Better lenses for the Eyetops

Recommended Posts

I thought folks might be interested in seeing a hack I did to the Eyetop video glasses to put better lenses on them.

For the uninitiated, the Eyetops are video glasses that display your video downlink (or any other video source for that matter) on a single eyepiece off to the side of the right eye. They allow you to fly your aircraft visually while at the same time keeping an eye on what is being downlinked.

Hi Matt,

I started with the dremel cutting wheel (those infuriatingly fragile ones) for the gross cuts, then I switched to narrow diameter grinding wheel to make the final trims.

I went to Home Depot, picked up the exact glasses you have there (on the right)

for $10, came home and the cutting took all of 20 minutes! They look SOOO much better than the stock lense....

Thanks Bill!
