    Conventional FPV goggles cover your eyes completely. They are not convenience for P2V, as you cannot control Vision camera, such as tilting camera, video start/stop and taking pictures.

    TV Hat ($20 only) seems a simple work around, without spending hundreds to a thousand dollars on FPV goggle :lol: You may also slip your fingers into the hat and control your iOS/Android devices. Did any P2V flyer try that?

    I thought it was a spoof/joke when I first watched the ad but it does appear it exists. Someone in the US should give it a go - is is probably rubbish but at just $20 it is worth a gamble.

    Edit: not sure if this is true but I think I read somewhere it is a good idea to sit down when first trying to fly with goggles as the experience is so immersive that you are likely to fall over.

    I'm not living in the US. It may charge me another $20-$30 for shipping alone.

    I intended to DIY something similar, with a clamp holding iPhone on visor plus some shade covering iPhone. I did google search and came up with TV Hat.

    There are some other ideas or alternatives, but I like TV Hat (idea or product) that is more appropriate for P2V. It allows our flyers to control the camera.

    This is my solution. I used it for the first time Saturday, and it works like a charm!
