PenCam SD Power Question

Recommended Posts

Mr.RC-Cam,

Just did the Pencam SD project and it worked beautifully. I use it on my EZ Star. Thank you!

I want to use an external battery to power the camera through the servo extension cable (for movie use on rockets). Can I do this and what would be the lightest method using std batteries?

I want to yank out the battery holder, but I am not sure what the round piece is attached it w/ 2 wires going back to the PCB. Is it OK to do this?

I suggest 4 each AAA or 2/3 AAA NiMH cells, connected via the USB.

That is the piezo beeper. You can move it.
