Hopefully I'm missing something simple.  In several reviews of the FPV V2 goggles, it was stated that the new goggles would support USB-C video output to a smartphone or tablet.  Most specifically, Joshua Bardwell's youtube post with the title "DJI FPV goggle V2 your top questions answered!", specifically states that you would be able to pipe video to your phone over USB-C.  That did it for me.  That sealed the deal and I bought it.

Fast forward to unboxing...oh this is so awesome!  Then insert trombone wah-wah-waaah sound effect...no mention of USB-C out to your phone.  No mention of hooking it to a DJI app on your phone.  No anything regarding video out from the goggles.  


Can anyone answer, was that misinformation?  Or is it something that will be coming out in an update after the dust settles from the V2 goggle and drone release?  Or am I completely missing something very simple?

The usb-c video out is only available with the drone. Download the DJI fly app en then plug the OTG cable from the goggle to the phone.

Ok, so confirm:

DJI V2 goggles connected via USB-C to a smartphone running the DJI Fly app while the signal is coming from the DJI drone = ability to see video.
DJI V2 goggles connected via USB-C to a smartphone running the DJI Fly app while the signal is coming from a DJI air unit = nothing, you got duped, go purchase the DJI drone.

Is that valid?

Ok, so confirmed, misinformation.  You can connect your goggles to the DJI Fly app over USB-C, but you need the DJI drone connected to get video.  If you're a mainstream FPV pilot who bought the goggles based on the misinformation that you could get video out over USB-C, you've been had.  

Video-out has been brought up many many times in many forum posts, with responses from DJI to the tune of "thanks for the input, that's a GREAT idea, we'll take that into consideration..."  

Do some digging...the V2 goggles (and V1 for that matter) have the capability of transmitting video over USB-C to an Android or Apple device.  The hardware is there.  The communication protocol from the goggles to a smart device has been developed.  The apps are there - it's on full display now IF you have the DJI drone.  

This really galvanizes the impression of a $$$ hungry monopoly whose ultimate response is "we are well aware of the fact that many you want that feature, and you bought SOME of our stuff, but you have not bought ENOUGH of our stuff...buy the $749 smart controller or the $1299 FPV drone if you want a video output.  There is no competition, we know you have nowhere else to go, take it or leave it."

DJI:  We're using your products.  We're using your goggles.  We're using your air units.  It's not like we're buying knock-off DJI goggles and air units from aliexpress and cashing in on your hard work.  You are aware it's a highly desired feature, you have proven you can do it, and you are actively restricting the functionality to those that have crossed your spending threshold.  Well played from a business standpoint, only in a monopoly could you pull off such a bold move!

So you bought a product based on an unconfirmed rumor? Not sure how that is anyone's fault but yours. There is a mention on the official website of that feature, but it's marked with a little number 11 and in the footer under 11 it says: "This function will be available in a future firmware update. Transmitted images from the goggles to the app can be sent to a smartphone via cable (USB-C to USB-C or USB-C to lightning)."

So that doesn't leave out the option that it would work with Ait Units/Vistas (there is no technical reason why it couldn't), but let's maybe wait for DJI to confirm or deny any of that before rushing out to upgrade?

I think its time to reverse engineer the source code, memory injection, exploit and open the code wide open. Educational Purposes seems reasonable.

I have an android and iphone and yes I have 2 phones lol, both have the app on the andriod it did nothing but using the iphone works so people can see your flight real time. Just use the cable from your iphone and use dji attachment cable for the goggles.

Heating up a pizza in the microwave is more difficult than attaching your iphone to your goggles...
