New Product
Headplay HD Goggles by Rangevideo

Well at first I was very excited when these were announced, however after having placed a pre-order based on the given dates and finding those dates being constantly pushed back, plus the fact my card was charged immediately as opposed to when goods were ready for dispatch, then to find that despite the claims of first come first served others who had placed orders long after myself were being sent their goggles.
Then to cap it off I was informed that RV was originally invited to Russia to colaborate with Victor of eYebox on a joint venture to produce the eYebox goggles, yet it seemed RV had simply gone off and produced their own instead
This news particularly stuck in my throat as I recalled the huge amount of fuss when HK launched their plane which was similar in design to one of RVs, I also felt like a fool for supporting them

Anyway it was at that point I decided to cancel my pre-order, and I'll tell you they were nowhere near as quick to refund the payment as they were to take it

Anyway that's where I stand on these goggles, I'm sure the goggles may be great for some people but personally will never put any more money in their direction now

Well at least I can now happily buy the HK version of the plane, I did like it (clear dome aside) but had refused to buy it on principal as (embarrasingly) I too was one of those defending RV on the subject
Some others who were also very vocal on defending RV regards the plane seem to have developed double standards though

================================================== ===================
This was the information as sent to myself....

Alledgedly in 2013, a meeting arranged by a Russian FPV enthusiast with Vova of RV (and now Headplay), looking for RV to cooperate with him in the production of some new goggles

I wasn't really saying anything about you. I just said why haven't they posted any info on their website? How can one buy something without knowing what's in the box?

Hi,

There is only one model of the new goggle: Headplay HD. It includes everything. The battery is held by velcro.
Watch the videos of the pilots trying the HD's. The response has been so positive that we HAD to start accepting pre orders. It looks like we will sell out the first batch.

There is no 3D viewing and no head tracking.

Many have commented that with the larger mag lens, the image looks '3D' and very immersive.

We showed the goggles to at least 100 people in Florida.

I tried these out at the CFL FPV and they were amazing. The guys at Range Video were great and seriously on point. They know what they're talking about and are putting out a revolutionary product. Skilled pilots as well. I can't wait until the Headplay is available. Thanks guys, keep me in mind for the first release!"

Hi Reznikova,
Well, we had a chance to view those videos to get an idea how people feel about them. We would love to get some more facts instead...

Like what resolutions screen is? What FOV do you get with the lens you are suing, what is the max IPD? More facts pls, less feelings.

They just refined eyebox idea see more here http://www.eyeboxfpv.com/
By the time you buy all components and build it yourself it comes close to the price RV is offering these for.

screen is 1280 x 800. claims no blue screen.

http://www.headplay.com/#about-1-section

it looks like it has a battery attached to the strap in the back of your head. the wire running over the top looks like the battery cable and the power connector is the silver one in the renders. You can kind of see it in the first picture.

IPD is not as critical with this design compared to the more traditional dual-lcd design. Actually I don't really see how they wouldn't work for anyone unless their eyes are so far apart they don't fit in the goggles.

Thanks boopidoo!
I never had experience with one screen goggles ... think I'll give them a try and order as well...
Looks like good exchange from DOM HD ... I relly hate DOM HD for constant changes and misleading info all the time... first they claim that ipd is up to 73mm, then I measured it when they arrived it's 71.5 ... then that story with head tracker included ... So I am no more FatShark customer ...
also probably thease head plays have bigger FOV.
