If you do:

I'm just wondering.

 

If you use your phone WITHOUT a VR app (so, just play a movie) how does it look?

 

If there is a split, do you think that would go away without the plastic divider in the middle? Or is the 'It has Two lenses' the problem?

 

I'm looking into making an FPV headset for some RC stuff; and as a glasses wearer, I have to get custom, to get any good :)

Sort of, but they're still using a VR app, so it's displaying 2 images.

 

With what I'll be doing, I'll only have the single screen.

For what you're wanting to do, is there any benefit to mounting a second camera to provide depth perception?

Nah not really, because I don't have any (well, minimal) depth perception IRL, haha.

I went ahead and just bought one, because $5 from gumtree.

 

It's "Fine" but really not QUITE adequate for what I need. The magnifiers built in DID work, but even with the separator removed I could see double.

 

There's also something really odd about wearing them.

My normal viewing distance for a 5" phone is about 4 inches from my face.

And with the monitor just held in hand, I can do that.

Put that same monitor into a holder, with or without the lens, and I'm crosseyed.

 

That's OK, I'm just seeing what I can do to get away with smaller goggles when I go out flying; I'd love to afford some FatShark goggles, but, you know, glasses.

And while I can get prescription inserts, they change SO often.

 

ah well. Was worth a shot
