    Hi Guys, I just picked up some Fatshark goggles the other day and tried them out last night for the first time. I noticed near the end of the 12min flight I was getting some mild signs of motion sickness, after the flight still felt them for about an hour after, today I did 3 more flights so far, all over 10 min. Each one seemed to get a little better, but I was wondering if it affects any of you at all and if so do you have any ways to combat it or can you get used to it or overcome it?

    Thanks
    Lee

    Only time I'm even remotely bothered is in gusty wind when the quad is bouncing around a lot, otherwise not a problem. My cure? I cheat, engage GPS position hold with altitude hold and take the goggles off for long enough to sync my eyes to my brain and then get back to the business of flying... ;)

    I was totally bothered by the fatsharks. I sold them immediately realizing I would never be able to fly a pricey toy like this being blind folded. It does mess with your head a bit too.

    I've never had a problem........ if it doesn't go away and you want a fix, try ginger based motion sickness pills or them wrist pressure point type. Both work on my wife when we fish deep sea.

    this might even help once you landed if you felt sick

    I got this the first couple of FPV flights. The more you fly the better it gets.
