    What kind of inputs you are looking for: HDMI or USB?

    Tell us which all models you have evaluated and which you like best and why?

    I found VR Box is a pretty good choice. Check out Headset Considerations section in FPV Goggles

    I've only been able to read about them and try to find unbiased reviews.

    Oculus rift

    https://www.oculus.com/en-us/

    , which does not require my smart phone, but costs as much as one, lol. $600 available march with pre-order.

    Divine Viewer
    New VR Device Called Divine Viewer Review | Net Inventory
    $65 and seems very nice for that price. I like the fact that it can extend away from your face and it can utilize augmented VR

    Merge VR
    Merge Virtual Reality
    $99 made of foam so must be light and comfortable. also has window to use augmented VR

    Zeiss VR One which doesn't fit iphone 6+

    if you look here, Compare Virtual Reality Headsets for iPhone , you'll see just how many are out there

    reviews vary, so thats why i'm asking for firsthand knowledge with reasons to back up recommendation.

    'saw the replica, VR Box, for $20+ but not sure if it has head tracker like Hootoo...
    Does the FPV App have recording feature? And can you use the hard buttons on the TX?

    The head track is standard within the FPV Camera app. The goggles are really just housing for your phone. The phones accelerometer handles the tilt tracking. You can use buttons and the wheel on the tx for menu settings.

    The VR box seems to be an exact clone of the HooToo - if not the exact model with different branding. Seems like a good option

    The VR Box, HooToo, and all the knockoffs are just different varieties of plastic boxes. Any head tracking is a function of the app and mobile device.

    Yes, you can use the hard buttons on the controller to control the camera. Exact functions depend on the app.
