Top 10 Best FPV Headsets Under $100
Let’s begin with one of the cheapest FPV headsets on this list, i.e. the Eachine VR-007. This devices comes with a 4.3-inch display with a resolution of 480 by 272 pixels, weighs 217 grams (without antenna and battery) and cover myopia up to 400 degrees, allowing you to use it without glasses.

The VR-007 & VR-007 Pro sport a 5.8G 3dB antenna with a receiving sensitivity of -95dB, the only difference between the two versions seems to be the included battery voltage, 7.4V on the first and 3.7V on the Pro version and thus less power consumption, they both have a capacity of 1600mAh.
2. FuriBee VR01 – $40-45
The FuriBee VR01 packs the same 4.3-inch 480 x 272px display we’ve previously seen on the VR-007 Pro, but features two slightly more powerful 4dBi mushroom antenna and 4dBi planar antenna, with a sensitivity of -90dBi.

The headset does not come with a battery, but it has an advertised service time of 3 hours with a 2S 520mAh and more than 18 hours with a 3S 2200mAh battery.
With the JJRC JJPRO-F01 we have a bump in screen size and resolution, this headset does indeed pack a 5-inch display with 640 x 480px resolution. The JJPRO-F01 comes with a mushroom antenna and -90dBm sensitivity.
These FPV goggles include a 1S 2000mAh capacity battery for about 30 to 60 minutes of usage.
JJPRO-F01/Kylin Vision purchase: GearBest (JJRC / KDS), Banggood, Amazon
The JJPRO-F01 is the same piece of kit as the KDS Kylin Vision FPV headset (you can click to read the review of the device). In our opinion it is one of the best budget FPV headsets on the market as of now!
The Eachine EV800 features a 5-inch screen with a relatively high resolution of 800 x 480px (for the concerned price range) and 600cd/m2 brightness.
These goggles also use an unique design that allows you to detach the head mounting part and use it as a simple 5-inch FPV monitor!

The EV800 supports 40 channels and RaceBand at 5.8Ghz and comes with an auto-searching function to show what frequency you’re using. The built-in battery is a 3.7V/2000mAh, which gives the device about 3.5 hours of usage.
5. Rutforce Str600
Coming back to the very cheap territory, we have the Rutforce Str600, this headset is small and light, it features a 4.3-inch 480x272px display, 5.8GHz 3dB antenna with 40CH 5.8GHz A/V automatic search receiver support.
The Str600 is fueled by a 2S 7.4V 1300mAh capacity battery that can be charged at 5V via USB.
The Eachine VR008 is another cheap FPV headset with a 4.3-inch display and 470×272 resolution.
It comes with two 3dB omni/linear antennas and features auto searching v3.0 on 40CH, including RaceBand.

These FPV goggles do not include a battery, but you can get from a 2S 520mAh to a
3S 2200mAh, for 18 hours of maximum working time.
Eachine’s VR D2 is a more professional looking FPV headset with a 5-inch high resolution 800×480 display and two antennas, a flat and a mushroom one. The VR D2 has an adjustable lens which can get you up to 3.5 times optical zoom.

The battery on this is a 7.4V 2000mAh lipo for about 2.5 to 3 hours of autonomy, there’s also a low-voltage alarm if battery gets below 7V.
The Eachine VR009 are a very cost effective pair of FPV goggles, they do indeed feature a 5-inch display with a resolution of 800x480px while keeping prices low. It comes with an omni-directional antenna with 5.8G 40CH support.

A neat feature of the VR009 is that it packs a video and audio output jack, in addition to the AV input available on almost every FPV headset.
9. RC-009 – $70 onwards
The RC – 009 is an uninspiring looking but functional FPV headset. It features a 4.3-inch 480×272 pixels display and a dual 3dB antennas setup, supporting up to 40 channels and auto search. These goggles can be set to correct your myopia so that you don’t need to use eyeglasses.

The headset comes with a 7.4V 2200mAh lithium-ion battery.
10. RC – 007 – $70 onwards
The RC-007 is a slightly cheaper version of the RC-009 we’ve seen above. It sports the same 4.3-inch 480 x 272 pixels display but only one 5.8G 3dB antenna.
The included battery is also smaller with a capacity of 1650mAh against the 2200mAh on the 009, if you can spend some few extra bucks you’re better of getting the better version.
