Any one eyed FPV pilots here?

I only have vision in one eye, and I'm wondering if FPV would be a good road to go down. Thinking that flying via a monitor will eliminate the need for depth perception. Does that sound right?

LoS sUAS AP/V is not a crime
Sounds right. Also my googles show the same image to both eyes so.....
And because my googles are a little wide for my eyes I line up one good eye and ignore the other most the time anyway.

Good Luck and have fun.

Stereoscopic vision is quite useless in FPV so it should be no problem for you.

We have one in our flying group. And he actually came second in a race last year!
So it will work for you as well, go for it.

As long as you can get a clear image edge to edge with your one good eye behind
the lens and display, goggles work just fine. I know. I only have one good eye. The other
provides some ambience and that's about it.

Our group also has a one-eyed flier who also wears glasses for his good eye. He's doing all right..

Been blind in my left eye since birth. Headplay unit gives me plenty of viewing area.

If it flies, I can crash it.

Stereoscopic vision requires both eyes. But the image in an FPV headset is generally not stereoscopic (there are some 3D setups, but most are the exact same image in both eyes). So if you only use one eye you see exactly the same information as someone using two eyes, it will not make any difference at all to your ability to fly competitively.
