RF noise ?

It's definitely the prop you are seeing in the first video , I wanted to see it , the camera is in identical position in second vid, just rotated 90 degrees, there is NO RF noise what so ever, great little cam .
Obviously you can easily move the camera along the wing to eliminate the prop in shot .

Sounds like you were getting the prop tip only in your video,lines from RF interference usually go right across the frame, anyway that's good news and easy to fix, move the camera out a Little or , as suggested, face it backwards

you are right junglejim... it is the prop. The video was not good enough to post.. its been too windy here to maintain long flights. Plus I am somewhat limited in space. I need to join a air club.. but I heard the closest one to me the people are old grouchies that do not want foam planes on their field. plus its 200 Feet on top of a hill so wind is even worse! I am going to practice on my 450 Heli, Then I will put the camera on that. If I get some worthy video I will post it here.. but I am still learning to fly.

Since it has been too windy to try to fly anything, I put my keychain camera on my RC-10 .15 nitro car.. I wonder how I can make the video less bouncy. change location on the car? or stiffen/ loosen the shocks.. oh well .. here is the 3 minute video..

How do you know when the battery is fully charged...the instructions say the led light will go out when fully charged, but it doesn't go out on any of mine, even after a couple of hours???

The box mine came in said the battery was 280mba 3.7v. The wall charger with it says output=500ma ....so I thought just over 30min from flat would be enough???

the keychain I got did not come with a wall outlet transformer. The instructions said to use the included USB cable, from a computer USB port (5v) or a 5v USB cigarette lighter car charger. It must have an internal VR circuit to charge the battery, and stop charging when the max voltage of a 1S cell is reached... maybe I should try my lipo charger, set for one cell and .1 amp. It will stop charging when the right voltage for a 1S lipo is reached as well..

Has anyone had the lens building up a layer of salt. Because I have been flying on the coast in very strong winds, my clips look now a bit hazy. I have opened up those 2 little screws on the back end of the camera,and opened the cover. To get better access to the lens. I used a cotton bud with some lens cleaning fluid. It has made a difference but it is not as good as it was in the very beginning.
Does anyone have any other ideas, apart from buying a new one?

Hi i have been reading these threads and watching the videos but has anyone any idea how to reduce the wind noise that this camera records when in video mode.I have mounted a 808 camera on my bike and have placed a piece of foam over the microphone "like on microphones used by news channels when outside" but either the microphone is realy good at recording the slightest noise or i have not done a very good job as when i watch the video there is allways air noise.
I thought that by adding the foam the wind noise would either be greatly reduced or even gone and you could only hear the engine noise but i can still hear both,30% engine & 70% wind noise.
I believe i have the #3 camera which has the slot to fit my mini sd card of which is 4gb.


Thanks
