    What are you using as a replacement camera? I have heard about the SJC camera. Does it work with the existing harness? I am not looking for professional quality. Just holiday and family shots.
    Does anyone have one for sale? The original camera?
    Thanks

    If you want to use FPV then you should probably go with the FC40 camera. The SJ cam will fit in the mount that comes with the P1 and is much better quality. th.jpg

    There are also a few GoPro clones out there. The GoPro and some of the clones use the same mount as the stock FC40 camera. It's very convenient, but just like marriage, has it's drawbacks.

    I know of none that fit in the same holder as the FC40 camera. Rolli, I think, is the manufacturer of the camera. Last time I looked, I couldn't even find a similar product on their site.

    Most anything you add will be heavier, which will reduce your flight time.
    Sorry, can't help you with replacing the original.

    Good luck, and if you find a replacement, please start a thread with all the relevant info.

    Thanks

    I did find a replacement. Now all I have to do is read on how to install the camera.
