I have a set of micro snap ring pliers and you still will bend it to much just getting it out of the groove. Take it off and toss it! Use the collar that came with the Turnigy. Snug it up close and lock it down. File a flat spot for the grub screw if you like. I just replaced a shaft on my Power 32 and it has NO snap ring, only the collar.

Key Chain Camera

Seems I am not the only one trying to figure this out so I thought I would post my research. Sorry for the long post. I hope someone finds it useful to have it all in one place


-The back left buttons are dummies just ignore them
-I will refer to the other 2 buttons as back and front buttons
-The back button is PWR and the front one is REC video or Take Photo
-Battery is rechargeable and from any USB port
-The light blinks when charging
-The light comes on steady when it is charged
-If Batt is dead the only way to know is that it will not turn on
-If batt dies during recording it saves the video to file and then turns it self off
-if mem card becomes full it does the same thing
Video
-Press and hold back button until Light comes on Steady (this turns power on)
-Press and hold front button until light flashes and then goes out (Starts recording)
-Press and release front button to stop recording (light will come on steady when recording is stopped)
Photo
-instead of holding down the front button press and release it
-hold camera steady until the light goes out and then comes back on

to turn off camera press and hold the back button until light goes out
-it will turn off by itself if no photo or video is taken for about 20 - 30 sec

to view files just plug into USB and treat like any USB drive (cut and past ect...)
I did a little test and it seems a full charge will record for about 1 hr provided you have enough memory
---------------
to set date
-Create a .txt file, named TAG.TXT ( you can use notepad in windows)
-Put the correct date and time into the file according below format. i.e.

[date]
2009/12/25
15:20:00

-Save the file, and copy it into micro SD card into the root directory (ie same area as the DCIM folder).
-Unplug camera from USB port
-Turn camera off and back on (use back button)

the date and time should be set up successfully now
shoot and view a test video of a clock to check it out

Thans guys on snap ring info

Robj and Divemaster thanks for the info on those snap rings. I really like the idea of using the collar and forgetting the darn things but I also like the idea of the snap ring pliers for $2 that will work and the 10 clips for a couple of bucks! Can't go wrong with either of them.

Thanks again,

Tom

Those 10mm-50mm snap-ring pliers are too big for them 5mm c-clips shown in the tower link.

Effective range:
External: 10~50mm
Internal: 10~50mm

I think the date stamp is onscreen and its wrong by a few years. When you watch the video it would lead you to believe its old

Absolutely! I'm sick of screwing around with a hobby knife trying to get them clips off, so I can push the shaft thru.

The clips was one issue...the second was it made me really nervous to stick the motor in the vice and drive it through. The press fit was much greater than I expected. I was sure I was going to ruin the brand new motor...but really the toughest part of all, as you noted was getting that flippin clip off! However, everything worked out okay and I have been impressed with the 3536C motor. Again, as noted by others, the stock motor doesn't even compare at twice the cost.

Basically what I did, took the smallest snap ring pliers, did a little grinding on the inside to allow them to get closer together. They work but 9 times out of 10 you will stretch the ring and its wasted. you can get a pair or long nose and sort of squeeze it back together. But the collar will be the catch all. I've never lost a prop and motor out of the front!

We had that problem also. We had much better luck just tapping it through with a small brass hammer.
