TopSky Prime 1S FPV Goggles [Working] 😮 Caddx Turtle V2 Water Damage Tip 😅 [4:3 Progression] (6 min 40 sec)


I had a scare when my Caddx Turtle V2 stopped working after a slight crash into some wet grass. It froze on the splash screen but after drying for an hour it worked again. Unfortunately, it has happened since but worked again when drying out. I hope this doesn't shorten the life of my camera 😮

After a terrible start I am finally getting some use out of my TopSky Prime! They are not perfect but for me they are a slight upgrade (only in the sun) from my Eachine VRD2 Pro Box Goggles. Most importantly I love the feel of two screens rather than one and flying in 4:3 rather than 16:9.

For some reason I can see detail much better with the TopSky Prime s1 than the box goggles but they are still definitely beginner fpv goggles (less pixels). I have no problem with focus as I have flipped the lenses (link rcg) but do think I will upgrade to a pair of Fatsharks when I have the cash. I have a problem seeing when the sun is not out as the image is too dark. I will play with the settings some more next year.

Although the switching mechanism for diversity is not working, the reception from the right antenna on the TopSky Prime works as well as the Eachine with diversity.

Overall, I think I will stick with the TopSky Prime 1S until a new release comes out or I can afford a pair of Fatshark Dominators.

Tip: If you have water damage to your Caddx Turtle do not despair. Leave it to dry and then hopefully it should reboot. I was worried that I would have to reflash the firmware but I got lucky.

TIPS:

Topsky Prime 1s diopter mod : focus issue solved for me
As well as the "lens flip mod", I taped the battery to the outside of the goggles so the diopters would slide the screen all the way back

Lens Flip: If removing the battery is not enough then you can flip the lenses with a flat head screwdriver

These goggles do not work with the HGLRC XJB 145 Stack (TX20 VTX)
