It covers your face pretty well, and it won’t harm your face in any way. You even got additional foam for your nose area if that might be a problem for you. Also, another thing that is worth mentioning is the super lightweight weight, even with the inserted battery. Most of the FPV headsets are way heavier and they can fall off, or drag your face down, but this is one feels really natural and won’t cause any problems.
Buttons and Menu
On the side of the headset you’ll find four buttons, above there are +,-,MENU, SCAN / Power On/Off scripts to tell you what are they doing. By pressing for 4 seconds the “SCAN / Power On/Off” button, the goggles will turn on. Once they are turned on, press the “MENU” button allow you to enter the menu option Function there, every time you press the “MENU” button you will cycle between the following configurations: Brightness adjustment, Contrast adjustment, Saturation adjustment, “AV / AV IN” mode setting, Frequency Display. You can adjust these options with the + and – to decrease and increase their value.
To charge Eachine VR006 goggles we have to use the micro USB charging port (use only this to charge the battery) it takes more or less one hour of to fully charge it. After you plugged into a power source the little light on the top will shine red. The Eachine VR006 goggles support the possibility of charging it while in use. After the device is fully charged, the red light goes off.
The screen is only 3 inches but has a really good resolution. On the lower left, you can see the battery voltage of the goggles and on the bottom, you are able to see the frequency as well. However, it is not possible to hide the battery voltage on the screen, and sometimes it can be a little annoying. The only thing that can be removed is the frequency. After you connect a drone to the headset you will see all the information about the status of the drone.
You can change the input of the goggles from AV to AV IN. So you can watch any other cameras as well if you have an output like that to them.
While the goggles have to antennas it only uses one because it has just one receiver. The headset analyzes the source of the two antennas and connects to the one which has a stronger signal. You can even change the antennas with a more effective one.
If you wish to take a look inside you can do that. The goggles are kept together with only 4 screws so you can disassemble easily. After you did that you can see how the magic works. But be careful, this all disassemble process is not advised and if you do it don’t do anything you can’t redo after.
If this will be your first headset you will be satisfied with it. Of course, there are other headsets for way more money that can do more, has better displays and reception. But for this price, this is one the best goggles comparing to others in price-quality proportion.
