In this post, I’ll show you my DIY FPV goggles. These obviously aren’t as good as proper FPV goggles but they are cheap, they work and I was able to make them out of things I already had at home.
I made these out of an old 5,8Ghz video receiver, a VR headset for smartphones, a USB video capture card and my smartphone.
The quality of the picture will be greatly dependent on the PPI(pixel density) of your smartphone’s screen it will essentially drop by half as you need to squeeze two images onto your screen. My phone has a PPI of a bit over 500 so the image that you see through the goggles is around 250 which isn’t that great.
The delay of the video is a bit more than 100ms which is not good enough for any high speed FPV flying but it’s good enough for just casually flying around.
