Quanum Cyclops FPV Goggles £32.28 / £38.93 delivered Hobbyking

£32.28 @ Hobbyking
Never seen these so cheap before usually £50+, if you fancy a go at fpv flying but don't want to spend a fortune on a pair of Fatsharks, all the YouTube reviews seem very positive. Postage is another

Can you connect to any camera drone or only a FPV one?
It will only connect to "drones" that have 5.8Ghz FPV transmitters on them. Most things nowadays use 5.8.

Good price considering most are a lot more
This is giving me neck strain just looking at it.

This is a brilliant price. I have one and it is great fun.
Zmas shopping already? You are organized.
Am tempted but the amount of negative reviews is concerning.
Been using Hobbyking for at least 10 years, never had a problem. However posted deals before and admin removed them. Hobbyking effectively they are both the importer and retailer and undercut normal retailers
Hmm, not quite there yet to replace the Mrs.

Agreed, I paid way to much.

The first "too much" was when I hit the "go to basket", and I had a choice: Abandon or cough up. I chose the latter.
The later stings came while I was over a barrel: pay (for further charges), pay to return (stuff still in transit) or abandon and lose the money already paid. Of course, if I at any point knew what was ahead, I would have abandoned the transaction and cut my losses... But I did not know what was lying ahead. That's what I'm warning against...

I've been stung by Hobby King in the past: Spent hours selecting the full kit list (many out of stock, many only in CN warehouse), and eventually thought I'm ordering from the EU... yet after paying >£100 in shipping fees, I got notified that it was delivered in the EU and I had to pay another £100 for delivery in the UK. (The alternative was to pay £100 to return it to CN, or loose the order worth more than £100.) Then, after paying that, I received another £100+ import charge, so all in all I paid more than £300 more than expected when I first hit the "checkout" button.
So - I might buy from them again, but not without spending a lot of effort reading all the fine print at the time of ordering, and being prepared to be stung again.
Not voting either way, as the deals can be good, but just be aware.

You actually chose to pay two hundred quid for postage? And why were you charged another hundred for import duty? Electronic devices are duty free, you just pay vat on the purchase. So to pay vat of £100 at the standard 20% rate your total purchase would need to have been £500. If you only paid vat on the item and not on shipping charges, then the item would have to have cost £500, so you paid £800 in total. If you paid vat on the total purchase including delivery, this would've made the item £300. To have paid that amount of money you must've been getting a really good deal, like a phantom 4 comparable drone. Otherwise, as we say in God's country, your head's cut.

That sounds like a bit of cock up there. Also its not completely there fault. That's the uk customs for you. I heard royal mail charging you around £8 for deliveries, but never that much

Not bad. All the decent kits are on backorder but good to buy if anyone wants to build their first quad as cheaper to crash etc (buy a few frames)

For people starting out with rc plane. I suggest getting their Bixler as RobP mention earlier or better the AXN Floater Glider, this has lots of review.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2EfomKG7w18
So what would be a good all round Remote controller that would not need to change or could be upgraded if the interest in R/C planes takes off
If starting off new to rc world I would recommend getting this as it cheap and reliable:

The one that markaustin313 mentioned is also good

Don't know how you got this posted. Every Hobbyking deal i've posted was removed almost instantly.
IMAGINE taking out all the drones with one of these bad boys. You will need a speaker with Battle of Britain or 633 Squadron theme (my favourite).

Oh yes this bad boy separates the men from the boys!
