I've gone ahead and printed the latest design of the fpv ball.
Now the Field of view is nearly completly clear of the walls. Additionally I fixed all the small tolerance / clearance issues I had. The print took about 1h on coarse settings.
Soon I will record some footage and upload it.
Now I want to desing a 3d printable version of the inside of the ball.
This would fix the camera position.
Also it looks cool with the green filament I'm using.
The image quality is really bad.
Partly because the camera brightens up the image because it sees a border all around (camera cutout too small), but mainly because the antenna is just in very weird angels when thrown so the reception is extremly bad most of the time.
I cut open a tennis ball and put in the fpv camera. To fix it's postition and dampen the impact when catching (do not let it hit the ground) I put some foam around it.
On the back side of the ball I cut a slit to put in and out the battery.
1. Put in the fpv camera
2. Glue on the back with hot glue so that it could be removed if neccessary
3. (Optional: Cut open a tennis ball and put it in for added protection)
4. Connect battery
