🐇 🐇 🐇 SPOT THE RABBIT 🐇🐇 🐇

🍂🍂🍂 FANTASTIC AUTUMN COLOURS 🍂🍂🍂

https://youtu.be/27rfD15TPQo

Managed to catch the beautiful Autumn colours in some unexpected winter sunshine. Climbed over some nasty brambles to get here but only had my last 2 lipos to fly with. But what a result 👍👍👍👍👍

I am really loving this Caddx Camera fpv feed which is greatly improved with this lens. I also do not have a problem with the Caddx Turtle latency

GoPro replacement M12 Lens similar to https://www.banggood.com/HD-3_0Megap...18277502201801

Less Fish Eye:
Pleasingly, the initial result is better than the similar run with the stock lens

No props in view and Less Jello:
Tuning Betaflight 3.5.2 and getting used to feedforward so quad not locked in but no real jello with new props and tight camera screws.

Caddx Turtle Comparison Lens Test with GoPro Lens Upgrade

A quick test of an old glass GoPro lens on the Caddx Turtle after my plastic Caddx stock lens started to pick up tiny scratches. Probably could do with tuning down the sharpness on the Caddx Turtle settings. Also getting annoyed about the spot on the camera sensor (a free gift from Caddx) which I should try to clean one day.

No tuning, No HD Camera, No New Parts = No Fear !!

It is amazing to fly with no abandon. Didn't worry about bent props or crashing and learnt a few tricks in the process. The SQ12 is not as nice as the Caddx Turtle but I still like the rushed feeling with the lens modification. If only Caddx would have a better lens.

I also got a little dog-revenge as this quad has been bitten twice!

Shame I left the timestamp on but at least we know this video has not been sped up or slowed down!!

Still using a broken motor but testing the dynamic range during sunset. The camera really lights up the shaded areas when flying although there is some lens glare.

1080p @ 60FPS is great as I can now use slow motion starting with a cool backwards hop around a tree. Not sure what that move is called?
