In my first Caddx Ratel night test video it was not visible how dark it actually was outside. Inspired by RCG user TinkleWid aka Silver Steve I added a Ratel to the Caddx Turtle on my Armattan Gecko because the FPV feed of the Turtle is just bad.

With both cameras on board you can directly compare the Ratel feed (the small screen) to the Turtle's HD record. The Turtle gives a good impression how dark it was to the eyes about half an hour after sunset while the Ratel made it bright and comfortable to fly.

One of the first tests of the Caddx Tarsier in a custom build based on a GEPRC CX3 frame. Unfortunately this Tarsier didn't save any sound for some reason, so what you hear in the background comes from the mic on the VTX recorded by the Fatshark goggles. The image is impressive tho, no jello and quite sharp even on 1080p.

This was supposed to be a very short test because there were some adjustments to make. Usually I don't fly near birds but a curious buzzard kept flying over my head and literally seemed to ask for a dance. This species is known for exceptional flying skills but doesn't catch prey in mid-air like falcons so there was no risk for either the bird or the tiny 213 grams copter.
