Dave,

Thanks for the info! I was actually referring to a 1:1 image, so that distance & speed appear to be scaled correctly in the video, rather than zoomed-out like things appear in wide-angle lenses. I'd like to fly FPV through the goggles & have things appear life-size - so that if I were flying at 50 MPH, it would look like 50 MPH in the goggles. Or if I were flying at 200' AGL, it would look like 200' AGL in the goggles. Or if I were coming in on approach & there happened to be an obstacle to clear, I could accurately judge the distance & height. From what you've told me, I gather that it is at least impractical, if not impossible for this application.

Joel
