You can not compare Foxtech goggle price directly with Fatshark Goggle. Fatshark goggle don`t have headtracker in it.

I tried Foxtech goggle with Guizmo last week end, and I agree with him, they are awesome in my opinion. Very light, excellent picture quality, headtracker work very well (auto drift correction), diopter lens can be add. The price is justify and not so expensive if you think that you will use headtracker.

I prefer the Foxtech overall compare to the first version of Fatshark goggle. But it is important to say that Fatshark goggle second version (aviator 2010) use similar optic and are also a good choice if you do not want headtracker

the most cheap site to buy them is hobbycity to date, they are also at himodel and foxtech
hi, please understand, we make the goggles ,not hobbycity, and we don't know if their goggles even have acceleromoter and compass inside, coz we did sell about 30 pieces to a unnamed company long time ago. and the goggles actually had 3 version,
version 1: only magnetic headtrack, not moving accurately,pass
version 2: has accelerometer and magnetic compass, moving weird, not correct the heading correctly, pass
version 3: the current FOXTECH version, has gyro, accelerometer and magnetic compass, so that's why it can correct the drift
so i can't guarantee the goggles they sell is 100% same to ours.

here is a video i tested based on the newest version, so you can see i don't need to reset the headtrack during fly.
AIO goggles, follow A UAV (3 min 48 sec)


and here is also some pics of my new wraping box.
this new box would make the shipping weight less than 400g, so the shipping can be greatly saved.

we are also planning to add one 5.8G 10mw tx in the box as standdard
why should i do it?
coz it should benefit everyone.
if you use 900mhz or 1.3G, and you still like AIO goggles, you can connect the 10mw 5.8G tx to the av output of your own video receiver, then use AIO goggles to receive the signal transfered by the 10mw 5.8G tx,
you can also use it to watch REMOTE television or play REMOTE PSIII or XBOX

what abut flytech ? they have very professional box and kit,

who is the real manufacturer here?

the new box looks a bit cheap for a 450$ product, but its okey, better than the aluminium box in my opinion, cheaper and more light

The most important thing is , with the new box , you save about 10-15 USD shipping , the box is just a sample , a printed and hand cutted one, real box will be more beautiful, if you have seen Guai 330x 's box, they are similar.
I admit the sample looks a bit shabby.

i heard a rumor that hobbycity is not going to sell hobby toys, i don't know if it's true, they are also selling fatshark cheaper than factory price.
so I think they will not continue to sell AIO goggles either.

I want to thank Guizmo12 for the excellent review, also good to have some expert to test a new equipment and give comment.
we decide to make a foam shade and also keep the rubber shade, the best thing of rubber shade is you don't get sweating heavily when wear it in summer and it also allow you to wear short sight glasses and AIO goggles at the same time
anyway, comfort is also a very important factor that we should consider
and we will try our best to make a near-perfect product

ok, let's put that on the list, what do we need else? how about some cool LEDs on it, so it should look like a chrismas tree at night, and you can be a very visible target during night fly

wow I understand better now why your headtracker is so good. You had made a very good job with the Foxtech goggle.
I was not knowing other goggle copy of your Foxtech was different, I will recommend to everyone to buy your goggle and not the copy, because we are not sure if the headtracker is good as your headtracker

My thumb up for your goggle !

For me, these goggles would have been perfect if there was an addition without the headtracker (don't use this function). perhaps a downgraded version is possible ?

anyway, it seems like a great product !

How about a version without the built in receivers? That would help reduce the cost to something more attractive.

different version FOXTECH AIO goggles

So far, we don't have a plan to make different version, however..hah, this should be good news to everyone, a wireless plug-one will be made for the AIO goggles to make it possible to control pan/tilt by its own. , Enjoy headtrack on JR radio and Car radios! have a model car race with headtracking should be very realistic

the wireless data radio to control the pan/tilt will be in a small box together with battery.
