W,
My v929 rev 1 is more stick sensitive than my rev 2. Both auto-level and fly about the same. Neither has a plug for LEDs, so there must be a "newer" rev 1. Does it also have a date on it?
Cheers,
Jim

I translated the equipment list as follows:

1. 5.8GHz 200mW wireless AV signal transmitter
2. AV transmitter battery 3.7V 300mAh
3. JST plug / connector
4. Industrial grade micro color lens
5. 4.3 inch display monitor
6. LM7805 stabilizer & heat sink
7. Battery for the display

That Rev 1 is the newer board with 4 LED plugs, aka the V949 board!
How did you get it (them) so quickly? Where did you order from and price paid? (If you don't mind).
Did your V929/V949 come with LEDs, or just empty plugs?

i question the reality of that setup. afaik there are no keycams (actually that is a gum cam) with composite out. suspiciously it does not appear on the list. please prove me wrong.

He has a website devoted to his FPV setup: http://www.xie-gang.com/24g.htm

But it is in Chinese so... good luck with the translation!

since literally hundreds of rcg members have been looking for a keycam with baseband out and noting yet id rather conclude its a hoax. like 2/3rds of the other facetube stuff (and internet in general for that matter).

Well #16v2 and #18 are both 808 keychain cams with video out. There are also a lot of fpv cameras offered that are micro sized as well that are used. Somewhere in either this thread or the other there are links to a pretty much complete setup for right around $100.

If i understand you correctly, this the board you are asking about:

http://www.banggood.com/Wholesale-Wl...6-p-47484.html

It's avaliable since more than a week, i have one en-route for "DYI" quad, should be here any day.

To sum it up, three different boards for V929 out there:

1. rev 01 NO LED - twitchier
2. rev 02 NO LED - stabler
3. rev 01 LED - aka V949 board -> avaliable @banggood ^^

I thin they decided to do a reset after the rev03 that Kosem got.

Probably decided that there is enough change that warranted a rev01 designation? Or possibly because they decided to introduce it as a v949.

I think the date code does a better job of describing the timeline of the various revs.

V929/949 Rx Boards

I know that the revision numbers on the beetle Rx boards has been a confusing issue. But it does make sense. You just need to look at the whole development history. I've been looking at various photos this morning and I've come up with the following time line:

In the beginning, there was the first V929 with a Rx board that says:

JR-WL-FD02R.......REV 01.....2012/05/23
Then there were:

JR-WL-FD02R.......REV 02.....2012/06/08
JR-WL-FD02R.......REV 03.....2012/07/04.....With LED
JR-WL-FD02R-1....REV 01.....2012/07/22.....With LED
JR-WL-FD02R-2....REV 02.....2012/07/30.....With LED......V949

So, they started out with the FD02R board, Rev 01 and 02, selling them as V929. Kosem got the next batch, called Rev 03 with lights. Then they renamed the 8 plugs Rx board to FD02R-1 and started from Rev 01 again. That's why REV 01 has a newer date than REV 03 it seemed. So, if you just pay attention to the dates on the board there will be no confusion.
