Just few weeks after their first Runcam Split Mini competitor, Caddx is already their Turtle FPV-HD cam ultralight combo with a V2: https://www.banggood.com/Caddx-Turtle-V2-1080p-60fps-FOV-145-Degree-Super-WDR-Mini-HD-FPV-Camera-OSD-Mic-for-RC-Drone-p-1360782.html
We still have a 1080@60fps builtin HD recorder coupled with a 800TVL CVBS FPV sensor. It’s still super light (~12g) but they improved some details:
– Now the mounting holes are more standard for 20mmx20mm support
– A mic is added
– A new lens (FPV about 170 degrees)
– New settings improving the general video quality.
With the Runcam split mini 2 recently introduced as well, seems there is a new war for 2-in-1 ultra light FPV-HD cam combo. The main question is about the associated latency. With the original Turtle, the latency was about 50-70ms… so almost twice more than the runcam split mini. I guess probably relatively soon a cheap FPV racer will be introduced with this combo pre-installed. Wait & See.
The Caddx Turtle allows both a live FPV feed and an HD DVR, without the weight of a heavy HD action camera. The Turtle V2 brings many improvements over the original, including a new lens, audio, better mounting options, and a better image. Caddx has introduced a new competitor in the HD FPV camera category. The Caddx Turtle is a 1080p 60fps capable mini fpv camera split into two parts, the FPV camera and an HD DVR board. Users who are constantly deciding whether or not to use an HD action camera may find this option perfect for their needs, especially those interested in shedding the weight of a heavy action camera but still want HD recording.
