A DVR Created Purely for FPV (and Tapeless Camcorders)
The internal DVR on FatShark Dominator Goggles is ‘ok’, but it doesn’t come close to the quality that PAL/NTSC can offer. Instead of the MJPEG compression used in the Dominator, the PowerPlay uses x264 (AVC) compression, with a much higher bit-rate. The 30fps frame rate of the Dominator is also doubled to 60fps, which is essential for capturing fluid race footage.
- Powers FatShark Goggles (with power switch)
- h264 Recording, at up to 60fps
- Built-in 6cm LCD display, showing recording + playback
- USB-C Charging
- Accessories for Head, or Pocket Mounting
Note: 18500 Batteries NOT Included.
The Power Part…
PowerPlay’s Power section is a pair of two 18500, Li-ion cells, that can power a Dominator HDO + rapidFIRE + DVR for up to 3 hours *.
To recharge, either use the built-in USB-C port for up to 1.5A charging, or simply pop out the cells, and replace them with a freshly charged set.
Larger capacity 2040 mAh cells are available from most RC shops and are the same ones used in the FrSky X-Lite radios, so any decent FPV retailer will stock them.
18500 batteries no longer included.
The PowerPlay ships with a head-mounting accessory pack. A quick-release clip mounts on the rear of the standard goggle head strap, and the new included top-strap ensures a comfortable fit.
A short ‘Y’ cable connects to power, A/V, and the fan connector.
The rear-mounted DVR has the advantage of letting people standing behind you see what you, the pilot, is seeing.
A longer version of the cable is also supplied, for those who would rather keep their battery/DVR in a pocket, and keep weight off of the head.
Show off your Micro/Whoop footage
Quads that are extremely lightweight do not want the extra weight burden of an HD camera system. High-quality SD recordings of these amazing indoor flights are therefore of interest. PowerPlay delivers this quality.
