Eachine EV800 FPV Goggle or Monitor

While testing several goggles for DM, Eachine EV800 caught my attention. Not only was the price great but something we have been doing, making a spare fpv headplay as a monitor. Eachine EV800 was designed with that in mind, a separable goggle 5 inch screen that can be used as small monitor with a tripod. Brilliant!

First Impression, we love how it separates and serves as a monitor. In terms of the reception, clarity and usability, we have to report back after a few more tests. Standby.
