Tbh I've been really busy, not had much time to fly anything and with conditions being crap, hopefully in the new year I'll have some new projects on the go, mostly to do with HAM radio, will certainly fly again soon. FTR I hate FB too   :D Merry Christmas

Upgrading X4 to X4c

Has anyone ever tried upgrading their Hubsan X4 to the camera version?

It looks like it might be a snip to do for just £17 with a 2mp camera module and shell from bang good.

I guess the main pcb is exactly the same on both models.  :hmm:

Not exactly, but I have managed to downgrade haha.

The camera board is totally independent of the main board, aside from power - find +/- pads on the main control board, solder the camera board to it. The other thing to take into account is that the H107C has slightly wider motors than the H107L - they will not fit into the H107C shell.

Went ahead and got myself the 2mp camera module, a 107c shell and a couple of extra batteries just cos they were such good value. And at a couple of quid for the shell, it';ll either work, not work or I';ll make it work.

If it won';t work I';ll just Velcro the  board to the underside with a little plug for powe, then I can just rrrrip it off and bung it on the big quad whenever I like.

Starting to like banggood a lot now.

The X4C uses 8mm motors whilst the X4 uses 7mm so the motors won';t fit in the new shell.

I suggest you order some from Micro Motor Warehouse as they supply the best motors you can get for the X4';s.

These ones should do the job... http://micro-motor-warehouse.com/collections/all/products/cl-0820-17
