INTRODUCTION

Few months ago have started the war of FPV gogggles offering large FOV with at least 5″ builtin displays. The first model introduced was the headplay HD followed by a popular clone the Skyzone SJ-V01. At the time, Eachine introduced the Goggles ONE but a lot of fatal errors in the original design killed its potential success. A new revision is now introduced with Eachine Goggles 2 with the same screen caracteristic, an excellent 5″ supporting up to 1080P resolution but also in theory fixing all problems of the original EG1. More with the EG2, a diversity system is introduced to improve the general RX sensitivity.

OVERVIEW

In term of dimension, the EG2 mimics perfectly the original size of the EG1, maybe the Goggles two is slighty taller. First visual difference, no more cheap plastic covering the body.. here we have a full EPO body and IMHO it’s a better choice. More … seems lighter too.

No more problem to fasten 5.8G antennas… A free circling gap have been introduced 🙂

Neither on top or the bottom sides, we can’t guess screws to split in two the goggles…

null

We retrieve the same 5 buttons of the EG1.

null

From left to right we have: “scan” button where in RF mode, a simple press run the scanning procedure over the 40CH, the “Source” selection between (RF/AV/HDMI). The current selected source is displayed during 5s on the top left of the screen. The third button is to enter into the menu or validate the current selection of a setting. The “+” in RFmode selects one the 40CH or decreases a value in the menu setting. The “-” in RFmode selects also one of the 40CH or increases a value in the menu setting. At the right of the buttons, we retrieve the HDMI input port in mini-format and a 2.5mm jack to plug either your earphones or an AV source. I deeply regret the absence of an AVout for an easy DVR pluggin to record your favorite FPV sessions …. A first mod to do IMHO

A large Goggles 2 sticker

The battery can be jailed into the headstrap 🙂

null

By default, no facial sponge is installed. You must tape of the two provided.

null

Not a lot of free room to wear the EG2 with large glasses ….

The battery have been upgraded to a 2S 2200mah (versus a 1600mAH for the EG1)

null

WIth this model, expect to enjoy at least one full hour of usage and as for the EG1, the current voltage is displayed on the lower left part of the screen. It will requires close to 2h to full recharge it. We can maybe regret the absence of a balancer plug for the battery.

Another improvement, not only the diversity is introduced but one antenna is a Cloverleaf model for proximity range
null

and the second a half-planner for long range FPV

null

null

Now RP-SMA connector are much more easy to access and to fasten the antenna

null

Good news, no more noisy fan…. the electronic have been upgraded and large aerial section is introduced to cool all conpounds

null

Weight

null

A total of 430g … with a larger battery … 🙂 A good news for your confort

null

Display

Generally, the good eyes, no problem of focusing and the image is crisp and precize. Personnally, I regret the non-possibility to tune the Fresnel lens distance. For my old eyes, I can’t perfectly read for example small bottom OSD informations.

– WIth a FPV source

null

On the bottom left, the current voltage of the battery, blinking when low-voltage is here. The right side shows the current frequency …. but not the current band. It’s a detail 🙂
Good news, you can force the aspect ratio in settings to 4:3, a nice introduction for the EG2.

– With a HDMI source

null

The screen is adapted perfectly. The image is precize and clear, ideal for Home cinema applications

UNBOXING & ANALYSIS

No more black-screen and the general RX sensibility is great !!!! Champagne 🙂

CONCLUSIONS

Six months have passed between the EG1 and the EG2 and all this time was really benefit for the new variant. I would say they fixed 99% of the original problem but not only: the diversity improves performances, the goggles is now lighter, a full OSD with a lot of paremeters are now available and we can now manually select some important parameters (Vfreq, video format, aspect ratio). Well this product is not yet perfect. Is missing at least an AVout to plug an external DVR and the possibility to tune the Fresnel lens distance for poor old eyes. A big bonnus would be to have a buitin DVR… probably in Goggles Three future release.
