Price $49.99 / £38.79

Like it or lump it those dark evenings are drawing closer in , pretty soon for a lot of us the dark evenings mean we either find somewhere with flood lighting or move indoors to get our adrenaline fix.
Over the last couple of months as ive flown more and more FPV the approaching dark nights have been sat at the back of my mind, a couple of weeks ago i was still able to fly at 10:30 but now its 8:00 soon 6:00 so now is the time to grab an FPV cam that can replace my current one and give me more of a chance to fly later rather than be cooped up , if i grab it now i still have at least a few weeks were i can tune the image to my liking whilst still keeping a reasonable amount of light.

There are a couple of models around but im going to grab the Runcam Owl Plus, the price is pretty good and its a proven model so it makes sense to me.

I decided to install Dronin on my Robocat as a test to see if i could get a tighter tune than my manual "random clicking of anything"

It was so solid i decided to flash it to my Eachine Racer 250.

Below are RAR compressed .UAV files taken before AND after running Dronin's Autotune if you feel like having a quick gander.

On both quads IBUS was used.
On both quads CC3D.

Ok i have had a few pm's asking why i have deleted certain links from my personal blog so rather than answer each one, as it concerns my blog its simpler to just reply here.
I removed the posts for 2 main reasons , first and foremost i dont like being lied to , i forgave the first time then it happened again, that in truth was enough for me and enough reason for me to remove the posts , secondly and its just again personal choice , i dont agree with their idea of "reviews" , there is nothing nefarious going on i just prefer to not take part in that side of things.
I just want to be clear that no one has asked me to remove those posts i am doing it purely for the reasons above. The links that are left on are put there because i want to put them there to provide to information to anybody reading.

Anyway, back to posting nonsense........
