Comment on FC40 Camera - Reverse Engineering by Paul E

Sat, 09 May 2015 21:39:15 +0000

I came across this thread and thought I would share some information, albeit not so technical but possibly helpful. Check this out .... The original of the FC40 camera? Now discontinued. The manf is now out of the consumer camera market. There are a selection clones on Banggood and similar sites. FC 40 cam was available as an individual item but I've not seen it recently. (Ties in with discontinued) I really like my FC40 but must admit that there are better and more easily hacked cameras in this size and price point. For me the point of the fc40 is the self contained combo of a camera that operates through a screen found in most homes. I have been impressed with the range. I like using a 10" tablet for my screen. I'm thinking of building a mount for the screen similar to quanum goggles or hk diy goggles but maybe clipping to baseball cap. Any thoughts? - my first thought is to use a smaller screen in such a setup.

Comment on Mobile Browser Touch Events: Nice if you can get them by John

Yes, it took a long time before every browser actually started supporting touch events, and I agree that it should have happened way sooner. But then again, smartphones really started becoming a real thing only after 2011, so there was no need for developers to work on features very few people could use.

I believe that 'Y' isn't a vowel in this content if you were to use it in another way maybe it would be classed as a vowel but 'Y'itself OR with a word isn't a vowel in he case

Its about the temperature, the smc has the minimum temp set and with the time, is not enought, so at 70º the module fails, just disable wifi and bluetooth will work perfect. install smcFanControl and set the constant minimum at 50%.

Sank my FC40 into a swamp last weekend, swam out to get it with Ice still on half the pond. Retrieved the quad and besides a batter issue seems to work fine. The camera however did not. Put in rice for 3 days - lens cleared up but will not power up or take a charge. Any suggestions? Can I just buy a replacment (been searching for 2 days can't seem to find one). DJI has no response. Not sure breaking it open will solve anything. Suggestions?

For experts in both Ol and leaflet could I get a few examples of something that's possible in Ol that isn't in leaflet? This is not a challenge, I am just curious what people are using the power of Ol for.b
