FatShark Dominator 3rd Generation modular FPV System
Experience the new Dominator, an innovative 3rd generation FPV headset designed by Fat Shark, the original leading FPV manufacturer. The Dominators excellence is characterized by its beautiful glass optics display, unique modular design and revolutionary ergonomics. The discerning FPV pilot can customize their headset setup to compliment their individual FPV flying style. The Dominators impressive pedigree is rooted in the original RCV922 headset; it is the evolutionary result of blending latest technology and manufacturing techniques with the refinements gathered from 3 years of field use and customer feedback on the RCV922. Purchase with the confidence of brand name quality, renowned customer service excellence and knowing the guys that make your FPV gear are out flying with it themselves on a Sunday afternoon.
The Dominator comes in a hard protective case with 3m AV cable (for connecting to external receivers) and a 1m head tracking cable (for connecting to Futaba style radios). The optional RF modules are available in 2.4Ghz and 5.8Ghz and are compatible with Fat Shark transmitters (not compatible with Chinese brand transmitters).
The optional head tracking module is an advanced FPV head tracker that utilizes 3 sensing technologies; motion is detected by a sensitive dual axis gyro which is continuously calibrated to a fixed external reference determined by the compass sensor and accelerometer. The result is the smoothest error-free head tracker available.
I just ordered these with transmitters , what else besides battery for the goggles (crazy they don't come with it) will I need.? I've seen Filtered balance lead supply to filter battery power, wires to run from Gopro to fatshark interface, but can't figure out as this is my first attempt at FPV. Was always on ground w RC cars
Did you order transmitters with a receiver also Bob? the Dominators don't have a built in receiver so you will need an external one to then run inputs to the AV port of the glasses. Make sure you get the corresponding RX to the transmitters you ordered, grab a couple of upgraded antennas too, you will want them as soon as you've got the hang of it. Also a buddy/trainer lead is great if you have a mate who can help you get started and watch the aircraft while you are in the FPV zone :)
I've been trying to use the AV out on my dominators with the supplied cable. I cannot get a thing out of it. What am I missing? I have tried two different TVs with no luck. Tried pulling the cable in an out a bit in case of a bad connection, nothing! Perhaps the connection just doesn't work...
3 thumbs up!
I own both goggles - the dominator and the "old" one... The view is complete different. To explain is a little bit difficult, because you have to see it by yourself, but I will try:
The old one has a larger field of view, so it is more realistic, the dominator is like sitting in the cinema, watching a movie, because you can see the black borders beside the picture. The picture of the dominator is fantastic. It is sharp and clear and the colours are better than in the old one.
I like it, that I can easy change between the different frequency modules, because I use 2.4GHz and 5.8GHz on my models.
The additional headtracker works like a charm with my Futaba CG10. You need only one cable from your transmitter to the Fatshark, witch is included. In a german forum a user changed that to use it wireless by using a little 433Mhz System... The headtracker is installed and configured within a few minutes. GREAT!
The only contra point are the eyecaps. They don't fit very well and fall down because they are too loose.
You cannot change the distance for your eyes, like it was possible in the old version.
The quality of the housing is much better than the old one.
I like the new modular approach and with prisms there is no way to hit the lenses with your eye lashes like with the old goggles. The picture is sharper, but more "movie-theatre-like". Good job from FatShark.
A very good 30FOV the straight edges of the image does not curl up like a 46FOV. The edges are straight! A bit difficult to explain. As if the cinema Atul middle part of the back row. No annoying! The colors are more vivid clearer picture of the old image. :)
