    I installed the HDMI mod and bought ..New Accupix MyBud 3D Viewer HMD Glasses 100".....From eBay. They were brand new from USA. I was really skeptic about the cheap price as the seller said he would take $164. but took a chance and as just using them in my basement to test them out I like them. It has a HDMI input to it. But I never seen anything to compare to. But I'm not a perfectionist like a lot of people but I am happy with it. Need sometime to try it out side. Maybe some of you pros have tried these.

    Yeah. I've tried a few FPV headsets.
    All of them are very ordinary.

    The view is not great. The don't fit very well. Are very uncomfortable. And the slightest movement will pit the vision out.

    I'll see what the Glyphs are like with the different way they produce the image.

    The real problem is you can't see very well with an iPad etc in sunlight.

    I've got a few sunshades and they work ok but not great.

    I really wonder why DJI doesn't have a go a producing a decent FPV option.

    The Avegant Glyph has head tracking as well.

    I'll post the video of that now.

    Cheers

    Oh, I'll admit if I had the green I'd try those. I'm with you on not being able to see well no matter what kind of sun shield you have. I'm really tempted to pick up some fpv goggles of some sort for sunny day flights.

    They are just being released to Foundation Supporters from Kickstarter. The general public should be able to get ahold of them in a couple of months.
    See what the price is like then....
    They've been selling for well over 1000 US on eBay.

    Like anything when they first come out.
    Good thing is we will see how they hold up over the next few months.

    They look like the go with the way the visuals are produced.
    And you can still maintain visual line of sight, so in Aus it should still be legal.

    Cheers
