After breaking many cameras on my 3" builds I finally decided to go for something a bit more durable so the Japalura seemed like a good choice with the hybrid aluminum and carbon fiber cage.

In order to deal with vibration to the FC I had to use 2 m3 rubber o-rings above and below the frame on each of the 4 posts, and another single set between the FC and the RunCam Split. After that I was able to get it tuned butter smooth with dRonin's Autotune feature.

In late 2019 DJI made inroads into the FPV scene with their remarkable low-latency digital system. It gave us a 720p video feed with latency on-par with the status quo, analog video. Traditionally we've used analog video systems for low-latency video, but the video quality is far from ideal. It's a trade-off we've been willing to accept for the control. Now we've got the best of both worlds and what..
