Default DJI FPV Goggles or the DJI Racing Edition

I've just started researching these and although I feel confident of 'Attained Happiness' with either, they both have pros and cons.

The FPV Goggs use the 'Air Unit' and the Racing Edition uses the Ocusync Air System. Recently, DJI added more OSD telemetry to the FPVs while the Racing Edition already had it.

I'm leaning towards the FPVs on account of the sweet digital signal.

I still have more researching to do but if any of you have experience with either, please share as it would certainly help.

One of these will be my first FPV set setup. All those years ago when I stumbled onto a Blacksheep FPV vid, well, that vid is what lit the fire and got me into this hobby. What a life changer!

If you are into FPV you really should check out the DJI FPV package options. I took the plunge and I'm glad I did. I received the Goggs and two air units.

The digital video looks fantastic!

The goggs have native telemetry for battery volts, signal strength, etc.

I wanted more telemetry such as airspeed, altitude, gps coords, etc., so I got a quad FC. With that I had to learn about Betaflight and using it to configure the FC. I hooked up a GPS module to the FC and I'm all set!

I piggy backed it onto a friend's quad and it works great.

Now I'm having two mounts printed up. In a few days I'll install it on my Heli.

Really glad I did this.
