You can pick up a half decent monitor and vrx for not a lot of money Allan. It doesn't have to be goggles to get started. Plus, you are welcome to borrow mine in any official races that I'm not in and you are Wink

Just watch out for soft focus around the edges on those goggles Allan. The mk1 version of them were notorious for it, the main reason why I went with the dominator v2's instead..

I'm looking at the Dominator HD V2's which seem to have amongst the least spherical aberration

Just got to set the linkages to the right length, do a terrible paintjob, and wait for a new rx and micro vtx to be delivered, and mine is ready to race. They are dinky little things these, I'm expecting them to be a handful to fly!

Ah yes I see LOS will be a little more difficult with right and left being reversed when coming towards the pilot whereas with FPV one's always in the driving seat left being left and right being right. I've cracked the code now Wink
