2 cameras ?
Hi
Why do you guys install 2 cameras on your quad ? For what I understood 1 is to pilot and the other is to record. But why not just one hd to get the best image on the ground and on the SD card at the same time ?
Thanks

because most HD cameras (GoPro) have some latency on the video out signal. I think the GoPro is about 67ms if my memory serves me. This is not a problem with a slow, stable airframe, but if you like to fly fast, low to the ground, or do aerobatics this can get akward and could even cause a pilot induced oscillation. Also, many HD cams are also known to not perform as well in dark conditions and have a slower transition from light to dark, so you are likely to get a better perspective despite the lower resolotion with a board cam. Found this video showing the latency.

Watch at YouTube
