Does anyone have any pictures of the internals of the cameras, other than the circuit boards? I'm looking into extending the range of rotation and trying to get an idea of what's going on without picking up a screw driver.

Just the inside of the bottom of the rotating head at:

I am willing to fully open it up but I have not yet figured out how to open up the top of the camera. Removing the one screw in the top did not produce results. I can see the seams but not how to open it.

As soon as mu replacement arrives, I will dump the images and make them available. Currently, I lost my image 6

yeah for sure, I took mine with a special macro lens so I have all the details and i've tryed to take all the little number on motors, sensor modules
btw this is a real clone from dx FI8908W
its almost the same for FI8918W with fews smalls differences (like no output on FI8918W)
and I also took all the step to open completely the camera but I think on imageshack its appear in random order so it's a mess

Oh and Btw, there is no output speaker in mine (the speaker is not here but its should be easily to solder if someone dont have any and want one)
