Introduction
Congratulations on purchasing Fat Shark Attitude V3 FPV video goggle integrated with
modular receiver bay, interlaced 3D solution and head tracking. To ensure your continued
enjoyment, please take the time to thoroughly read through this operating manual before
using.
Product Compatibility
The Attitude V3 has been designed to adhere to established video standards and is
compatible with any product also adhering to accepted video standards. Due to the high
number of different manufacturers and variation in quality, it’s impossible to for us to have
tested with every product combination and some troubleshooting may be required if
mix/matching components. The Attitude V3 has been thoroughly tested with ImmersionRC
gear. For best results and no compatibility issues, Fat Shark recommends ImmersionRC
gear for your accessory products.
IMPORTANT!!!! Product Warning!!!!!
DO NOT LEAVE HEADSET EXPOSED TO DIRECT
SUNLIGHT. SUNLIGHT WILL MAGNIFY THROUGH THE
OPTICS AND BURN HOLES IN THE LCD COLOR FILTER
THIS WILL NOT BE COVERED BY WARRANTY. KEEP

Recording Video
Connect AV cable to AV out port on right side of headset. Connect recording device to
cables and set up as per manufacturer directions.
Note: Cables pins are not all the same (see above chart), be sure to connect to headset
using the included cable.
Using an External Receiver:
Use the AV cable to connect headset to the RCA AV port of external devices.
To share the base station power supply with your goggles, pick up a 3m Dominator AV cable
accessory from your retailer. Note; internal receiver must be shut off to properly display
external AV.

Adjustable Earphones (FSV1605)
For simplicity and minimalist controls, the Attitude
V3 does not have volume control. Audio is
outputting at max volume and needs to be
adjusted to comfortable level via adjustable
volume earphones.
AV Cable (FSV2003)
This 3 RCA Male to 4-pole Right Angle Cable
allows you output the wireless signal from your
Fat Shark headset to an external monitor or
recording device. It can also be used to connect
and display alternative video sources in the
goggles.
Head Tracker Data Cables
Due to the various number of radios and aftermarket products, data cables are not
included in the set. The following model numbers can be purchased through your
retailer:
FSV2112: Futaba type radios (square connector)
FSV2113: JR type radios (3.5mm 3p prong)
FSV2114: ezUHF cable (PS/2 to PS/2)
FSV2115: Spektrum radios
Black FacePlate (FSV2617)
The fan-equipped faceplate adds comfort
and prevents fogging.
Remove the
eyecups and snap in place. The battery
balance lead provides power for the fan
and runs in 10m cycles with auto power off
to prevent accidental discharge of the
battery.

Operational Advice

For best performance, select a channel that has the least amount of
interference. While the transmitter is turned OFF, turn on the video
headset and look at the screen as you check each channel. Clear
channels will have a consistent static background. Channels with
interference will have horizontal static lines.
Always perform a range test before flying. This includes AV and RC
controls. Some RC receivers can be affected by the proximity of other
electronic devices particularly the AV TX.
Try to space out your components as much as possible to avoid
interference to your RC control range (keep stuff away from RX)
Until experienced, practice flying in a familiar area to avoid becoming
disorientated.
Due to antenna characteristics, there is a “null” in line with antenna
direction. You may experience excessive video breakup when flying
overhead
5.8Ghz signal strength drops off very fast, stay safely within solid AV
range.
For maximum distance it is very important that a clear line of sight exists
between the transmitter and the video headset. 2 of the worst causes of
interference are human bodies and reinforced concrete.
Place your TX antenna in open area in a vertical orientation
Multipathing (reflections off buildings/ tall objects) causes signal
cancellation and result in broken video. Fly in open areas away from
buildings or other tall structures (i.e. barns, hills).
5.8Ghz AV with 2.4Ghz RC controllers: 2.4Ghz may cause harmonic
interference on Ch2 – Ch7 of the 5.8Ghz AV (Ch1 not affected). The
headset has been equipped with a high pass filter that will allow the
system to work with CE certified 2.4Ghz RC controllers. However, the
filtering may be insufficient to remove noise from overpowered non CE
certified controllers.
If you experience interference from your RC radio, change the AV channel
to channel 1.
Although you don’t require any license to operate this device, you are still
legally responsible for operating in a responsible manner.
Warranty
The system can be exchanged for a new unit within 30 days for any manufacturing
defects if returned in new condition. The video headset will be warranted for repair
for 2 years if no signs of excessive use. Buyer will be responsible for shipping
costs. If beyond the warranty period we will provide repair services.

Possible cause/solution
- No power supplied. Check power connections.
- If using wireless module, turn on RX power on bottom of
headset.
- If using AV in cable, check video source.
- Ensure TX is on and camera connections solid
- Ensure lens cap is removed from camera
- Trying to power a 12V camera with the 5V TX supply
(need to connect 12V camera direct to RC pack.
LCD driver has failed and needs to be replaced under
warranty. Contact your retailer.
- Choose a cleaner channel.
Check to see if cause is harmonic interference from
2.4Ghz RC controller (turn radio on/off).
- Use CH1 on TX/headset (Ch1 not affected by 2.4Ghz)
- check correct frequency antenna is used
- Ensure headset is turned on before RC radio
- Review controller manual for correct settings
- Check servos are plugged into correspondingly selected
channels
- Cable was modified and resulted in voltage applied to
signal line (fried HT)
- Mated to an aftermarket channel mixer and wired wrong
resulting in voltage applied to signal line
- Incorrect installation of aftermarket UHF RC system
resulting in voltage applied to signal line .
Auto disengage function activated. Follow menu
instructions to turn off.
- Ensure 5.8Ghz antenna were installed
- Turn off transmitter and check for other sources of
interference
- Ensure transmitter has clear LOS to headset. Test in
wide open area, away from any obstructions
- Ensure that a compatible antenna is installed. Do not
use other manufacture antenna, they may be dual band
or may be reverse SMA (no center pin to connect to
receiver)
You were careless and left goggles exposed to sun. Sun
burnt off LCD color filter.
