By popular demand I've made additional versions of this housing with the following camera angles.
45' 35' 30' 25'
The RunCam Split 2 sounds like an amazing piece of kit on paper.....
- FPV and HD Camera all in one
- Wide dynamic range camera
- Records at 1080 60fps
- No need for a GoPro
What's not to like??
Latency, That's what.
The latency was bad enough for me that I was unable to fly comfortably with it. I know that there's people out there who say that the latency doesn't bother them, but they're not me.
But aside form the latency it's still a pretty good HD camera so I figured why not use it as one. I found Daubut's top mount design for the Split and decided to try it out. I think it's a great design, but there were a couple of things that I wanted to see so I decided to make my own version of the model.
This design fits on top of the Martian II frame, has a 45° incline and the lens of the RunCam is recessed to provide a bit more protection. It also features a hollow bottom that allows for easier placement of the camera.
This model is designed to be printed in TPU or similar semi-flexible filament so the fit is very tight. I don't know weather or not using ABS, PETG, PLA or any other type of filament will work with this model. Conciser yourselves warned.
I printed mine with 100% infill and 0.20mm layer height with supports enabled.
