    i don't know of another company that makes goggled fpv kits. if you put one to gether, you end up using a monitor instead of goggles. i could be wrong, but i haven't found any.

    Only other goggles Ives seen are flytech here http://ttsn.net/wireless-all-in-one-vid ... s-for-fpv/ these are rebranded and sold under a few other brands around the world.

    Carbonbird in Australia

    I was looking at goggles but ended up going with the dji 5.8 tx rx setup and a 7 inch monitor with sun shade mounted on my radio. I may try goggles later on but if this darn rain ever stops I will get to do some more fpv flying with my new setup.

    Just found these, would be great image quality but costly

    Also wonder about the occulus rift once that is released if it would be possible for fpv.

    Search for "Virtual video goggles" on eBay. LOTs of options - just make sure you get one with AV input.

    Looks like FPV isn't the target market for these since they need input sources and resolutions current FPV transmitters don't have.
