Is there a point and shoot camera that has video out like the go-pro?  I currently use the gopro video out to send back video of what I am taking a pictures of.  I am looking to upgrade to a camera…Continue

Conditions:I have a hexacopter with APM2, pulso motors and a dji frame.  Pretty strong setup as I am running 4s.  Stabilize and alt hold are perfect!  Spent a couple days tuning them to perfection. …Continue

"Forrest check out miniquadtestbench.com. A lot of good data there though geared to the smaller fpv quads. His testing methods are pretty neat. All automated and data logged. The hobby wing Xrotor pro 40a have been doing really good for me on a heavy…"

"A picture of the buzzer mounting distance from the pixhawk in the attachments.  Its a little disassembled but I'll put it back together the way I had it and test it without the buzzer connected."

Neil Baker replied to Randy's discussion Copter-3.3 beta testing
"The buzzer is pretty close but the pixhawk has its own vibration dampening separate from the buzzer.  here is a screen shot with Acc XYZ also. "

Neil Baker replied to Randy's discussion Copter-3.3 beta testing
"Any idea why the copter is switched in to any mode that requires the baro it has a 1 second full throttle climb then returns back to the requested altitude?  It hovers exactly at mid stick in stabilize.  No expos or anything in tx.  I…"

moglos replied to Neil Baker's discussion Point and shoot camera with video out?
"I don't know if the S100 is actually better, I'm a lot more comfortable sending the S100 out on longer missions I guess. It's lighter which is an advantage for longer missions, and it's half the price. It does have GPS which can…"

"Thanks for all of your quick replies, moglos. I find all of this very interesting. What makes the S100 better than the NEX5 for mapping?"

moglos replied to Neil Baker's discussion Point and shoot camera with video out?
"No prob with the NEX, I love it. I've read that in auto focus mode using a HDMI converter you can have periods where it takes a long delay between images (you should google it to get the details, it is only in specific situations). I've…"

Rick McEwen replied to Neil Baker's discussion Point and shoot camera with video out?
"I've heard good things about the NEX5. Mostly that they're high resolution means fewer shots from higher altitudes. I've also read some have had issues with the NEX5 not being capable of capturing large numbers of shots in rapid…"

moglos replied to Neil Baker's discussion Point and shoot camera with video out?
"But I also have a Sony NEX5 and that works great with live vid and triggering. You need a HDMI to analog converter. That adds about 1.5cm of width so the extra space means it might not fit on your gimbal."

moglos replied to Neil Baker's discussion Point and shoot camera with video out?
"No I haven't found a solution. I have put a separate board cam beside the S100 for FPV view. "

Rick McEwen replied to Neil Baker's discussion Point and shoot camera with video out?
"Hi Moglos, I have the same question as you? Did you find a solution for triggering the camera and getting video out for FPV at the same time? - Rick"
