If you like the idea of not having to purchase and install receivers on a brand new pair of goggles the Skyzone 02's are worthy of your consideration. This a ready "out of the box" solution. I literally pulled them out of the box plugged in a battery, pressed the search button a couple of times and was up and flying in less than 5 minutes. Refreshing, yes! After a few flights I removed the eye-cups and installed the face-plate and foam and flew a few more packs, both functioned perfectly fine.
The 16x9 screen ratio feels natural and the displays have very good color and contrast. The 854 x 480 WVGA displays present an immersive field of view that do not leave you feeling like you are watching a small television in a dark room.
The IPD (Interpupillary Distance) adjustments work smoothly and visually adjust to a slightly wider point than other headsets. Good news for those of us with serious millimeters between pupils.
I immediately noticed the improved reception of the diversity receiver system. If you haven't tried dual receivers yet the O2's will put a smile on your face. The stock dipole antennas work fine if you are staying in close and not putting too much "stuff" (trees, buildings etc.) between you and your aircraft, however if you want to push the limits you will need to install more advanced antennas (Omni & Patch).
With the touch of a button you can see through the camera mounted in the front of the goggles. While this feature is fun to play with for a few minutes, we have no idea what it is for, or how it is useful to the FPV pilot. If anyone does know, drop us a line.
In closing the Skyzone O2's are a solid competitor in the upper end FPV goggle market. They have intelligent features, are easy to use, and have a flight performance comparable or better to anything at this price point.
