This one had great promise but the lift drifted too far downwind and I had to leave before the serious dancing began. But you can see the one leading me do a dominance circle as it becomes apparent I am leaving, about 1minute 20 sec into the video. I had 2 on-board cams but the the flying patterns could not be seen in them. Thanks again for these great threads and what they contribute to the progress of the #11 and #16 etc.

Nice one, thanks, brought back old memories of an adult seagull that tucked itself under the leading edge of my Olympia, stared me in the face before sliding out and disappearing up, with a look of disdain on its face.

Hi all, my trusty #11 cam is turning off after about 3 min in the air, it starts back up again next flight and again about 3 min in it shuts down, did 3 flights like this yesterday and lost all the action i thought i was filming. Is it just the battery getting old? it never seems to take long to charge and as said lights up and works for about 3 min for a few flights?

ordering a new #16 this week and if it is the battery i'll buy a new one while i'm ordering

cheers chuck

Yep, toss in a new battery. I (and many others) have had this problem and it is simply that the battery can no longer hold it's charge. I have two of the very first #11's and both batteries crapped within a couple of weeks of weeks of each other. Bought 2 new batteries, cut the old leads and spliced on the new batteries and problem was solved.

What's the charging power via USB or wall plug? Want to get a cigarette liter USB jack if I can. Been using my 5 watt iPod ac to dc converter to charge it as the straight USB port is too slow.......

The minimum spec for USB is 500ma. Your ipod charger puts out 5w at 5v, or 1000ma. Should be ok and get max charge in 30min or less.

Here's one from Saturday, still going fine

Speaking of ipod

I was in Starbucks recently when I suddenly realized I desperately needed to fart. The music was really loud so I timed my fart with the beat of the music. After a couple of songs I started to feel better. I finished my coffee and noticed that everyone was staring at me… And suddenly I remembered - I was listening to my iPod …and how was your day?

Hi, I ordered a #11 yesterday. I've tried to figure out how long does it take to charge it with the charging cable provided? Is there a way to speed up the charging process by purchasing a more powerful charger?

No, a more powerful (more ma capacity) will not be faster. See post #3.

I charge mine in my car with the cigarette plug charger, 15-30min.

Hi everyone,

do you know a good player on android that supports the tapes from the keychain (I'm using #11, #16 and #18)?

Hey guys,

I've got a small problem and after weeks of trying to eliminate it I'm still facing the same problem.

I've got a Keycam 808 #11 some month ago, the USB Car charger was included.

At the moment I use the "recover time 70"-firmware I got here:
http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showp...postcount=3531

However, the S/S/C feature doesn't work.

That's how I use the camera:
I put it in my car and start recording. When the recording started, I put in the mini-USB-cable with the car charger, both came with the camera.
After exactly 70 minutes (the charger is still enabled) the record stops. I have to disengage the charger to make a new recording start.


In the past I tried also the 20min SSC and the 50min SSC firmware, both had the same problems.


I also tried to use another SD-Card, didn't work either.


What shall I do? Is the USB-cable corrupt? Or the camera itself? How to fix?

I use it as car cam so it's very uncomfortable to check every now and then if the camera works...

Thanks in advance for your help,

Luzertof
