I'm not sure what you mean by "one cable"? We don't do anything with the FS power or A/V cables. This is simply a snap-on goggle which replaces the rubber eye cups.

Eh, the cable that is in the pic you posted. :o It carries power and the AV signal in one nice neat cable, rather than two separate cables.

Hi FliteEvolution, can you tell me if your ski goggles will put the Dominator screens at the same distance away from the eyes as the regular eyecups do? I know some mods cause the screens to be slightly further away which is not so great.

Good question!
I'm not sure how the lenses (fresnel lens?) work in the fatsharks in general, but I'm guesstimating that the apparent image size (45" @ 7" - from fs dominators documentation) will be reduced by ~30%.
And how exactly does FS come up with 45" @ 7"? My eyes are not 7" from the screen...:confused:

Edit: after doing some more reading, assuming the lenses in the FS are fresnel lenses, the focal point is fixed. So any increased distance from the eye to the lens results in a pure overall perceived image size reduction. I don't know how much further ones eyes are from the lenses so can't really calculate the image reduction, but I'll stick with my guesstimate...

They are just a bit further away however I don't think they compromise the FOV in any way. You can add or delete some of the foam on the goggle to adjust that distance. It's somewhat dependent on your face shape as well. I created the Clearview goggle for myself about 9 months ago and after several friends and flyers requested them, I decided to mass market them. I spent weeks testing different ski goggles to ensure the fit, shape and distance worked well with the FS goggles. Some ski goggles were too stiff while others didn't accept the FS goggle correctly. Ultimately, I found a nice mix which allowed for greater comfort, breathability, no light infiltration and an excellent image.

Some flyers will prefer a TV screen or OEM FS goggle, but for the ones who have tried a ski goggle and are looking for the attributes I referenced, they'll never fly without them. Many will be in the hands of flyers in the next few weeks, so I'm sure you'll see some good reviews.

I've asked before, but when wearing "reading glasses" (+2.+3. +4), will the FOV seem larger?

Or you don't do those tests' on your OWN $85 Ski Mask ?

Flightevolution,

I ordered a goggle set form you a few days ago. Cant wait! I also had a question about the cable you have hooked up to the Doms in the picture. Where can I get one? It looks like it would be perfect for the GS setup.

BTW
The goggle's look awesome

The Doms come with a cable that does power and video in one, least both of mine did

dpinkerton

Mine did as well, but they are not nearly long enough. Do you just extend the cable? If so can you recommend what kind of cable to do the extension? I guess the cable in the pic looks like a manufactured cable.

Thanks again

Thanks, I'm sure you'll love them. The Dominators come with a long (roughly 8') "AV" cable which has a 2.1mm barrel connector for power. That's what I use with the Mobile Backpack Ground Station, which we will be selling shortly. Using that long AV cable gives you good separation between the video and UHF signals. ; )

I'll be testing the Predators next week for fitment. Based on what I can see, I believe all the eye cups are the same size on the Dom's, Pred's and Att's so I'm sure hoping they will fit and I won't have to do another template. If I do need another template, it might take me a few weeks. We'll market the other ski goggles for the Pred's and Att's, when available.

due to the varying needs of the users which we didn't want to take the risk on.

Received my goggle mod from FliteEvolution on Saturday. Easy to snap onto the Dominators, and then press into the frame. Comfortable, adjustable, zero light leaks in. A simple concept done very well. Flew with them yesterday at lunch, worked great.

I had been using my own thing with a motorcycle goggle frame, zip ties, black tape, and foam. It worked..... but this is much nicer.

Here are my thoughts.

Pros
-simple, easy and perfect for a lazy person like me
-Look great
-comfortable
-reasonable price
-no more fogging (hell yeah!)
-if you wear reading glasses, you are good to go

Cons
-looks like im looking through a tube and in the back seat of a theater
-(possible fix, when goggles are worn a bit more and the foam areas compress to my face, I believe the picture will improve.)
-white goggles are still hot in the sun (that's life)
-not "completely" dark inside but overall more enjoyable to wear than original Dominators by far. Side note-what little light I could see wasnt an issue when flying.
-(possible fix, use sugru to seal the goggles to the insert and the insert to the actual goggle which will make it a permanent mod. plan on trying this in the future if the above fix works out.)

Overall, I'm happy with the goggles and hope to be completely satisfied once (and if) the googles compress and conform to my face to improve the "theater" experience. This is my story and I'm sticking to it. Updates to follow.

What is "Sugru"? is that some sort of hot glue?
Thank you for the review! :-)

p.s.
I plan to tryout some 'reading glasses' with mine. (+2, +3 power)
to minimize the backseat theater feeling:)
They are cheap at CVS, RiteAid, Walgreens ~$3-$5.

They fit really well in the ski goggles just about no light.
But I have a really big head. My IPD is on the very edge of my predators these goggles decrease the IPD since the fatsharks are further away from your face.
I tried to return them but they said since they are so small all sales final. So I sold them on RCG.

I just recieved them not happy at all. This mask only works for people with small heads. When you have a larger head they don't fit at all and are useless. When I contacted flite evolution about it I got this response:
"We only sell one goggle. A few have said it is too small for their face, however the majority say they fit great. Some users have reduced the foam or widened the lens holes to change the fitment."

Would have been nice if they would have put that as a disclaimer on their site. This goggle costed me 50$ + 25$ shipping + 40$ import taxes so a bit expensive just to gamble with. I already emailed them back again "if it is my problem". Let's see how good there customer support/after sales is. Appearently reading from there e-mail reply this is a known problem.

We're sorry to hear that you are unhappy with them. We have quite a few users and would not define them as having small heads and or faces. It's probably not the overall size of the head or face that matters, but the shape. This can vary greatly as wells as users expectations. We'd expect you could sell them in your local market and not lose much money.

I did have to modify mine for them to fit properly. At this price, I would say just get the OTG goggles from amazon/ebay since you're most likely going to have to modify them - it'll cost half for the same result.

The main problem is how the foam gets in the picture easily, not the distance per say. They're just not well centered, somehow. I would expect that if the image was slightly higher (or the image closer to the eyes of course), this would fit 90% of the people. Right now i see it fit 0% of the people, since the goggles will move a little as you fly and no matter what, you won't have the full picture until you mod them.

There are alot of these goggles out in the market with mostly positive remarks. I think some people will want to modify them a bit to fit the way they would like and frankly, they might not fit everyone. If you ski or ride dirt bikes, you know that there are lots of different styles and designs to choose from. Some fit, feel right and some don't. It wasn't easy for me to come up with a goggle that fit the Fat Shark mold and provided the comfort, darkness, fit and usability that was expected for FPV. I think I did a pretty good job and I'm sorry for the folks that aren't happy or just want to bash the product. This is a small business (for the time being), so profits are minimal and I can't afford to return items, cover shipping charges etc. All sales are final and that is listed on my website. Maybe in the future I can offer something different.

I have never had the foam be a problem with visibility but I suppose that could happen. I also have never had them move on me during flight, so I don't understand that remark. I tried offering an OTG goggle but the shape of an OTG is entirely different and doesn't fit the Fat Shark frame mold at all. Someone give it a shot and if you find a solution, I would be happy to bring that goggle to market and give you credit for the design.

In the meantime, lets try and respect the ones attempting to make a difference.

Having criticism over a product is a mark of disrespect since when?

The goggles move like any other unless you're perfectly still. That's fine. And indeed some people might find some goggles more or less conformable.
However, the amount of vision you get in these changes if they're adjusted to the millimeter to your face. It's not about comfort or shape. You need to have your eyes perfectly aligned because there is only a couple millimiters of free space between the edge of the dominator's screen and the goggle's screen. Simple as that!

Hmm. Very informative concerning the product, performance and also themanufacturer's character. I was considering these but think now I will passsince the distance from lens to eye seems to be the overwhelming issue amongstusers. One size does not fit all. <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>

The hobbyist will always appreciate innovation, but with new ideas andproducts comes criticism which can only help (if constructive) to improve theproduct and make it more appealing to the masses. <o:p></o:p>

The kit could include maybe three templates so the end usercan pick the best for his/her needs and/or a sunken template that essentiallyplaces the FS lens closer to the eye. Food for thought. <o:p></o:p>

FliteEvolution
22nd May 2013, 07:25 PM
Constructive criticism is healthy and appreciated, but some of the general forum bashing, personal attacks and exaggeration we see on the sites doesn't go over well so I will retort on occasion.

The design of the FS goggles doesn't allow for much flexibility in attaching to it which means the distance to/from the goggles is hard to adjust. That distance is also a challenge as peoples eyes are at different distances. This is probably why no one has ever mass produced a goggle like this before.

If you have had one of our UAV's, you would know that we strive to build the best product possible and have very high standards. In an attempt to provide a better fit for some users, we have an idea:

I have heard of a few people wanting the FS goggle to sit higher on the ski goggle and we are considering another lens which would do that, maybe 2-4cm higher. We would want to include two (2) lenses in the kit because I don't know how we could recommend one lens over the other. The 2nd lens would increase the price of the kit. We might be able to get by with a $10 increase which would put the goggles at $60 instead of $50. For those who already have our goggles, we could offer the 2nd lens at a discount.

Your comments on a 2-4cm higher FOV would assist us in determining this new lens design and eye port location.

FYI the issue I had with mine is they sit too high in the goggles for me so moving them higher would have made it worse. The bottom 20% of the screen was blocked by the foam unless I wore them low on my face with the goggles basically on the tip of my nose squeezing it shut.

The build is very nice and simple to use but the goggles simply didn't fit my face. So it goes, you have to try some things and they don't all work for everyone. Selling them on RCG if anyone is interested.

Thanks for the feedback. I don't think there is any way for me to lower the FS goggle on the lens because it's already almost resting on the nose bridge of the Scott frame. I am looking into another goggle frame which is larger and might fit more users. I was originally going to use this frame but it's $15 more expensive and I wanted to keep the price of this goggle at $50. If I decide to use this new frame, I'll have to increase the price of the goggle and call this version 2. I'm just not sure if a $65 goggle will dissuade buyers...

Honestly? I bought the version one.
A bit tight but is okay.
If you do that and the dom hd get released I would even buy a v2 for the hd doms and use my current doms for passengers.
Go for it!

VitaminJ,
Try it with some cheapie reading glasses (+2, +3, +4).
The image is even a little bit bigger!
(I bought mine at Walgreens for ~$5.00).

These Ski Goggles are comfy as heck, but the distance that the Dominators are at increases from your eyes,
thus smaller and smaller Video image.

Give or take I guess:-)

Nevermind. I can confirm that they do. With my big head, they sit a bit far away making a smaller field of view though. Do-able.

Are there any updates on whether or not a new goggle set will be used for people with larger faces? I've had these goggles for sometime now and use them exclusively over other goggles because they are more comfortable/less fogging, the unfortunate trade off is that I still have the feeling of looking at the screen through a paper tube. I figured after some time, the goggles would compress down a bit but that has not happened. Great product, just not great for me. Looking forward to any info.

+1 on that. I love them too but my big noggin makes the image far away from my eyes. Less immersive if you will. Very comfortable and convenient though. I tried both the attitudes and the doms. They both snap right in and don't fog. Maybe a redesigned lens template with a recessed lens plate on a wider goggle? Dunno, just brainstorming out loud. I took Vitamin J's suggestion and trimmed the foam some which helped a bit. The eyecups are still by far a better image for my melon. So close! For some it fits the bill so I'm not knocking it at all.

Thanks for the note. We've looked into another goggle which is a bit larger, however it has more foam padding, so there's a trade-off. We have found that cutting down the foam is the best way to "personalize" your goggle for your face. We might transfer over to this other goggle, but the price would have to increase as well, which I'm not excited about. We'll certainly keep you posted if we have another goggle available.

I'm considering these for my FS Attitudes. I swear my eyeballs sweat!!!!. My goggles are constantly fogging, so much so that the guys I fly with are always busting my chops, "Hey guys guess what" "What?" " I'm fogging, what else is new"

As mentioned above in one of the previous post, these will hopefully help with breathability. Also the cool thing about dirtbike/ski goggles is that you can get a fan that inserts into the top of the foam and evacuates any moisture in the goggle.

Well I got mine in. The installation went easy with my FS Attitudes. Unfortunately like some previously have mentioned they put the image further away from your eyes giving the appearance of looking through a tube. All corners of the image are rounded. I cut back some of the foam, but still could not get my eyes closer to the image to get rid of the "looking through a tube" affect.

I just received my goggles and I am so excited. I have Fat Shark Dominators and the trim piece went on well. However when putting it into the mask, I had a bit of trouble. They are put together now but has a bit of a gap in between the mask and goggles which is letting in some light.

Is there a possibility that I have not put it together correctly, a trick or technique, or expected behavior?

And before I forget, thank you for making something so awesome. Doesn't it seem funny that some of today's inventions are fairly simple, yet enable us to do or have exactly what we want?

Thanks in advanced,
Michael

Thank you for the quick reply. It is between the goggles and the mask, *the latter*
and I imagined I may have to find a way to seal it up. BTW, the little bit of light is by far acceptable in comparison to the goggles before this mask and the discomfort and the ring around the eyes.

Yes, as our system via the website doesn't update when orders are shipped. Check your paypal account and you should see the shipping and tracking info.

So been reading through the posts and I get the feeling that the version that is sold currently doesn't allow you to wear regular corrective glasses. Is that correct?

No, you can wear corrective glasses with these goggles. They need to fit inside the goggles so they should be on the small side of corrective frames.

Good solution for people who dont want to wear contacts, but its a tight fit with glasses.

Tight fit is better than squiting (due to astigmatism) and trying to use those freaking diopter inserts, then add the crappy fit of the stock eyecups :-)

I tried them with the V2's. Unfortunately can't get a good fit. They were a perfect fit with the V1's but I'm having issues with the edges on the V2's not matter how I try to adjust them.

They dont work on the V2's as they cause edge focus issues due to the eyes being further away, I have a brand new set here if anyone want to make me an offer.

I ordered a pair not to long ago and was going to work on them this weekend. I didn't see any documentation in the box and was wondering if there were any instructions online?

I assume I will have to pop the clear lens out of the ski goggles and insert the blackened ones into the ski goggles? How do the Fatsharks attach to that?

Also, I see in this thread that there is a "hallway/back of theater" effect for some with the goggles. Is there a remedy to this? I wear prescription glasses so additional reading glasses wont work.

Thanks for your help
