Runcam 5 HD - At last a replacement for Gopro Session(?)

This pooped up unexpectedly, The Runcam 5 HD.

Our hobby suffered when Gopro discontinued the session, thats when i got extra two as spares.
My real wish is that there will be a Session 7 with hyper smooth but for now we get the Runcam 5...

The runcam 5 HD gopro Session shaped and with the same dimensions.

Oscar Liang mentioned it first on his site here:

The test video showes this to be the first non gopro camera which is not over sharpened and the output (in my eyes) look the closest ever to a gopro!
Runcam 5 First Flight (3 min 28 sec)

The specs are little below the Session 5:

Video Resolutions:
[email protected]
[email protected]
[email protected]
[email protected]
[email protected]
Field of View (FOV) 145
Video File Format MOV
Supports microSD Card Up to 128GB
Battery Capacity 950mAh
Dimension 38*38*36mm
Weight: 55.5g

The 1440p can be post edited to 1080p superview like, that is if it is not supported natively.
Session 5 supports [email protected] superview and even [email protected] superview which won't be in the Runcam 5 HD.

But the confirmed 99.99$ price is unbeatable! (especially if the 1st video from Oscar represent the quality!)

More updates as they come.....

It's too bad the battery isn't removable. Being able to save weight by replacing the battery with a super capacitor and feeding the main power from the quad itself would be worth switching from a Session. Less weight and never running out of battery mid day would be awesome.

Does anyone know if these are reasonably easy to open up, or is everything glued together like the session? If it can be opened with just screws to get at the battery, that might be good enough.

Where to get replaceable battery in the future?
Can remove the batt and power it by microusb/mini usb cables?
Does the lens use m12 threads?
