Found a lovely new spot in the woods that I had to share with some cows while I wait for my Caddx Turtle to arrive from China

I've been sticking with the lightweight Quelima SQ12 and lens mod while waiting for my Caddx Turtle or Turtlet to arrive from China. In the meantime Albert Kim has a great review @ Caddx Turtle 🐢 HD FPV Camera Review + Giveaway 🎁📷👍

Runcam HD 2 Camera versus Quelima SQ12 on the 🦕 HGLRC XJB 145 🦕 - Single Run on a Tattu 4S 650mah Lipo

After testing out the Runcam 2 HD I decided to go back to using the Quelima SQ12 with lens mod. The flights look more dramatic and gives that rushing feeling.

The 3 inch drone is a little too under-powered to carry the 49grams of the Runcam 2 HD and so it is way more fun to fly with the 17gram SQ12 with mount.

My cousin kindly lent me his Runcam 2 hd with wide lens on my 3 inch HGLRC XBJ 145. I fancied flying in 1080p with 60fps but was worried about the extra weight.

I flew as carefully as possible but still managed to crash several times due to the extra load. The punch out is still impressive but obviously not as fast and the additional momentum is something to contend with 🤣. However, it was fun flying until the tie-strap broke on my last crash. I had quick fly after that without the Runcam and boy I forgot how fast the XJB really is !!

Overall I think the Runcam HD has a great wide picture and I don't mind the fisheye 180 degree lens. However, I believe the Quelima SQ12 with lens modification provides a much more exciting flight as the central image is focused and the edges are slightly blurred. In addition, the reduced weight makes the SQ12 720p camera very attractive. More testing is required.

MY new PIDS are good to fly with but there some propwash which is impossible to tune out as expected especially when coming straight down and flat (tilt only at 20 degrees). More testing is required with more tilt but I think I will enjoy flying with less weight. Stay tuned to see what I do.

A full run with the new lens mod in the dappled light of the wood. It look pretty amazing compared to the horrid stock lens with the infrared filter.

(the Quelima SQ13 like the FireFly is out now on GearBest but there is some good video footage to show they are similar) The Firefly wins slightly perhaps.

Taking a session to learn how to drop in starting with a spiral move and then when more confident rolling in as smoothly as possible.

Using a new lens on the Quelima SQ12 which give a rushing feeling which I really like. There has been no processing with Adobe Premier Pro.
