Wire wrap is too big for the 0.5mm pitch

The PCB's are being made, I should have them soon!!

I bought the Kodak Zi6 and created a mount for it on my MagpieAP:

I like the HD, I think flying FPV with it would make for smoother video though!

Can i just put the AV/output kabel on the red and yellow wires of this transmitter: ? Or do i need something else. The transmitter is made for a 12v camera. It has 3 wires, black , yellow and red. I think i only need the yellow and red, is that right?

Camera -> transmitter= use Black / yellow.

Power is seperately fed to Video transmitter = Black / red

A lot depends on what power the camera uses/ the VTx uses,

And if you share power between the two.

But simply, video to Vtx is always black/yellow ONLY

Nope, I got 0.5 mm wire wrap cable. I was working for a company where we were doing pcb patch with that type of cable.

I will try to wait for the connector

Alternatative? Sony MHS-PM1 Webbie HD Camera

Hi all,

wouldn't it be easier to use a cheap camera that already has its sensor separated like the Sony MHS-PM1 Webbie HD Camera for app 180 USD?

A few links:

What do you think?

That camera has his own thread, with detailed instructions how to uncase it and internals, and, even if seems more apropriate than Aiptek for this task, has his weaknesses.
You can find it for under $150 now.

I have both the Sony Webbie and the Toshiba Camileo P10 (virtually identical to the Aiptek) and the Toshiba/Aiptek does a better job of creating HD video with less compression artifacts, the Sony Webbie is a bit more 'soft' as well, where the Toshiba/Aiptek brings out every little detail. Hence my preference would certainly not be the Sony Webbie.

Someone in this thread has a Aiptek c100, so I have a question for him.
Do you have any problems with this camera , does it automaticly turn itself off when signal is lost for a moment? Im going to order this camera tomorrow, so I hope am making a good choise.

Or maybe someone else recommend me a better HD camera for under 100/$140. I preffer a camera wich I can buy in Europa too.
