Using a momentary switch to control the X5C FPV module

After I crashed the X5C a few times with my new FPV module installed suddenly one of the wires was separated from its mini jst connector. That was a good time for a modification. The idea was to also be able to use the module on other quads and being able to start and stop recording.


The simplest solution is to connect the yellow and black wire to a momentary switch. I glued the switch with some epoxy to the housing. The rubber band keeps the wires a bit in place. I lose the ability to control the recording using the transmitter though. This must now be done by hand.


  • Short press: take a picture.
  • Long press (about one second) starts recording. Short press while recording: stop.
