As I was cruising around the other day I noticed my camera (upgraded version) had become unfocused. I tried to get it back in focus but couldn’t turn the lens with the front camera support attached. I took off the support and got the camera focused, but now I can’t get the front support back on. I can’t tell if there’s enough space between the lock ring and the lens for the support to fit, or if I’m just not pushing it on hard enough. Either way, there’s not much room for the support to fit.
I looked at a Swift 2 that I have and there’s not enough room for the support if I wanted to switch to it or another camera like it. I am planning on switching to a camera with 16:9 to match my goggles, but I need to know that I can make what I buy fit.
Do you have any tips, or even a link to detailed assembly instructions for the camera pod? I know I’ve read that we can use other cameras so I’m sure I’m missing something.
Thank you for your time
Hi Dylan, If the stock camera holder doesn’t fit your new 16×9 camera, we can 3d print you a custom one. You simply need to email support with your camera dimensions (diameter of the lens, etc) and we will do our best to design and print it out for you. Let
As for the focus issue, this is an odd problem. We can send you a 3D printed version of the camera holder if needed- it is a little bit more malleable (ABS) than the injection part and might just be flexible enough to fit around your lens .
I forgot to log in when I originally asked the question, this is still me.
I am referring to the support mount and the camera barrel. I can’t get the support to go back on the camera. I have the side plates loose so I can try to pry it open a little, but it just won’t go back on. I’ll try the suggestion you mentioned, but it’s more about the overall thickness of the support than the diameter of it. Worse case scenario is that I have to take the side plates all the way off because the RX antenna’s were kind of difficult to get where I wanted them.
The picture shows the same problem but on my Swift 2 camera. The camera is focused but the support won’t fit between the lock ring and the lens. I want to get a 16:9 camera but I’m assuming there might be the same issue. Do I just sand down the support until it fits?
Hello dRock, Thanks for your question.
When you say the mount does not fit are we talking about fitment between the mount and the camera lens barrel, or the mount and the side plates of the pod? The first few batches of the QQ190 RTF’s upgraded camera pods had a tight fit with the mount requiring pressure applied from the front to facilitate the side screws screwing into the holes. if you are having a fitment issue with the mount and the camera lens barrel i would recommend some fine sandpaper around a dowel to help. If you could attach pictures that would help.
