After shaking up the budget and entry-level quadcopter drone industry with super affordable aircraft, Eachine have now moved on to making some budget FPV gear.

This doesn’t just include quadcopters and parts, but also FPV goggles. The Eachine VR-007 happen to be the first FPV goggles from Eachine, and according to reviews, the gadget is quite a handful.

Today we’ll take a look at not what the goggles do or how they perform, but what goes on inside the Eachine VR-007.

For the record, the Eachine VR-007 goggles were announced alongside the Eachine Assassin 180 RC drone. Take an in-depth look at the flier here.

Eachine VR-007: Teardown!

Here are the instructions on how you can take apart the Eachine VR-007 FPV goggles:

  1. Unscrew the 4 screws on the bottom face of the goggles, and then slide the top and bottom half apart. Remove it slowly to be sure that you don’t pull any wires.
  2. Unscrew the bolt on the receiver antennae connection and slide the receiver board out (watch out for the plastic channel selector button that falls out).
  3. Slide the screen and lens out.

The following are the parts as seen on a teardown.

Eachine VR-007: Upgradeability and Mod-ability

According to Banggood, the makers of the VR-007 FPV goggles, you can swap the in-built display for a higher resolution one. Of course, YMMV.

Should you be interested in buying these goggles, you can head over to this page where you can buy them for $69 from the official (and only) seller.
