    Does anyone already tested this type of video glasses with a Q500 ?


    PirateEye monocular video from Paya technology Limited could be on sunglasses or clear glasses with real-time delivery VGA (640x480) video attached over one eye.


    It's an adaptation of ICE tactical glasses serie from ESS:

    This product is not new. It has existed since more one year...

    For me the advantage that I see is that only one eye is taken and the other may be interested in the environment that can sometimes be dangerous. For example, in complete immersion (FPV) you can not see the ground and twist an ankle you see walking down ... and you have a very limited viewing angle like a horse wearing blinders. Which is not the case for this system because you keep one eye for your environment ;-)

    The screen is only under the direction of vision. You can look on the screen just above the screen or looking down. Your eyes can easily monitor the movements of your quad on top and at the same time, you can search to see your video camera slightly to the inside of the LCD, which lifted from your drone.

    You could even adjust correction for you vision if you need.

    To supply the monocular video glasses, a 1000mAh 3S LiPo battery is enought. They can operate between 6.4 and 18 volts (Lipo 2s to 4s on DC 2.1mm connector).

    I have not tested in situation and therefore is only information ;-)

    Video of test:
