The principle was easy. I use two identical cameras looking staight front and transmitting the two pictures on two differents channels.
I decided to modify my I-vision 922 goggle by incorporating a second video module (Kopin) inside the goggle and connect the second display to it. I did not want to pay for a new goggle so i bought defect goggle from Rangevideo at half price, only the control box was defect. I also received another Kopin module for free the weeks after...
I ordered from Aeropix one KX131/ transmitter/ receiver. I will run the two tx and cameras with one 4.8Vdc Ni-mh battery, so i don't need regulators or capacitors on the tx. I also did not install the channel selector making them quite small.
So I received everything last week. I hate tripod and i prefer installing a second receiver on my goggle cap, I dismantled my goggle cap to install the two receivers on the cap sides, looking like a Martian now
I made differents test and i can say the 3D effect is stunning. I see clearly objects in front of others, building at severals hundred feets in front appear clearly distant from the sky. No doubt in my head 3D vision will be a big improvement in FPV flying.
I made test with two transmitter close togheter or two receivers close togheter, and I did not find any problem, I will try two tx close (6 inc.) in flight. My intention is to put the two tx on each wing at half distance on the wing, transmitters install under the wings with the antennas passing true the wing to point up.
I would like eventually to interlace the two cameras signals to reduce complexity, but at the relatively low cost of equipements today, my way is interesting too. It allow to have full 30 frame per eyes, interlace will give only 15 fps per eye.
I will try it in flight tomorrow if the winds are not too strong.
