The manual that I have is just the "HD Wing Camera quick start guide" , and doesn't explain how to format in the camera itself.
Is there a more detailed manual?
can i format the sd card from a computer when the camera is attached via usb (as opposed to a card reader)?
IS THE CAMERA SUITABLE FOR NITRO HELLICOPTERS?
I HAVE A TREX 600 NITRO PRO BUT WITH CHEAP CAMERAS THE IMAGE IS BLURING BECAUSE OF THE VIBRATIONS.
WILL I HAVE THE SAME RESULT WITH THIS CAMERA OR IT WILL WORK CORRECLTY?
THANKS IN ADVANCE I AM LOOKING FWROARD FOR YOUR ANSWER.
VASILEIOS, Yes you will have a video with a lot of jello. I would recommend using a drop down with wires or nylon screws and spacers to mount your camera to. Since your battery is on the nose of the heli, You can't put it on the dropdown to aid in mass for stabilizing, unless you add another battery in parallel to to your flight battery for longer flight. If you plan on FPV, the transmitter and power for it should go on the dropdown as well to aid in stabilization. If you use nylon screws and spacers, you can put your landing gear on the bottom of the dropdown and it will also aid in dampening the vibration. This video is of my quad with a dropdown that holds the battery, camera, and landing gear (sorry for the low resolution). Hope this helps and Happy flying!
Eric, One of the best ways I can recommend is to use the motion detect video mode and have the time set for 10 minutes. For an FPV system, get the FatShark Teleporter V3 system. It's $199 and well worth it. you can use the camera that comes with it or this camera. Another option is the Boscam 5.8Ghz 200mw FPV system. This one is out of stock now but is $55. However, with this system, you will need a monitor of some sort. This is the system I use with my camera plane along with the wing camera. Here is some video I took with this camera from my plane. Hope this helps and Happy flying
Yes, you have to plug your fpv system into the video out and put the camera on motion detect video or motion detect photo. I use motion detect video and have it set for the max (10minutes). 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

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.
