Q: What is the right replacement lens?

Asked by frdeled on 2020-08-22 09:34:24

eric.brasseur What you need is a lens with a 12M diameter screw. All 12M lenses will fit, with some exceptions. If you want a lens that closely matches the original lens, then you need to match the focal distance; either 2.1 or 2.3mm depending on what you ordered. If you want a wider angle, use a 1.8mm "fisheye" lens. If you want a narrower angle of view, use a 2.8mm lens or more. Then you have to choose if you want infrared through or not. If you need the camera to operate in daylight and require true colors, you need an IR BLOCK lens, that contains a filter to block the infrared. If you don't bother much about color truthfulness but you want to see as much as possible in dark outdour settings, use a lens that does not block the infrared; IR SENSITIVE. To end with, if you really want to see as much as possible in dark settings, you need a lens with a wide opening, ideally about F:1. You will often find F:2 lenses, which is fine. The original lens has about F:4, like many very cheap lenses, which really harms the performance in dark settings, but, you get a better depth of view in bright settings.

eric.brasseur Sure. What you need is a small monitor that can accept a COMPOSITE video signal. They commonly have a yellow Cinch plug, either male or female. You can get one for around $20, for example a car rear view monitor. Then you need to connect two things to the connector at the rear of the camera (the one that has three pins). The black and the yellow wires must be connected to the monitor's composite input plug. Black wire on the mantel of the Cinch plug, yellow wire on the center. The black and the red wires must be connected to a DC power source of at least 5 Volts. Negative on the black wire, positive on the red wire. The power source can be a USB charger, a powerbank, a 1S Lipo battery connected to a 5 Volts step up BEC, a 2S Lipo battery... Best add a 0.5 Amperes fuse on the red wire for safety. If the monitor requires a 12 Volts power source, use for example a 12 Volts step up BEC. And best add a 0.5 Amperes fuse on that 12V output. Don't twist ground and live between power sources. Also keep in mind that this is a 16:9 only camera, despite what the selling page says. So, to get optimal results you also need a screen that can display in 16:9 format. You will get an image on a 4:3 screen but it will be compressed laterally. To end with, all I wrote is about using the camera in basic composite video mode. The camera pretends that it can be configured to produce a higher resolution image, that can then be displayed on a screen provided that it can accept that higher resol

Q: Is it switchible between 4:3 and 16:9?

Asked by Cynic_one on 2019-07-08 01:35:59

eric.brasseur No. Despite what the selling page pretends, this is a 16:9 only camera. Maybe it can display in 4:3 format when using a higher resolution video signal, I don't know. But in basic television standard composite video mode, like common drone electronics use, only 16:9 is available.

Q: does it work for PAL? it only states NTSC in the discription.

Asked by Anders Ahm Jensen on 2020-02-20 08:19:22

eric.brasseur It works perfectly with PAL. The specs talk only about NTSC but I got a slightly better recording when I switched the camera of my drone to PAL.

Q: Where can I find 1 mm shaft props for this frame?

Asked by marcello.scardi38 on 2020-10-16 01:57:10

eric.brasseur Type "48mm propeller" in the search field. Check carefully that you select propellers for 1 mm shaft, as 48mm propellers are also available for 1.5 mm shaft.

Q: will this fit Eachine e58? many thanks!

Asked by BG243912354 on 2020-10-06 02:51:23

eric.brasseur No. The Eachine E58 is way too heavy to be lifted by those tiny motors. Besides the each motor must have the appropriate cogwheel. See https://www.banggood.com/Eachine-E58-RC-Quadcopter-Spare-Parts-0720-7mm-Brushed-Coreless-Motor-with-Gear-Connector-CW-or-CCW-p-1228777.html and take into account that a quadcopter uses two clockwise and two anticlockwise motors; you need to replace a clockwise with a clockwise and so on.

Q: Can the thermometer work when it is in the freezer?

Asked by urimad on 2020-09-16 07:58:22

eric.brasseur To try and answer, yesterday I placed mine in the freezer. This morning it happily displayed -17.9 °C. According to its features list, it should work down to -50 °C. So it seems to be fine in a freezer, I just don't know what would happen on the long term.

Q: is there also the lens with 150mm cable?

Asked by spruna on 2020-08-30 10:13:59

eric.brasseur Yes. But you may not get a 150mm cable. I got a much shorter cable.

eric.brasseur The connector is the same. But, the Volantex Sport cub 500 comes with a 360 mAh battery, while the battery you are asking bout is only 150 mAh. If it works, you will get half the flight time. It may not work at all and the plane may be unflyable. Maybe check in forums if that plane can fly correctly with a much lighter battery.

Q: What is the wire size

Asked by Acb on 2020-07-28 10:55:05

eric.brasseur According to the photos, the wire to connect power and image is about 12 centimeters long. I cannot give an exact measure because I have already cut the wires of my camera. The wire for the OSD is about 15 centimeters long.

Q: Will it work with the JJRC H71?

Asked by BG515251671 on 2020-07-18 04:24:17

eric.brasseur No. The Eachine H8 Mini weighs 20 grams while the JJRC H71 weighs 126 grams. The JJRC H71 requires stronger motors. Also the technology of the motors of the JJRC H71 may be different.

Q: Eachine E013 VR006 is compatible with Eachine TX801?

Asked by BG564641991 on 2020-06-30 05:32:39

eric.brasseur Yes. Just beware that these goggles display in 4:3 image format hence the camera that you will connect to the Eachine TX801 transmitter needs also to use 4:3 format. If the camera provides a 16:9 image format, you will get an image inside the goggles but it will be horizontally squashed.

Q: what is the range of it

Asked by BG183216432 on 2020-06-29 03:25:42

eric.brasseur If you solder this antenna on a typical 25 mW emitter on your drone and your receiver devices like goggles or DVR are good quality and have good antennas... and there is direct sight between the drone and the goggles or DVR... then the distance can reach 200 meters. If you fly among trees or buildings then the range will decrease, possibly a lot, like below 50 meters inside a forest.
