Unboxing The DJI Goggles Racing Edition

This is just a simple unboxing video of the DJI Goggles Racing Edition. We plan on making more advanced training and tutorial videos soon. We thought it would be best to split the videos up as not to have all the information crammed into one video.  Watch our YouTube unboxing video.

There are two versions of the DJI Goggles, the original version which is white and the racing edition which is black. The racing edition goggles have a few extra features and design enhancements. In the racing edition goggles, DJI has redesigned the headband to make them a little more comfortable to wear as well as a redesigned faceplate to make it fit a little nicer to the face and help prevent fogging of the goggles. The DJI Racing Edition Goggles also support non-DJI drones such as analog racing drones. This is noticeable by the antenna that is not present on the original goggles. The racing edition goggles also support viewing of 360 and VR panos shot on the various DJI Drones.

I opted to purchase the DJI Racing Edition goggles so I only need to carry one pair of goggles no matter if I wish to FPV with my DJI drone or with some smaller racing quads. As for DJI Drone,s the goggles work wirelessly with the Mavic Pro and variants such as the Mavic Pro Platinum via Ocusync. The DJI Goggles also work well with the DJI Spark, Mavic Air and the Phantom 4 series of drones via a wired connection.

Both versions of the goggles also support playback of any device that outputs HDMI. The goggles for example can be used to watch Netflix movies via an iPhone.

Like I stated, this article is not a review of the goggles but I would like to add that I was extremely impressed when flying the Mavic Air with the DJI goggles. I have only had a few chances to get and fly with them but I really was amazing at how immersive it was. They are a little pricey but well worth the money in my opinion. There is not much more I am going to cover in this article but make sure you subscribe to our YouTube channel and bookmark our website for more detailed videos on how to use the DJI Goggles that we will be creating over the coming weeks.

LifThor Sif XXL The Ultimate Tablet Mount for DJI Mavic 2, Mavic Air and DJI Spark

Published

on

If you are in the market for a strong and durable tablet mount for you new DJI Mavic 2 Pro or Mavic 2 Zoom you might just want to take a look at the Lifthor SIF XXL mount. The Lifthor Sif XXL is capable of holding tablets from 9.7″ all the way up to 13″ This makes it compatible with the iPad Air, 9.7″ iPad Pro, 10.5″ iPad Pro and the 12.9″ iPad Pro. This mount system works with the DJI Spark, Original Mavic Pro/Platinum, DJI Mavic Air and the new DJI Mavic 2 Pro/Zoom models.

What really drew me to this setup when looking for a mount I could use with a larger iPad is how durable it is. If you have used other mounting systems in the past you know that some cheaply built mounts are not very secure and you will find your iPad bouncing around and quite wobbly. The LifThore Sif XXL is rock solid yet still extremely light to hold. Another key benefit to this system is the fact that all your controls are completely visible when a larger iPad is mounted. Other mounts tend to block your view of controls and you are constantly tipping the device just to see your buttons.

The LifThore Sif mounting system can be changed up at any time. If you change the size of your tablet you don’t have to re-purchase a whole new kit. You simply have to swap out the clamp to accommodate the new size of phone or tablet. There are optional accessories like lanyards to hang it around your neck you can even purchase a sunscreen to help you view the screen on really bright days.

Watch our full video review of the LifThor Sif XXL tablet mount on YouTube and visit Thors Drone World to purchase.

Turn You Mavic Air Into A Handheld Stabilized Camera | PGYTECH Handle & Tripod Review

Published

on

If you are an owner of the DJI Mavic Air you may just want to take a closer look at the PGYTECH Mavic Air handle and tripod accessory. This nifty little device turns you Mavic Air into a handheld stabilized camera. Some of its key features are built-in phone mount, built-in tripod, and integrated GoPro mount.

The Mavic Air has a really good camera, in fact, it has a higher bit rate than a GoPro Hero 6 Black, it makes sense to use it as a camera to capture ground footage as well. This saves you having to pack extra cameras and camera gear if you want to grab a few quick shots from the ground to blend in with your drone videos. Then when you consider the fact that many of us already own all the Mavic Air ND filter sets that can be used when filming handheld as well.

The PGYTECH handle and tripod has a nice build quality and is extremely lightweight, this makes packing it in a backpack easy and convenient. If you carry a GoPro in you drone pack as well then it is a double win as this handle does have a built-in GoPro mount. You can use your GoPro and mount your smartphone to get a nice feed of what you’re filming.

A nice little must-have accessory for the DJI Mavic Air. Watch our YouTube video review for an in-depth review and sample footage shot on the Mavic Air while mounted in the PGYTECH handle and tripod accessory.
