Review: Runcam Split 3 Nano whoop

After the Caddx Baby Turtle whoop edition, I reviewed the equivalent: the Runcam Split 3 Nano.

Like Caddx, they have differents mount options: 20×20 or 25×25 for whoop frame, so basically perfect for all tinywhoop or toothpick because you can add the board on the top of the aio FC.

So how is this HD camera ? Let’s see !

I recorded a flight during the night to show you how it could render (I will uplodad a new one outside) on a race led track, prety nice no ?

Specifications

So basically you will be able to record 1080@60FPS directly on a sdcard inserted in the board.

Moreover you can control the camera in Betaflight, see the manual.

  • Stronger flexible ribbon cable
  • Optimize TV-OUT interference to reduce ripple

  • Standard mounting bracket, easy to install

Quality

I noticed some differences with the caddx like:

  • Not so blurry like the caddx one (so good point for Runcam here)
  • MOV video format output instead of MP4
  • A small plastic piece to avoid the ejection of the sdcard during a crash (really a good benefits !!)
  • Control the camera via Betaflight !
  • the weight is exactly the same compared to the caddx, so no difference here

I did a build with this HD camera in the tomoquads chospstick CS3 V1.1 frame:

As you could see with these HD camera, you must be careful that your frame or canopy could protect them because the lenght are pretty long with the camera.

If I should choose between this one and the caddx equivalent, I will go with this one probably, for all points I mentionned but specically to avoid this kind of blurry fpv feed that you have with the Caddx.
