I bought this to inspect the cylinders on a VW-based airplane engine. I like that it articulates so I can look back at the valves and spark plugs. I use it connected to an android-based Samsung Galaxy S3 smartphone and a usb-otg cable running CameraFi software. I could not get it to work with my Nexus 7.
Only complaint I have is sometimes the video freezes and it might take several seconds to get another frame. This might 100% be due to running it on my phone. It seems a little much to ask software on a non-rooted smartphone to handle video smoothly. The video is smooth on my desktop computer, but I don't have a computer that is convenient to take to my airplane to fully troubleshoot the problem. So far, I have only noticed the freezes when the camera is inside the cylinder, so I do wonder if the lights are overheating the camera with no airflow to cool it off inside my cylinder (it does get pretty warm).
All in all, this seems much better than the...
This thing really works! I bought 4 low cost endoscopes/borescopes with led lights that are not bright enough to get good images in dark places and are hard to point at what I want to look at. I use this for checking aircraft cylinders and it is as good or better than borescopes costing $5000. Hooked up to my computer, it provides bigger, brighter pictures than the $5000 scopes and it is easier to save pictures. It takes me about 2 minutes per cylinder to inspect both valves, the piston and the cylinder wall taking pictures as I go. Then I can share the pictures with the owner and save the pictures for my records. Since the cord is aligned with the articulating tip, I know where I am looking. I have included photos of a cylinder with good valves but where piston slap and a sliding wrist pin has worn the chrome cylinder wall plating showing that the cylinder, piston, wrist pin and rings need to be replaced long before failure. I have also included a photo of a brush (taken in a dark...
Used for Boroscoping aircraft cylinders. Very happy with the quality vs price. Recommended.
