AOMWAY 10X and 30X FPV Zoom Cameras

Sometimes you just want to zoom in on the action


Zoomable FPV Cameras

Most of the time in FPV flying you want a wide angle lens to be able to see more of the environment around you to avoid obstacles and have more information to be able to fly safely. There are times though that you wish you could zoom in on something on the ground and take a closer look without having to move your aircraft closer. It would be especially great for search and rescue efforts. Enter the AOMWAY zoom cameras to fill this need. It's super small at 49x50x97mm and lightweight at only 208g. It comes with a vibration mount for attaching to copters or airplanes. You connect the control cable to an open channel on your receiver and it allows you to control the zoom function on the camera. It's available in NTSC or PAL format and either 10x or 30x zoom.

I personally wouldn't go near another Aomway product

And a 30 x zoom is unusable without heavily modifying a GoPro Gimbal and altering the camera or paying out several hundred dollars on a larger brushless gimbal that can take the weight and dimension as without it being on a brushless gimbal anything beyond about 15 x zoom is too unstable

Fmkit demonstrated a flight with 60x zoom with a custom made light gimbal, check his posts and videos.
But the camera was a commercial camcorder featuring internal OS.

i have good experience with aomway video tx, rx,a nd patch antenna. works for huge distances, and on 5.8..
i think this is just what's needed. can we ditch the bulky housing? and the minute this is mounted on a gimbal, it's golden. it could cost quite a bit,a nd would be totally worthwhile. just imagine!!! a great start, for a great product line! i would like to use this on my gemini V-2! would be great to see more detail from a few thousand feet! i have some people waiting for me to develop that, and they would definitely pay!

Haha very funny. The gimbal flipped but it kept stabilizing very efficiently.

Do they let you guys fly so close to military installations in Israel? Not that a shooting range is a big secret but I would expect a little tighter control. Unless the suspicions were not totally unjustified...
