Anybody have any idea if this will play nicely with UHF and 1.3 ghz?

I pre-ordered. Hoping the lag isn't a killer. Time will tell...

I really can't image any cable with that many conductors in it, being very flexible for use with a Pan& Tilt system in a plane. I personally wouldn't trust moving that cable to much or a failure is likely over time. Not a very rugged design at all.
This camera is definitely designed around Race Quads and nothing else!

....or in front of a FPVflying wing (ie...Plank Goblin) that requires no panning..

That could work. Although in a bad crash, the foam will break up around the camera and possible rip the cable out of the camera or board.
At least the Split is protected in a Quads frame.

I think I've broken more cameras than props at this point....

Look at the flying wings for the last 6years, but nothing is indestructible

On the ol' Interweb
Does the WiFi module stay on the controller or just connected when needed? And, is there an extension cable for it in case something on the model is in the way?

Mine says it's been shipped (I paid extra for tracking, still waiting for it to track). I looked and they are now offering the option for a better lens with the cam for $3 more. I ordered another with that lens and will compare the two to see if I can tell a difference. If I can, I'll have to order another lens.

Just starting to check out mine. Two things so far...
1. It only saves to the phones internal memory. It really needs the option to save to the SD card (my phone has 1.5G free while my SD card has around 94G free).
2. Maybe it's different elsewhere, but for me to start the bluetooth here, I have to go through a lot different sequence than simply pressing the button to turn bluetooth on. Heck, I have to turn the cam on, make sure it's not recording (solid blue), turn the camera off and very quickly press the bluetooth button then the On button. If I don't time it just right, I have to do it all over again.

I'm getting better at it but... the instructions say to simply press the bluetooth button. If it's off, pressing the bluetooth button does nothing. If it's on, well... the bluetooth button does other things (and that doesn't include turning the bluetooth on!). Once again... I have to turn the cam on, make sure it's not recording (solid blue), turn the camera off and very quickly press the bluetooth button then the On button. Of course, I could simply be missing something here (won't be the first time!)...

I pre-ordered RunCam split from getFPV and bangGood. I just got the getFPV one yesterday. It is awesome.

By default it starts recording when powered up. It does not record when powered via USB.
On the RunCam3 with auto-record turned on it would record while charging which could fill up your SD card and overheat.

When power is lost it closes the file and only loses the last like 1.5 seconds of video.

With the auto-record and auto-stop defaults, I don't ever need to use the buttons.

The SD card locks in and can't open while in the stack. I don't mind this, I use usb to offload files.

If the SD card fills up it will put a message on the fpv view which could obstruct your view. I think this is fine. It doesn't completely block the view and a 32gb card would take over 100 minutes of video to fill.

The camera comes with 6 or 8 m3 hex head screws. So I can use the same m3 allen wrench on everything on my quad now. Every other camera seems to use phillips screw head.

There is an adapter to make the skinnier camera the same thickness as an 1177. It mounts great on a realacc 214 frame. No motors in the fpv view. They do show up in the HD view. I am trying to extend forward or raise the camera. Higher angle than 40 degrees might work. I don't want to fly that high of angle though. I like to land sometimes.

I had to mount the switch on the bottom of my stack and hgltech v5 f4 pro AIO on top of it because the aio has a big antenna connector on top. I had to make sure the usb is on the correct side so that the battery connector would not block it (coming down from above on the AIO). I used long plastic screws coming from the bottom to the top. So bottom to top is: plastic screw head, 4mm frame, 1 plastic nut, runcam split, 3 plastic nuts, AIO, 1 plastic nut.

I haven't actually flown with it yet but the FPV feed looks great so far. HD view looks great like RunCam3. I ordered a third switch already direct from runcam. I tend to over order awesome products. I have 4 of the AIO and 4 of the realacc frames.
