    Hi I am new to the DJI Phantom 4 Prof and have bought some fpv goggles to use with it. The goggles have loads of settings to receive video pics but non pick up the output direct from the drones Camera. The Goggles do have video in ports so wondered if i need something else to get them to work.???
    Anyone out there able to help???
    Cheers
    Colin

    Install the DJI module to your controller and your on your way. I did it in Ten minutes and got a pair of Avegant Glyph glasses. Love it.

    msinger, in your opinion, which fpv goggles are the best relative to 1) performance, 2) value, and 3) easy to use.?

    After trying most of the commonly used FPV goggles, I can tell you none of them are perfect. I'd recommend you choose based on the features that'll best fit you (rather than choosing by price/value). Currently, the Avegant Glyph headset is the best option for me.

    I agree with Craig, with the glyphs you can see above the goggles to keep a line of sight and below the goggles to use the controller.

    I have never used a FPV VR goggle. I have a P4P and was wondering the FPV goggles that hold an iPhone (7 plus) is any good visually ?
    What features should I look for in such a goggle ? Any list for them ?
    Thanks.

    OK you guys I have fitted a HDMI port to my remote but still have no output to my glasses F640 5.8G Wireless FPV Goggles 62" LCD Screen Display HD Video Glasses. They are advertised on Ebay as being compatible with drones, and actually show a picture of my drone on the advertisement. Contacted the seller but all they say is refer to the drone instructions. No help at all. So how do i get a connection that will work or have i not set up my RC to transmit pics???
    Cheers

    You have to use an HDMI cable to connect the Hdmi port from the module you just installed on transmitter to hdmi input port on goggles. Also there's a setting in Go app to have video output on both tablet/phone and Hdmi output port

    Tried to get a HDMI cable to connect the glasses but the inlet port on the glasses is an RF inlet port that is like a four stage 2m Jack plug. Went to Maplin and the local TV shop but no luck

    I would think it would have to be a hdmi on both ends, I had to get a cable that was mini on one end and micro to the goggles
