I'm looking forward to crazy4volvo's investigations.
I tried feeding the data sheet into AltaVista Babel fish, and it ran screaming into a corner and refused to play
even with some clip and paste of small sections.

Don't stress the poor thing

Word by word is the way to go. I tried a few words (I'm not sure of the difference between a Chinese word and a Chinese sentence) and the results weren't bat at all.

Did you just copy & paste from the PDF ?
Will try again - later..

I hate replying to stuff that is totally off the thread's topic, don't know it ended up discussing Chinese 'words', but years ago a friend/flying buddy of mine (who's father is - erm was Chinese R.I.P - told me that each symbol in Chinese tells 'a little story' and those symbols can get complicated. Though he can't talk or read Chinese very well. I'll have ask him about it again. Also, I thought they read from Right to Left, so the above 4 lines examples are back to front?

Now I'm trying to think of a way to get back on topic so I don't get yelled at!
Erm, I've had my #16 since just before xmas and it's still going well after hundreds of hours of recording and a few crashes, have not even needed the swap out the battery for the bonus free one yet.
Doh, this is the #11 thread. - I'll leave now!
-B!

Yes, I just copy a "word" from the PDF and paste into Google Translate.
I believe Google reverses the order - I thaught it was the Arabs who read from right to left - who knows

The translations are actually quite accurate and the Chinese read from left to right.
I know what I'm talking about.

Finster,

The bugs are worked out in the 16. I have both. The 16 is better in terms of video quality in low light and dark to light transitions. I replaced the lens module because I screwed up the original. That new lens has better color and slightly wider AOV. The lipo will last longer because the charging circuitry in the #16 is easier on the lipo.

By the way, the #11 didn't hit the market until a year ago so how did you buy a #11 two years ago?

I guess you didn't read the first few posts, especially the FAQs as the thread title instructs you to do before posting questions?

I don't suppose you did either. Since there are only "written" instructions for the #11. And not the "Jumbo" #11. Only a video. Which does not help me at the moment. I need these for an employee.

If someone could help point me in the direction of one. It would be greatly appreciated.

My investigators use these for undercover assignments. I have a new employee starting. And not enough time to transcribe Techmoans video.

I always read thru the FAQ's before posting. I'm under a deadline. And was just hoping for a little help.
