As I mentioned recently (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1739203) a few local ladies and I have been trying to get together an FPV drone racing club. While we've sort of gotten micro-drones taken care of with the above low cost VTX mount, we still needed displays.
Goggles are really best but when we tried out a cheap pair we hit a snag- you can't see anything with them on and none of the girls really wanted to be blindfolded in public. I think there are ones with a camera pass though? But they are way out of our budget. Being blindfolded at an event the middle of a crowd of guys was going to make focusing on racing tough (even if everyone was totally well behaved). So I decided to look at our options..
We need to keep costs low because I really want to use drone racing as a gateway to Maker culture for local girls, so all the solutions we're looking at are in the $50USD range. So far 5 inch displays mounted on tripods or the remote controls have not really worked out. I came up with this. I can use it pretty well but so far no one else has tested it.
