I regret to announce the closure of TMG - Ingenieurbüro UG (haftungsbeschränkt), doing business as TheMissingGear, by end of 2017. The very last camera units are now available in my store.
Analog 3D-cameras for multi-rotor aircraft were always a niche product and after a brief rush in 2014/2015 the demand steadily decreased. This was certainly due to the price tag, but electronic components procurement cost and manufacturing cost were never low enough to be comparable in sales price with standard (monoscopic) FPV cameras.
Nowadays we all are used to buy overseas at bargain price level with free shipping service and because of this situation it is pretty useless to continue the 3D-business in its present form.
However the last 4 years of entrepreneurship were a great experience for me. I've learned so many things and I witnessed a complete product life-cycle from concept sketch to scrap box. It was cool to be responsible for everything, but it's also great to bring it to an end when the time has come.
A big thanks to my customers who supported my business over the years. I'll try to give support for my cameras in future as good as I can. In case someone else is interested in buying or licensing the camera firmware and/or schematics please contact me. This website will remain online for reference, but the store will be closed when the last camera unit is sold.
We are committed to the development, manufacturing and marketing of small electronic and electro-optical devices for professionals and hobbyists.
At present we are focused on equipment for RC-controlled vehicles like multicopters, airplanes, boats or cars, but we are open-minded for other applications with our products as well.
Our products are designed and made in Germany. Product safety and environmental protection is not an empty promise for us - our products are compliant with relevant regulatory directives and have successfully passed intense test and qualification procedures before market launch.
