A DVR Created Purely for FPV

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.

 Accessories for Head, or Pocket Mounting

The Power Part…

PowerPlay’s Power section is a pair of two 3.7V 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 with a freshly charged set.

The PowerPlay does not ship with batteries, but suitable 3.7V 18500 2040mAh cells are available from most vape shops, and are the same ones used in the FrSky X-Lite radios, so any decent FPV retailer will stock them.

* 3 hours with 2040mAh cells, not shipped with the product

Head Strap

The PowerPlay ships with a head-mounting accessory pack. A quick-release clip mounts on the rear of the standard goggle headstrap, and the new included top-strap ensures a comfortable fit.

A short ‘Y’ cable connects 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 which 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.
