Congratulations on the goggles! I’ve been undecided for almost a year.
What made you choose the white ones over the newer RE edition?
What do you think will be the biggest advantage to having the goggles.

Thanks in advance for your answers. I should just go buy them and be done with!

Well, I got into drones because I saw a video and thought it was so cool. The more I get into it the more I want the things and stuff the go along with it to make it better. The goggles looked like a whole new experience. I, like everyone else, want to feel like I am flying and with these I'm gonna get as close as I can without brain emplants and going to "Total Recall" for the memory of a lifetime. So far I've only hooked em up and walked around. Ran my shoulders into some walls. Had the lady put em in while I walked around. She was in awe. They are really cool. Watched a ton of videos as I still do with the MPP. I'm not quite ready to take off with goggles on yet. But I'm getting there. I'll post more when I get the guts to put it up in the air.

I have used the original all white DJI goggles for over a year, now. There is no drone flying experience like it.

You can fly in the brightest day light, and there is zero glare, ever.

The battery lasts for six hours, so....

The goggle experience is not for everyone, but I love flying with them.

I recommend you try an inexpensive alternatives to see if you will like the immersive goggle experience. The Litchi app and a cheap VR headset will help make the decision. If you like it, splurge. The DJI Goggles are far superior to the cheap set up, and a good used set can be had for half the original price.

I don't use many of the intelligent flight modes, but my understanding is that not all are available when using the goggles. Just so you know. If you use IFM, do some research and determine if you will lose too much.

For me, the only draw back to the goggles is that you will be so immersed in the experience that you may feel vulnerable to the outside world. You could lift the front half up, and look around, and I suppose I should, but it's so immersive that I get lost in it, and never do.

Flying a mavic pro with the DJI goggles is a great escape, and well worth it.

Occasionally, I toy with the idea of buying the Moverio BT-300 FPV, but I always back off. I can't imagine how a projected image could compare to the immersive affect of the goggles. What I would appreciate is the ability to look around me, but all the additional hardware, and set up, seems like more work than the less immersive experience is worth.

Thanks! That’s a very convincing description! Perhaps the best one I’ve read yet. I think you may have sold me. Just as John MacAulay said, I’ve had them in and out of my Amazon cart over and over and over again.

Do you experience any loss of signal range using the goggles?

Thanks,
Paul

My wife spoiled me at Christmas and got me the goggles.She'd also spoiled me a few months earlier with the Mavic Pro Platinum after a Spark "fly away" incident.

Only used the goggles one time so far (3 Mavic batteries worth) and all i can say is Wow! Not sure how it would be possible to go back to a plain old tablet view now!

Thanks for the feedback. I’ve been on the fence about the goggles for a year. I love hearing people’s impressions both good and bad. Thank you for sharing yours!

I feel the same way. Kick back in my lawn chair and fly away.
Her and I have to take turns wearing the goggles. Now I have to get another set for her.

Since I wrote that post I've flown numerous times with the goggles. It is awesome. It's like sitting in the drone flying. I just got lights for the Mavic. I might try flying in the evening with em on. Just to see if I can see.
