Quad Erat Demonstrandum
scousethief's Avatar
Dont worry, i think Hawkeye are still finalising the best firmware, i have had a few chats with them via Face book regarding very minor issues ( none that hamper performance ) which is one of the reasons i havent uploaded sample video ( Ive been ill in bed fighting death and i will be accused of "faking" the video due to the corrupted exif data )

Ill test mine once it gets a new firmware, the lag on mine is a little too much to race with. It would be perfectly fine on a plane or on a cheap AP quad as an extra camera but atm i wouldnt use this as a main flying camera

I started the test on a quad.
- using 4k the FPV feed is unflyable. I notice lag and it's not good. Using 1080p60 I can fly. But I want to do more test and there are a lot of combinations to use: WDR, EIS and so on
- after some flight I decided to do some ground footage to compare video quality. After some changes (I don't remember now but I hav the dvr from my goggles) the video disappeared and the cam doesn't power up. If I press the power button I see the blu led flashing once, a beep and after shut down.
Now I'm looking for a way to reset.

Solved: after flashing again the last firmware the cam is working.
My last operation before the issue was choosing "Auto Power OFF". After this I was not able to power on the cam...

It has appened again: I changed to 1080p120 and when I get out from the menu the board powered off.
So my previous fault wasn't the auto power off but I only see the last action on the menu before leaving it.
No my board power off after powering on and I have to flash it again to restore!

My first video is resdy
Hawkeye Firefly Split 4K - Recensione - Menu - Test di volo (22 min 29 sec)


I didn't added 4k footage in this video. I will post some other video later.

My first considerations:
- first impression of 4k fpv feed is bad for a lot of latency. I will try more combination in the next video (WDR on/off, EIS on/off, and so on)
- with 1080 or 720 the FPV feed is OK. And video footage is very good
- a lot of configurations are available
- the dimension (30mm mount for the board and not micro cam) is a limit: I cannot use on my last build (geprc-cx3 a 3 inch frame)
- the only way to change configuration is with the micro board. It's OK in the real life when you need only to click on record and stop. But when you need to experiment the lack of WiFi is a CONS.
- Finally the shutdown issue. As I wrote in my previous post, during the configuration my board is powered off and I cannot power on (only one beep with led and after power off again). The first time I thought I choose a wrong configuration. The second time I was only changing the resolution and after exiting the menu I noticed the issue again.
To reset the board I must flash firmware again. I like to understand if my board is fault or there is a bug. I will try an older firmware...

I bought one, it has a problem:
When powered down the last file is corrupt beyond repair.
The description of the firefly 4k is that it auto repairs the last files upon repowering up the board with the SD card in.

After flashing again the power-off issue is disappeared and I made more test in different resolutions.
Flying slow in "cinematic way" also the 4K resolution is flyable.
Now I have to trasplant from the test quad to one of my Cinewhoop.

Here are the raw videos.
