probably not going to bother with the lcd based on johan's experience, it looks like a pain to use!
i followed that post you mentioned and came across this post which says you should use 2.4ghz video are you going to switch to 2.4ghz video? If so what will you use for RC?

It seems like 2.4GHz for video is the way to go, both for practical and legal reasons. Unfortunately you can't use 2.4GHz radio then.
I should have some more info on allowed frequencies from ICASA within the next few days. I managed to get hold of someone in the right position to advise us on this.

An LCD screen can work if you're willing to carry the extra gear around and make a sunscreen for it. Some people even drag a TV to the field and mount it in their car or van. Nuts I tell you, nuts. :no: What's great about this, though, is you have a big screen and others can watch with you.
In the end it depends on what you're willing to spend, what you're willing to carry to the field, and if you want to keep the entertainment to yourself or share it with others.

No time for a minute of silence, there's too much other things to do, like work on other FPV projects!

I am looking for HUD goggles as I still like to keep LOS but I also want to have a look at what my camera is viewing.

Has anyone seen reasonably priced goggles like that, that can connect to a Fatshark system.

More than likely have the blue screen "feature" enabled. They not designed for FPV..
They are the same as these
http://digitalmartians.storenvy.com/products/413210-martianvision-martian-goggles

There is an outlet in Roodepoort they said they will have stock Friday.. I want to try get a demo

My Screen I am using at the moment has blue screen too, but seems to only blue screen after video/static is completely illegible.. So not all blue screen enabled deviced are bad

Becareful with these though. I see two versions. The one is much lower resolution.. 480X320 or something..
