A ride in the rain.. Problem, and possible solution.

Shared by Riders, My C3 with 90 degree lens, on a motorcycle has a problem in the rain. The wind keeps droplets of water stuck to the face of the recessed lens (Lens is waterproof, no water come into lens).  I figured a convex lens cover might help the wind blow water off to the sides, instead of keeping it in place. So, I purchased a 21mm watch crystal and stuck it to the face of the camera with some 2-part urethane adhesive, applied with a small syringe.   The lens attached with Diameter 21mm watch crystal, The Out diameter of aluminum lens case is 23mm. Looks cool!   Now looking for rain to test,Tips: When I got home, and hit a small bump entering my driveway (low speed, no wind), the water drip fell off, You can also see from the effect in the video near the end where I stopped for a light. There, the water slumped to the bottom, clearing the view a bit. (The screen shot is from 720P, NOT 1080P)

INNOVV C3 on bike and fiber optic cable to my dashboard

With my install you can see that I did fiber optic cable to my dashboard, so I can see C3 status while driving. C3 is started together with bike ingnition and it shuts down when I shut engine down. I used your cigarete charger PCB for 12V to 5V – it is nice small PCB. I put everything into plastic box (IPOD box) so it is waterproof even when I am crossing river on my bike. Where the lens installed The fiber optic cable installed on the cut off plastic holder The fiber optic cable installed and direct contact the indicator LED The LED status seeing through the fiber optic cable The fiber optic cable on dashboard, it is easy to see on day and night time The recording unit in IPOD box, which is waterproof now The connections through the box  The box installed under seat   

BMW F700GS with Innovv C3

I powered the control unit from a USB power adaptor I have installed on the bike. I’m using the shorter supplied USB PC cable, not the 2 wire DC USB power cable. That permits me unplug the cable form the power outlet and plug it into my tablet or smartphone using an OTG [On The GoUSB cable] or direct into my laptop to download the files without directly accessing the C3 unit or unplugging the micro SD card. C3 camera installed above Hi Beam headlight. Note the bracket is a temporary mock up to test vibration (none) and placement (works for me). I’ll cut this down and weld it up and paint it flat black to match headlight back shell. Cable is yet to be concealed into the bodywork. Note – this bracket looks like its sitting on the top of the headlight shell, it is not, it’s a 2-3mm above it. I made a small round cut into the lower edge of the screen to provide clearance for the camera. This stops the screen vibrating the camera. Note the screen is a powerbronze model screen, not the stock screen, but the same could be done to the stock screen. I used the supplied INNOVV threaded clip to hold camera bolted thru the mock up bracket. I side mounted it to get the overall height closer to the top of the headlight and reduce the cut out to the screen. Note the bracket is a rough mock up out of a couple of pieces of 3mm steel and will be rebuilt as a single piece without the nut and bolt shown.  I removed the inner washer from the LH headlight bolt and put the camera bracket in its place and re-bolted the headlight thru the camera bracket.  I have tried the control unit in two locations, both under the false tank cover as there is not much room under the seat in this model.  I will probably move the unit into my top box when I get an extension Mini HDMI cable.  The above position is on top of the airbox and there is approx. 25mm between the air box and the false cover. This could probably do with a plexi cover over it to stop any driving rain coming from the left (front) over the battery and into the control unit. The Blue Tack is my way of securing and sealing the slide switch on the control unit. The white stuff is self-adhesive Velcro holding the unit in place onto the top of the airbox.  This other position just works as well, moving the unit further back. With half of the sticky Velcro still attached to the unit, it makes a snug fit that does not move around at all. Extra HDMI Cable length is coiled into the valley between the airbox and the battery, just above the white Velcro in the image above.  

INNOVV C3 camera rear mount for Kawasaki Ninja 250r

This is a simple camera mount for the Innovv C3 to fit the 2008-2012 Kawasaki Ninja 250r motorcycle by firacer98, Looks smart and cool!! Just thought I’d share this mount with you guys. I designed it in Sketchup and printed it on my Da Vinci 3D printer. It uses the existing hole that is present on the fender. The C3 is almost exactly the same size as the hole! The adapter will fit the barrel of the C3 quite snug so it won’t turn.  It’s designed to fit on the stock rear fender. The stock fender has 3 holes, and the center hole is practically the same size as the diameter of the C3 bullet camera. It seemed like a logical place to put it. I included the original Sketchup file in case you need to modify it.    It was printed on a Davinci 3D printer at 400microns (0.4) layer height with 20% fill. During my test prints, I’ve done them at 5% fill and it worked too, just not as strong but it’ll also work.   It uses two M6, 25mm bolts to fasten. You can probably go with shorter bolts, like maybe 15mm since the thickness of the mount is only 10mm anyways. I only used 25mm cause that’s what I had. No nuts need since the bolts are pretty tight in the holes. I would also suggest washers as well to cover up the existing holes better. I painted mine with black vinyl paint since pink doesn’t match my bike.   I uploaded the file to Thingiverse if anyone is interested in printing their own. http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:687322
