Eachine EV800 FPV Goggles
Based on recent events, technology has developed new and impressive types of gadgets when it comes to the drone industry. According to Statista in 2020 there had been $1.25 billion dollars of drone sales in the United States. There is no doubt that these drones are very useful to many fields of activity such as: agriculture, construction and so on. But one particular type of gadget triggers people’s attention nowadays and that is the Eachine EV800 FPV Goggles.
Basically when we consider talking about the drone industry, the eachine is definitely one of the most popular brands. Not only for their good quality and performance but also for their affordable products. Beside the virtual reality that this kind of drone offers by this particularity of having goggles, there are also some kinds of attractive features like the ability to switch from being a goggle to a portable ground station.
Eachine EV800 FPV Goggles characteristics
Firstly, the dimensions of the goggles differ so that EV800 FPV Goggles are 180mm by 145mm by 82mm and are good enough to give you one of the best views while your drone is out there flying fast. You don’t need to worry about the weight because it is quite manageable, these are not heavy compared to other types of goggles having around 375 g with the weight of the battery included. These feel very comfortable on the face so you can use them properly without any inconvenience. You can also use an adjustable belt if you want so that you eliminate the fear of goggles slipping down your face by fixing them to your face size.
We can see a diversity when it comes to receivers because there are 2 virtual receivers working together. The receiver that has the higher signal strength gets displayed. Although the quality of the receiver found on these goggles is not the latest quality but it gets the job done. Another future that really gets these goggles out of the crowd is digital video recording. The LCD is 5 inches long while the resolution of the screen is 800×480 which is quite satisfying. The quality and clarity of the video are good.
The EACHINE EV800 can be detached in two parts. So that the LCD screen can be taken off from the part that you wear on your head. After that you can easily mount the screen on a camera tripod and get your FPV experience that way. The battery is not supposed to last very long, as Enchine claimed so we can expect at two hours of use. It would be better for the battery to be charged often.
Advantages and disadvantages of EV800 FPV Goggles
Were I to mention some advantages regarding these goggles I would definitely start with the price which is very affordable and convenient. Then, I would continue with the trap that is easily adjustable. More than that the capacity of receiving 40 Channel and having Auto Scan and manual channel section. Last but not least, the Dual-use option ( Monitor or Goggles).
The Disadvantages would be the non adjustable magnification screen, the low resolution screen and the incompatibility with all drones.
There have been some questions regarding the EV800 FPV Goggles as well such as:
What are interior dimensions to permit small eyeglasses? Can I wear these with glasses?
The answer is no, you cannot use them with glasses. Because of the small size of goggles so ideally would be to use the goggles without having glasses on.
Are EV800 FPV Goggles compatible with the parrot mambo FPV?
Is this the new version with audio/video input?
The DVR stands for digital video recording and allows you to record everything on the screen. The need for a HD recording device on the drone itself is eliminated by the DVR feature. It is also reducing the weight of the drone. Don’ t expect to have a full professional HD image. But it is decent and good enough.This feature is also useful for finding a lost drone.
Do they have a receiver?
Yes, they have, you don’t need a separate one.
How long does it take for the battery to recharg?
Let’s say between an hour and a half or two. But I strongly recommend to recharge them often. The battery is built-in 3.7V 2000mAH high-capacity polymer battery. When the battery is charging the device the red led will light when charging is completed, there will be a bright green LED on.
I also made a quick overview about what the package contains and what you should expect when the courier arrives. This information and more can be found in the description box of the product so you can check it out.
So besides the goggles you will get the following:
Clover leaf antenna and also Panel antenna
A Battery charger
A Carrying bag for the goggle
3S to DC power cable
A Wall adapter
Also a DC video input cable
Finally, If you are a beginner or a passionate person of drones these goggles will give you a good experience at a reasonable price. It is very likely to develop your skills and it would definitely introduce you to a whole new world. The latest features help you to get your job done and these can be used easily. We should embrace new technology more often and give more weight to new gadgets no matter what. And keep this in mind, besides the FPV resolution that you are looking for when you decide to buy eachine goggles, pay attention to the price, usability, battery, and the screen size too. The bigger the screen the better for the user, of course, depending on your size face. So try to find something that suits you well from every point of view.
