Defect Issue: Horizon Hobby has become aware of an issue with the Focal™ FPV Wireless Headset. In certain circumstances, the headset may auto bind to a Spektrum™ receiver and take control of functions assigned to Channels 6 or 7. If the Spektrum™ receiver is installed in an aircraft and these channels are set to arm the motor, it may cause an uncommanded engagement of the aircraft’s throttle. This may lead to property damage and injury.

Developed in cooperation with Fat Shark, the Focal™ FPV headset is a premium 5.8GHz headset that uses exclusive Spektrum™ technology for wireless head tracking and channel selection. It also boasts some of the most comfortable ergonomics available.
WIRELESS HEAD TRACKING AND REMOTE CHANNEL SELECTION ADJUSTMENT
A built-in module allows the Focal headset to communicate with any Spektrum transmitter that has Wireless Trainer Link technology. This makes it possible to control head tracking without a cord and remotely change camera channels.
OUTSTANDING IMAGE QUALITY
Focal users will enjoy crisp, clear 640x480 optics and a perfectly proportioned, 32˚ field of view. The distance between the optic screens – also known as the Inter-Pupilary Distance – can be adjusted to match the spacing of a user's eyes.
Depending on the mission, Focal users can optimize headset reception with long-range antennas, omni-directional antennas or both.
BUILT FOR COMFORT
Instead of individual eye cups, the headset uses a foam-padded mask for a more comfortable fit. A built-in cooling fan adds to the comfort during long periods of use and helps prevent the optics from fogging up.
