yeah latency is often overstated as a problem. but the pilot can usually adjust to the latency with practice.

HD latency as my Fixed-Wings are not fast enough to know.....for me

ProSightHD is really not a great choice for high performance long duration planes bc to be safe you have to put another analog fpv OSD/RTH system just to be safe. You cant attach that to tne ProSightHD (atleast via OSD on your monitor). There are Cheaper RTH systems out there (ie...bigaOle), but your adding more items into the plane....latency becomes 2ndary. It just becomes MORE work

I just use this HD system for close range virtual cockpit usage...im also trying to use on my Traxxas SUMMIT,
...and having no Audio is a negative for me.

I have to agree. I love my Prosight system ( slow 2M Opterra wing), but no audio or OSD system with RTH is a bummer. Otherwise the video is awesome.

Hey,

I am looking into a below 2kg mapping drone.
Belly cam will be most likely be a Hero 6.

Do you think that the Mini Drak can handle this?

Alternative Airframes I consider are:

Parrot Disco
Mini Skyhunter
Mini Talon (likely with wing extensions)

Do you have an idea which one might handle the extra weight of Hero 6 and Fpv system best?
I need a stable flight & maximum flighttime.

Flight controller will be a Pixhawk.

Thanks so much for any thoughts on this.

Mum is the word!
Yes it can, the area at CG was cleared for this type of use.
