Yes, I just ordered mine V3
Pretty much... i don't get why people always rag on Fu for where it came from... but now that all the electrical issues have been address what aboot the pink elephant...lens case.

Yep, Version 3 as well as the previous look more like an art project than a product but I like that.

I tried sending a request via your website but received no response.

I have the Horyzon HD v2 and like others my wires have disconnected from the main board. I would like to send the unit back for repair, or replacement. Or if possible pay the difference to receive the V3 or a "naked" gopro.

please let me know of my options.

Thank you

Just finished testing out this camera. No complaints at all. I like the fact that it is powered by a separate lipo and is much more aerodynamic than the gopro. I never did liked trying to spin a gopro around with servos. I also found that the camera has a really wide dynamic range. I flew it directly into the sun and could still see the ground perfectly clear.

HoryzonHD v3.0 Review (8 min 36 sec)

Bonus could go to a video of ground recording which is a more valuable information as to whether it can replace Fpv cameras.

evening flight

I've just flew my tri late evening / night thinking that the Horyzon wouldn't do a very good job in low light but as you can see it wasn't too bad, I've got the V2 at the moment but as soon as I get back to the UK I'll be ordering the V3 I'm so impressed with the camera

night/evening flight on a beach in Spain (5 min 40 sec)

I'm sure somewhere I saw a video from Fu describing how to earth the replacement UHF screened camera module lead (for V1) to the DVR and camera module.

Could someone please point me in the direction of this video?

Thanks

haha, I did post why we designed the lens case like that ,you guys will soon understand that,

my idea is to make the smallest FPV HD cam with a pan/tilt,
yes, we designed a pan/tilt for horyzonhd, and I assume to release it in March.
I want to claim again, V3 is a total new design including hardware and software.
it may look like horyzonhd V1, but it's totally different.
I also want to know how people like the photo an video trigger function
thanks

Thanks, I didn't get to try the photo/video trigger yet. I am installing it on my 2.6m Cularis sailplane. My flights with that plane will be very long so it will be very nice to be able to start and stop the recorder from the ground. Great job on the V3.

Video output power?

Can anyone tell me the power output (Vpp) of the video out of the HoryzonHD camera? That is the output to the video TX. I am having problems with over driven video on my FPV goggles. Just want to make sure that the power output is in spec with the goggles (sorry, but not AIO goggles).
Thanks

will upgrade the material though.
