Smile FPV Racing Rear View Camera Action

Hi All,
Here is a test of the Runcam HD camera. The Spanky 5 is fitted with two Runcam HD camera's, one facing forwards and another underneath the quad facing backward capturing all the footage that's normally lost.

Flying the Spanky 5 with an extra 50g+ (camera and isolation mount) was interesting in the corners but still managed to perform well overall. The sound is a bit ropey due to unbalanced props and worn bearings in the motors after a long session of racing.

I fitted both Runcam HD cameras with 32Gb TF cards and had them recording well over 18 races each and they both had plenty of battery left for more racing. I enabled WDR on both camera's which was not needed and it gave the raw footage very over saturated colours.

Check out the Runcam HD camera on their website:
The excellent custom Airgates were provided by the brilliant chaps at Hoverspeed RC, check out their website for awesome FPV racing gear:
