I decided to use my Christmas bonus to get myself a FPV setup and still to this day cant get it working here is a video i took in hopes that someone might be able to point me in the right direction. Thanks for any help at all it will be very much appreciated.
Welcome to the forum! It is hard to tell if there are any wiring errors in your video. Basically because you are getting no signal it is going to be a tx/rx problem so that rules out a camera problem for now. I would suggest trying other channels, those Chinese manuals sometimes are not correct. Also try it outside away from your house too.
well, you did do it right per instructions but if i remember correctly that was a major issue with those boscam 5.8ghz manuals...misprint....going to give it a try on mine right now to confirm....be right back with you
YUP thats it 1,2,3 DOWN 4 UP....complete reverse of manual instructions. I do get some signal doing it the way you have it but it is VERY poor...your particular brand monitor may just have less tolerance for poor signal thereby defaulting to blue screen. something to keep in mind for future use....blue screens have been the death of more than one fpv plane.....would much rather see a signal fuzzy as hell than pretty blue.
Strange wire colors on camera connector. see attached link for proper pinout to camera on this Tx
Right to left = black/ground, red/12vout, yellow/video http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1384336
there are a few versions of this boscam type TX floating around, video pin is in same place on both but the 12v and ground may be reversed from one to another version. I sorta thought that was solved a long time ago....matter of fact i had to flip my 12v and ground on my Tx. is there any indication the camera is powered up? a light....any warmth? may just be a simple matter of camera pinouts not matching up to Tx pinouts
would take a pic of mine but that wouldn't do you any good as my cam is powered from my osd not my tx. i will shut up now, i am sure in the next or so someone on here with chime in who is a bit more familiar with those foxtech direct plug and play cams....stick with man, can be frustrating but boy when that first image flashes across your monitor it feels like you just won the lottery.
Well heres the funny thing the RX is from hobby king i messed up wiring my first TX so i orderd a new camera and TX. But the wiring should be right on mine i guess i could get a multi meter tomorrow and test the pins.
