Unveiled earlier this year, the new version 3 of the FlyCamOne video/still camera system has just been released. V3 seems to complement rather than replace V2 and is firmly aimed at the potential First Person View (FPV) market.
It’s a modular system with a clip-on screen and an optional 2.4GHz base station. FPV type glasses are to be released in due course meaning the system should offer an affordable entry into FPV flying, an area of the hobby that’s attracting growing interest.
Available through J.Perkins stockists, the basic camera is £99.99 and includes the clip-on screen. Again, the camera records to an SD card and power is from a built-in 500mAh Li-Po battery. Video is VGA quality while ‘still’ photos record at 1280 x 1024 pix (1.3MP). The J.Perkins website has more information and look out for a full review in RCM&E in due course.
