Be curious to hear any feedback on how they compare or the lag issue in general.

I would love HD in the goggles, if no lag, but have the other fears about full card, dead battery, and other GoPro glitches.

astronautski, our the GoPro's live video is just an analog video signal, not to mention pretty much all our video downlink equipment is also analog. HD downlink may come in time, but the tech is just not yet viable for FPV flying.

Do they make any HD goggles?
Actually they do.
But one thing they don't make yet - HD transmitters and receivers, at least for any reasonable price, compact size and without delay.

you can even do the 848x480 120FPS mode with live out
the better light handling of the GP2 makes it the better option, but both work fine.

The main difference is in low light like you can see
Anyone using the new GoPro Hero 2 for FPV with the live video out? Just wondering how it compares to the original Hero? Some say the original had some lag on the video out that could cause some delay for solid FPV use.

I think its funny how they mention using live out is ok for flying high but not for close in proximity flying. GundamnitPete must have missed that part lmao!!! Hes a nut with the close stuff all gp1 live out. Not sure how he does it. I think he sees the matrix ;-)
