    So a couple weeks ago I got my Q500 4K ready for flight, short lunchtime flight near my work. Batteries fully charged, turned my ground station on, turned my bird on and about 5 seconds after the camera started smoking... my camera is fried...

    WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED? Had not had any issues before this, worked great... all of a sudden, smoked. My bird still flies flawlessly... I don't get it!

    On that note, anyone have a camera, free, or real cheap would be awesome

    Had you flown the bird near salt water, salty sand, anytime in the last couple years? Haven't heard of one actually smoking out, but failure a few months after getting salt dust / mist is not unknown.
