I think this is great and you guys should order who are sitting on the fence for FPV. I built the set that comes from UK with the foam pieces and ordered the 3.5 LCD from ebay. Those do NOT blue screen. Very good cheap option for dabbling in FPV. I can always spend more later. This looks even better. But it has a 16:9 screen, and without a 16:9 camera that can do the anamorphic squeeze, the image will look stretched if you want to use the full panel. So you will use the 4:3 mode to get correct image. So my 3.5 image is essentially the same thing. We need 16:9 cameras to support this. 16:9 is superior in every way (human vison is more an oval, not a square), that's why HDTV's are all 16:9.

This is the monitor I have and it does not blue screen. The one with the chrome trim. Many seller have it here in the USA.

It would appear that this is the appeal of the Quanum job, the thing is getting one of these little screens (as mentioned in the video) that does not blue screen seems near impossible. HK got a special batch done.

I am pretty sure the trick is only the firmware.

Firmware and a screenbuffer to show a static image.
Someone mentioned a DVR in line with a normal monitor would do the trick too, but I'm sure it will add latency.

How about just adding a simple $15 OSD? And running the video through that then through the monitor? It will display the voltage of your GS as well!

Yes you can add any OSD you want, just plug the video out from the camera to the osd and from the OSD to the video transmitter (most OSD's work like this, if not all)

The resolution ends up with:

It sound quite a bad resolution

Just order mine too .. let see if this is going to be better then my cheap old hobbyking goggle that cost be 80$ quite some time ago

I'm surprise that with this low resolution anybody could prefer these goggle then the traditional one with "full" composite video resolution ... like the guy from HobbyKing say in the video, that he now prefer to use these
