Hello Everyone, Nice to join you'll here. I was trying if mini ready to fly quadcopter can be used a web camera or FPV

So far i tired to use the usb cable attached to the mini quad with the laptop.

Tried to update driver, hardware setting, etc.. nothing working.

On the laptop when i go into the camera and the select change camera option i only get dark blank screen ?

No able to view it ? possible to make it work ? what is the tech issue..

Any one can please suggest...

Thanks

For data transfer through USB cable to the laptop you must have a fully charged battery in your quadcopter and you must turn the drone on. Make, model of your quad.

There's nothing in the manual in the post #4 link to suggest that camera images can be sent any where except to the SD card.

yes....thanks..
Well, knock me over with a feather but if that were true, good chance you would not be here asking.

If modification to the existing system is what you are after, perhaps you should have made that clear in the beginning.
Only advice that can be forwarded in that case would be to ask around on the sites that specialise in this type of thing.
RC Groups might be a good start.

Edit:....... appears you already have with no replies....I'd say offhand it's not possible or too hard basket or not worth the bother.

My description is how to use it as a USB web camera for every other quadcopter except yours.
Given the lack of information you provided initially. And yes it can be done and has been done as you described it with an app and an SD card. "Hoping to keep you in suspense". Toodaloo.
