I suppose the RC5 Orange may output TV-out through its microusb port, if properly set.

However I doubt it can be remote controlled to start/stop video or take pictures (I'm unaware it's capable of recording still images). I recall it is RC2-4k the one that has such features.

I'm curious to read this reddit post about the video/still adapter, there might be useful info there!

I've got an RC5 and 128GB SDXC coming.  This one will mainly be used with quads.  I will make a TV-out/power cable from a spare micro USB cable.

Any ideas about remote control cables (or adapters) that they don't seem to make any more?  I've seen a reddit post linking to instructions to make a video/still adapter with start-video/take-picture.  I wonder if something could be done with the BetaFlight code that talks to the cable to do full menu traversal plus camera mode / start.

RC5 USD $117.69 including tax and shipping

It could still be a bad setting.  I still recommend you try the above.

After that you might try Rescue with "Upgrade and Erase"

I don't know if they ever got around to fixing the downloads page, but Thank you @TheOtherCliff for posting that link. I even tried directly typing the bit.ly address in and nothing was happening.

once the yellow light goes off it goes off forever and won't get on again

Thanks!  I just read that the image stabilization can cause a jerkiness in yaw and there was a recommendation to turn it off.

Definitely, EIS should be turned off for flight footage!


It looks like RC5 has image stabilization but RC2-4K has WiFi (on/off and a useful app), microphone, "sudden power loss video save" and selectable FOV that RC5 doesn't have.  At least that is what the two Amazon listings say.  That makes it sound like the RC2-4K is the better one for me.

RC5 Orange has better sensor and optics and offers very good lens distortion correction that gives better results compared to applying a lens distortion correction in post-processing.

RC5 has a mic, too.

WiFi is useful but I find the RC5 Orange configuration method (2D barcodes) more convenient and fast.

Sudden power loss is unlikely to happen with RC5 Orange as it has an inbuilt battery. RC2-4k can be used without battery (for weight saving) on external power, so a "sudden power loss" here is much more likely to happen. Haven't tested this feature of RC2-4k as I use it with both a battery and external power.

RC2-4k has a quite decent SD video out that can be used for FPV. I'm not sure if RC5 Orange has it?!


I personally prefer using RC2-4k on a plane and feel RC5 Orange is better suited for a quad.

Are there any FPV HD recording cameras that can do low light?

No idea. Haven't seen anything that seems satisfactory yet...

The development of software products for businesses is a complex process that requires skilled professionals with the right amount of experience, knowledge, and skill to deliver custom software that meets the needs of the organization. A dedicated software company is able to handle the entire software development process from conception to initial testing and integration. A web software development service https://mlsdev.com/services/custom-software-development can deliver cutting-edge software products that will improve the performance of the business and allow it to stay ahead of the competition. When it comes to custom software development, there are five critical stages that software companies must pass in order to provide quality software solutions to organizations.

I have a pitch/roll gimbal on the MiniTalon and it makes a great job. But most of my videos come from quadcopter flights, no gimbal there.

Aside from making my best to fly as smooth as possible, I do software post-processing with proDAD Mercalli.

AFAIK only this Runcam camera (Runcam5 Orange) has EIS. But I find this inbuilt video stabilization to be inefficient and even harmful.

There is a new and somehow exciting functionality introduced in the latest Runcam5 Orange firmwares: ‚Äčan automatic generation of .csv file with gyroscope data that is saved to the MicroSD card. This allows for direct post-processing stabilization with the gyroflow https://elvinchen.com/gyroflow/  (similar to ReelSteadyGO for GoPro cameras).

This project is still under development and looks quite promissing. However, at its present state (gyroflow 0.3.0-beta), the results I've got trying to stabilize video footage from my flights with gyroflow are definitely inferior compared to proDAD Mercalli. On the other side, Mercalli v5 costs almost $300 now, against $0 for gyroflow 0.3.0 ...

@JDL:  Your videos are so smooth.  I don't see a gimbal.  Is that the RunCam image stabilization doing that?  Post-processing?

Is image stabilization available in all the RunCam recording cameras (2, 2-4K, 3, Split, 5, etc.)?

Thanks!
