Re: Which mobile phone to FPV?

I also got an XZ Premium phone for its 4K 807 PPI for FPV... the Screen door effect (mesh between pixels)  is greatly reduced... A joy to fly with that phone...

Re: Which mobile phone to FPV?

To be honest, I'm also a bit dissapointed of the quality of the FPV view through thegoggles.  I'm using a motorola which has a ppi of 400 and I also see the pixels pretty bad. If the quality of the view would be as nearly good as the video itself shot in 720p I would be very happy, but its far less good. I look forward to test it with a phone which has a better screen resolution to see the difference, if any....And else lets hope the future will bring something something which will take the quality to a higher level.

Re: Which mobile phone to FPV?

I use an iPhone 6s that has 327 PPI compared to 577 PPI of your Galaxy S7 and even if I see the pixels (more clearly than you Smiley Tongue) I'm not having an issue at all. The correct optical adjustments are far more important than PPI. The Bebop 2 FPV stream will be 720p if you choose 720p recording also and it's quite decent !

I used analog FPV in the past 5.8GHz and it doesn't even come close to the quality of the Bebop 2 except the latency ... (Analog FPV is close to realtime - good for racing and BAD for your eyes and brain).

Re: Which mobile phone to FPV?

The only real control you have of the FPV video quality is within the video quality setting:

NB: define the recording resolution in the settings. When you record a video in 1080p, the live return video feed is 480p.  When you record a video in 720p, the live return video feed is 720p.

Just got a Sony xz Premium,, wow  what a difference, still a little blocky but soo much better. Now need to figure the settings on the line up and focus on the sky controller.. long lead is a must!

Re: Which mobile phone to FPV?

Hi, I have a Z5 and its very pixelated too, would be very interested what other FPV flyers are using and if it's worth going 4K

Re: Which mobile phone to FPV?

I am using the Galaxy S7 Edge, and have no real issues, remember the camera is not 4K, and I doubt the signal being transmitted to the phone is at full resolution. If the full resolution is being sent to the phone you would loose out on signal strength, I believe this is why DJI has a different video transmission system on their better drones to save resources for the control system.

Which mobile phone will give me the best quality of view when using Cockpitglasses FPV?

I used Galaxy S7 but view was not so sharp with pixels visible.

Should we wait for some 4K screens?


I think this is more signal issue,good wifi signal without interferance should give you a good fpv video,....making sure that phone doesnt have to many unnecessary apps running in background might help too

Hello,

Which mobile phone will give me the best quality of view when using Cockpitglasses FPV?

I used Galaxy S7 but view was not so sharp with pixels visible.
