My review, and thoughts on Makerfire's VR007 mini fpv goggles:

I ordered the "Makerfire VR007 mini fpv goggles" off of Amazon.com about a mouth ago. I just started getting into fpv first getting the "Blade Inductrix Fpv Hd" to see if I even liked it, (Discontinued by Horizon Hobby, but can still be found online and at hobby shops) I paid $60 for it and I seemed to enjoy flying fpv! So I'm like heck, I'm going to get fpv goggles for my rc planes, when I saw the prices of Fatshark goggles and other brands, it took me off guard. Now I know a lot of people say that Fatsharks are totally worth it, and "Once a Fatshark guy, always a Fatshark guy." But as some of you other guys are, we have a tight budget, and are not willing to drop 200-600 some dollars on goggles.

I found these goggles on Amazon for $45, and I looked at reviews for it and lots of reviewers were impressed, the only complaint being "too small". Some of the reviewers were even Fatshark guys and thought they were great, so I decided I'd try 'em out for $45. I bought the goggles, a "Wolfwhoop" fpv camera ($18), and Makerfire Fpv antennas ($12). Comes in the mail and right after opening it I knew exactly what they ment by small. But wow after watching videos of Fatshark goggles, this is about almost as, or just as clear! It's not very immersive but they are definitely flyable with, the stock antennas work "ok" but the upgrade I did with the other antennas work great, I can fly as far as my transmitter can!!! (With a Dx4e and Dxe)

All in all, I'm happy with my purchase. I would recommend to anyone getting into fpv with a budget! I'd give the goggles about 4 stars, the reason from five is the size of the goggles themselves making it not entirely immersive, and second being the plastic it's made of is shiny and a bit reflective, while the goggles are on it reflects light from the screen. Another thumbs up though, it has a Av in/out plug with cords, it's meant to hook up a monitor to, or a digital recorder. But I've hooked it up to a Wii and an old Nintendo and played stuff in it, lol. Great Product!!!

Any questions I'll try to answer.

Here are some pics; the case is included and is good quality, you can see the stock antennas, and then the new ones(The patch, and omnidirectional). One of my favorite features is the "Search" function; you press it and it will automatically search for the channel with the best signal. My pics are not good resolution but you can see the screen is fairly clear (I used a hat to show detail). The pic of the screen (without clicking on it) is about as clear it really is.

If you are going to buy these goggles, get the upgrade antennas!

I have a ten-year-old grandson who has shown interest learning to fly fpv. Do you think the smaller size would make for a better fit for him than the typical adult sized versions? Not into it myself but the price is right for an intro set!

Yes, I think it would be a great fit on a someone around his age. I put a link at the bottom for the antennas I bought for mine which greatly reduced static and increased range. They are a bit pricier now than when I bought them, but just as an idea. I can also recommend a good beginner camera that is a 3-in-1 so it will have; The camera, transmitter, and antenna for a good price. You will also need a 1s battery with a compatible plug as a note too.

They make 3d printed cases for it since it is bare, It is what I used for my first fpv camera and it works great indoor and out. Be careful with it though because it's battery plug can be pulled out from the board, which I unfortunately did a couple weeks ago. (Board is too small to try and fix it)

Here are the links on Amazon:
