Amazing SD Raw Footage 😲😲 (Apologies for the swearing)
Test of light handling, colour range and bitrate with the Caddx after sunset.

Caddx Ratel 🐼 Modified vs Stock FPV Footage - Caddx Tarsier not required, cheap Topsky DVR is!! (2 min 33 sec)

I think the Caddx Ratel coupled with a Turtle (if you already have one) may beat buying a new Tarsier. No HD footage for a change but the image captured from the goggles is good enough in low light.

This was my first day flying with the Ratel Starlight camera and I got stuck in a tree with my first lipo. After 5 hours I managed to get it back with some rope and a stick but I just about found the energy to fly a couple of lipos after sunset and before total darkness. Great to have a dedicated FPV Camera especially as I've been flying a lot with the Caddx Turtle lately. it makes such a difference to be able to see in low light and have no latency issues!

Personally , I feel the stock footage is great for visibility in the shadows and makes the early evening feel like daytime; great for Golden Hour flights. Amazingly the footage from my old TopSky Prime 1S Goggles is really good and better than the image produced by my trusty VRD2-Pro Goggles (Topsky sent me a new board to rectify the receiver issue).

Trying to make the Caddx Footage more dramatic but I may have overdone it 😏

Test of New Caddx Turtle Special Glass Lens and ND Filter (N8)

I had a lovely day flying in the sun among trees with leaves for the first time this year. It was the perfect opportunity to test out the new Caddx Turtle Special Glass Lens and ND Filter from Caddx.us. I am unsure how this compares to the Runcam Split Mini Glass Lens.

I also got to practise some smooth close proximity with a few new trees without fear of hitting any ghost branches. For want of a better name and until I'm corrected my new move is called the 🌳 "Canopy CorkScrew" 🌳 !! It's funny how I seem to automatically follow the same lines when looking back at footage of the day's runs.

My last Caddx Turbo Eye Lens got scratched a few weeks ago so I had to wait to receive my glass lens which hopefully will be more resilient. On first look the Caddx glass Lens is definitely an improvement on the Caddx plastic lenses. There is less need for any colour grading and the image seems much clearer. I did to bring the colours out a little on this video.

When fitting the ND Filter (N8) to the glass lens I had to use some BluTak as it's not a perfect fit. However, the ND Filter stayed on all day despite my crashes. The ND Filter takes away some of the glare and reduces the sharpness a little to...Continue Reading
