Not perfect.....but pretty dam good!14 May 2020If you can get past a bit of 'sticker shock' the Epson BT35e present a compelling case in an absolute sense and also relatively over DJI box type goggles. Here's why, I will start with the good and then point out opportunities for improvement. The good.... The picture - the BT35e's give you 1080p about 15cm of your eyes. While it's a great picture, to be fair DJI googles probably eclipse it but the difference is not notable for mine because they are both excellent. Form factor - the BT35e's are much smaller and lighter then DJI style box goggles. Be aware though the BT35e don't fold so unlike the BT300 they are bulkier to transport then those however. On the upside the arm mechanism of the glasses is shear genius and lends itself to a better fit overall. Ease of use - the BT35e's require only one chord to the glasses and one chord to the Smart Controller (supplying power and Video). You must source a suitable USBC chord to do this of at least 10GBPS (check Amazon because nobody else seems to stock them). Performance - the BT35e's are only a replica image of what's on the SC which is a good thing. They suffer from none of the issues the BT300's were famous for (overheating, ultra sensitive track-pad, and rickety software). Also unlike the DJI box googles which have their own separate wireless link to the aircraft you do not get any range reduction issues with the BT35e's nor the issue of the Smart Controller and DJI googles 'competing' for a link to the aircraft. Versatility - with the BT35e's you can use them with other devices (phones, tablets etc) providing they have a suitable USB connection. Any aircraft that uses the Smart Controller means you can also use the BT35e's with as well such as M2Pro, M2Z, M2E, P4PV2 and Air 2 (soon, we hope). Compliance - well, you have VLOS with the BT35e's so for now you are CASA compliant in Australia, with box googles you'r e not (in most circumstances) The not so good.... VLOS - well yes and know. The BT35e offer VLOS and when the aircraft is close that is indeed true but once it gets 100m or more out it might be technically true but practically you can't see much of the aircraft. For mine, I really want to VLOS the aircraft on take-off and landing so I'm good with that but if anyone tells you you can watch the aircraft VLOS and through the glasses at 500m, well, they are dreaming ! The Shades - on the BT35e you get just the one shade which is pretty dark which is great for sunny days which we of course get a lot of but it's too dark in other situations. Problem is if you take the shade off altogether its too light and the picture washes out. Epson don't offer a fix this in Australia which is unfortunate. The shades 2 - they are sold as flip-ups and that is indeed true but it's a poor flip up mechanism and doesn't lend itself to quick use. However, Rochester Optical out of NY offer an aftermarket part which is beautifully crafted and a dream to use and incorporates a change to the nose piece as well making the ergonomics of the glasses even better. The Rochester Optical shades are a MUST have as far as I'm concerned but unfortunately the tint darkness is much the same as the OEM and wait for it, they are about $250AUD shipped - yuk ! As an aside Rochester Optical have also just released the "Solitaire" for the BT35e which completely seals out light from the outside much like box googles. Might be of interest if you intend on using them for gaming occasionally. So there it is, the BT35e's, a wonderful piece of tech which quite simply blows the competition out of the water..... but at a price.
