FXT Viper best beginner goggles



This is the FXT Viper FPV Video goggles which is perfect for wearers of glasses. At the front is the LCD 5 inch monitor and at the back is a silicone cover which is removable.
Only one LiPo battery is needed and you're ready to go. Incidentally, the good LCD monitor can be used without the goggles.
In the goggles are two mirrors that bring the picture over a longer distance to the eyes. Thus, the goggles are quite compact and yet I can see the picture sharp with my licked eyes without reading glasses. Included are two simple linear antennas and an adapter with XT60 connector for connecting a 2 to 5S Lipo.
What I like very much, that the sun visor of the goggles is removable and so you can perceive the environment left and right and still look on the monitor. Just great as a monitor in front of the eyes and you see the environment. The monitor only shows the video in 16 : 9 aspect ratio, which may be adjustable to 4 to 3 in the future, Hey FXT support please add 4:3 aspect ratio. PAL or NTSC format is detected automatically. Via the auto search function you can find the video signal from the quadcopter, and you can save the frequency on the left. Above the DVR button, a video recording is started and with a long press you get to the video player via which you can watch the recorded video from the 32 GB SD card. This is the first LCD monitor that is perfect all round. I can use my glasses, it is very good to wear, delivers perfect FPV video and the monitor's response is very good. Only the antennas need to be replaced.

I have tested the Version 1.0

Now you can get the new FXT Viper Version 2.0 with switchable aspect ratio 16:9 and 4:3 and DVR recording with 10min instead 3min.

Hi Kopterheld. Thanks for your review of FXT Viper. As for 16 : 9 aspect ratio, we will adjust to 4 to 3 soon. Please focus on our official website: http://www.szfxt.com.

What's the brightness specs of the monitor? To use without the sun visor I would be concerned about the picture getting washed out.

Nice bright screen then. I ordered one to try. I'm really hoping these work for me. I have FS Transformers that are good, but heavy and sweaty on my face. I like the idea of using them w/o the sunshade and the bright screen will help in the day light.

Good value for first-time FPV


I purchased the v2 updated version of these goggles for my initial dive into this FPV hobby (NewBeeDrone Acrobee is my only drone) and I'm very pleased with them so far. I'm primarily flying indoors with only a few outdoor flights in the sun. I don't use the face plate because I crash a lot... no need to remove goggles with face shield off when searching for drone! So far I've probably worn them for up to 30-minutes per session. Other reviews say the default antennas are bad but is there any other option for dipole? My tinywhoop only has dipole VTX, any advice appreciated.

Hi kopterheld00,
I'm using the two Bandicoot Antennas 5.8Ghz Linear Receiver Patch for my DYS Elf FPV quadcopter that have a linear antenna, the video transmission range is up to 40% better.
The Bandidos antenna received the signnal in a size of 150 degrees. If you use two Bandidos antennas so you can received a good signal over 220 degrees.
But behind your is the signal bad.

here a video from Painless360
MenaceRC Bandicoot Linear Patch FPV Antenna (7 min 9 sec)


good flight,
Kopterheld
