When We Talk UAV have published the DJI Goggles review, we got a bunch of fans asking us to compare it with Fatshark goggles. So here we are today, bringing you a comparison between DJI Goggles vs Fatshark HD3.

We know that those 2 products are pretty different, but when it comes to buying goggles and spending that amount of money, DJI goggles and Fatshark HD3 are two models that most people will be considering. So, no more talking. let’s get started:

Built Quality

If you are familiar with DJI products, you probably already know that they are offering a superior built quality in all their products. Goggles are not an exclusion, they look class, clean and very well-built. Plastic doesn’t feel flimsy in any way, all the gaps are even, internal rubber material feels soft and kind of like high-class medical equipment… very pleasant to touch.

Fatshark HD3 designers spent rather less time thinking about how it looks and put more efforts on the thing that matters the most: functionality. It feels a little bit more plasticky though. But the worst part is that you have to put the battery next to one of your ears, so it presses the ear and makes it quite uncomfortable. Other than that Fatshark feels pretty solid.DJI goggles vs Fatshark HD3

Comfort

DJI Goggles are very soft and comfortable, the materials are very nice to touch. You can flip up the screen if you need to look at the remote controller which is very useful. However, the biggest con of the DJI Goggles is that it very bulky and pretty heavy. It’s 3 times as big as the Fatshark HD3 and weigh 1 kilogram, while the Fatshark a lot less “fat” and weighs only 180 g. Yes, the Goggles weight is very well-distributed, but it’s still 5 times heavier than FS.

Screen Size

The resolution of the Fatshark HD3 is 800×600 when using SVGA and 720p while using HDMI. DJI Goggles is offering a 1080p resolution real-time transmission at 30fps and 720p streaming at 720p. The color representation on DJI goggles looks slightly better, but what really makes the difference is the screen size difference. As you can see on the picture DJI Goggles are that bulky for a reason, as it gives you almost 4 times bigger screen and twice wider FOV than HD3.

Features

This is the part where the DJI Goggles vs Fatshark HD3 feel unfair. DJI goggles have so many different features such as trackpad, DJI GO inside of it, gimbal control, fixed wing mode and more. Fatshark HD3 is just a couple of screens attached to your head that mostly just show you the video from the transmitter and… that is it. The best thing about Fatshark is that you can connect it to the 3rd party transmitters used in drone racing and get the analog signal with literally 0 delay. That is why Fatshark became a #1 choice for the drone racing.

Price

DJI Goggles is coming for $449 and Fatshark HD3 for $499. The price may vary depending on the location and dealer.
