    I was over at DPReview and saw a story on their front page about Epsons' new BT-300 FPV glasses...looks like they worked with DJI on the design to make sure they work well with the go app.
    They look very interesting....actually very small size and unlike most FPV googles I have seen they are actually see through glasses with a heads up display that shows the DJI app as if you were looking at your tablet.
    I'm very excited at the thought of using these. Looks like they would be the ideal way to fly.

    We will have to see how do they fair in bright day light and how does the background looks with the video image.

    Do we get immersive experience?

    Video looks very confusing with two backgrounds overlapped.

    Yea, I agree.
    The epsons come with darker clip on sunshades which I would guess would clear that up.

    I would think that the "in person experience" would be a little different than what the video captures. Somewhat analogous to other displays of a similar nature (like in a car with heads up display of speed, etc), you focus on one aspect or the other with your eyes, not both simultaneously.

    But.....I really don't know. Love to see these in person - if anyone comes across any updates on availability or further reviews, hope you post it!

    I am waiting on either these or the new Fatshark Dominator HD V3, which are rumoured to be out soon as well.


    Cheers
