Runcam Split 2 - firstlook

Runcam sent me the NEW version of their popular SPLIT cam. They changed some bad things to the better!
- New SD Card mount - yay!
- larger VOLTAGE RANGE (5-17v)
- FC integration!
- Lens
- WIFI stick instead of board with 90° angle it's now a horizontal one
...

I will make a more indepth video for sure - but this will take a few days or weeks. Give me feedback on what you want to be tested!

Electric cars, the chance to drive on a Formula one track and drones? What more can you ask for :)
Sorry that I couldnt spend more time there at the drone races - should have camped there for the whole 2 days...
