Eachine EV800 5 Inches 800×480 FPV Goggles Review
we’re going to go over the Eachine EV800 FPV Goggle monitors. Open them up. You’ve got your manual, some foam padding, a little lens clothe, and here we have- We have the headphone adaptor, goes from the smaller headphones to the larger. Then you have, looks like a battery adapter/charge lead here.
You’ve got a USB cord and this is a USB charger. So you’ve got your wall charger, USB there, bigger antenna, and then inside here, they actually did give you a little bag for your goggles. And then, you’ve got the goggles themselves. And, they split into two. So, there’s your monitor, and there’s your magnifier, faceplate. So now, let’s take a look at the screen. You’ll notice in the top left corner, it shows which channel and band you’re on. So now, simply by looking at the screen, you can tell exactly what channel you’re on. Next, by hitting the menu button, it’s going to bring up the options screen for the video. You have contrast, color, sharpness, volume, power on or off, and language. When you’re done, put down to the ‘Exit’ or hit the menu button again. Okay, these goggles actually turn into an FPV monitor. And how you do this is kind of a tight fit so it doesn’t come off. But what you do is you want to slide the front part up.
To get it back on, you start high and you just push down low. So again, you take the goggles and you push the front part up. And now, you have a standalone FPV monitor. Okay, once you have the standalone monitor, what’s pretty cool is there’s a tripod slot in the bottom. It’s a little threaded nut there in the bottom. So, you actually can take this and thread it onto a tripod for you FPV station.
Okay, battery. This has a built-in 3.7v 2000mAh battery, which according to the manufacturer, will only give you about hours of flight time or working time. I wouldn’t personally run it that long on one charge, but the cool thing is it’s got a- you’ve got a 5v input right here. It obviously uses the connector that comes with it. It has the JST1 and your wall charger. While you’re out in the field, you don’t have a wall charger, you can take like a cell phone battery backup to recharge your cellphones for the USB port, you plug it in there, then you can plug it in there. So you can get one of those 10,000mAh power banks and you have flying for a long time. 5 times the amount. Also, if you have like a litho battery, in your bag or anything like that, with a little JST connector, or you can change it to [indecipherable] even, but it can take a 2 cell or 3 cell battery input here.
It has a voltage regulator to knock it down to 5v inside. So cool. So, you could basically have unlimited- you have your backup battery after the internal one, if it does wear out, you can actually switch it over to onboard power or the external battery. If you’re doing FPV for hours, and need another 10,000mAh, that’s a crazy day for you. Alright, we get a lot of questions if these work with Fat Shark, or Spectrum, or Blade, so we’re going to turn on the screen right here. And while I do that, Will’s going to power up the FPV Radian. And what we’re going to see here, we’re going to see- I believe we’re on a different channel- So, search button. Hold it. It’s going to auto-search. And Fat Shark, I believe, should be D.
So, you might have to push it- there we go. So as you can see, there’s your Fat Shark. We’re going to do a video of a video so you can see the plane is moving. So, that worked with the Radian. Now, we’re going to do the Blade. Alright, now we’re probably on a different channel here, so turn on auto-search again. And, it picked it up pretty quickly.
Bottom line, it works with the Blade, and it works with the Spectrum FPV. It’s a 40 channel, so it has pretty much all of the bands. I really like the goggle idea because one, if you’re starting out in FPV, you’re not quite ready to put the goggles on and go fly without it. You’re nervous. And you start the line of sight flying kind of thing. This give you the ability to take the goggles, split it open, and you can mount it to your transmitter or somewhere to where you can watch it and still look up at the quad for reference, line of sight.
It’s a really, really nice little feature. I actually really like this for setting up at the house, if I’m setting up my OSD a lot of the times. Instead of flopping the goggles on and off, just makes it a little easier. That’ll be a pain in the neck with the goggles. Because now I can look up, I can do whatever, I can touch the quad, I can look at the screen. So, you can do some line of sight flying and then look at the goggles, adjust the PIDs real quick, then go back at it. These goggles actually only weight ounces and are very light on your head, and face.
And I can see wearing these all day long. They’re, I’d say, about 325 grams. The resolution on these is going to be 800×480. It’s actually better than the Dominator V2 goggles. The Dominator V2 is actually 640×480, where these are going to be 800×480. Last feature we’re going to touch on is the headphone jack. It’s 2.5, I believe, headphone jack. And it does come with the adaptor to go to your standard, I think it’s 3.5mm headphones. So, why do we want to hear the buzzing sound, the annoying sound on a quad? Well, the quads are kind of noisy, but if you have a plane or a quad that you’re flying around or something- if you’re flying pretty far away and you can’t hear the buzzer going.
Or sometimes it’s good you can actually hear if something’s gone wrong with your quad or anything while you’re flying around. If you’re flying around other people, it kind of gives you more distinct, you can drown out everyone else and hear yourself. Fit’s good! It’s comfortable. So, there you have it.
Very good fpv goggles!!!
Really good and cheap fpv goggles. Clear image during flight. There is a comfortable sponge as upgrade on this version. As modification i changed the stock linear antenna with a mushroom antenna. But the original configuration is good too. Really happy!!! Recommended!!
Very nice goggles. Not as bulky as i thought they would be. Great picture quality, even has a headphone jack.
Good cheap goggles
Since their price so low and resolution so nice you should expect cheap materials made it from. It’s my first fpv goggles and I can’t complain. But some cheap feeling there. There is some light outs at nose part of it. But for that price is no problem. Thanks.
