Hi
I bought this lovely camera and I am using it on my DIY Quadcopter X 250, I am trying various setting to see the result. I also tested FPV using the video adapter that come with the camera and a TX526 and the result are good.
What worries me is that the adapter and the camera become very hot, almost untouchable, is it normal?
Another problem that I found after using it for FPV is that connecting it to the PC with USB is no longer recognized as an external drive.
I do not know if this is due to high temperature when used for FPV or other cause, what do you think?

Other than the cable that came with the Q6, did you need any other adapters to connect it to the transmitter?

No, the cable that came with the Q6 is the adapter, it has V+ and GND as input from the battery and video as output to the TX.

My cam becomes very hot as well. But no problem with my PCs... try with another SD card and don't be afraid to put a good one as U Class (U1 or U3)

Thanks Patrick74
I don't think the problem is the SD because if I use it with an USB adapter it works, if I make a new video with the Firefly with the SD in and then I put the SD in the USB adapter the video is there. The only thing that doesn't works is reading the SD when it is in the cam.

USB cable could be a problem as well.
And reset your Q6,
format your card with SD formatter.

you might need to hook it up to an external power, something like this. Not my video

Already there. I connect my Q6 raw to the 6 cell battery main flight pack to no ill effect.

I'm worried about memory. I fill up my 32 gig SD card in 1080p 60fps mode in about an hour and a half and I want to record my entire flight. 6 hours may be a bit excessive but certainly not out of the question if I am feeling ambitious enough.

not sure if it's the chipset or the firmware, but best to ask or request from Hawkeye to see if they can make a firmware that support 128GB or even better 256GB micro sd.

I have a question, seeing how to feed the room to 7.4v via its usb cable with integrated bec, can I even remove the battery inside the right room? In this case, I would spare more weight.

I have tried all this and I have also flashed new firmware 2.5 but the problem persist, if I connect the cam to PC via USB I don't see it as USB drive, not a big problem, I use an external USB SD adapter.

To obviate the problem of the video adapter becoming really hot I am thinking to build an adapter with 10 pin mini USB connector a 33K resistor for ID, power the cam with 5V from the PDB and taking video from the right pin as explained by MoeRawi on post #765

Has anyone tried this?

Anbello, did you try with another PC or just with this problematic?
