    It seems I am one of the few older racing pilots around my area. I am always looking to rescue drones from folk that have crashed or given up on them. Everyone I meet is much younger.

    I can think of two reasons as to why older folk don't get into it. One, hand to eye reaction; and two, eye sight.

    I don't seem to have too bad of a hand to eye, but being farsighted sucks. So far, the small dual screen goggles seem to work pretty good, but I like the wider angle of the single big screen googles. I went to Wallyworld and got the strongest reading glasses I could find, i think it was +3, and they helped a bit. I needed something stronger so I kept looking for solutions. I ended up ordering stronger reading glasses from China through eBay and they did the trick. Something else that works is the lenses off of a set of those magnified headsets with a light. I ordered a set that came with 5 different strength lenses.

    Some goggles, like the Headplay, are big enough to wear with glasses. Others, like the eachine, you have to remove the glasses' legs and hot glue them in place.

    I had this issue for the longest time until they came out with the FXT Vipers. You can wear reading glasses with them without any modifications, I use 2.5X diopter glasses and even if I wear them for a long time there is no eye strain.
