With all the recent brushless tinywhoop and toothpick it was pretty hard to get good quality image. Well you have all the HD camera like the caddx turttle but you are adding a lot of weight to the drone and it was not super interesting.
The other choice was to add a DVR recorder in your drone like the Runcam DVR.
But HappyModel announced a VTX with built-in DVR !!
That’s really a good improvement and not really an extra cost for the quad. Few things that you could be interested:
- AVI output 1280×720
- 25/200 mW
- 3 grams for the VTX/DVR
- It seems that the video will be split each 2 minutes
- Start/Stop button
- Auto-start the DVR at power up
- In case of power off, the DVR will not be saved 🙁
