Re: [FlyingRhenquest] Recon Flight HUD Arrived

If you had a full-faced helmet, you might be able to figure out how to mount it so it doesn't overly obstruct your vision, too.

A guy at the tunnel last night had a pair of these and I tried them on. Kinda neat but the goggles are awful. I don't know that I would be able to see handles easily unless I was looking straight at them. Plus I am dubious that they would do well at FF wind speed.

However, and this is only anecdotal, the guy told me that he heard of someone mounting it inside their G3 so rumor on the street is someone has figured this out.

Or it is just a rumor. Either way, I think it's an expensive toy that would only be marginally useful for a wingsuit pilot who wants immediate feedback on glide ratio or something. I'm not seeing a strong use case for vertical jumps.
