Hi Rob,

Pleased to see you are now in Sponsor Gate.

I would like to buy a ski google kit to suit my Fat Shark Aviator and dominator goggle.

A hole is needed for the aerial to come through and another hole for the av in / out plug.

Rob asked me to translate to see if that would get the idea across better, I don't have Fatsharks myself and I'm not exactly sure what the goal is here, but here goes:

Get these motor cycle goggles (http://www.ebay.com/itm/270834096502...WNX:IT&vxp=mtr) on eBay.

You'll need some black sealant (something similar to silicon caulk maybe?)
Apply some grease to the Fatshark goggles and hold/press the motor goggles against them and lay down a bead of whatever sealant you're using.
The next day, after the sealant has hardened pull the Fatsharks out and you'll have a nice edge around the motor goggles that you can press your Fatsharks into.

Rob,

Sorry but I think I am changing my mind about modified goggles all together. The problem with a Ski mask or motor goggles based video goggles is the time it takes to take the mask off.

I attach a link to a website I have found that sell V. Very expensive goggles - $18,000 would you believe, BUT the design of some of them is brilliant - a 'flip down' type. This would be the ultimate solution in my opinion.

http://www.vrealities.com/hmd.html

Any thoughts on this Rob ??

FPV-PLASTICS
1st July 2012, 01:08 PM
To put aski goggle on top of your head
That cost you a second

Never hear about that. Lol

If you can buy the goggle from your link
You can buy 10 fpv plane s

And landing plane whit goggle s on
If you distroy a plane
You thake nextone
Till you lurn to landing whit goggle on

Lol

1st July 2012, 02:39 PM
If anything, I think modified goggles would make it easier to go from LoS to goggles or vice versa.
You can put the goggles on, slide them up and rest them on your forehead to launch and just slide them down when you're in the air. The elastic band keeps them in place at all times.
Only FPV crash that I've had that actually broke a plane was when I couldn't get my unmodded MyVu goggles on quick enough and lost control and went into a nice death spiral. Would not have happened if I had had them modded into a ski mask.

Is it possible to think of a better solution, such as a flip-down visor thing? Sure! Is it cost-effective and worth the hassle? Apparently not if it costs $18K. :-)
There's a reason a lot of people use ski goggle mods, they work.

gtaero
1st July 2012, 03:55 PM
I don't disagree with either of the previous 2 posts, but:

@nkkromhof
trying to "slide down" ski goggles OVER a pair of spectacles one handed, whilst still controlling the plane with the other hand seems to me to be very risky. Slightest 'snag' on my spectacles, etc. and I've probably got a crash. Similarly trying one handed "slide up" a ski mask OVER a pair of spectacles on - say an approach for landing - NOT for me thankyou.

@rob
I wasn't suggesting BUYING anything from the linked website - just saying I like some of the "flip down" designs.

my write is bad i now,,hard to write but it,s oke

btw

if you have to control the plane just before landing???? you fly a jet or 3D plane

my skywalker came into the wind,,,i can thake off my goggle,,,,light a smoke,,, and control rc for landing [ lol ]

Hi Rob!

I would really love to see A skimask-aviator conversion.
The only thing i'm worry about is that you need a big skimask to fit the aviators on top of them.

I dont like it to have such a big mask on my had, so it would be great if you can find a small skimask that's big enough to fit the aviator.

Do you need some pictures with some messurements from my aviator?
You can also reply in Dutch if you like..

Hi guys,

i talked to rob the other day and ordered me some moto-goggles from ebay.

I recieved them yesterday and went on to build my dominators into it.
Really easy to go.
Fitting really awesome and distance to eye is same as before. ;) (removed the eyecups)
I used black silicone to close everything up.

Due to weather i could not test enough.
But first test was really nice. Fitting is awesome.
Motor goggles close sun light perfect.
I fixed the dominator to the motor goggles with hot glue (top, bottom and the sides...not all the way round).
Then i placed some tape inside the motor goggles to close the "holes" and took black silicone to close them from outside.
as soon as silicone dryed up i removed the tape inside.

Will test once more today.

Best regards

Hi guys,

quick update :

went flying today and now tested the dominator mod in one full flight (17min)
wearing the googles is really comfortable. Inside its as dark as night.
Only little issue i had was a bit fogging after 5 minutes.
I thought of getting "anti fogging fluid/spray" to handle the mirrors.

Any ideas ?

Best regards
Kalle
