FYI, I broke the USB / charging cable on mine, so I had no way to recharge the battery, and there's no standard cable to replace the broken one. The cable uses a custom pinout and unusual connector (not the normal micro USB connector). I ended up taking my camera apart and finding a 1S LIPO inside. I cut the leads to that and was able to charge it outside of the camera.
The camera does have a standard analog video audio output (with included cables, via the 8-pin connector), so it could be connected to any normal video transmitter.
It's field-of-view is narrower than most cameras used for FPV, so you would have "tunnel vision" when flying with this - you could only see what's directly in front of you, not the surrounding environment.
Andrew, im not sure ur right unless they changed the lens, Got my wing cam a week ago and it has a wide angle "fish eye" lens! it practically lets u see to the sides. Saying that, i didnt find it was a very good camera. the picture and lens are the best part, video playback quality is great. But mine will not hold an overnight charge and i cant get it to work with the Video Tx the picture is jumping around the screen (all my other cameras work fine) For less money on ebay you can get a 1080p camera with waterproof covering. remember one drop of rain on the exposed circuit board and this thing is toast. that's a lot of money up in smoke!
I was contrasting this camera with the popular GoPro cameras. They have a 170 degree field-of-view, with a very noticible fisheye effect. This camera has a 120 degree field-of-view, which isn't perfect, but much more natural looking.
Dear Hobby King, Great Camera would just like to be able to use it!!!, just frustrating it came with no leads!!!, box damaged and just left on door step, possibly not HobbyKings fault but would apreciate some customer support from there side, how many pictures of a damaged cardboard box do they need!!!10 days and still not resolved.
Dear Hobbyking, Why do you still allow these cameras to be shipped without manuals? After reading all of the posts below I think you could improve your customer satisfaction by simply adding simple instructions in proper english. BTW: Great camera! Scott
I am suprised to announce that this camera will survive being in a muddy stream, completely submerged for 2 minutes (While filming). I left it to dry near a fan for 24hrs and all works perfectly! Unfortunately the video file failed to save itself, that is the only complaint i have :P
Hello, yesterday I received the camera. Everything appears to be functional. Aside from recording audio with the video. The camera records video but no sound! If you run only audio recording, so the sound is recorded. The microphone is therefore good. But why did not sound in the video? I also tried the factory settings - the same result, no sound. Camera firmware is: R952/20120814. What to do? I am very disappointed = o / Fanda
Results with this cam from yesterday. Mounted upside down under the battery tray of a Walkera Hoten X quadcopter then image reversed with Windows Live Movie Maker. Filmed at 720p and 60fps to eliminate jello.
have down loaded manual thanks for that, they have copies of invoices, photos of packaging so I guess its just wait until it get to the top of the customer support list!!!
Have re written a second ticket and no response to it either
Think a week for a response is very poor
Hi just recieved the Camera, looks great only one problem no instructions or cables! The box all smashed up but camera still in it!. Have contacted customer support for over a week and no responce very poor for a 24hr customer support.
Go to Files section to see manual for this camera. And the pack includes hdmi cable and charger cable.
Support is slow but effective... Rewrite in same support ticket and include photo of your order, and wait.
If its necessary change priority of ticket.
Does anybody know how to upgrade or reinstall the firmware of this camera? I've got mine couple of days ago and now it seems the system got a problem!!! it shows different malfunctions!!! sometimes stops recording by itself, sometimes it wont turn off!!! and sometimes when you try to turn it off the vibrator keeps working and it doesn't turn off!!!
Does anyone have any idea what the problem is? I thought maybe it will be fixed if I re-install the firmware!!
ok ,so I managed to get mine working by taking off the lens from the board and reinstalling it a couple of times ,before I did this it would not save anything or switch off once started.It appears to have had a loose connection or the contact points were not touching
if you are getting live video feed through your tv ,then its not the lens problem that I had, but probably a card problem .it would be best to use a high quality class 10 card and be sure that the contacts are good by pressing on the card while trying to record
No, this is a limit of the optics of the camera. You can get better low light results by useing the 720p 30 fps setting. I have found I get fair results down to 3 lux in full1080 and as low as 1 lux in the 720 setting but not real good color seperation. A lot of shadow effect. Scroll down and find my Sunset Sea Vixen video to see near limit of good low light full 1080p recording.Happy Landings
today was the wing cam II delivered. All include, but no manual!
I have the same problem, as werner.
6 weeks for delivery are too much! No invoice on the outer side of the parcel. Without anything it´**s not possible to make a customs declaration, because the products are very similar, without any documentation. Assuming that you already sent items to Germany, you should know that customs need an invoice attached to the package.
Leonardo. The camera itself generates RF noise in the 433mhz range. As this camera has no shielding what so ever the noise is pretty strong. The GoPro and similar cameras also create this noise.
You can add shielding to reduce and even eliminate it but at a huge weight increase. The FPV LAB website has a good thread regarding this and some solutions. I would however suggest ground testing any solutions you might try and preferably using a good frequency scanner.
Hope this helps and happy landings.
I just have seen the difference which is the HDMI Out. So I have the wing cam II. Why is it not possible to give a complete web adress with the manual, I´*ve seen so many coments of people who have the product but no manual? Up to now it´*s worthless
Werner the manual is posted again under the file section just above the discussions.
1 thumbs up!
If anyone has used a HD808 keychain camera #11 #16 or #18 you will notice a huge difference in Quality!
Stable 720p 60fps (Many small cameras loose frames)
Stable 1080p 30fps (Great quality but takes a lot of work to remove "Jello when used on aircraft)
Night Mode for low light conditions (works but tries to keep colors)
ODD video file (AVI/H264) Most applications will not edit this)
Does not come with Video out/Power cable like an HD808 #18 (So you can charge and have video out at the same time)
Does not have WDR (Wide Dynamic Range) Brightnes hunting is smooth but slow.
Not in the US warehouse! (hobbyking, you have to get more stuff in the USA warehouse!
Buy It! Great camera, the Video Quality is great and the Brightness problem can be fixed by aiming the camera more at the ground.

No as good as the GoPro but good for the money.

Compare it with GoPro. Video specs of gopro are 1080p: 1920Ã—1080, 30FPS. 960p: 1280Ã—*960. 48FPS 30FPS. 720p: 1280Ã—*720, 60FPS 30FPS. exact same specs of HDWC-II. Looking at the pluses:-
1. 1/3 the cost of Gopro (Of course, this one is cosmetically good looking) 2. Has an HDMI out. 3. Weighs only 86 gms. 4. Unlike HDWC-I, which required class-6 & above microsd card, which costs more, here you need class-4 and above, so some price saving there too. It delvers what it says, no more dark images during low light conditions due to larger aperture camera. Good Product
