Hi guys,

I am sure this is asked before, but after searching for it I came up short. I think I know the answer, but I want to make sure before I invest.

I have a Mavic 2 Zoom, and I won't be flying racing with it, just aerials and photography. I would like to try out a set of Goggles, but I want to make sure I get the right ones. From what I read, the DJI Goggles offer me basically anything I need, even OccuSync, and it has the same range as my controller - 7 km. It has more latency than the RE, but that seems to matter most for racing.

Am I correct in thinking that I can go for the cheaper DJI Goggles instead of the Goggles RE, and still get more or less the same experience from them? I know the latency is 50ms vs 110ms which sounds a lot, but for slow flying I guess it won't matter much. Anyone tested both and can offer some opinions?

Thanks!

Hello and good day aTOMic. Thank you for reaching out and for the inquiry. I hope that you will get the best recommendation from our valued DJI co pilot experiences in using the DJI Goggles and who owns the DJI Goggles. In addition the main difference between the DJI Goggles RE and the DJI goggles are as follows :

1. In addition to the 2.4GHz digital transmission band, the new DJI Goggles RE also supports the 5.8GHz band, which can avoid the usual interference on the more crowded 2.4GHz.

2. DJI Goggles RE has redesigned the internal linear polarized omnidirectional antennas and added new external Pagoda antenna, a 5.8GHz single-frequency omnidirectional left hand circularly polarized ( LHCP ) antenna.

3. DJI Goggles RE has restructured the radio communication strategy and video decoding algorithm to lower transmission latency to 50 ms* ( with wireless transmission latency of less than 10 ms ), ensuring smooth and reliable video transmission and avoiding video lag and disconnection from the digital video transmission system when operating in a normal environment.

4. DJI Goggles RE supports analog transmission at any integer frequency between 5.650~5.925 GHz and analog video storage on a Micro SD card.

5. DJI Goggles RE can store digital video on a Micro SD card.

6. DJI Goggles RE supports local video playback and Sphere pano viewing, allowing users to turn their head to get a 360° view of the Sphere pano.

7. The facial pad has been redesigned and the headband has used new replaceable leather materials to make it even more comfortable to wear.

*When tested with a 480p video feed.

For additional reference I will be posting a link where in you can find the overview, specifications and the frequently asked questions for the DJI Goggles. Thank you.

Thanks for your feedback Stephen.

One question though, the OccuSync, does that work on both 2.4GHz and 5.8GHz? I live in an area without much interference, so if the functionality is the same, I don't think 5.8GHz will give me any benefits?

Thanks!

You are very much welcome aTOMic. The DJI Mavic 2 Pro's OcuSync 2.0 allows the drone to switch between 2.4 GHz and 5.8 GHz automatically with stronger anti-interference capability. The maximum transmission distance reaches up to 8 km ( FCC, unobstructed, free of interference ) and HD 1080p video can be achieved. Thank you.

Here's a question. Is the low 50ms latency for on ocusync or just the 2.4 and 5.8 ghz band?

Hi aTOMic

I, like yourself, have a Mavic 2 Zoom.

I have purchased the earlier WHITE goggles to use with my M2 Z, but I have been surprised to discover some issues that you should be aware of...….

There are supposed to be 3 options of liveview (the linking method of how OCCUsync feed video to the goggles) these options are "HD" - "Smooth" & "Current" & all vary the latency time of the feed.

"Smooth" is intended to be the least latency, but it doesn't work for the Mavic 2 Zoom or Pro. - There are other posts on the forum which go into this point in more detail.

Also with the new Waypoints 2.0 feature, the gimbal head tracking feature of the goggles, doesn't function. This is extremely annoying as great video could be obtained if working, as it would allow you to focus on the exact images you want to capture, while executing a waypoint mission.

Perhaps, the DJI team, would like to comment on these points that I have highlighted to you, as they appear to have been very helpful regarding your requests to date.

I hope that this will help you, regarding your possible future purchase?

Oh - by the way, many M2 Z & Pro users are reporting video signal loss, with both the White & RC goggles at very short range lengths, certainly not the 7 - 8 Km quoted to you in earlier post - I cannot varifythis point, as I have yet to attempt any flights of distance, whilst familuarising myself with what i can actually do with the goggles & my M2 Z.

Did you get the RE goggles, and if so are they working?  DJI support, I am still having issues 1+ year into this. My Racing Edition goggles have limited distance 500-800 Feet when using my M2 Pro. They worked great at distance with original Mavic pro. I've been patiently waiting over a year for firmware fix, looks like that won't happen. This drone and goggles now useless to me unless there a fix. I greatly prefer the FPV for photography framing, don't care about high speed racing, just need functional at reasonable distance.   Is there a hardware fix available if I send them in?

I have to admit that my drone - as probably many others - have been left in the bag over the winter. There is a lot of wind where I live, and it's been ...ty weather, so there hasn't been any use for it. I have therefore not bought the goggles yet, but I am considering it for the summer.

However, with your feedback here it does not build confidence that it would work well for me, so I will have to read up more when we get closer.

Thanks for your feedback, and good luck with yours.
