I was very surprise to see the final weight of this setup to be 182 grams. That is the same weight as my MRM Micro Scythe 130mm. I assumed the 160mm Reaper would weigh more because of the RunCam Split camera, larger frame and motors.

I always wanted to record HD videos with my smaller 3 inch frames but it wasn't worth the added weight. Sure, I can add a GoPro Session but the performance and flight times will suffer. As you can see with this build I'm able to record HD videos with the new Runcam Split and yet it still only weighs 182 grams. It's not the lightest setup but I am happy with the outcome.

The one major drawback with this camera is the props being in view while recording in HD because the camera is mounted so s low.

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..

When the FatShark HDOs hit the market in 2018 the FPV community rejoiced for the new Sony OLED displays. While they lacked further upgrades like an updated DVR and power button they were still a market success. With the 2019 announcement of the Orqa FPV.One the community finally had a potential HDO killer on the horizon. With only weeks before the release of the Orqa FPV.One Skyzone came out of left..
