Rvision-D Goggles good or bad?

Recommended Posts

Hi all! I am new to the forum though I have been lurking and reading lots.

I have been flying RC for a while now and am now getting into the FPV side.

I have bought Future Hobbies 500mw 900mhz system and Range video's Rvision-D Goggles. I am using a spektrum Dx7 for my TX.

I read all I could about the Rvision goggles on this forum and it seems most people are quite happy with them. I only plan to use them for FPV so the resolution of them being 640X40 is more than enough cause composite does not even go that high anyway I belive.

I was wondering if anyone else has had any good or bad experiance witht the Rvision-D glasses lately? I know there have been some bad posts about their old glasses but how have the new ones fared?

Jut hoping I have made the right decision here!!!

Any and all opinions greatly appreciated.

Thanks all.

Steve

I had the old Rvisions. They died after 15 minutes. I traded up to the new Rvision, and they are ok so far. A lot of chromatic aberations so there are red and purple halos around white object. I met with a friend to do some FPV flying and he had the HeadPlay goggles. THEY ROCK! If I had to do it again, I would go with HeadPlay.

Thanks Dalbert, I hope to get them this week. I can't afford the head play ones as of yet but maybe later.

If anyone is interested I can post info on these when I get them. Or you can PM me.

What's the difference between them. And are you talking about the RV-545's or are they different?

TwinT that seems right to me..... Mine have been held up in customs for a while now.

If you have any questions I would be happy to answer them when the glasses get here.

I use the 545's, and thusfar they've seen more than a mere 15-minutes of use :D

Cheers,

Sander.

ok so anyone who is intersted I have the Rvision D goggles... seems ok so far but is there any known issues that I can pre-emptively deal with?

Like the plug from the power source / video source to the glasses.... is this a weak point? OR are the arms bending back and forth a weak point?

I hope to get my kx 171 this week and it will be time for my first FPV flight....

I could post this questions elsewhere but I am sure someone here can answer it.

I need to run my camera and transmitter of my main battery pack.... are there any issues with this besides the obvious that after I hit throttle cut I can drain the lipo to nothing?

Hi there. My R-visions are still going!

Pre-emptively - if they come with the velcro strap for the plug (controller->specs), use it! If not, knock one up! This plug is vulnerable:

- to breaking in two due to forces from the side (not terminal, just superglue it back together) - an argument for unplugging in between use.

- to unplugging if you turn your head suddenly. Lost a FPV EZ* over a cliff due to this this summer (anyone want to see the vid???) - an argument for fixing in place!

A little velcro loop, split in the middle, can effectively cushion & holds the plug in place.

Overall, I wish they came with a fixed-in cable... which was about 50cm longer... anyone tried extending theirs?

Of course they are also vulnerable to unplugging anywhere in the 'chain' - tape/velcro all plugs in place. Otherwise, a cable looped/snagged somewhere & move your head too much, 'Pop!' you're blind.

excellent advice Doofer thanks!

I was thinking of putting a dab of hot glue on the side of the plug so it it kinda permenant and then creating a semi permenant "hat" like some have on here.

I would like to see the video of the lost plane for sure!
