Holybro 180 Pro with Runcam Split


Like my Hubsans (which I felt needed a downward facing cam), I just thought a cam that recorded in 1080P would be pretty nice on my racing quad. I had a Runcam Swift 2 on it already, making it pretty darn easy to change over to this one since the connector is the same (and obviously, was already there.) So, I designed an insert to go between the quad and the battery to hold the PCB from the Runcam Split and printed it on my 3D printer. It fits between the battery connector at the rear, screws toward the rear of the quad and has enough room to not hit the FPV antenna. I glued it down with some Gorilla Glue since that stuff hold tight but you can still pry whatever loose (from carbon fiber anyway) if/when you feel the need.

It's funny that I've heard people saying that the Runcam Split has too much lag. Not mine, I zip through and around the trees with no problem at all. Also, some people have complained that it doesn't fill their 16/9 frame well enough. It works just fine on my Dom V3, my Aomway 7" monitor, and my Boscam 5802 monitor. Go figure, eh?

What the quad looks like with the Runcam Split and the 3D printed adapter

It added 51g more than the original camera. Maneuverability is the same. Worse case (recording), I lost 20 seconds of flight time. On the other hand, the Nano-tech 1500 batteries that I settled on (after trying a lot of other batteries) still give me 6-1/2 minutes of good flying. Heck, I tried 5 different batteries when I first got the quad from 1400 to 1800, and none of them gave me anything even remotely close...
