Foxtech HoryzonHD 1080p FPV cam V3 old thread, pleae check the new thread

Hi guys ,Due to too much information in this thread ,I opened a new thread ,you can find new firmware there
and more test videos will follow up!

HoryzonHD V3 is a revolutionary Full HD 1080P camcorder and FPV camera.
It has a seperated cam module connecting the mainboard module by 20cm cam wire.
It creats a lot of possibility and saves a lot of weight for HD FPV and other applications.

Many improvements are made on Horyoznhd V3 from hardware and software.
It could be the easiest to use HD FPV camera in the world.
we designed new keypad, new video/photo trigger, new video out port
and the most important of all.
You can still have a full 1080p cam onboard with just 48g extra weight.

Horyzonhd V3 is a cam that needs no DIY job.
fully shielded, specially made photo, video trigger and av out port.
this port is safer than the normal 3 pin plug on FPV cameras that doesn't break easily.
we also put in 2 heat shrinks in the box ,so if you want to remove the monitor to save weight.
that's fine.

about the software.
we reduced image noise and made the image looks more natural.

also start-up recording was added. so normally you install it on your plane.
power it up through the V-reg.
and plug in the main power battery ,then it just works as a normal FPV camera while it's recording 1080p video.

if you remotely trigger the video recording on and off.
you even don't need to press the buttons after setup.

Here is the link to my YT channel... I cant say which is "best" but there is everything from crashes to clouds, high to low flying - and a fair amount of night flights.

I use #11 keychains, GoPro, and flight cam.

yea my 17 subscribers don't help either. But I have reviewed a few products. I have been able to get the 5.8ghz 200mw to 8km and showed others how I did it.

I have been using 5.8ghz behind trees and far away. I have a few different FPV style of planes. Wing, twinstar 2, tri copter.

anyway I do test things and since I am unemployed I have the time to test like mad

I have a few videos on youtube and vimeo

i can do a review and it will be an honest one. but you can't be too demanding from a camera that weighs only 30g

I have a tech based youtube channel with R/C content and 2000+ subscribers.

I would be happy to do a review. I don't have many fpv videos yet, but it will be a major part of my channel soon, so I could offer a good FPV beginners take of the camera. My youtube channel can be found under the name rcbif101.

Here is a FPV setup video. I dont have any fpv flying videos yet, as I have been working on, and just finished my tricopter. It would be a good camera testing platform

Don't mean to rain on anyone's parade, but horizon is spelled with an I, not a Y. Not sure any of you spelling buffs noticed, but it stuck out like a sore thumb for me?

It's a 1080p video cam that take Full HD onboard video and store it in the
memory card, and transmit the PAL or NTSC video signal to the ground station
through video transmitter.
I adopted a separated sensor module design that enables many possibilities.
you can now use a tiny pan/tilt to take HD videos.
the whole unit is only 38g including the monitor and less than 30g without the monitor.

I should get free sample cause you stole my idea and now call it "a revolutionary FPV cam"

Yeah, my YT channel is pretty much in its infancy as I've just begun to start putting up videos.

I'm also just beginning in an FPV setup, so might be good to put it into the hands of a total noob so others can see it from that perspective.

Here's one video from my channel with my maiden of EA's Axon.

Flying the Axon (3 min 4 sec)

The next on repair after the crash.

Axon ... after the Crash (6 min 14 sec)

I was also going to begin doing short reviews of items I have used and my thoughts on them.

If you're willing to take a chance on me, I'll do it.

I've already got the FOXTECH CE OSD V1.5 which I just ordered about a week ago and should be arriving to my hands here in the next week and am planning on putting up a review/setup video on that item.

Thank you for your consideration.

Hi Glassfox, you have a PM.

looks really good so far. would be interesting to see how strong the jelly effect is, because that's the thing the gopro does very right (besides the marketing), and ALL the other action-cams suck at or are at least noticably worse.

send one to and one to trappy@teamblacksheep. should be very effective

PS: also make sure the lag from camera to av-out is minimised (if possible) and the brightness of the camera adjusts very quickly and maybe only to the lower 1/3 of the image or so (ground) and some wide dynamic range kind of stuff (if possible)

Wow, what a great looking cam, it appears to solve all the pain in the butt issues with other cams (bricks)

I'd love to review one but have only just started out and don't have many subscribers
I do however already use Foxtech AIO goggles as well as Foxtech 5,8ghz tx/rx and a Cyclops Nova OSD

Oh and my Youtube views are 78,746 views, not counting my Vimeo and Metacafe stuff
