I used this camera only twice. When I try to start a video I have red led flashing instead of the blue led and then the camera switch off. Initially I though it was the battery but now it is doing the same with after a full charge. Any hints?
Lorenco, Not sure exactly what's going on, but I posted a help sheet in the [Files] tab titled "Simple Setup and Use guide". That should help you and I hope you get yours working. Use a class 10 card in it to ensure there are no hickups such as skipping frames or audio and video being out of sinc. These cameras do a pretty good job even in low light and I'm sure you will enjoy it once you get it working.
Hi Alberto, Read parts 5 and 6 in the "Simple Setup and Use guide". Pay attention to 5 c motion detect video mode, and read 6 for FPV. This will send the signal direct from your camera to your TV with the supplied RCA jacks. Hope this helps and Happy flying!
Hi Alberto, The manual is available in the files tab (above right) if you have followed the operating instructions and it stillfails to operate I would raise an RMA and request another one. should you get the item working you will not be disappointed they are great little cameras.
Alberto, Dylan T gave some good advice. I've placed a file in the files tab that should help you operate this camera. Go to the [files] tab, scroll down to the bottom, and the second to last file is "Simple Setup and Use guide". Hope this helps and Happy flying!
Really good camera for the money.
Use it in a small Quadrocopter for FPV.
This cam records much better then a keychain cam plus you can use it as fpv-cam (with a little trick)!
For sure this cam can´t be compared to a GoPro but you get it for only $35 - I´m very happy with it.
For all who want to use this camera as FPV-cam while recording - read this!
Normally you won´t get any live view at the TV-OUT while recording but I found out a little trick how it does work:
- switch on the camera
- wait until it´s initialized (long vibration)
- set it motion detection video mode (press on/off button twice untile yellow and blue leds will be on)
- plug in your AV-plug
- wait for a short time until you will see the live view on your Display/TV
! The following steps must be done very fast, if you do this too slow, the camera will switch off !
- pull out your AV-plug
- set camera to video mode (press on/off button twice untile only blue led will be on)
- plug in your AV-plug again
This has to be done very fast, otherwise the camera will switch off!
Now you can push the record button to start recording while AV-Out gives live view signal for your transmitter.

This camera is awesome for the budget. Very easy to use after you got the buttons order.
1) Press the button far from the lens for 2 seconds to turn it on (blue led). In a few seconds the vibrating motor will confirm that the camera is ready to go.
2) Select the mode using the same button: Blue - record video Red - photo. Blue / Yellow - record video automatic with any camera move. Red / Yellow - the same, but for photos.
3) Press the middle button to start/stop recording or to take a photo.
4) To turn it off press the button far from the lens again for 2 seconds. If you forget the camera on it will turn off after 3 minutes.
The camera was design to record with the buttons up, so it´s better to use it on the top of the plane.
Well, after recording you could watch the movies (avi) on your TV or computer. The computer is the only way to erase and copy the videos and you just need to connect via USB. It works very well on a PC or MAC.
Using a TV
Connect the camera cable to any Video Input on your TV. The default setting is for NTSC video, so no problem. You could change this and many other settings using the "camera´s tv menu".
1) The button closer to the lens is a menu selector. Press it for 2 seconds and you bring the menu up. 2) Use this button and the middle one to select options. (DON´T CHANGE THE LANGUAGE UNLESS YOU LIVE

Hola a todos, he comprado esta pequeña cámara en Hobby King y es estupenda, bueno tenemos que pensar en el precio que pagamos y el resultado de la imagen; la imagen es buenísima (±) yo tenía otra marca de video cámara y de precio 4 veces más cara y la imagen de esta cámara de hobby king es mejor con un diferencia, graba en un buen color; un color muy bueno si hay buena iluminacion, mucho mejor calidad y un precio genial, el aspecto físico de la video cámara es horrible de fea pero tiene buena calidad de imagen, solo una aclaración en días con poca iluminación (días nublados) la grabación sale un poco oscura, y días de sol, como aquí en Madrid que tenemos mucho sol, las grabaciones salen muy bien, yo puse una tarjeta de 8 Gb clase 6, y muy mal el sonido no estaba sincronizado iba por delante de la imagen y era horrible verlo y peor oírlo, me di cuenta que podría ser muchos datos para guardar para tan poca velocidad y decidí cambiarla por otra tarjeta de 8 Gb clase 10... y genial, genial, por favor si compra esta cámara, no se complique y póngale usted una tarjeta rápida de clase 10 y no tendrá usted ningún problema, espero haberles ayudado, si fuese así me alegraría, un cordial saludo, Félix, desde Madrid, España dejo un pequeño v

This will be my first bad review of anything on here. Don't waste your money for this one. I bought one and got 2 videos worth looking at. now the camera will not come on. I request again, that you do not waste your money on this item.
This camera worked only once and never twice. Moreover there was no user's manual supplied so one cannot understand the functions of the buttons. You just have to try and learn. Anyway mine is not working anymore and replacing it will cost more than its value with the prices to be paid for transport so I will just throw it away. BEWARE, you have to plug a micro SD card for it to work and it is not supplied with the unit.
