Nice. What's the latency on the tv out? Is it flyable as an FPV camera or will we still need a separate flight camera?

I think I saw something about 45 to 50ms.

Why not order from runcam.com directly? The price is about the same and their service is great!

Recover a hanged RC3?


I received mine for review. I tried to do some tests with the Android app. When I accessed a couple of videos directly from the app, my RC3 hanged. I cannot power off or reboot the camera. I cannot remove the battery to shut off the camera. I couldn't find a reset button so I kept trying and trying... then it responded and powered off.

What is the correct way to fix a hanged RC3?

I saw that too, but I was wondering if that's been confirmed yet.

I was already on BG ordering my Shuriken X1, and the RC3 was $91 (instead of $99).

Instructions say to press power and wifi buttons simultaneously. I think it was in an Albert Kim Youtube video.

Haven't seen anyone film a stopwatch and the video output yet.

I read the instructions again and found it. It's at page 11, under "Forced Shutdown".

Glad you found it. Hopefully, I will know soon enough. BG just shipped my RC3 via IB.

Thank you for sharing the video. I wonder if the RunCam 3 was recording during the latency test? Some camera's latency gets a lot worse during recording.

For the latency test, the YouTube'r could try using a stopwatch (on smartphone) setup, instead of turning the LED on/off and then calculating time/frames of the video footage. For example:
FPV Camera Latency - Testing and comparison (Mobius, 808#16, GoPro and FatShark) (11 min 23 sec)
