Fpv more then one set of goggles on the same model ?
Ok so this is all new to me i dont even have my first setup yet but everything is on its way. I heard you can run more then one set of goggles on one model so let say i can fly and wear mine and if i have a spare set i can give a friend so they can see what i see. Is this correct and is there any special way to do this?
Mabey one day i will actually land one of these things !!

You will need a diversity setup to enable splitting the signal. The signal CAN be split but it will be degraded to the point it probably will make both unusable. There are two options here, buy a receiver with two outputs OR if you already have a receiver sent the 'single' output through an amplifier to enable splitting and boosting the signal at the same time. This will simply require another piece of hardware such as an EagleTree Eagle eyes splitter or one made by Oracle. not a big deal but simply using a 'Y' will not work.

When looking are receivers there are two different items Diversity and Dual outputs. A diversity receiver is a box with 2 receivers inside and it will select which ever receiver has the best signal (which is not that easy to do) but what you want is a single receiver with 2 outputs, one for each set of goggles or what ever display device you decide to hook up to the 2nd output.

So be careful with the term "diversity"

I dont have anything in the air yet have purchased a majority of the items needed i think minus a 2nd pair of goggles and what else im not sure but what i would like to do is just run one aircraft with a single transmitter i guess? so that myself and a friend can watch the same thing

Items i have purchased so far is an ImmersionRc vortex 385 and a single fatshark predator v2 googles and a rx module that i guess i dont need as it looks like the predator goggles have one built in allready but i guess i could use them with the second pair of goggles

So i would still need a second set of goggles and a new TX to transmit to both sets of goggles? or am i wrong?

Also as far as loosing strength im not sure how much would i loose vs what i am actually needing it would be more park flying then anything and if i am going to lose strength can i priortize it to a certain set of goggles?

Thanks for all the help in advance!!

I use 2 sets of goggles all the time to let a friend watch. No loss of signal or problems with one goggle or multiple ones for me. I've tested it out with one pair of goggles and have also used 2 googles and a monitor with no problem. Set both goggles to the proper channel and have fun. I use Fatshark and headplay for people to watch.

I have the ImmersionRc vortex 385. Very fun on 3s and waiting for my 4s. You will like it.

Just out of curiosity (and more in general), why would it matter how many receiving devices there are? The transmitter is transmitting a signal. The goggles, monitor or whatever receiver is just receiving the signal, correct? I have a radio-mounted monitor and tripod monitor on my F550 and have never noticed any issues. Are the goggles somehow different?

New into multi-rotor (was a heli guy), so I'm just learning the ropes...

EDIT: Sorry, I re-read the OP and I think I am understanding it is to use only one receiver? They're so cheap, why would you want to do that?

Yeah im curious my self why you would loose strength the singal is excatly that you dont loose distance on a radio if more people are on the same frequencyMabey one day i will actually land one of these things !!

To keep this simple you will have 1 Tx on the craft and it will transmit to a Rx on the ground. The output of the Rx will go you your viewing device i.e. goggles or monitor. One thing I never is argue with success and if splitting a signal works for someone, go for it. As a general rule we try not to split a signal without amplifying it. You can have as many RX as you want on the ground. A stand alone and inside goggles from the same TX. A lot of stand alone RX have 2 outputs.

Im not trying to argue just trying to understand so please dont take offence to my ignorance.

But i assume you not splitting the signal just receiving the same broadcast

With that assumption not that it is the same but a radio station doesnt loose range just because more people are receiving the same broadcast or do they ?

I would assume my output is the same no matter how many people are listening but there ability to listen could vary depending on there receivers ability to receive data
