Many thanks to BGJim and Banggood for giving me the opportunity to test this mini fpv camera.

Camera's and the goggles/monitor we use them with can be quite the discussion point on the forums , mostly due to our brain and eyes liking or not liking the way certain devices capture or represent the relevant images. A lot of FPV cameras come preset with a specific level of brightness or colour correction which in truth for the most part fits what we need in our RC devices , it does however help when we can tune the various settings to suit our respective part of the worlds sunlight or tune for a specific monitor/lcd/goggle, the camera we use is one of the most important parts in our setup as in FPV it is really all that we have giving us feedback from our quads.
My favorite camera to date has been the Eachine 1000tvl ccd , which is approximately the same size as the Mini Swift so trading the Eachine for the Swift was a pretty simple task, all that needed to be done was change the connector , or to be more exact i simply removed the pins from the plastic connector and swapped them over.
This is quite a nice small form factor FPV camera that is adjustable via its OSD which is were the main interests should lie. The camera itself is nicely built and comes with the necessary hardware needed to mount the Swift to your frame it also comes with an OSD cable which...Continue Reading

Ive been looking for a case/mount to allow me to use the Firefly Q6 in a more secure method , a friend of mine recently acquired a 3d printer so what better use than to make me a nice shiny case and its YELLOW

The case is pretty simple to attach , the two main parts fit nicely around the Q6 and are bolted together making a complete protective surround that also holds 2 cut-outs to help secure the case to your quad with a cable tidy or battery strap , the case also came with a couple of lens protectors, useful because i am not the most tidy of people and an angled mount because looking at grass is very boring even on 4s.

All thanks go towards my m8 for printing it and the original designer


Cheers m8
