Greetings!  I simply bought a cheap pair for about $12.00 from Amazon.  Just used the iPhone or similar held in front of the two lens.  The Litchi app has a FPV in stereo that gives a pretty good picture.  I am sure it is not as good as the ones using the HDMI setup but just to try that mode, these seem to work fine.  I have used them maybe 4 times total.  It is kinda scary not being able to watch the drone at the same time!  One could sure use someone else standing by to warn of problems because the ability to be exact on distances is not good.  
Good luck, enjoy.

Aloha Sprtbkrydr,

     The output for the P4 is 720p, like the P3 A&Ps.  Buying a goggle that handles 1080p like the $500 Glyph is a waste of money unless you plan to upgrade your Phantom at some point.  The P4 Pro puts out 1080p, so the Eachine Goggles Two priced at $140 is a seriously good deal when compared to the Glyph.

     For a 720p output, the HeadPlay HD at $250 was a really good goggle, but, I do not know if they make them anymore.  The best the Fat Shark goggles can put out is 800 X 600 and it is not even p although they do try to make you think it does.  Fat Shark goggles have terrible resolution but they have no lag time so it makes them great for racing, which is why they are popular.

     The 720p goggles, and Fat Sharks, have the benefit that you do not have to see clearly and so you do not have to wear glasses to use them.  But, if you should go the route of 1080p goggles, it is 20X20 vision and you will have to wear glasses to see correctly with whatever goggles you choose, if you use reading glasses.

     Please do realize that this is all new technology and new discoveries are made daily.  This is the latest I have learned.

Aloha and Drone On!

I have been mostly using the headplay goggles - they are great for photography, particularly when you are trying to frame that "perfect" shot.  I have also been experimenting with the inexpensive VR goggles using the Litchi app.  What intrigued me the most is feature that allows for head tracking, which in turns controls the camera gimbal  and aircraft movement.  It was awesome once in flight, but really hard to set up - particularly when trying to maneuver the phone into the goggles as the phone is always controlling the drone.

It depends what's your budget? I bought a cheap pair on Amazon for 19.00 and used my phone. It was great because using your phone gave me the ability to use head tracking. The only draw back was if I needed to make a call or get a call.
Then I bought The fat shark Dominators high dollar and there just ok to me. It will not do head tracking. So I prefer big screen and head tracking flying the P4.

It's true the glyph is expensive but the video quality is great.I believe it's 720p, but again the display is excellent. It's up to you what you're budget is.The other advantage of the glyph is that it has multiple uses.

Aloha fanscf,

     You are right, the Glyph is only 720p.  I thought for sure they were 1080p.  Who knows, the way things are going, they may end up being 1080p soon enough!

Since my forties I am farsighted (presbyopia, +1.5). I would love to find easy wearable glasses with HDMI input with + correction.
