    just got back from the first flight, worked like a charm --
    setup: p3p, running litchi on a samsung s4.
    as long as my signal was good it was tons o' fun to fly with em on
    & the head tracking controls the gimbal tilt, super cool -- like a budget apache gunship!
    i have zero VR experience, so nothing at all to compare it too, but i'm pretty hyped on this.
    gonna run down to home depot & pickup some magnets to do the lil diy switch:

    How is this working? Has anything, in your opinion, come along that's better in the last few months?
    Also, What exactly is the magnet switch for and why is it not already part of the VR One.
    Thanks!

    I know it works great but you get half of the phone screen resolution and picture is not 16:9

    You get used to what you keep on seeing. 16:9 is the most popular format these days. Tv, movies... All follow it.

    There are now many headsets available within the £25 range in the UK offering support for android and iPhone. Just ordered one now ready for when my P3A rocks up.

    So that does work with my phone? Describe what the experience was like. Do they sell it in the US?

    I guess it's available in the US. Basically it worked like a pair of FPV goggles but you need Litchi or another VR capable drone app. It gives you a 3D effect but otherwise it's pretty good. That said I'm not comfortable with full FPV as I like to be more aware of my surroundings.

    It looks like the phone only goes half in - how do you see the whole screen ?
