The Fatshark Predator V2 FPV Goggles are packed with everything you need to fly FPV.
This way, you can experience unique flights live from the perspective of your drone. At the same time, you can control them. A special feature of these video glasses is that you can hear noises in flight.
Installation is very easy. In particular, newbies will have no problem getting the Fatshark Predator V2 into service. With a 25-degree field of view and a range of up to 500 meters, even the advanced and professional pays off.
Around 350 euros, the price is in the middle segment. If you buy cheap, you buy twice, especially for video goggles that are suitable for FPV flying. But those who buy the Predator V2 are safe and frustrated.
If you buy these FPV goggles, the only thing missing for a unique FPV flight experience is a matching drone.
Since Fatshark provides everything you need to set up your FPV system, the Predator V2 is one of our favorites.

- Commissioning Fatshark Predator V2
The included camera with a 100 degree wide angle lens is pretty ingenious. This allows you to get unique high quality images.
Exactly how you install the video glasses is also described again in the attached manual. Just turn on your FPV goggles, attach your camera to the aircraft and take off. Flight fun starts in no time.
The flight will hardly change, the camera weighs only 15g. It not only gives you beautiful live images, but also the sound from your drone’s area. In our opinion, this is very useful, as technical problems, for example, on engines, can be noticed in time.
The Predator V2 works wirelessly, which is a real luxury in our opinion. To enable the glasses to be powered, they have a 1000 mAh battery. For safety reasons, it also has a built-in alarm system that becomes visible as soon as the battery level falls below a certain threshold. In this way, failures can be avoided.
How Fatshark Predator V2 FPV Goggles Work
During the flight on the Predator V2 video glasses, you can make various settings:
- Adjust the volume
- Adjust brightness and contrast
- Change channels (long beep sounds when switching)
What should you pay attention to?
Be careful not to fly more than 500 meters, otherwise the image transmission will be interrupted or interrupted.
If the lens is regularly cleaned with a cloth, fine dirt will not settle. It is highly durable and designed for outdoor use.
Do not expose the video glasses to direct sunlight! This breaks it down because holes are burned in the LCF color filter. The warranty does not cover this damage either! Then it will stick to you!
You can tell if the glasses are already damaged by the white spots on the screen as soon as they are used.
It is best to always store it in the included protective case and not sit face to face while flying.
Is the Fatshark Predator V2 suitable for people who wear glasses?
Yes it is! The glasses didn’t fit there at all. But since a lot of people wear glasses, the manufacturer had to come up with something.
For example, you can remove the eyecups and use the device behind the flaps to attach pre-prism lenses with a power of -2, -4, and -6.
What connections does the Fatshark Predator V2 have?
If you look closely at the video glasses, you can find all possible connection options. Here’s a quick overview:
- Antenna connection
- AV input / output
- PS / 2 connection for alternative power supply
- Connecting an external receiver or receiver
What we especially love is the ability to connect an external power supply to the PS / 2 connector. This guarantees virtually unlimited FPV fun. Voltage sources from 7 to 25 V can be connected. At 25 volts, the glasses consume about 24 mA, and at 7 volts, about 85 mA, which corresponds to about 600 mW.
Fatshark Predator V2 test result
The Fatshark Predator V2 Video Goggles are ideal for both beginners and experienced pilots. Installation and commissioning is child’s play. The complete set is included in the package, which is why the Fatshark FPV goggles are a real bestseller and are so popular among drone pilots.
The Fatshark Predator V2 is now available for 330-350 euros. Depends on which dealer you are looking at.
Of particular interest to us is the included GPS location, which contains extensive telemetry data such as flight altitude, position, battery level, etc.
The video quality of the included camera is very good. If you still don’t like it, you have the option to use the Gopro camera instead of the one included. But make sure it has a suitable connection.
Another plus is that goggle wearers can also use FPV goggles.
Overall, the performance, properties and quality are truly outstanding for this price. Therefore, we can warmly recommend the Fatshark Predator V2 to you.
