    Sun Burned my Dom HD Screens. What can I do?

    All answers welcome, but I am directing the question to Fatshark. I let someone look through my Dominator HDs, and unbeknownst to me, when he took them off while I was flying LOS, he let the sun shine directly into the lenses and now they are totally messed up. There is a huge yellow splotch right in the middle of both lenses/screens. What if anything can be done about that? I know it is not covered under warranty, but can they be repaired? If so, would it be cheaper than just buying new ones?

    Thanks for the help.

    Yeah, it's like it cost me $550 to let someone see what it's like to fly FPV.

    How long did it take? Or rather how long were they exposed to the sun?
