Halloa guys

Another side-by-side with the Runcam 5 & Foxeer Box 2 camera's!
This time I'm sending them up there in their 1080P 60fps Superview modes...

What will you learn from this video?
+ how they handle vibrations.. (jello or not);
+ that 1080P60 S-view is the Runcam's worst mode.. (the Next firmware update will fix this)
+ pretty much un-eventfull otherwise..
