What Fatshark product you are referring to? I couldn’t find any digital HD video link from their web pages.

I'll get one when it comes out. Much better than the first ridiculous version they had BUT if it's always in beta form then plan on bad reviews. From what I see so far.. the FOV is big but perfect for those of us that have the HD3, or SE fatsharks. The controller is a decent size but I hope you can buy ends for us thumbers. It's smaller and the weight is good for 4 or 5 inch quads especially considering that you are trading out the camera,VTX,Reciever, antennas and possibly a Runcam split or caddx turtle. The goggles simply look bad ass as the mavic does. To me the price is right as you get a decent controller,VTX,HD camera,hemet with HD reciever,antennas... if you think about the price of a Rapidfire RX module $150 then fatshark HDOs $500, then QX7 or Xlite $100-160. Then a crossfire RX module and receiver $200 depending on what one Then good camera $19-30 or Runcam split or Caddx Turtle $80.. this is a good deal...

I wonder if you have to solder this to the FC or if you can just power it directly to the battery leads on the board.

I like to be able to move my cameras between aircraft, especially one that costs 40 times more than any camera in my inventory . I can't tell if this is basically a AIO setup or if it's more like a Runcam Swift, Caddx, etc.

The 'regional locking' is handled via an 'Activation Process', which requires creating an account on DJI's servers, connecting to the internet, and activating the goggles/air unit/transmitter.
Before doing this, the gear is locked onto CH8 (5843MHz) at 25mW.
Does this mean that EU/AUS users can use a VPN to bypass the geolocation stuff and enable 'FCC mode'?
There's the DJI I know.

I don't particularly want to hand my details to DJI to use a product I bought.

oh snap. these are looking like winners. definitely won't be able to do all my quads, but I'll give it a shot on a few. anyone have any codes for dji's site, or any others where this is available for purchase?

(posted on the other rcgroups thread for this, since we have so many. looks like this is the one i want to be subbed to...)

A major NOGO. Why should i pay 1 kilobucks for 25mw instead of the 1W version?
DJI is known to lack the good sense of making workarounds easy as the chinese normally do.

This thing will require a ground station.

keep holding your breath because at the rate that fatshark innovates it will take them 3 years to catch up

sounds good. they will have these FS in reviewers hands in couple weeks, per FS. For me, I'll hold off until I get all the details. DJI FPV system has set a high bar, so we'll see. With HDO's already and multiple quads, LR, 5", 3", etc, it would be nice to be able to simply use my FS HDO's with my crossfire system since I've already invested quite a bit in those items. In the end, may end up with DJI's system, but I'll hold off for the competitors
