Iphone 5 to Fatshark Goggles - My solution
After spending a chunk of cash on a shiny new set of Attitude goggles I wanted to get more use from them than just a bit of weekend FPVing. I looked for a way to connect my iphone 5 to them for movie watching but it was more difficult than I anticipated.
The iPhone 5 lightning connector supports digital video out via an apple hdmi adapter. The Fatsharks only support composite in.
So here is my solution:
Apple Lightning AV adapter: http://store.apple.com/ca/product/MD...apter?fnode=45
which connects to:
Short (1.5 foot) HDMI cable
which connects to
Mini HDMI to Composite convertor
which is powered by:
Anker slim portable power pack
which connects to
The mini HDMI to Composite convertor can be Velcro fixed to the rechargeable power pack and the short cables can be neatly ziptied up so all you have is one small self contained device about the size of a couple of iPHones stacked together.
You connect the video cable supplied with your fatsharks to the composite out of the convertor.
You now have a means to watch movies, youtube videos, mirror your iphone 5 screen to your fatsharks. The rechargeable power pack can also charge the iphone via its usb port for extended run time.
You can also use this to get video from your laptop/pc to your fatsharks for FPV simulator practice if your laptop/pc has hdmi out.
You can also use the Apple AV adapter to connect your iPhone to your hdmi TV to mirror the screen onto a large screen.
Total cost: $133
