Akk eio DVR fpv camera first test indoors (1 min 32 sec)

Ok my first test of the akk EIO recorded directly on the camera on sd card.
Look pretty good , no lag in the fpv footage that I could tell.
Picture quality is ok, better on the recorded video than the YouTube upload, guess yt reduced quality quite a bit there for some reason.
Light handing was ok, but as all these camera struggled a little with the direct sunlight streaming in through the windows but still very flyable.
I will upload more soon.

Currently only 12 but normally only 15 odd anyway so absolute bargain in my book.

Here is the same video but via Vimeo because youtube compressed and messed up the video so much I thought I better show it in a better light.

I got this from banggood to compliment my taranis for taking out with me when I don't want to carry a big bulky tx,
It comes with a futaba reciever but I flashed it with frsky firm ware so I can use it with my frsky quads.
I knew it would not be same quality as my taranis so did not expect much from the gimbals to be honest and it turned out that my expectations were about right....
The gimbals are defo better than any stock toy tx I have used but does still feel very toy like and there seems to be a dead band programmed in to cover the poor centering of such gimbals which makes flying acro indoors on my b06 brushless whoop very difficult, however in level mode it's fine and perfectly flyable indoors, I think outside in acro it would be fine too.
It's small but not too small like the supplied toy txs and fits my hands ok.

There are 2 aux channels accessed via back buttons,
One is on off the other has 3 positions, useful for flight modes and buzzers.

Some pictures, as you can see the finish is quite nice and it seems sturdy and well made.
