Fat Shark's HDO Goggles bring fort a new era in FPV technology. Using a patented OLED display architecture, the HDO delivers superior, high-speed images with deeper blacks and more colorful pixels. All of that is backed by the same reliability and warranty of all Fat Shark gear. The HDO’s OLED display stack produces vivid colors and higher contrast ratios, giving pilots the ability to see better detail under challenging and changing lighting conditions. Fast-moving images also display better thanks to reduced artifacts from image retention. On top of the OLED module, Fat Shark’s patented optics produce crisp images from corner to corner on each display, alleviating any blurriness around the edges of the image.

Upon plugging in the HDOs to my laptop (the same one I used for the HD3s) I could not get the HDMI output in the goggles. I am not sure whether or not the cause was a bad design or the overall UAT process surrounding the hardware/firmware changes enabling automatic input switching when an external source is detected.
Let me explain my testing steps...
I thought it was the input signal altogether, so I tried plugging into a different HDMI source. Since the age of streaming, the only HDMI source I own is a PS4 with PS VR Goggles. I tried direct output from the PS4 and then also by plugging into the PS VR box. Neither one worked.
I started to suspect my problem might originate with the Monoprice HDMI cable. My MP cable has a Mini at one end and standard size at the other - same as the white cable that comes with the HD3s.
SIDE COMPLAINT: given the price of the HDOs, I was SHOCKED they didn't include this cable. When I ordered, I assumed the cable was never pictured with the product because someone in marketing flaked on the product photos.
I went to the local Fry's Electronics here, in Seattle. I brought my HDOs, MacBook Pro and Monoprice cable into the store with me. I proceeded to test the following combinations:
- Gaming PCs with the Monoprice cable and HDOs
- Gaming PCs with comparable HDMI cables in Fry's (BTW...the staff was GREAT about opening packages and helping troubleshoot the issue)
- Desktop computers with an RCA to HDMI conversion along the way
- My laptop with an HDMI cable sold at Fry's
- My laptop with various adapters on a standard-sized HDMI cable (...I know, it sounds stupid, but I was growing desperate and felt ridiculous this wasn't working)
- Blue Ray players with my Monoprice cable
- Blue Ray players with various combinations of HDMI cables and adapters sold at Fry's
- Blue Ray players with RCA to HDMI conversion along the way
I concluded the product MUST be defective. I requested a replacement from Amazon and it arrived the next day.
This time, prior to opening the package, I started filming so I could post my insanity on YouTube if all didn't go well. I immediately plugged the replacement into my laptop using my Monoprice cable - I didn't bother adding the ImmersionRC module or anything, not even the new battery. I wanted to ensure it was clear that I didn't make any modifications to the product.
Upon plugging the replacement into my laptop - BOOM, it worked! ....HA - no, I'm just kidding. It's a piece of crap too.
I would LOVE to see a YouTube-friendly demonstration of someone using these with an external HDMI source. My unreasonable desire is to see Fat Shark provide a demonstration of the HDMI source working with the HDOs -- complete with specifications around the video source, the cable, the weather outside and what the tester had for breakfast.
I'll post a video of my side-by-side HDO comparison soon. If I can, I'll update this review to include the video.
Then they came out with a firmware update and the problem went away.
So, I have the HD3's and these HDO's and the HDO's do have a better image but when you are flying the size is not notcable as you are enjoying the clear and more contrasty image.
I am now impressed!
A few days ago I was reading the reviews on the HDOs and noticed another individual that had the same problem.
There’s were filled with some small cans. I just went to post this and noticed there post has been removed.
I just spoke with amazon and they said that something is going on with these shipments.
I have heard all the horror stories about this happening to to other folks. I can’t believe this happened to me.
Hopefully this will get fixed soon.
I was so wanting to fly with these this weekend, the weather in Tx is starting to clear up.
To my dismay, I had to return them after wearing them for a very short period of time. Both lenses had distortion from top to bottom about 3/4 of the way out. Very noticeable when adjusting the goggles on my face from side to side. I didn't notice this when I wrote this review as I only had them on a few minutes. But after my eyes adjusted, yeah, im really disappointed because they are so sharp and clear. Perhaps I should have sent them to Fatshark, idk but this is more then I would normally spend on something like this.
You don't buy these HDO's for the features, or dvr. You buy these for the epic oled screens. I can only compare them to the FS Attitude v2's and FXT V2. Attitude's are laughable in comparison to either of these. FXT's have a beautiful huge screen but are massive in comparison to FS goggles. HDO's are compact, with bright crystal clear screens. AKK diversified rec was suppose to be here same delivery as HDO's, but something happened on shipping end so had to test them with an Immersion LR ground station. Having never owned an external rec goggle the new oled tech for rx's is pretty amazing looking and is filled with high tech functions. I already purchased the fatshark 18650 battery pack for other goggles, but the included new style FS sealed lipo battery comes charged, allows usb charging, and has a push button battery meter.
I don't know your situation so cant tell you what to buy and how much to spend. But for me, the HDO's are an amazing step up in my fpv journey.
