I don't know anything about the quality. But you have to ask yourself what your anticipated application will be. If you are simply using a video downlink for framing AP shots, then it might work good. If you're using them to fly FPV, then I don't think you'll be happy with them because they won't give a very immersive experience. For FPV, you need something completely enclosed where all external light is blocked out.

FPV = no good

Framing shots = good.

I have a pair that my camera person (wife) uses and she loves them. That's about all they are good for, framing AP shots.
