Hi,
is it possible to use the controller and goggles from the DJI FPV combo with another drone not made by DJI?
I love the combo and the DJI FPV air unit is great, but I am thinking of using a smaller drone for practicing where a crash is not so costly… Would that work? Anyone tried this?
Thanks for your help!

Hi there. Thank you for reaching out. Unfortunately, the DJI FPV Controller and DJI FPV Goggles only work with the DJI FPV Drone and DJI Air unit. Thank you for your understanding and support!

... it's useable for the DJI Air unit too!

That's not the DJI FPV...

You can use the goggles (but not the controller) for any drone that has a DJI Air Unit or a Caddx Vista. Those drones often have an "HD" or "digital" in the name. I fly the GepRC Cinelog 25 HD and the Rekon 5 digital with those goggles.

Thanks for clarification, frankymusik. I meant the FPV drone...

And thank you very much for the info, Depp. So I could only use the goggles with any other drone but would need another controller? Maybe I'll go for that one day... Could I then use the controller with the FPV drone?

How about using of analog modules like URUAV 5.8G RX PORT 3.0-PLUS? Will it work with these goggles from combo?

I use the British Drone Industries analog conversion and it works no issues. Just replace the faceplate and plug it in, switch to the analog module, alter the zoom level and away you go. Image quality is also better than most analog goggles too. Just a bit more cumbersome and more wires dangling off the goggles.

Just ordered one, so see how things go.
Felt funny spending so much money.
Hope it's worth it.
Good to know the goggles will work with other drones.

You buy the DJI FPV black controller V1 or V2. You can then fly the Flywoo micro and nano drones With the Controller and the Goggles. And any aircraft you build with the DJI or Caddx  Vista air unit.

Thank you.Many shops in US don't know controller works. I have V2 I guess. It's the fpv drone.

You will needs to set the goggles to DJI FPV air unit mode. Yours are V2 Goggles. They work for both the DJI FPV drone and the DJI air units. But you have to swicth modes in the goggles.

Then you can use the DJI Air units with the correct Controller. Your FPV controllers will not work with the air units.

Here is the link to the DJI Site for the FPV System. Only your goggles are compatible. You will need the controller and the Air unit. Or buy a FPV Drone or Wing with the Cadx or DJI air system. Or build one yourself.

What serial protocol does the air units use?  Is it Futaba S-bus?

I just watched this video on the drone you mentioned and he seems to be using both the controller and the goggles.

This is the DJI controller that comes with their own FPV quad: dji-fpv-remote-australia-mantisfpv.jpg
You can NOT use it with the Vista or the old DJI Air Unit.

This is their older controller that can be used with the Vista/Air unit, but not with their own FPV quad:

And that's the one Steve used in the video you embedded.

Are there any plans to make the DJI FPV's Remote Controller (the white one) to work with Air Units?  I have the DJI FPV drone and I plan to build my own custom FPV drone w/ Air Unit but don't want to buy another remote controller.

"DJI FPV's Remote Controller (the white one) "

Do you mean the gray one?

The only remote which will communicate directly (wirelessly) to an Air Unit is the black controller pictured above.

Receivers for other radio systems can be very small and inexpensive. A lot of people use an EdgeTX compatible radio with their Air Units and Caddx Vista devices. Currently the RadioMaster TX16S appears to be one of the favorite controllers used by people flying FPV.

So if an FPV drone has the DJI Air Unit or a Caddx Vista, is it controllable with the (Black) DJI Controller?
