Grey if you are going to make a statement like this at least clarify it! Illegal if you don't have a spotter... That's FAA which is USA not sure what your rules are in Canada so I won't make blanket uniformed statements....
My Goggles are on their way to me.. but didn't know about the BT300 until now.. I might have considered ordering them...
Bought a Nexus 7 2.Gen and it works awesome..
Goggles + Nexus (or even just my mobile) will be a fantastic combo.
As many mentioned before I am also sure the Goggles will improve my distance estimation immensely.. and then the gimbal control.. that will be a whole lot of fun
That's +1 for me!I would take the crystal sky but I think the price is pretty steep. I would like to know if the screen is as bright as they claim it is in direct sunlight. One of my biggest complaints with my setup now is screen glare. I have a sunshield that only works marginally and I crank up my brightness all the way on my ipad.
I agree. DJI wouldn't sell them if they were 100% illegal in all circumstances. (law suits) Don't forget they sided with the FAA in the recent court decision regarding registering our drones. At least their PR department did.
Legally if you use googles you are required to have another person as a visual aid..not sure who's going to enforce that, but that's the reg.
thanks for the link this will have to do until I can afford a CSHi, Owen. Below is a link to a good sunshade for your IPad Mini. It works, it fits, and it folds flat. I fit both the sunshade and the Mini in the front pocket of my Mavic Shoulder Bag (it sticks up above the zipper, so you can't close it, but it does fit inside).
BTW, I am also waiting for the Mavic 2, or whatever.

GUYS...Does anyone know if it is possible to record the Crystal screen ( including flight data ) directly onto the Crystal SD card ?
It would be handy to have this option...and still have the Camera only video from the Drone itself !
DJI is making an adapter for the Mavic Pro and Spark. So far, this 3rd party mount is pretty good.I see that B&H Photo is showing the different versions of the Crystalsky (pre order only, don't get too excited). The bad part is, they only show an adapter to attach any of the monitors to a Phantom controller and nothing else for the Mavic.
Really makes me wonder. Will it actually be for us too? I've read the rubber grips in the Mavic controller arms come out to allow phones and tabs with cases so maybe that's how it's going to be mounted. Of course I think most of us would prefer that to maintain the portability aspect. I think however, it may force us to buy the smaller version that is only half as bright as the 2x as bright larger version. Bummer.
On the up side of all of this, because it's still a silver lining in an otherwise dark cloud for me, I'll only be paying half as much and still have a better device than my current one. I hope.
Most of that is all speculation on my part about the compatibility/mounting aspect. Maybe DJI just doesn't have the Mavic adapter ready for sites like B&H to show. I doubt it thought.
Careful with the goggles on the dog might come up and sniff you in the butt
CrystalSky is on order. it will here soonNow that prices have been announced and it appearing likely that the CrystalSky monitor may be compatible with the Mavic Pro (whether it needs a separate mount to fit is still up in the air), which would you rather have?
Some will opt for both as they have different functions, but if you have a budget for one or the other, tell us your preference.
