is true. Maybe it’s just a hype, behind which there is nothing?

Compatibility

The first thing that may be of interest to any potential buyer is the question of which drone models the first and second versions of DJI Goggles work with. There are some peculiarities here. In terms of drone model compatibility, there are many similarities: both devices can be connected to the Phantom 4 series, Inspire series, Mavic Pro, and Spark.

However, this is all that brings them together in this matter. The main difference is that the Racing Edition version received the DJI Ocusync Air system, which performs the functions of a video broadcast module and a camera module. Thanks to this equipment, Goggles RE can work not only with DJI drones, but also with devices from other manufacturers, as well as robotic platforms and radio-controlled models. In this sense, DJI Goggles RE turned out to be more flexible in terms of operation, because they can be used with different types of remote-controlled models, both air and ground.

Ease of use

The DJI Goggles Racing Edition has undergone some design changes (mainly on the inside) that make them more user-friendly. The inside of the headband received leather overlays. They made the helmet softer for the head: users could now be in the helmet for a longer time. The second generation device also received a reshaped face cushion to further enhance comfort when using the Goggles RE.

Transmitter operating frequencies

The original DJI Goggles use the 2.4GHz band. This is a popular frequency channel, so in many areas it can be busy to the eyeballs. This often results in interference, especially during “peak hours” and in some areas where there are many devices that also use these frequencies for operation. At Goggles Racing Edition, engineers have provided the ability to use not only the 2.4 GHz channel, but also automatically switch to the 5.8 GHz channel. However, in Russia, 5.8 GHz frequencies cannot be used by ordinary citizens yet.

Data transfer delay

Data transfer latency is of great importance, especially when it comes to controlling high-speed aircraft and real-time visual data. The reasons are clear, and when it comes to controlling a racing drone, the data latency rate is critical.

Not surprisingly, Goggles RE received improved performance, and data transfer latency is much lower than that of the first generation of goggles. The original DJI Goggles have a latency of 110ms. For comparison, the DJI Goggles Racing Edition has reduced the data transfer latency to 50ms. If you are going to participate in high-speed races, then the value should be minimal in order to make adequate decisions and quickly respond to your commands.

The communication quality of the DJI Goggles RE has improved, not least due to the upgrade of the antennas.

Antennas

The Racing Edition has improved internal and external antennas. Testing showed that the quality of communication has become much better compared to the first generation of glasses. This is an important factor for both high-speed racing and flying a drone in a normal situation. In addition, the improvement allowed the Goggles RE to accept both analog and digital signals.

SD card slot

The Goggles Racing Edition goggles are equipped with an SD card slot so you can record digital video. Unfortunately, the first generation DJI Goggles FPV goggles do not have this advantage.

Similar Specifications

Despite the noted differences, both versions of the glasses have similar features, which are worth mentioning in particular. First, both models allow you to see the environment from the drone on two screens in HD 1080p.

Both versions of the FPV goggles are almost the same weight: the first version of the DJI Goggles weighs 495 grams, while the Racing Edition weighs 502 grams. In this case, as you understand, 7 grams is a mere trifle. Apart from the different color schemes (the first generation is white and the RE version is black), the overall shape, design, and even your tactile sensations are generally similar.

If you are flying a Mavic Pro drone, you can enable “Head Tracking Flight” mode in the DJI app to control the aircraft with head movements.

After the initial success of its Goggles FPV goggles, which could also be used as virtual reality (VR) goggles, DJI turned to the popular theme of drone racing. Competitions, which are held today not only in Dubai, but also in other cities and regions, attract the attention of a huge number of spectators with their entertainment and a lot of interesting events. However, watching a high-speed drone fly from the side and controlling it and seeing the environment from the onboard camera are very different things. Pilots will need not only a powerful machine and an adequate remote control, but also appropriate flight goggles. And in 2017, DJI took a step forward for drone racing pilots by releasing special FPV goggles. This was the second generation of DJI Goggles – Racing Edition, that is, special goggles for racers.

Stylish design and design features

Fans of DJI products will remember that the first version of the Goggles FPV goggles was made in white plastic (for a comparison of the two models, see the article “DJI Goggles vs DJI Goggles Racing Edition”). Therefore, the first thing that many will pay attention to is the slightly mysterious, elegant matte black color of the second generation of DJI Goggles Racing Edition (RE) goggles. The color solution is chosen very well and corresponds to the latest fashion trends in the design of products of this kind. At the same time, the matte black color of the outer part of the case goes well with the red leather inserts on the headband of the glasses, which will remind someone of expensive sports cars, and someone of the combination of black DJI Goggles RE glasses with the red version of Mavic Air or dark DJI Inspire 2. Compared to the white DJI Goggles of the first version, the described model looks more expensive (however, it costs accordingly) and more modern.

In particular, the new goggles are more comfortable with thicker and nicer red leather cushioning and an updated face cushion. The RE version comes with improved video latency. Now 50ms instead of 110ms. Especially when you’re in the middle of a drone race, this makes a big difference. On the other hand, the new Goggles RE are slightly more expensive than the original.

The design and construction of DJI Goggles RE take into account the needs of the user as much as possible, and therefore the updated version of the flight glasses turned out to be much more convenient and practical. Judge for yourself. Changes have been made to the design of the headband and the shape of the pads, which now makes it possible to wear such glasses for longer (this is important, because the model is somewhat heavier in weight than similar or similar devices from competitors). In addition, pay attention to the cuts made in the temples of the glasses, which help protect the screens from flare. This not only helps to watch videos from a flash drive in excellent quality, but also to engage in professional shooting from a quadrocopter, for example, from the DJI Inspire 2 mentioned above.

The glasses are somewhat larger and heavier, also due to the dual 1080p screens. But this solution helped to improve the display quality and resolution. This is very important for the effective control of the drone and overcoming obstacles.

The DJI Goggles RE controls are on the right. Here you’ll find an on/off button, a battery indicator, and a touchpad. The touchpad will help you access menus, various flight controls and quick capture modes. For example, by wearing goggles, you can control the gimbal of a flying drone with a movement of your head. The screen displays all options for the necessary information information: flight data, flight battery charge level, data from the controller and the goggles themselves, as well as signal quality. It is also noteworthy that with the Goggles RE you can control not only DJI drones, but also drones from other manufacturers, as well as work with both digital and analog transmission (the SMA port is provided for this).

Why do I need an OcuSync video transmission module and a camera module?

You can purchase DJI Goggles in two versions: goggles separately or a combo set. However, in order to feel all the advantages of the new FPV device, we recommend you the second option – the combo kit. It includes not only glasses, but also a video transmission module and an OcuSync camera module. The high-performance data transmission module provides a low level of signal delay (less than 50 ms). This figure is two times better than the same parameter in the first generation of DJI Goggles.

The modules can be installed not only on drones, but also on other types of radio-controlled or robotic platforms (air, land, water) or real vehicles. That is, you can install the modules on a racing drone, on a radio-controlled car or boat, on a real plane or boat.

This choice is amazing and provides you with great opportunities without being tied solely to DJI technology. You get 1280×960 HD video transmission (with optional 720p/60fps and 480p/50fps transmission support), and automatic frequency hopping (FHSS) radio spread spectrum transmission.

The latter is important if you have to work in an area with a large number of devices that operate, for example, in the popular 2.4 GHz frequency channel. The 5.8GHz channel switching function provides more options and allows you to control the aircraft stably and receive normal video and other data from the aircraft. The maximum range of the transmitter is up to 7 km. All the specs noted are interestingly the same as those of the Mavic series drones, even the first version of the Mavic Pro.

As for the camera, it is equipped with a 148º FOV lens and a 1/3″ sensor. This guarantees the user much higher image quality and resolution compared to traditional analog cameras. The DJI camera module also uses a global shutter to reduce the “jelly effect” or rolling shutter.

A whole set of antennas

In addition to the antennas found inside the DJI Goggles RE, the user can also obtain the DJI OcuSync Air Unit, which comes with three types of compatible interchangeable antennas that provide 360° reception with the unit. Let’s see what exactly these antennas are for, what are the specifics of each type.

  • Pagoda – This circular polarized antenna works best in the 5.8 GHz band.
  • Cylindrical: Also circular polarized, designed to operate on 2.4 and 5.8 GHz for fully integrated operation.
  • Dipole/Dipole: Linearly polarized, this antenna operates at 2.4 and 5.8 GHz and is lightweight for clear video transmission at close range.

With what and for what it can be used?

According to DJI, the DJI Goggles RE was designed specifically for use with racing drones. They are compatible with the OcuSync modules described above (video transmission module, air module and camera module). The goggles can also be used with the following DJI drones: Mavic Pro, Spark, Phantom 4 series and Inspire 2 series models. The glasses allow you to watch videos in MP4, MOV, AVI and MKV formats, and even watch panoramas in 6K.

As already noted, one of the important advantages of DJI Goggles RE is their ability to support devices from both DJI and third-party manufacturers. So, the goggles can work with devices that have flight controllers installed: KISS, F3, F4 and Naze. In addition, controllers such as X9D (FrSky), DEVO 10 (Walkera), T8FG (Futaba), T14SG (Futaba), WTF09sll (WFLY), and AT9S (RadioLink) can be connected to the DJI product.

Summing up

DJI Goggles and DJI Goggles Racing Edition are two generations of FPV goggles. However, if you look closely at their characteristics, then these are not just two generations of glasses, but also devices designed for different users. And the point is not only in financial capabilities (the first generation, of course, is cheaper), but also in the tasks that pilots set for themselves. If you are not a fan of drone racing and you do not need the technology to automatically switch to available data frequencies, then the first generation of DJI Goggles is enough for you. However, if you set more serious tasks for yourself and your aircraft, and even more so if you have a drone manufactured not by DJI, but by another company, then the choice is obvious – DJI Goggles RE.

    Why do I need to activate in the first place, and the activation process is horrid, The instruction manual does not even mention downloading the DJI Assistant app let alone when your search for, that there are 2 versions of the assistant and you need V2. I have downloaded the app and it wants a login, according to the instructions on their website I need to use their special ID/password which gives me a password error.Ok after finally getting the right app installed and creating a dji account and following the instructions I got it activated. If the instructions had came with the goggles , instead of making me search Google for help and all I found was old problems

    I am a very experienced FPV drone pilot and builder who have used many FPV goggles including the name brand ones such as Fatshark and Skyzone’s. The DJI FPV Goggles V2 so far is bar none in terms of its immersive digital HD experience, penetration, and impressive range for FPV flying.The activation process is indeed quite straight forward. All we need is to go to the DJI website to set up an account, download the DJI Assistant (for FPV), logon the account, and plug in the DJI goggles to the PC. The Goggles can use any standard 2S – 6S Lipos for the power with a variety of settings.I have used it with my Cinelog 25 and Babyhawk II HD with excellent performances. The DVR on the goggles provides crystal clear recorded videos. Definitely a no-regret investment for my FPV experiences.

    I purchased the Mavic 3 but I suppose I should have checked first. I thought the Mavic 3, being an expensive drone would have no compatibility issues but sadly I was wrong. Hopefully there may be some future updates.
