Drone racing is a thing now. There are serious championships in which people compete. So it’s not surprising to see hardware companies come out with products aimed at people who like to indulge in this sport. DJI today launched a new version of its DJI Goggles and they’re meant for drone racers. The company is calling this new product DJI Goggles RE, which is short for racing edition.

DJI first launched its Goggles earlier this year in April. They look like a virtual reality headset and enable users to control their drone with just their head movements. It also enables them to see from the drone’s point of view when they’re in head-tracking gimbal mode.

The original Goggles were available in white whereas the DJI Goggles RE are available in matte black with a red leather accent on the headband.

DJI Goggles RE are compatible with non-DJI branded droners as well as third-party flight controllers like the Naze and F3. Features include video streaming with the OcuSync Video Transmission Module and Sphere panoramic viewing.

Users have the ability to connect two pairs of goggles together so that another person and watch and control the drone alongside them. DJI is going to start shipping the DJI Goggles RE later this month for $549.
