Classic Caddx Turtle V2 🐢 Cinematic Style - Ride of the Valkyries


🔊🔊🔊 Full Volume Recommended 🔊🔊🔊
Upscaled to 2.7K @ 60FPS for best picture

Classic Caddx Turtle V2 🐢 Cinematic Style - Ride of the Valkyries (4 min 10 sec)


I never imagined that classical music would suit my flying style but it's perfect for those cinematic drone shots !! Atypical weather for England in February; last year it was snowing at this time !

Music- Wagner incl. Ride of the Valkyries

Adobe Premier Pro for Caddx V2 post-production

I still think this footage is better than the output of the Runcam Split Mini 2 . It's not quite as good as as a Go Pro but at least as good as the Foxeer Mix; what fpv hd camara do you think is best?

How to update Caddx Turtle firmware (step-by-step):
UPDATING CADDX TURTLET (5 min 44 sec)


The latest firmware now is January 2019. Image quality and settings are unchanged and Caddx have adopted their UART protocol to one of the protocol versions that Runcam has. If so - you should connect the RX and TX pads on your Turtle V2 to unused UART Tx and RX pads on your FC. Then configure accordingly in the Ports tab in BF. However some users have reported bug so if you do not need to control when the camera record I would advise avoiding this release of the firmware. Stick to the September 7th release for now.

The main issues are related to how the Turtle is installed:
- Good clean power supply and avoidance of ground loops
- Some air needs to pass the board to avoid over heating.
