Fatshark Comfort Mod no Ski Mask needed

Just purchased a set of Attitude SD. I wasn't too happy with the eye cups. I wear contact lenses for distance. I used some black plastic from a school notebook cover, fairly thick but flexible material. I carefully measured and made a paper template first. The plastic is cut to fit tightly in the grooves for the eye cups. Cut the eye holes a little smaller then needed then trim to get a nice snug fit. If cut right the plastic will clip right around the grooves all the way around.

I used some temporary pieces of foam. I will pickup some 1/2" adhesive backed foam tomorrow at the hardware store. They feel real comfortable now. This is still a work in progress. I will be trimming the plastic edges down further. Plus I can use the original strap.

I will be adding foam to the sides also.

The eye position is close enough to the lenses to get a good clear view.

If the plastic is thick enough it provides good support for the foam.
And this mod is removable if needed.

I got the idea from this picture below.

I did not find the fs eyecups very comfortable at first either. However, after playing with positioning and the strap tension, and just basically getting used to them, they felt great after a week or two.

Best thing about the fs eycups is that they do not let any light in when flying in bright conditions outdoors.

I liked the idea of eye cups at first, but after I bought dominators v1 i was disappointed. The eyecups are falling every time I put the goggles on. I've managed to lose one really fast, good I bought together with them a pair of cups to mod my base, which never happened.

That's why in next future I will have mine modded but I am planning to use kinda memory foam.

Now I like the idea of one piece eye cup on Skyzone3D, but don't know how it feels and if it is any better...

Use your fingernail to press in both tabs on the eye cups all the the way in till they lock
