Make a deal with someone who wants the V959 without one and I'll ship it to ya........welcome to MassiveRC flea market bartering system.

I would say 20 bucks is probably the going price.

Yes, a vid of it in the air, and FPV, will be required.

I'll try and take a better recording where I have some room not to crash..........maybe this Sunday's gathering.

Hi MO,
Interesting that the cam has a 1 second delay. Most cams I have used for FPV on the larger multicopters only have milliseconds of delay. Specifically what cam are you using? Perhaps it has a very slow digital to analog processor.
Cheers,

She's a little portly with the skids, but at least the FPV gear should survive any crashes and maybe even still be able to take off from them, the V959 skid upper frame is perfect for the X4 board:

I have new respect for FPVer's. It's difficult to fly with that 1 second delay. You really have to go slow. You all don't want to see my first flight crashing for 4 minutes do you?

Jim, I have a DVD player that I could use but I've been using a USB video adapter and viewing it via AVS video recorder and I'm sure there's some processing delay going on as a result.

Hi MO,
Yep that explains it It is not the camera. Some of those USB DVR adapters do have quite a delay. Split the video output from the Rx to a video monitor instead of watching it on your computer.

LOL, it's probably some heat shrink shaving scrap. The 5V regulator allows me to run off the main battery instead of having a dedicated battery for the 808 cam. Without the regulator, running off the main battery would eventually cause the camera to shut off much sooner do to voltage sag. An additional benefit is that dedicated battery had to be mounted underneath the canopy.......now without it there my center of gravity is lowered.

Every gram counts......look how fast I can fly this thing with an 808 cam attached (compare it to my previous 808 cam doing the same circuit (sorry for the demo software watermark):
