Im still learning about the sport but I wanted to know how was the VTX connection made to the Fatsharks and other goggles used. Can I use the  HDMI input in the DJI Goggles?
I want to slowly get into this world and I could use these goggles with both the mavic and other quads

I guess as long as you have HDMI connection you would be able to use it. I use FATSHARK with the P4 series. The MAIVC will connect thru WIfi with the DJI Goggels. I don't know if the DJI goggles WIFI system will allow you to ocnnect to other devices thru WIFI. Interesting question!

To use the DJI googles with a racer you'll need a 5.8ghz to HDMI box, then just plug it in. DJI goggles can accept any hdmi input.

However, before getting any goggles I really would suggest trying out as many as you can. It's not always the quality that's important. Some people have different eye spacing, eye defects that some goggles can correct, etc. Slight out of alignment can cause dizziness and feeling sick, especially with the racers. My first fatshark attitudes made me horribly ill after just a few minutes, fatshark dom I only wobble when going upside down.

Everyone is different when it comes to goggles, you'll need to find yours otherwise it's not an enjoyable experience.

Goggles will sync to Mavic thru Occusync, not wifi. I dont think it will connect wirelessly to devices other than Mavic and (soon) Spark. Even I2 and P4P dont use occusync so you need a cable from RC to Goggles.
My question was regarding the HDMI input, If I would be able to plug the video receiver from the racer. It was answered below.
Thanks!

Thanks! will look into that.
Regarding your suggestion, I understand but I specifically want the DJI Goggles because of its compatibility with Mavic and its smart flight modes, so there are not many other options. Perhaps if I get into the hobby then I will buy some goggles just for that.

There are ways to get the video from a race quad into the Dji goggles but the latency will be too much to deal with .  You would have a difficult time flying without running into things as the video will lag behind where the drone is . Race drones use SD video cameras and VTX  with the receiver built into the fatshark goggles to minimize lag and would look like crap on the bigger screen anyway  . The only way to do it correctly is with the newer HD systems that transmit in 720p via HDMI but they are pricey at the moment . Take a look at the Connex system below if truly interested .

or the 1080p version

Connex also sells a complete FPV racer with the system built in ..........

So, what did you decide and how did it go. I have the same problem. Trying to get into drones but want to use the same goggles for both mavic and racing drone since the goggles are expensive. Do you think it is worth it to try with dji goggles?
