Editor's Notes

April 12, 2019:

FPV camera technology has improved by leaps and bounds even in just the past few years. Today, you can become completely immersed in a remote piloting adventure with the right equipment.

The FPV camera is an important part of that equation because it helps you navigate your remote-controlled vehicle as if you were inside it. Without one, you'll be maneuvering your unmanned quadcopter from a distance, and that's no fun.

Depending on how you use your rig, there's a few key specs you'll want to pay attention to.

First is latency. This is basically a measure of how fast a camera gets its signal to a display. This is a crucial factor especially for those who compete in high-speed racing. In that arena, any delays in signal can mean the difference between flying under or into an obstacle. Both the RunCam Racer 2 and Foxeer Predator Micro V3 are excellent choices for those who need to make every millisecond count.

The other thing to look for is the field of view of a camera's lens. In other words, how much of the world the camera captures in a picture. The human eye, for example has a field of view of 114 degrees. The Caddx Turbo Micro SDR2 and Caddx Turtle V2 both have fields of view over 150-degrees. But a word of caution: As you begin to get into the wider fields of view, you also run the risk of barrel distortion.

His past career landed him a depth of knowledge in tools and hardware, while his current career schooled him in audio, video and camera equipment. During his leisure time, he’s learned lots about outdoor gear, and years of tiresome backyard maintenance have taught him all about pools and hot tubs. His recreational pursuits include rest, relaxation and revolutionary action, and his roommate’s a hairless cat.
