DIY EYES.
Prescription lenses for your goggles.
Fortunately goggle manufactures have made provision for adding corrective lenses to their product.
But thats about it.
So with sight issues as bad as mine i have no option . Propper lenses are a must .
2 options , purchase or produce.
Produce.
Take 1 pair of old specs and cut up.
Sounds easy as.
It is.
The tip is that standard electrical tape is the same size as the factory diopters .
Put your old glasses on and place a strip of tape accros the glasses in line with where you look.
remove lens from frame wrap several layers of tape on both sides of the lens ,to protect it.
take a dremel and cut and trim untill it slides into the slots
do not forget to lable left right and whitch way is up..
Cheers

I posted this because i know the issues and with this aproach a good result is usually had.
Those whom rely on their glasses will get it

This guide will walk you through the process of building a micro long range quad capable of flying 8-30 minutes and more than 4km. The build is moderately difficult, but with the right tools and steady hands..

Until recently GoPros were delegated to larger quads. A typical GoPro weighs around 125g and we've only recently begun to mount them on 3" cinewhoops. Even that is a stress on the motors. Now we've got the "GoPro Lite". Remove the battery, displays and casing and you're left with a small, lightweight board and sensor. Wrap it in protective TPU casing and you've got a 30g micro GoPro.
