Guys just looking for a couple of answers regarding DJI Goggles, received my goggles yesterday charged them up connected to Assistant 2 and did firmware upgrade and went out to test, the image quality is excellent though I noticed in the top left a message pop up with "Maximum Flight Distance" or something along those lines, I did not have my phone connected so was not using the DJI Go App. I brought the drone back and tried again same warning, the distance travelled is only maybe 30 meters approx,

Brought the Mavic back and landed connected the phone, I thought I had maybe enabled beginner mode by accident in the app but it was turned off, changed the battery and distance flown was much further seemed ok

Has anyone else had a similar issue, also what range would I get live view distance?

You now need to have your phone connected at all times when flying if you want to use maximum distance. Fly without it, and you'll be limited, it has nothing to do with your goggles.

That would make sense, do you know the maximum flight distance while wearing the goggles

The maximum flight distance has nothing to do with the goggles, the goggles are just a viewing device with some control, distance is dictated by your RC only.
But that being said, I did a 4km flight the other day and had decent vision with the goggles.

OK thanks again 4km is about 2.5 miles that's decent range wonder how much further you could have gone, wonder if you could have pushed it to 6 or even 8 KM

By the time I got to that distance, I received a return to home warning, and given the terrain I was over, I wasn't going to ignore it.

Goggle max range = Aircraft max range. That is 7km for Mavic Pro.

4.34 Miles think that will be out of LOS but still good to know in perfect conditions the maximum range

I have not got a pair of Goggles myself. I think the ideal way to test for the range is by going on top of some hill and launch it from the peak. In good day I think it can go that 7km that they claimed but the battery life will be the bottleneck.

LOS doesn't always literally mean you has to actually have sight of the drone. LOS in this situation is having nothing between you and the drone.

Ridiculous! One of the selling points is that I wouldn't have to fumble setting up the phone with the system.  The app is buggy and crashes all the time.   Very disappointed with DJI products and service at this point.  They don't even support standard units of measurement when you set it in the menu.

The range of the goggles is the same range as the range for your controller as the goggles dont connect to the drone its self but the controller

I use my goggles with my Phantom 4 Pro and I also got a maximum flight distance reached warning (30m). I read above that you need to have your phone connected in order to lift this 30m flight distance limit, However how do I connect the phone when the goggles are already connected to the flight controller?

You connect the phone/tablet first, launch the Go App get it to go fly, which lifts your distance/flight restrictions and set the limits to whatever you have got setup through the phone/tablet app and then remove the phone and plug the goggles.

Many write about glasses .... Is it comfortable to fly, having them on the nose :?
I already burned on the VR Box helmet and strongly doubt it.

Hi i have the  same issue, i have the P4pro PLUS . I know that is not full compatible. I will try to change the  plug in procedure so that i  put  on the googels as last step. I think also that i put only  the HDMI Cabel on it and have full controll over the Display in the controller. If goggels is plugend in, i cannot fokus or change Camera settings . Its only working in the googels Menu. (it make sense) I think if i fly with the p4proPlus i will only use it as FPV. If i fly with Inspire2 i will work with full settings. Now its raining in Germany so i cannot fly...

If you fly on a no wind day at 30 mph, you can go out over 4 miles and make it back.  Seems like 30 mph gives best range.  It's what you will get for speed if you stay in P mode but turn off forward obstacle avoidance.  I got out 4.28 miles at 300 feet before I started to loose video feed.  Back on the ground at my home point with 18 % battery.

i got the same issue and I do the same solution by connecting the goggles after the max alt and distance was lifted.  Is there any other way to disconnect the phone/ipod then connect the goggles?

Is the head tracking really don't work in P4?  If yes, how?  

Thanks for your inputs...

Please note that the first time you connect Goggles to Mavic Proc, the Distance Limit automatically turns on. If you turn it off, you can fly without restrictions.
