I soldered the leads to the pos and neg of the cams servo connector.
(back side of connector inside the camera)
Now the camera gets its power from the 180QX in flight and
power from the usb port when connected to a computer.

I did the same to the second bad cam but also added
a 3 inch umx power plug coming out of the cam to
power my Spektrum Ultra Micro FPV Camera.
You my friend are awesome, I just bought the 180 qx today, and could never power on the camera without plugging it into the usb.I had a feeling the battery was dead, and tested the voltage on a meter, which was zilch. i cut the leads and soldered them to the servo connector pins and now I have power. Also, I was afraid I was going to have a sd card problem but did not, I bought a Dane class 10 16gb from target and everything was good.

Anyone looking to do this, black wire to the left pin, and red in the center pin and that's it.
