In FPV Posted by Mark Spencer Nov. 06, 2013
Most will agree that FPV is all about immersion and there is no better immersion than with FPV goggles. When talking about FPV goggles, FatShark is first choice of many FPV pilots.
There are several different Headsets offered by FatShark and one of those are FatShark AttitudeSD. But how does it compare to the others?
FatShark AttitudeSD package comes with the Headset, zipper case, 250mW TX w/bat lead, 2p 3dBi antenna, AV cable, Futaba data cable, ezUHF data cable and lens cloth.
Shape of the goggles resembles FatShark BASE but these are coated with rubber compared to the BASE glossy finish.
FatShark AttitudeSD unlike other FatShark goggles come with built-in MIG V5 agnetic, inertial and gyro sensors head tracker and FatShark 5.8Ghz receiver with high-pass filtering operating at the following frequency channels:
Important thing to have in mind is that these receivers and transmitters are not compatible with most of the 5.8Ghz equipment on the market, only FatShark and ImmersionRC.
Goggles feature same respectable 35 degree field of as BASE edition which is slightly larger than 30 degrees Dominators have. This together with non-glass optics resulting in slightly blury picture on edges but better immersion.
Same backlight technology is used as in Dominator. Other features worth mentioning are adjustable IPD (InterPupillary Distance) and rubber eye-cups.
