shipping at BG most likely is done is bulk. i.e. wait for an outgoing container/truck trailer load to fill completely , before sending out for processing and shipping.
-just another of the many reasons why it can be so cheap.

Firmware Version 1.1 dated 25-Jul-2018


I asked Caddx for the updated firmware. Never heard back from them.

I asked Albert Kim if he coud provide a link to the Jul-25 version of the firmware. But he probably felt obliged to maintain a level of confidentiality while he was testing the firmware.

I managed to get it off a link provided by Gal Kremer. The link is in the description of his review of the Turtle...

Raphi86 do you notice any latency in the FPV when flying?

Had the split2 before. Not comparable. Everything is fine with the turtle. Fpv is very nice. Didnt notice any lag... Flying is normal, as with every other fpv camera. Picture is clear, much contrast and looks great - > not like the washed out runcam picture. The only thing is, that i have to use ntsc, because the pal picture is cropped - > i have Black outer lines and the picture is much smaller. But. Ntsc is okay for me.... Ordered yesterday the second turtle

In addtition to the black borders in PAL mode, I also noticed a stepping in the FPV feed (a hesitation once/twice a second) in PAL mode when viewing in the goggles. But it doesn’t seem obvious in the recorded DVR footage. Doesn’t appear in the recorded HD video either.

All seems fine in NTSC mode.

Thanks for sharing my video :-)
I also uploaded a couple more videos - you can find them in this playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?lis...RJ-mt50K62EsYK
Flight footage and latency tests will be up in the next few days.

Start/stop video recording with BetaFlight Flight Controller


Has anyone done it? I suppose we have to hook up the camera board RX pad to FC TX pad, and the ground pads too, then pick the correct protocol of the respective UART. Do I select "Runcam Device" as the protocol? That's the only camera-related protocol available from the drop-down menu.

Thanks for the info everyone has posted. I’m going to use this on a fpvwra spec wing which is too weight/aerodynamically sensitive for a conventional hd camera. Looks perfect for the job and a step up on the split.

Actually one other question, can you confirm what lens is included?
