How To Replace Camera and Cable in DJI Air Unit and Caddx Vista

Here’s how I normally replace the camera or coaxial cable that connects the camera and Air Unit or Caddx Vista. These parts are user replaceable by design, so it’s very easy to do.

The process is quite self-explanatory with the photos, if you have any questions just let me know in the comment or on my forum, https://intoFPV.com

Why Replace Camera and Cable?

  • If you damage the camera
  • If you want to change the cable to a longer or shorter one
  • If you want a lighter camera like the Nebula Micro or Nebula Nano, you can just swap it out as they are compatible with both DJI Air Unit and Caddx Vista

    I have the same question as David’s plus some extra: The DJI unit not only includes DVR but can record locally at 1080p. I’d prefer to use the DJI air for that reaon but I can’t fit the Airs big ol’ camera head into my assembly. I CAN fit the Caddix one though.
    Can the Caddix camera head record 1080p to the Air units DVR? This is a very important question for me. Thanks!

      Yes, 1080p recording is a feature of the bigger VTX module. But I think it’s worth it though, the smaller Caddx camera for 1080p. The image quality can be handled by 720p and it might not look that different in your final video.

    Hi Oscar, just to be clear can the DJI air unit cable can be used on the Caddx Vista unit and vice versa?
    Thanks in advance,
    David
