After mixed results with a stripped OLED display, I've got another reason to make a heads up display. This time it's to show video from a drone camera in a way that doesn't completely obscure your vision.
I've got a set of cheap Eachine goggles with built in receiver that works fine for testing but the final prop needs to be a wearable that fits in with the rest of the costume and isn't too bulky.
The two halves click together using the mounting prongs on the display, hold pretty firm and I've managed to hold the PCB and easily damaged flexible flat cable in place. On the rear is a spot for a heat set insert, which I'll use to add to the arm connected to the helmet.
It needs a couple of M2.5 screws to properly secure the PCB but unless you really yank on it you're not going to accidentally damage the FFC any more.
