RC Logger Pilot Video Sunglasses

High-Definition Camera Onboard.

Splash

Record your aircraft in flight. Look good in the process.

While not the "video glasses" most fpv pilots are used to seeing, these sunglasses record video through a 1280x720 HD 5mp CMOS camera mounted on the bridge of the glasses frame. The sunglasses feature one-button-recording for quick and easy use, and the polarized sunglasses lenses make them functional while flying.

The Pilot Video Sunglasses have an A/V out for connecting them to the electronics of your choice, and 4gb of internal memory for audio and video record times around the 70-minute range. The 140-degree FOV allows for wide viewing as well.

Here's a raw video of the Pilot Video Sunglasses in action:

Definitely something an FPV pilot would never use.

This looks really cool.....no finicky hat cam setup needed. I know the camera would be limited, but for someone who just wants to be able to make simple videos of their flights without having to have someone holding a camera it looks like just the ticket.

Ya, that's great for a LoS pilot.
An FPV pilot will either have video goggles on their head, or will be looking down at an LCD
screen most of the time. In either case, these goggles are of virtually no value.

Well, there's one opinion.

On the other hand, and another opinion, these could be tremendously helpful for those of us who are tired of wrestling with hatcams, and the inherent alignment issues of same. Put em on, turn em on, and instant recording with the plane actually in the entire video. But useless when it comes to FPV.

Missed price on them, tho.

I think we're on the same page. It just struck me as ironic that this item was posted
only in the one forum where is of the least use to its occupants.
I can think of uses for it in just about every other RC forum but this one.

Agreed.

Why they referenced FPV is, to be honest, beyond me. Maybe they hit the wrong forum button....

I wrote this little news piece. Technically, these glasses could be considered first person view for your face. I think it will be OK in the FPV section.

Ah. That, there, is a new way of looking (pun intended) at First Person View.

Still like the idea - just wish they were priced more along the lines of a good 808 camera.

I like the idea for taking some video of close in flying and posting to Youtube. I think they will sell well since they are under $100. I found these other ones that may have better specs but are twice the price. I will look more into both of these.

I'll come back for another tuppence worth, the FOV will disappoint some, I no longer use the Go-Pro on my head as the FOV is too large, you can't see any aircraft, the narrow FOV cameras in the video work best and it is why hats and glasses are good, just remember to keep your eyes fixed and track by turning your head.

Here's a video demonstrating that

For whatever this is most commonly called PoV, rather than FPV.
