I'd like to use my DJI Goggles with my racing quad. The quad has a FatShark ImmersionRC 5.8 GHz video transmitter with this antenna:



This doesn't fit the goggles. It seems like I need this adapter:

1Pc Adapter RP-SMA Female Plug To SMA Female Jack RF Connector Reticulated F/F | eBay


Any thoughts? Is this the correct one?

Should I use the Fat shark antennas or use the pagoda antennas that came with the goggles instead? (I will need another adapter to fit the pagoda antenna to the racing quad though).

Why are you trying to attach non-DJI antennas to the goggles and DJI antennas onto your non-DJI transmitter?

He needs to do one of them, obviously not both. Doesn't matter which, what's most practical.

You don't need to at all. Stick the DJI antenna onto the goggles and the regular antenna to the racing drone, and have the goggles tune into the VTX frequency.

NO, the DJI pagodas that come with it the goggles are polarized the opposite way to 90% of common racing drone antennas. You need to change one to match.

I thought the Pagodas are for the DJI OcuSync Air module to begin with.

No, the goggles come with one pair of Pagodas, one to put on the goggles and one to put on your analog video transmitter.

The Air unit set then comes with its own set of 2 (with different connectors).

Huh, I've been able to tune into all of the analog TXs of other people's racers without having to put a DJI antenna on it so far.

Yup it works, I also use that at close range. You'll just get less performance than you would with the proper polarization.

I will run either fatshark antennas on TX and goggles, or DJI pagoda antennas on both. In either case, I need an adaptor.

The fatshark antennas are right-hand polarized whereas the pagoda antennas are left-hand polarized. Hence they don't work well together other than at close range.

Which antenna do I use to connect DJI Mavic Pro to DJI goggles? I’m confused. Which of course is not directly related to the original question.

Did you ever get this sorted? Trying to find the same thing and going nuts trying. Your link (to eBay item) no longer works.
Cheers
