The Skyzone Sky02S V+ represents the new revision of their first 3D solution introduced last year. This bundle represents more a bugfix release more than a revolution. You still have some LCD screen displaying 854×480 with 30 degrees of FOV, a diversity system, a builtin DVR and now a new HDMI input. For the 3D part, both the video transmitter and FPV cam lost some weight and have been shrinked.
+ 1 x Skyzone Sky02S
+ 1 x 3D FPV cam
+ 1 x 3D Transmitter
+ 3 x Headtracker cables
+ 2 x Servo plugs
+ 4 x 5.8G linear antenna
+ 1 x AVcable
+ 2 x Power cables
+ 1 x Transportation bag
Installed on front the VGA camera
The DC input accepting from 7V up to 26V, so from a 2S LiPo for example
If you plan to power the goggles via a LiPo, select the correspond number of cells in order to display the remaining battery level in your OSD informations
IPD can be ajusted via the two slider buttons
A lot of connexion are availble. In addition with the classic AVin/out, you have now a HDMI in in microHDMI format.
No problem to display a 1080p source, the downscaling processing is efficient.
The builtin DVR whatever the video source in PAL or NTSC format records in 640×480 at 30fps for NTSC source and at 25fps.
For a NTSC source
For a PAL source
The bit rate is low (~~6Mb)… and the bad news, for PAL source the image is partially cropped to left side and the bottom side
For example, here is the capture screen extracted from the Boscam GS922 (rescaled to 640×480 from D1 format)
and compared with the Skyzone capture screen
You can notice the few lines are removed from the left and bottom sides. It happened not only for recorded files, it’s also the case for the FPV signal in goggles unfortunatly 🙁 … Maybe a future firmware will be able to solve this point.
4cm of interdistance between the two 600 TVL CMOS sensors
The total weight is 52.6g but close to 5g can be easily saved if you connect directly the 3D FPV rig to a +5V input source
Actually, the Vreg accpets only 3S balancer plug
UNBOXING AND TESTING
The first part more dedicaced to the basic of the FPV goggles, for normal 2D usage
The second video is more dedicated to the 3D elements
I had to apply following setting to have both channels in 3D mode
The new 3D bundle is working really well. The 3D effect is great for any abject between 20cm up to 5-6m. Above this distance, we can’t really enjoy 3D immersion. No flickerings vcan be noticed in the goggles. The refresh rate is Superior to 60hz. Definitively the 3D rig is more suitable for proximity flights
A super bundle, almost perfect … no more poor range in 2S like the first edition of the sky3D. The screen offers super pricize and sharp image. One can regret the 30″ of FOV less than some Fatshark model, but personally I found the actual immersion really great. The 3D rig losts a lot of weight and is efficient for proximoty flight. My tears down concern the slight cropping for PAL sources and the low bit rate for the builtin DVR.
+ Superb builtin LCD screens
+ Complete solution
+ Full connectics
+ IPD ajustable
+ Builtin DVR
+ Frontal camera
– PAL sources cropped
– DVR with low bit rate
