Oh, odd. I'm sure I once saw a video of yours where you explained how to earth the UHF shielded camera module cable to the SD card slot, and also to a location in the camera house too?

It's just it's not actually that obvious how you can earth the UHF shielded cable to anything. Any ideas?

Thanks.

In essence, my simple question is HOW do you earth/ground the UHF shielded cable on the V1 to the DVR and the camera module, as you can't solder to the shielded-wrap?

I noticed on the V3 you now have a bolt going though the shielded-wrap, which is neat, but not possible with the V1.

(I must say however that I've been impressed with the V1 and the 'productising' advancements you've made in V3. I think I'll be buying a V3 as soon as your pan/tilt is ready.)

I remember several users complaining about "Dark Video Out" on V2 (I think) and that some modification was done on V3 to correct this. I have a pair of AttitudeSD goggles I am using with my V3 and I am getting over driven video on the goggles. I am wondering if this has been "over done a little". Has anyone else experienced this problem with their V3? Fat Shark says that their goggle can take 1.3Vpp before any color distortion.

FU- Can you tell me what the Vpp is on the video out of the V3. Can a multimeter be able to tell me what that output is ? Can a potentiometer or resistor be put in line to reduce the Vpp output?

Thanks for your help

ah? too bright?
never thought of that, hah
ok, we removed a 50 om resistor from the video out
so you can try to add a 30 om resistor to test.
I don't have anyone else complaining about a too bright image yet
video out looks fine on all our monitors and goggles,
is it possible to adjust the AttitudeSD goggles ' brightness?
thanks
Fu

Thanks for your quick reply.
I have adjusted the brightness and contrast on the goggles from stop to stop but still the image quality suffers from over driven video. I am working with the Fat Shark people but I remembered about the comments about the "Dark video out". Maybe you two folks should talk? I will try to add the resistor inline and report back.
Thanks

OK, I put a 33 om resistor in-line of the HoryzonHD video out to the Fat Shark video TX. That seemed to clear up the problem. No blooming colors and high contrast. Maybe a pot to be added to V3 to adjust video out?
Thanks for your help. Glad I got this fixed.

I just got my V3 in the mail, exceptional service as the item posted within a couple of hours of being ordered and wtll within the delivery time frame quoted on the Foxtech site.

I do have a question though, without taking the viewer board apart is it possible to seperate the video cable so I can fit my the camera to my Bix2 canopy. I don't want to cut big holes in the foam to fit the camera which would remove much of the strength of the canopy. Maybe a connecter fitted in the cable would make it easier to fit the camera as required.

I am building my first FPV plane. I have just decided to go with the V3 camera. I like the out of the box plug and play of this setup! Nice Job!

if you open the cam case , you will be able to remove the ribbon cable from the socket, then you can arrange the cam moduel easily on your plane
