For Fred......
Found a great use for the Caddx Turtle and ustilised the 60FPS for some great slow motion shots. A lovely day out making friends 😎😎😎

Found another great new spot for some close proximity fpv flying. It gave me a chance to test out the Lumenier AXII Long Range Antenna on my goggles for penetration. There were far too many people around to test long range today but the new long antenna is a great improvement over the stock anttenna, especially as I sit down to fly.

The Caddx Ratel allows a live FPV feed and a the Caddx Turtle v2 records the HD DVR, without the weight of a heavy HD GoPro. The Turtle V2 brings no real improvements over the original version apart from the awful sound.

Caddx Turtle v2 Cinematic GoPro Lens 🐢🦎 This Gecko is a Screamer !! FPV FREESTYLE ACTION FLIGHT

Caddx Turtle v2 Cinematic GoPro Lens 🐢🦎 This Quad is a Screamer !! FPV FREESTYLE ACTION FLIGHT (2 min 7 sec)


Too funny - the sound from the microphone on the Caddx Turtle always sounded like a harsh scream when powering up the Armattan Gecko . I didn't realise a real-life Gecko sounded so similar when it screamed! 😆

Not much time to fly but when I do wtih my favourtie 3 inch quad and a dedicated fpv camera like the Caddx Ratel it is such a pleasure. I have played with render settings have have settled on as it makes for a more pleasing 'cinematic flight' so I'll think I shall stick with this for now; all comments welcome.

The Ratel is amazing in low light and probably better for close proximity flying than in the daytime. Just need to work on my close proximity FLOW !
