  1. EDIT June-03-2015 / UPDATE: Had my first flights with the prototype DiY 3D Printed FPV Goggles and it was awesome. Fantastic image quality, better than anything I've flown with before. The huge 70° field of view (FOV) is incredible. Here's a 3D rendering of the DiY goggles: The 3D printer STL files and build instructions are published here: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2429042 THE PROJECT BLOG STARTS HERE: Over the years I've made several DiY FPV goggles using small LCD monitors. Material choices have been cardboard, foam board, duct tape, snow ski goggles, and so on. Ignoring the primitive look of my creations, the weak link was always the disappointing video quality of the LCD displays I tried. I wanted a video image that looked better than the commercially made FPV glasses, but at best I could only achieve the same (and sometimes worse) resolution. The monitors I tried all had excellent advertised specs, but in reality were nowhere near the visual resolution the China suppliers claimed them to be. But recently that issue seems to have turned around and now there are some affordable 5 to 7 inch LCD monitors that have the pixel resolution I want. So it's time to step up my game and create some nice looking FPV goggles that work better than anything I've worn before. I now have a 3D printer and AutoDesk's 123D CAD program. My goal is to create the world's best DiY 3D printed FPV goggles. I can dream, can't I? First on the list was to choose a small LCD monitor that had trustworthy resolution specs and good resistance to the lost signal "blue-screen" issue. After reviewing data sheets I took the gamble and ordered this low cost 7-inch IPS LCD panel / board set: http://www.aliexpress.com/snapshot/6656997443.html?orderId=67151909787970 (See updated note at bottom of this post) The monitor is on its way to me. Until I test it out I have no idea if it will acceptable. Fingers are crossed. UPDATE / EDIT Oct-04-2015: The cost of the LCD kit from the aliexpress supplier has substantially increased, so it is no longer a valid choice. But there are other suppliers for a LCD kit that has the VST29.01B control board and N070ICG LCD panel. For example, this one came up in a search over at eBay (but I have not tried it): http://www.ebay.com/itm/HDMI-VGA-AV-Audio-USB-Controller-board-7inch-N070ICG-LD1-1280x800-IPS-lcd-panel-/361309530237?hash=item541fb9e87d If you find another choice that has the correct control board (VST29.01B) and LCD panel (N070ICG) then be sure to compare its keypad board to the one I used. If it has a different layout then my keypad enclosure part will not fit it.
