Iphone charger for a 808 #16 camera?

I am using this camera as on-board gear in my Bixler / Skysurfer and I am getting tired of charging it via my PC for 2,5h. Would an ordinary Iphone wall charger do the job? The camera has a standard USB connector cable and so do the Iphone charger.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I'm not sure. I made a cable that runs from a spare channel on Rx to the USB port on camera. No recharging, no flat battery.

There is a cable that you can power your 808 # 16 camera from the main batter through the receiver.

I got it on eBay. I don't know if there are any more but you can look for them. http://www.ebay.com/itm/808-16-DVR-R...42114416427214

Need some feedback - Which is better (background at end)

Power system: NTM Prop drive 35-30, 1100kv, 8x6 prop.

On 3S - 50% throttle - 400g thrust @ 4.2A.......at 100% throttle - 880g thrust @ 15A

Or 4S - 50% throttle - 500g thrust @ 5A.........at 100% throttle - 1350g thrust @ 23A


Trying to finish a build by Sunday - leaving for a long trip and want to take a FPV Bixler with me - so kinda rushed.

Any comments on which drive system would be better?? Don't know the final weight as the build is not finished but assume the usual.

(Posted in the regular thread but no feedback, should have been posted here from the start I think).
