My rating's are due to one thing. The camera supply cables.. being incorrectly wired. seem's to be the normal for cameras here on HK. my other camera I bought here several years ago had the same problem. How ever that put aside. The pan/tilt is awesome and work's well. nice and lite. no problems there. that item i rate all 5's..Boscam CM210 HD Camera with Pan & Tilt Gimbal for FPVCAN'T complain about an FPV camera WITH a pan/tilt for only $51 :-)
LIKE the simple, servo-based (no gears) gimbals - very compact & light :-)
LIKE that I got 2 cables: 1 for in-plane camera-to-transmitter, 1 for camera-to-RCA :-)
ABSOLUTELY POSITIVELY DESPISED that the wire color-coding was COMPLETELY DIFFERENT between the 2 cables GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!
ABSOLUTELY POSITIVELY HATED that I couldn't find a single DIAGRAM showing the wiring ANYWHERE - GRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!
The RCA-terminated cable is color-coded CORRECTLY:
- black is GND
- red is 12V (compared to GND)
- yellow is VIDEO (industry standard)
- white is AUDIO
EVEN MORE IMPORTANT !
The 5-plug connector-terminated cable is color-coded WRONGLY:
- black is VIDEO
- white is GND
- red is 12V
- there are NO other wires in the connector !
WHY Boscam thought they could ship a camera with 2 cables wired DIFFERENTLY is completely BEYOND me, but hopefully this review will ease everyone else's frustration.
FATSHARK/IMMERSIONRC TRANSMITTER USERS!!
- the ImmersionRC Transmitters provide only 5V in their 5-plug connectors, but 12V (what Boscam cameras require) across their 2-plug connector, so what you need to do is this:
- use a 3S, 11.1V LiPo battery (fully-charged it's 12.4 V, just enough);
-use a needle to press down on the catch of each pin, and remove all 3 plugs;
- re-insert the black (VIDEO) plug
