Haven't even though about if it records with USB power?
I'll check. Haven't seen it in the feed though, just in the recordings.

If clean power / a good SD card doesn't fix it, I'd start to wonder if the main board has an issue and needs to go back.

It even happens on the bench, with the motor not running, so it should be clean. Unless the bec on the vtx can generate dirty power by itself?

I've already written to banggood who replyed extremely politely that they are contacting their reseller.

And so begins the usual run-around routine! All designed to stall for time and wear you down until you either buy another one or just give up.

Thanks for posting the links. I'm planning to put together a build in the next month or so and will probably just go ahead and get the pololu you linked to make sure I don't have any video problems. I've had to try to fix a noisy FPV feed before and it's maddening.

I give up!!!

I can’t get rid of the fpv video noise. I first connected it to the fc bec (3a) and was bad, changed vtx, still the same, I then connected to the battery directly, same. I then bought a polou and still the same. Almost unflyable. Managed to get rid of most of the jellow by soft mounting everything at least!
I cannot reccomend this runcam split mini, i hate it, wish I didn’t buy it now, going to bin it and buy the caddex version.
Bad bad Runcam - not happy.

UPDATE:
Didn’t want to throw the towel in so I tried 1 last thing. I stripped out the camera in my x140 and made a few adjustments to accommodate the split mini and hey presto, at last I have no fpv noise!! Just hope it doesn’t start freezing again now it’s connected to a fc......

Certain esc / motor combos have more noise than others.

Anyone tried the 2.0 firmware update for the split mini yet?

Quote:
1. Optimize the recording effect.
2. Optimize the TV-OUT (FPV) effect.
3. Add Saturation and Contrast options.
4. Modify the OSD menu style.
5. Remove the Volume and Date stamp options of the OSD Menu.
Anyone got a review/video that compares it to the old one?

Please tell me they fixed the latency:-) I have the Caddx turtle on another drone and I can't fly my RunCam Split mini drone anymore, too much latency.

I'm not sure about this, but I think I saw something about the SD card speed could affect latency. Or was that the turtle?

IIRC latency is pretty much the same as with the caddx even on the old firmware (I think there are some youtube reviews who checked this)
Just make sure to run 1080p 60 fps NTSC and fullscreen (so non letterboxed fpv view), also make sure the datestamp is disabled.

I have both the caddx and the turtle and notice no real difference in latency but thats subjective.
