I assume I have a V1 because of the reference to the USB cable change V1->V2.

Another clue might be the EXIF data for single JPEG images. Here's mine, says program is V1.

A quick flight with my quad and a No 11 camera.
The ruined abbey is a few minutes from where I live. It used to be the second richest and most powerful abbey in England.

TURN the sound down as the quad is pretty noisy !

Hi Mike,
I was surprised how much the quality drops when uploaded to Vimeo. The original video from the camera is much better.

I like Whitby and the ruined abbey on the cliff. This one is Furness Abbey and is located in the "Vale of deadly nightshade" so called because the stuff thrives in the valley where the abbey is tucked away.

Here's some cloud busting on a #11 cam, had it (cam) for a while now and haven't used it much. I think I've found a new life for it, one square inch of velcro on this flying wing held it on. Didn't even have to rebalance the CG, it flew just fine. Can't say that for GoPro!

Hi,
The props are 10*4.5 - normal 2 bladed.
The quad is pretty heavy though and uses fairly large motors.
A lighter quad with the same type and size of prop is a lot quieter.

No.
They are "anonymous". Came from a seller in USA, but there are a number of places/countries where they can be found.

They are quite good. Pretty strong and available in different colours. I had a few different types before these. Some were a bit brittle, some - cheap from Hobby King wouldn't even lift a quad off the ground. Just changed the props out for better ones and it leapt into the air !

I like the N0 11 camera but will be sending off for a No 16 next week.

Of course both the #11 and #18 will work, but by far the most popular and extremely well supported by the developer is the #16. The #18 developer basically copies what the #16 developer has already done, so the #18 is always lagging behind. The #11 and #18 are identical except the #11 does not have video-out.

Click here for the #16 thread.

Depending on what type of plane you fly, the #16 is lighter than the other two, but at the cost of recording time. The #16 has a lighter and smaller battery, and the case is not so thick. The #16 runs about 40-45 mins., the #11/#18 up to 60 mins.

For fpv, the #16 is definitely better because it doesn't have unnecessary large icons cluttering up the video signal. It also uses much lighter cables which were designed with fpv in mind.

It's difficult to list the pros and cons because a lot depends on what you actually want. The video is pretty much identical on both models. The functionality is similar, the #16 is easier to setup and has more parameter settings for finer control. The #16 has time-lapse videos and uses a standard 5-pin mini USB plug.

The #18 USB mini 8-pin plug is non-standard and the developer completely messed up the connections. You need separate cables for accessing the camera as a removable disk and for recording with external power. If you require video-out you need another special cable which has to bridge two pins. The cables are heavy and more useful for connecting the camera to a TV. If that's what you want, then it's fine.
It's much more difficult to make your own cables for the #18, and right-angled solder plugs don't exist for the 8-pin plugs - at least I haven't found any...

The sellers are listed in post #2 in all the three threads.

#11 - $30
#16 - $38 - $43 depending on lens
#18 - $mid 30s

HK wing lens fits #11

In this, the boat cam is #11 with HK lens. Capcam is GoPro.

I have used extensively both the 11 and the 16, for me there's no argument. The 11 suffered a bad brown green colour hunting that badly messed up some of my videos. For a few $ more the 16 is far better.

Check out a few of the videos on my channel to see the evidence!

Just for fun here are a couple of videos with the #16 and the new #16 D wide angle.

I didn't edit color or jello. What you see is what you get. The video of the plane flying is shot from a #16 mounted on my transmitter.

This is the long version.
