Fatshark 1.3Ghz goggles

Does anyone know of (Fatshark) 1.3Ghz fpv goggles? I have been looking for ages but can't seem to find one. Or otherwise a custom module that makes the 5.8Ghz receiver in the goggles 1.3Ghz?

They have it advertised or shown on their website for a future release date. Over on FPV lab there are a few threads interacting with some of the employees from FS and they indicate that we should not get our hopes up. There are several issues with developing and producing a 1.3ghz module to fit inside the slot where the other ones do on the Dominiators or Attitudes. If one is released I speculate it will come with a custom module cover with some or most of the module sitting on the outside of the goggle.

you still need to lug around a receiver/antenna/battery/tripod ground station.

why would they mention this if they didn't have test samples already? They don't make modules under the Fatshark name btw.
"1st articles of the NexwaveRF 1G3 modules are in with sensitivity on par with external Lawmate RXs. Will be extensively flight tested over next few weeks to ensure its worthy of the NexwaveRF name!"

Understandable, but I would imagine, the 1.3 system would work far better, being on top of a tripod, than on goggles.....meaning its higher off the ground. Plus, thats gonna be some big heavy antenna(s) that you put on top of your head.

It takes me 10 seconds to take my 6ft tripod down to a foot. Very easily portable, but I completely understand you point.

I mount mine with a circular wireless 1.2 wheel and it weighs about 10grams. about the same as a fatshark spironet so I hardly notice it.
I use to use a tripod ground station and it's just a pain to lug around. Can't even notice any difference to my lawmate receiver but I didn't use it for range, I use it for penetration with my quads. Its such a liberating feeling to leave the tripod setup at home.
