    I am sure this is old tech but with the I1 makes me think about it but I am sure it will be $$$.

    Holy boogers that thing is big. Not a bad idea though. I'd be down.

    Preorder is at $250. And yes it's trivial tech, just a basic LCD in a foam box with a video receiver.

    720p @ 72° will look awfully pixelated. I need 4K to be happy at that FOV :)

    I reckon they'll be alright. $249 is pretty cheap for what it is.

    And if you get the optional external roof-mounted antennas you can fly from your living room couch. :D

    I got a chance to use these at the CFL FPV meet to fly my i1 and it was really, really awesome. I felt like I was in the quad. They were very comfortable and lighter than you would expect in my 15 minutes using them. I have a pair on pre-order because in my opinion, you just can't beat that price for the immersion you get. They will definitely help the camera op see the picture way better in bright summer sun vs. a tablet with a sunshade.

    I know they look dorky as hell, but personally I don't care.

    Would you possibly know how much time you get out of the battery that comes with the kit? and how long to recharge it? AND AND AND can you buy spare batteries?
    Thanks!

    So I don't know, but looking at the Headplay thread on FPVLAB forums, I saw a user post this

    "The specs are 340mA draw and it comes with a 1100 mAh battery. So 2.5 hours to be safe?"
    And Range Video support has said

    "the battery plug will be 2.1mm barrel plug. Battery charger included in the kit."
    That's about as much as I know. Thread on FPVLAB forums here

    I just bought a pair. Order #167!
    If I don't like them, I'll use them as stubby holders.

    Great update! Thanks for sharing. Now all I have to do is wait... until June... because I ordered so late... unlike certain people here.. who shall remain nameless.

    Don't want to mention SirNikolas' name, 'cause he's kind'a touchy.

    Nice! Hopefully one of those red ones will be heading my way soon. Good to see these finally on the verge of shipping.
