Very good for the price
Hello friend! I bought this helmet as part of the Cetus X kit. Let's be brief and to the point:
1. These are cool goggles for the price, especially if it's your first purchase.
2. The display resolution is sufficient for comfortable flying.
2. Possibility to replace the antenna (although the one that comes with it is of excellent quality).
3. Cetus X - flight range up to 600-800m with a clear picture (just remember the position of the antenna, the correct channel selection, etc.).
4. Great DVR recording (I bought it specifically for this feature).
5. Sufficient battery capacity, but remember that recording will reduce the operating time by half, so don't record DVR unless necessary.
6. Very convenient channel switching.
Cons: (as if there could be none)
1. IMPORTANT! - Never turn off the goggles while recording, otherwise you will lose all recordings! I think it's a bug, just remember that you can only turn off the goggles when not recording.
2. The iron bracket for the strap on top of the goggles is very annoying, had to modify it.
3. Unfortunately, there is currently no way to install a second antenna (I would have been willing to pay more for these goggles if they had the option for two antennas. This is sorely missed).
4. There are no nose pads.
5. Auto-signal search is absolutely useless, it's better to do everything manually.
6. It's a shame that due to the Type-C, it's only possible to charge and there's no access to the storage. You have to remove the flash drive every time.
P.S. Overall, they are great goggles for beginners for the price.
I know it's low budget and for beginners but my critics are not expensive to implement:
Criticism on high level:
1) It seems like the 640x480p (4:3) Video is streched to the 800x480p Display ? However, I don't think stretching is as good as keeping the original aspect ratio. Even if you use less display. I'll try to see if it's possible to set the original (4:3 ?) aspect ratio. Or can it be that the video is really sent and displayed in native NSTC 800x480 ? I'm not sure but it looks very slightly distorted (circles are ellipses). But it's hard to spot. DVR recording is definitly in 4:3.
2) And I think there is a slight overscan in it. Because when I make the OSD font all the way up, it rid it slightly clipped in the googles view. But in the DVR recording everything is fine. So you lose a bit of lines in the top with this googles ?
3) I only know if the battery of the googles is full or empty. What is also missing is an external charge level display with at least one 4-segment LED. So you could theoretically charge or discharge the glasses to 50-75% for a good storage voltage.
4) It could also have higher brightness.
I will probably give my nephew these googles at some point and get myself a good pair of digital-analogue hybrid glasses.
Nevertheless, it is a good product to get started and test if FPV is really a hobby that you want to do permanently. You can still gift it to some kids for e.g. FPV-cars... or use it as spare googles (it is always good to have 2 devices for testing) or googles for your real-time spectator.
Dvr is amazing !
Hey guy's I only use boxed gogglesand I love the vr003, but I had just few thing to say
better quality video recording,in fact if u post on you tube a dvr recorded by the internal rec, the final result is pretty chappy
I prefer to get more money but have a 1080 p record.
external digital reciver, so I use your goggles for racing and all of the race are going digital with hdzero ,it will be great to have the slot to insert that.
if you will do a pro version, it will be perfect with that said I complain about ui is like be in 2010 not fast and not understandable.
that said I love how they wear and fit the antenna is good enough for the price and all the aio are in the good and comfortable position
have a good day and happy new year eve
