So that's the name: microscope slide

I wonder if you also experience 'foggy' videos. Another possible solution came to me: use silicagel or silica pebbles

I've just finished my first mount, machined out of nylon it weighs 7g. I'll attach it to the plane with a velcro patch the same diameter as the base giving a manual pan and tilt facility. Its a shame that something like this is not included with the camera, injection moulded it would only cost pence to make.

I've posted in the FAQs all the things that have been done to get a non-functional camera working. Have you tried to flash in new (Release 2) firmware again. Will the camera do that when you turn it on and push the power button (sounds like ii won't). If that's the case and you have tried the battery total disconnect/reconnect trick, and still nothing, then I'd suggest you contact your eBay seller and ask for a replacement. You'll need to send the old one back to do that.

Holder

Made mine out of aluminum.
See post below for pic,s and video.
I put velcro on the bottom of the mount, didn't want velcro on the camera.
Might use it as, oh I don't know..... A SPY CAMERA.

Two of my #11 cameras are now down to about 15 minutes recording time, and one degraded very rapidly to about 2 minutes, so I have ordered replacement batteries from hxelepro@gmail.com. Does anyone know if these replacement batteries have the little charging circuit board attached, or do you need to reuse the old one? (Since I don't really have the equipment or the eyes for working on such tiny boards, I'm hoping I can just cut the wires and splice in the new batteries.)

They are the same as the originals, including the circuit board and red and black wires. I received my two spare batteries just this week, from the same vendor.

Different interpretation of continuous recording

This is my first post, and I would like to thank Tom for his great work in providing firmwares to customize 808 #11 camera.

In terms of the features in the firmware, I am most curious about the continuous recording. In the description of firmware post, it seems to imply that instead of chopping up the file at 1Gb size, it will record up to 4Gb, and so on, until the memory card is full.

In my mind, the continuous recording is more like you can keep recording the files in 1Gb size, but once it depletes memory, it will simply delete the oldest video and start a new recording there. That way, if we are on a long road trip (assume we use it as a driving recorder), we don't have to keep taking out the memory card after awhile (i.e. 80 min for a 4Gb card).

So as a feature request, is it possible to have some type of continuous recording even after memory is full?

Thanks a bunch!

I had a problem with my camera today. I turned on the camera and the yellow light came on. I pushed the record button and the yellow light went off. I launched my Radian Pro, flew for 15 min or so and landed. I stopped the recording and the yellow light came on as usual. I turned off the camera and went home. When I viewed the recording only the last minute or so recorded. Anybody have an idea as to what happened?

Hi all, thanks for all the information posted!
I was wondering if you could help though. I have a #11 and have found video appears a little dark, unless the sky is quite bright. This wasn't the case with my old #3. Would the new firmware improve this? Also, I know there can be no guarantees but I was also wondering if anyone knew how likely my camera would be to accept the new firmware. Perhaps someone has purchased the same item?
It was listed as HD DV LENS Video Camera DVR Flying Camcorder 720P #11, the seller was eletoponline365 and I ordered it in may 2011.
Many thanks!
