December 15th: Fatshark revealed the new Transformer goggles. The FSV1104 bundle is called a transformer because it is composed of the FSV1101 720p monitor with a built in diversity receiver, an FSV1103 HD Full Panel viewer. Accessories included are manual, power extension cable, cleaning cloth and Fatshark’s new 18650 Li-Ion battery holder case. This new HD panel will provide unparalleled crisp HD vision for those who fly FPV. In this configuration, the goggles enjoy the cost benefit of a single panel design but in a form and comfort factor closer to micro display type goggles. The patented folded optics allow both eyes to converge onto the single display in a viewer that is less than half the size of all previous single panel style headsets. A bottom mounted access panel can be opened to change the optics for different magnifications (sold separately).Now, this is called transformer, because one can simply unclip the display from the monocular goggles and view the image simply like on a monitor. It also makes it possible to be used on a binocular viewer which is sold separately, like the one below. This would allow those who fly FPV with a 3D camera like EMR Labs 3D lite camera to enjoy their FPV in 3D.
You will be able to pick these goggles up in your favorite FPV store starting the end of December 2016. The FSV1104 bundle will sell just below 250USD and the binocular viewer will be around 40USD.
December 8th: The Fatshark HD3 goggles now have a new corrected optics. All support request to replace the misaligned optics for our customers were honored and now the HD3 is better than ever. Bringing the crisp and sharp image one was expecting, the HD3 brings Fatshark back on top delivering performance one would expect from these goggles:

Following in the footsteps of the FPV dogfighting system from a few years ago, the Quadracer it has been completely redesigned to provide the real game in the quad racing field. Your quad equipped with this system can count the exact laps, but also make sure you reach and pass the checkpoints, on your track. You also have the possibility to combat other racers for the poll position by targeting them and shooting them down with your laser weapon. All in, the system provides an OSD to display the results right on your FPV feed, as well as a telemetry feedback to your Taranis radio where custom sound schemes can be used to hear the weapon fire, the hits, or when you passed a checkpoint.

– Supports very high motor Speed: BB1 MCU can support up to 350k eRPM, and currently the BB2 is set to 500k eRPM.

April 25th: This past Saturday I managed to test the new Cyclone antennas. Well folks, I have to tell you that there is no magic. It’s all science. If somebody calls out for a magical performance antenna, well, then put another evenly priced set right beside it and test it both. Put the videos side by side – as I did – and watch it back. Then you can draw your own conclusion if one set works better than another one. The Cyclones are indeed an excellent performing antenna set, but so is the similar priced Spironets. See the video we did over the weekend at the end of the article. Click on the below image to read the article and see the video:
April 21st: Attention, new racing antennas from VAS (Video Aerial Systems) arrives. These are the Cyclone antenna set, available to order from us by clicking here. Read our article about the three flagship antenna comparison from VAS by clicking on the image below:
April 19th: Fat Shark announced Yesterday that the new FSV2444 Diversity Antenna modules will be shipping form their facilities at the end of April. We hope the get the first shipment in the first week of May. To clarify for all, this is not a true diversity module with two separate receivers. This is an antenna diversity which checks the signal quality and switches to the other antenna if the quality suffers:
Please note this product is not available for purchase yet, as soon as we receive pricing information, we will update the website with prices. Even if this is not a true diversity, the following demo video shows the power when used with a high gain directional antenna in conjunction with an omnidirectional Spironet antenna:
As you can see as long as the high gain antenna is selected when flying forward, the reception outperforms the standard Omni antenna on the right side of the image. However when the racer flies behind the ground station, the two images are identical as both have the omnidirectional Spironet and breakups, interferences are identical on both.
March 30th: A new section was created on our website to include HDMI cables. With the digital video technology advancing in the FPV hobby the latest releases of the Fat Shark goggles are capable of displaying downscaled 720P images on the Dominator HD, Dominator HDV2 and Dominator V3 goggles. In order to connect various DJI, AR-Drone and other HDMI capable drones to the Fat Shark goggles, carious combinations of HDMI cables are required. Please not – if you did not know till now – the HDMI is a digital signal which can be split in “Y” or even more than 2 branches without the loss of signal quality. So from a DJI Phantom you can run a “Y” splitter to display the image on a set of Fat Shark goggles and on an HDMI capable display monitor as well. To access our HDMI selection click on the picture below.

This section will host all the tools, glues and the much needed blue thread-lock for any serious racing drone build.

This is a perfect companion to the wide screen Dominator V3 goggles. This video was recorded directly on the Dominator V3. The wind was a bit gusty for this flight and a spot got onto the camera on the first take off, I did not notice that till I landed the second flight. Even with that, the FPV performance of this camera is pretty clear. I barely can wait for a sparkling sunny day to fly it off a lake:

February 2nd, 2016: Today is Groundhog Day. It looks like this year will be the year of the racers in North America, all three groundhogs predicted an early spring. Halleluiah! I love winter, but till not there was no sign of winter in Toronto. I never even had a chance to go out skiing. So at least we can start FPV flying early.

January 21st, 2016: We have received a shipment of Helical and Duraspec antennas designed and manufactured by Video Aerial Systems – aka iBCrazy. The VAS helical antennas are nothing new, they do a nice comeback to New Generation Hobbies with these new flexible feed lines which allow them to be installed directly on the goggles. The Duraspec antennas are the latest nearly indestructible set from iBCrazy, just watch the video on what he is putting them through for testing. Amazing strength, hopefully will withstand your crashes as well.

IBCrazy’s new race spec antennas can be found below or on this page.
