What 18-HZ means? Is is related to some kind of FPS limit as in export restrictions for thermal cameras (which can produce 7-9 frames per second)?

Hi Vavooon,it means 18X HD zooming,not related to fps,sorry for the confusion.

Could you post video so the camera tracks moving objects while aircraft is moving too ?
in the las few months I've seen number of new gimbaled zoom cameras without any proof that it can be usable, normally one can see video just like yours: quad takes off then camera zooms to random direction.
I've many cameras and tracking is the hard ! Framing zoomed object w/stick very difficult! there has to be feedback from your cam to remote controller to reduce stick response while zooming.
I want to see video like this:
Mt.Arbel 3 MR FPV meet 2.2017 הר ארבל (1 min 44 sec)

Mt.Arbel II MR FPV meet 2.2017 הר ארבל (2 min 37 sec)


btw, I could review HZ18 if you want, just ship one w/prepaid shipping I promise to return the expansive piece if equipment ( I really have too many cameras)

Hi fmkit,
Yes you are right,tracking moving objects is a really hard part.
This video is mainly demonstrating 2 capabilities of the zoom camera:
1)Camera zoom capability
2)Gimbal stabilization
Many of our clients need zoom camera to inspect some static objects like power line,infrastructures etc.

As to moving object tracking,yes we also get many requests for that.So we are developing a tracking module for Sky Eye-18HZ,hopefully we can release it in 2-3 months.This module will solve the problem you mentioned.Anyway,the whole package will be a little pricey,not just $1,199.00
