So ive been hunting for a replacement for my horrible fatsharks wondering what the pros think of these http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/jsp/Product.do?sku=V11H423020#En... , the specs are pretty good and i love the transparent display (perfect for hand launching without losing line of site with the plane in the first few seconds of flight).
i currently have my video feed from my lawmate receiver running through a capture card into my laptop and ive been using the the screen to navigate but i want to go back to goggles im wondering how hard it will be to use the BT-100 as a secondary screen being android there must be someone out there to make an app unless it hasnt already been done, this dude has it controlling an AR parrot , bearing in mind its designed to work with android / iphone so im sure it wouldn't be that complex to write an app to do this http://technabob.com/blog/2012/03/09/epson-moverio-bt-100-parrot-ar...
although its a little different taking a analog signal from lawmate and somehow getting it to the moverio
any ideas would be great , any feed back on whether or not these are worth it would also be great
Just out of curiosity, why were you so unhappy with your fatshark glasses? Was it the dominator or an older model?
i have the fatshark predators the ones with the built in 5.8ghz and lcds , gamma is way to high ( even when turned to the lowest at the camera and the goggles,still looks to bright) one eye keeps cutting out due to the crappy Chinese soldering , and even with 5.8 ghz clover leaf antenna i was only getting about 150m distance before losing signal , oh that was when i had them paired with the immersion rc 600mW 5.8Ghz which should be giving me alot more distance , regardless this is a conversation about goggles and that is why i dont like my fatsharks
Dude, the Epson's Moverio is very intriguing to say the least. Fatshark's make zero sense to me for flying a copter.
Sounds like Moverio does not have a video input by default. That said, Epson has shown a board that will let you input composite video:
I assume though that this would make the trackpad and android part which you're also purchasing redundant.
Hopefully someone makes a similar device that is just the video overlay portion with composite video input.
OR I wonder if it's possible to say attach a MAVlink radio to the Android via like ADK or something and build some type of Augmented reality OSD system.
