Caddx Ratel NIght Flight 🐼 Modified vs Stock FPV Footage - Caddx Tarsier not required

Amazing SD Raw Footage 😲😲 (Apologies for the swearing)
Test of light handling, colour range and bitrate with the Caddx after sunset.

Caddx Ratel 🐼 Modified vs Stock FPV Footage - Caddx Tarsier not required, cheap Topsky DVR is!! (2 min 33 sec)

I think the Caddx Ratel coupled with a Turtle (if you already have one) may beat buying a new Tarsier. No HD footage for a change but the image captured from the goggles is good enough in low light.

This was my first day flying with the Ratel Starlight camera and I got stuck in a tree with my first lipo. After 5 hours I managed to get it back with some rope and a stick but I just about found the energy to fly a couple of lipos after sunset and before total darkness. Great to have a dedicated FPV Camera especially as I've been flying a lot with the Caddx Turtle lately. it makes such a difference to be able to see in low light and have no latency issues!

Personally , I feel the stock footage is great for visibility in the shadows and makes the early evening feel like daytime; great for Golden Hour flights. Amazingly the footage from my old TopSky Prime 1S Goggles is really good and better than the image produced by my trusty VRD2-Pro Goggles (Topsky sent me a new board to rectify the receiver issue).
