  • Wyntrblue: yea i have been. and they say thanks for your call can i call you back... then radio silence... all very annoying, still im applying for around 10 a day at the moment and the as the saying goes. throw enough mud at a wall and some will stick.

    May 24, 2018, 13:06:33
  • mo_miah: with the number of applicants they don't have time to respond to everyone, normally they say they will contact you within x weeks for an interview and if you dont hear back then assume its a no

  • hoverfly: F/wings  made one called the Hornet  it's not listed now so i assume it's discontinued.  I have 3 Ravens  in various set ups , they go very well with multirotor motors . If you laminate them they are almost  indestructible,  the only bit to suffer is the wing tips. Absolute bargains... ~~

Hey Davie. I am in Wishaw. No far from you.

I have both the fatshark doms v3 and the qaunums v2 . You are welcome to try them out.

Hi

I have the Cyclops and find that even with glasses on I can';t get a sharp image, for me the inbuilt lens is just not strong enough, for my eyes and prescription.

I have a reading prescription of about 1.5 dioptres and use Skyzone goggles successfully without any additional lenses. It is my understanding that the images of the screens are placed optically at infinity by a combination of multiple lenses, so your eyes are observing rays that appear to come from a distant object.

I';ve also tried the flyingwings eco type of goggles with a single screen and single fresnel lens and never really got a good image from them at the lens wasn';t strong enough. I haven';t given up on them but they are in the queue for attention. The single fresnel lens wasn';t strong enough and there was no room to wear reading glasses.

The true test is to try some out and I see you have had an offer. Also, Maplins sell FPV goggles so you could probably try some there.

I wear glasses with a prescription of about -3.5

I use Fatshark googles with the diopter lenses, -2.00 is close enough and I can see the image perfectly well.

Hope this helps,
Martin

People have noted that the single screen goggles, like the Headplay will allow glasses to be worn, while in the other more innovative camp, people appear happy to butcher Fatsharks and set the workings inside ski masks.
I wear glasses and have a rather complicated prescription, so will be heading for the single screen ones, though I wish I was brave enough to hack up Fatsharks....would be lighter certainly.

With single screen headsets the usual issue is that they don';t give enough distance between eye and screen. This can be got round by using lens sold for magnifying headsets. These are sold in sets of several differing mags, and a little testing will find the one for you.

Example:-

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Magnifier-Visor-LED-Loupe-headset-Head-Light-4-Lens-Magnify-x1-2-to-x3-5-upto-x6-/131878394843

I started with Quanum2 and found that these lens clipped into the (then used) fresnel lens frame, so easy to temp fit and test.
