Is that meant to be the Eachine thing?

https://www.banggood.com/Eachine-ProDVR-Pro-DVR-Mini-Video-Audio-Recorder-for-FPV-Multicopters-p-1061196.html

Wonder what';s going to turn up in my post box.  :shrug: Any bets?  ::)


aye the board I ordered is identical to the pro-dvr (I think Ive fried mine) so I ordered one and set about making a mount for it to fit into my latest frame to function as a onboard fpv dvr (yay no signal noise viewing action)... but then this erm....thingie.... turned up instead

let me just get the documentation to check voltages, wiring pinout and..... oh wait.....havnt got that.

maybe If just have a look at the board for the pinout labelling...... oh wait...... it doesnt have those either.

maybe Ill just go online and download the schematics..... of course Id need to know what this thing is to find them so..... yep havnt got that either :rolleyes:


It';s ok the wires are colour coded to something that makes sense.

Errrrrr ok maybe not.  :rolleyes:

wouldnt be such a chore if all I had to do was identify what was video in and what was out.....but then..... which wires are power?.... and is it actually 5v??.... or is it 3.2v???..... and what am I gonna tell them when they eventually ask me to send the incorrect item back????...... "sorry its a smouldering mess....thats ok tho right?" :evil

The only boards I';ve seen with that wheel type rocker switch is the little DIY VRX cards.
I';m in my van stuck in traffic at the minute so I can';t really have a proper look on the site to confirm, but it might be worth Googling it to see if that';s what they sent.
I need a pay rise........ Though I'd settle for a reduction in the amount of hours I need to work to get the same money.

shawdreamer

yer saw them while searching but that was about the only similarity anything had, if it had arrived without the jst wired plugs also id have guessed it was actually a spare part item generally not sold for any other reason but with the jst';s too it would suggest its a diy part but im fecked if i can find anything about it. :shrug:

Banggood use various posters in various countries, the labelling might show it comes from the Seychelles, Thailand, even Sweden in the case of LiPos, this means nothing.


Bad Raven

I';m confused!

Did the DVR board come uncased? (The connection info is usually printed on the case!!)

Exactly what was actually ordered?

shawdreamer

essentially I ordered a uncased dvr (which by all purposes is a Eachine ProDVR without its case) as I was planning on chucking the case to save size/weight and fitting the board into my newest frame design.

basically this...

Banggood could be so good if it wasn';t so ******! They have so much stuff you can';t find anywhere else, but the clones, lack of support and questionable quality really puts me off. That said I pretty much always get spares and frsky stuff from them. In fact I just received some new tiny whoop motors!

  • a set of Racerstar RS20A V2 Blheli_S ESC';s to replace my burnt and otherwise cooked Banggood Wizard ESC';s ...

  • a free rubberised battery strap

  • a 8 way JST-JH header plug for my FC

  • an interesting 45deg SMA adapter (unsure how useful this might be but wanted it anyway lol)

  • a set of RP-SMA to SMA adapters (because I forgot that my VTX has a RP-SMA plug on it)



I know exactly what I am doing tonight  :cool:

I use a 45deg SMA for my patch antenna on my FatShark diversity module to point it forward.

the digital postman brought me a nice email from BangGood saying...

"sorry about the wrong item delivery, here';s your money back, where really sorry please keep the incorrect item if it can be any use to you, the manufacturer has been informed of their error and the listing will be changed accordingly also.  If we can locate any back stock of the original item you were after we';ll send it you free of charge, sorry again"
(paraphrased)

If I remember correctly it was a miniDVR that had no documentation? If so just order the eachines miniDVR and remove the case. There is a FW that gives full screen on pal and doesn';t chop bits off. If you need the FW let me know.
I try :-)

shawdreamer

have one....or "had", Id done all the FW and had it working just fine in my groundstation setup but at some point I messed about with it an reconnected it wrong somewhere which fried the dvr, the board was meant to replace it.

have had a go at wiring this weird board they sent me and got it to passthrough a video feed (didnt try audio) but the board doesnt live-up or offer any functionality atall, its a bit of a strange one as these dvr usually have a video in & out, a audio in & out and a 5v & gnd for board power, this one has the first lot but no power connections, nor any sign on the board were any should be fitted.....makes no sense to me?

Or when she starts whining about you spending money just say to her "OK, I suppose it IS an expense I could live without............ So pack your bags and sod off". :)

The only real complaint I get is that I don';t crash enough, so the place is well overloaded. It';s the Planes and Heli';s though which of course are the real space takers.

New toy today. I';ve been predominantly using my gas soldering iron for a while now because it';s more convenient than waiting 5 minutes for my old mains one to heat up. Trouble is, The gas one does tend to spread the heat about through it';s "Exhaust ports".

So When I saw BangGood selling off TS100 irons for 40 notes + change I decided to treat myself. I already had several suitable spare PSU';s so it was just the iron I needed....... Oh, And a few spare tips. :)

Out of the box the temperature reading was all over the place, So after trying a few other tips to no avail I flashing the firmware (Yeah, It';s a soldering iron that';s sofware can be updated. Strange new world and all that. LOL !). That did it. It';s now working as expected. It';s a pretty interesting tool to be honest. It';s adjustable from 100 to 400';C and self adjusts to keep it where you set it (Read that there';s a tweaked firmware out there somewhere that takes it up to 450';C and adds more features), It';s got a motion sensor in it so it can tell if you';ve not used it for a couple of minutes and drop to a pre defined standby temperature, Or shut down completely, It also heats up pretty damn quickly. It just needs a 12 to 24v DC input to work, So I could even run it off a Li-Po for out and about if I make up a cable.

As long as the tips last a reasonable while I think I could be happy with this one. I';ll post my findings after I give it
a couple of builds worth of stick. :)

Also got some wire braiding tube and a few of those carbon fibre battery skid plate thingies because when I rebuild my Outlaw 180 I';m thinking I should give underslung battery packs a go, And the thought of belly flopping onto an unprotected Li-Po just feels wrong to me.
