    I want them. DJI has gone totally radio silent about them.

    I figured we'd hear something around the P4P or I2 release but still nothing.

    I would like to hear something about the goggles as well. I wish DJI would have waited a little longer for the P4P until the dust settled from the Mavic orders. I'm sure that has got to slow down Mavic production somewhat. I feel bad for people still waiting for their Mavic to arrive, I just got mine yesterday. Regardless, I don't want to further slow down Mavic production, but just an announcement about when they will be released and more info on specs would be nice.

    If you don't mind my asking, when was your Mavic order placed? I'm just trying to estimate where I am in the queue.

    Unfortunately, I really think it's impossible to estimate when you will get your order. I ordered on Sept 29th from Amazon LLC. I ordered on Oct 13 from Apple. I just received my order from Apple yesterday. Took it on a test flight and seems to be functioning fine so i cancelled my Amazon order today. DJI has been so random with their shipments.

    So back to the goggles....

    I also want goggles for the Mavic as I am flying all my copters with goggles for years and hate flying via monitor or even more worse, phone or tablet.
    But the DJI goggles are a) very bulky for transportation and b) may not become available before spring 2017.
    So I ordered a very compact foldable Cardboard goggles yesterday which should arrive tomorrow. I intend using it with the Litschi app.

    DJI needs to pace themselves. Those factories must be in overdrive.

    Today I already got the Cardboard goggles mentioned in my latest post and my first impression is very good. My new Sony Xperia XZ works fine with it. I don't have my Mavic yet but I guess the size of the goggles in their box is similar to the Mavic remote and so much much smaller compared to usual cardboard goggles or even the DJI goggles. Now, just my Mavic should arrive and the compatible new Litchi app version should be available on Google Play store...

    I think the goggles are very bulky, I would have liked them to be like the Zeiss Cinemizer

    I also got a pair of cheap goggles. https://www.amazon.com/BlitzWolf-He...1479526204&sr=1-3-spell&keywords=blitzwold+vr For now, this is my first drone and I've only had 2 short flights (too busy with work and too much crappy weather). After I feel a little more confident, I'll give Litchi a try with my iPhone 6+. I did play around with a few VR apps just to check out the blitzwolf goggles. I was actually pretty impressed with the clarity; better than what I expected.

    I will most likely buy the DJI Goggles no matter the cost just to try them out, but If I'm not blown away in comparison to Litchi and my $30 goggles they will be returned. The DJI goggles better be priced sub $400 or be frickin amazing otherwise I can't see people paying big $$$$ for what they can do with Litchi and $30 "cardboard" goggles.

    You really think DJI will take returns on the goggles if you don't like them? I heard they are very hard to deal with as far as returns if there are no defects involved.

    Reviving this thread and answering above...

    They will eventually be available at Amazon or Best Buy. They take returns.

    Well I received my Mavic fly more combo today! charged everything up, went out and flew around, sweet control! and with the Nvidia shield K1 hdmi out, hooked up my Fat Shark goggles, and it was even better! the only thing I noticed is that this baby moves so fast it slews around on you! which is kinda cool! put it through every function the go app had and performe very well! This bird is rock solid on control, but unlike the P4P and P4 it will not stop on a dime when its moving!!! hold on people you wont be disappointed!!! nice video! and I didn't do ANY firmware updates NOTHING THIS was straight out of the box! I wont change a thing until I see a need to! Ive done this with all my DJI drones and haven't had any issues except when the 3,1 go app came out the first time, and that's why I wont change anything! BUT all in all I like the Mavic!

    Too much latency IMO going from Mavic > controller > phone > HDMI out > goggles. The potential beauty of the DJI goggles (regardless of it's fugly form factor) is a direct low latency (relatively) HD downlink connection to the bird. However, I'd be lying if I didn't mention that I fear the goggles may end up being vaporware or specs may be significantly neutered from the ones that were announced... I have no ''evidence", just a gut feeling. Radio silence on them going back to the day they were announced.

    How are you guys who use the mavic + cardboard solution dealing with touch screen needs while they are in the headset adapter? Bluetooth controller or mouse, or just quickly removing and doing what is needed?

    Curious
