Head band camera

I know everyone and their mother has either a smart phone or digital camera. I made an easy head band camera mount that works great. The head band flashlight I got from Harbor Freight for $1.99, I took off the flashlight, cut the brackets off the head plate using a dremel rotary tool. Then I zip tied the camera mounting bracket onto the plate which can be purchase here

Works with smart phone or digital camera. I use a Samsung S4 and it produce really nice videos. Now no one should have an excuse not to share their flights with everyone. Plus it makes the thread much more interesting to read.
Here's a sample of my S4 shooting my FX071, for best view, maximize the video. I didn't use the zoom on this video however, it works better if you have it zoomed at 1.7X.

FX071C quick flight (4 min 8 sec)

Hi

Not sure if this awnsers your question but this is the link to the replacement servos from banggod http://www.banggood.com/Wholesale-WL...3-p-60687.html

There is no specs listed for these as far as i know and i have only read of one person on here that had changed or upgraded them

Hope this helps

913 battery, yes, its still only 2S. I run those all the time, goes great.
913 uses the same PCB as the 912.
