I like the other vid better, tree dodging takes crazy skills too, but I the video with the cliffs feels more like flying.

Also got to test a new nano camera, Foxeer Predator 4. Colors might seem a bit strange at times, but it's intended for racers, to see the gates better. I did receiver some suggestions to tweak the settings, and have more natural colors. Will try that soon, but for now it looks like this:

Good flying Solo.
The camera is not my preferred one . Maybe good to see gates but I hate when there is some color shift.

Thanks. Foxeer did send me some settings that should make the image more natural. I also asked if they would make the Falkor in nano size, but that was impossible at the moment. Then again, a while ago, a small camera with this resolution was also impossible.

As promised, a new video with the changed settings:

And some darting around with one of my 3 inch favorites, the ER349, where the E stands for Eachine, but they had very little to do with making this quad, it's basically a Diatone product:

Nice Geo. Good control and smooth flying. Image looks really good, except the blurry part left. How old is that camera btw? You could contact RunCam about it. They will probably suggest adding small spacers on one side and see if the image improves, as in becomes uniform in focus over the entire image. If not, put the spacers on the other side, and try again. If you get a uniformly focuses image, you might have to re-focus the lens to get it fully in focus again. But you may get a replacement camera if you indicate not feeling too comfortable opening your camera, and messing with it, unless you have a backup.

Thanks Solo.
I will add a spacer like I did on the righthand side.
The camera is maybe 3 months old.
I will try the spacer and maybe refocus the lens .
I am confortable with opening the lens.
By the way the lens looks like new.
I will add a spacer before the next flight.
Thank you for your input.
