Seeing how the Headplays dont have onboard dvr, I went on the search for an inexpensive alternative and found this HMDVR for FPV Drones

Super simple install for anybody that has a little bit of soldering skills, works awesome!

A little comparison between the two cams, both did really well I think the RunCam Owl has the advantage just slightly only because its a dedicated night cam, but thats not taking anything away from the HS1177 either it does a great job.
