    Hi.

    I am going to use AXI GOLD 2820/10 which I think is the closest to the Hacker. (1200KV vs 1185KV on the hacer, same weight, amp...).

    This china motor is also very similar to them , I also have it and will test it.

    I think the 2820/8 with 1500KV won't take 4S good

    Which bad ones did you use ? I have bevrc 3CH and FOXTECH 2CH.
    Good

    Bad

    The ghosting on the Foxtech one stayed. Their site says "Due to its heavy-duty components, you can even use it as an igniter for your fireworks or as a standard rc switch.", which makes me believe they aren't using a proper video switching IC and would explain the ghosting.

    Switching is the fasterst I seen,

    Ian - Does the Flytron switches fast as seen on their videos ? what OSD are you using ? do u have a video of yours in action ?
    On the foxtech the switching takes a lot of time

    Can I power my 12V equipment with it ?

    The switcher's IC is powered from your RX, but it only switches the video signal, not the power to your cameras. You power your 5V / 12V cameras separately.

    What goes on the + - wires to the cameras ? can I power them 12V on that rails or must I power them seperatly ? if seperatly - should I send only Signal or ground as well ?

    Do u store the other 2 in the bay ? where do you put your OSD ?
    Did you have to put extra weight ?

    If I come tail hevy I can mount the motor front to the mount. I don't want to do this because then the shaft is more likely to bend in a crash.

    I now fly with two cameras and the 2-channel version of this switch instead of a tilt rig. My original motivation was crashworthiness (I was constantly readjusting and fixing damage on the tilt rig following landings in tall grass). But I also like the redundancy, lack of moving parts, and option to use different types of lenses on the cameras. For example the downward facing camera is wide angle and mounted looking out a window on the bottom of the plane, so I have full tactical view of the ground.

    If your two cameras require the same voltage, you can run all three wires of each (GND, +VE and VID) through the Flytron module. I was using a +5V and a +12V camera however, so instead supplied the relevant power to each camera directly and used the Flyton module to switch just the VID signal from each through to my EzOSD.

    (I'm mindful this is a Zephyr II thread, so we shouldn't derail it, but perhaps take his offline.)
