I am looking to buy some used Fatshark goggles off of someone. I'm not exactly sure what i am looking for yet so just show me what you have. I am a kid and don't have a lot of money so if you are looking for market price or will get offended by a low offer than just keep looking. Thank you so much for your time!

Very Respectfully,
Gracen

I bought Skyzone 02C’s new for my son instead of Fatsharks, they have been very good and come with everything you need except a battery. I ran them head to head with my Dominator V3’s and they were easily as good, in some settings better.

If you don’t mind sharing which areas were better and worse? The biggest things I am looking at are good connection, a DVR, and a large high pixel monitor. This is why I was looking at the dominators. Thanks

They had all those features, the worse parts were- no interchangeable modules, no prescription diopters yet.

Otherwise, DVR is excellent, they have an off button as standard and a very clear picture. I bought my Dominators second hand, with a decent ish module in for $250, if I was doing that again I would just buy the Skyzones, they are that good.

The Foxeer Wildfire is an excellent module, its $90 but performs easily as well as Rapidfire which is $120 according to most testers. There are cheaper options, but many of those are not great and around $50-60 anyway so spending a bit more is worth it. You will want a pair of antennae, I use a patch and a mushroom, both from Menace Rc. Lumenier antennae are very good, I can’t remember which other patch is good.
I have the Skyzone 02C, that has no front camera but has DVR and comes with inbuilt diversity receivers and is easily as good as my Dominators, certainly much better value. Plus they have a power on off switch, which none of the Fatsharks have. Buy the 02C if you want a Domoinator/HD equivalent with a good diversity set up.
Battery wise you can run two 18650 cells in a box or I use a 2200mah 2s pack on a lead, I put it in my pocket. The lead I made but they sell them. Fatahark uses a 2.5mm laptop plug on the goggles end and then I put XT60 on the other end. I added a pair of balance connectors to run the fan.
I wouldn’t buy a set of second hand goggles without at least a battery holder included, unless they are very cheap.

I have heard good things about the laforge module and it is only like $35, would it perform well?

It’s nowhere near as good as the Wildfire. I am sure it works but some of those cheap ones need a firmware change to be any good. Where they often fall down is flying with other people.
Check out some side by side comparison videos for it, look for similar conditions to your flying.
To me the FPV link is vital, if it’s not 110% reliable then it’s not worth owning. All my bad crashes and my lost quad were because of video failure.
I have the Furious D V2 which is supposed to be OK, I don’t fully trust it and haven’t flown over water or anywhere where access is a problem because I can’t afford to replace it.
Even on the supplied linear antenna the Skyzone receiver has been solidly reliable even with only a 25Mw VTX.
