RunCam Split 2 – improved Split

RunCam released new version of their HD camera – RunCam Split 2. Lets look what has been changed:

  • changed camera/board ribbon cable connector – now it is stronger and not so easy to accidently disconnect
  • top heatsink plate for better cooling
  • fixed reverse current issue (it was not possigle to use USB while quad lipo is connected)
  • redesigned SD card slot – more reliable and easier to access
  • 5V- 17V input voltage with onboard voltage regulator, that takes up to 4S lipo Battery  (V1 could be supplied only by 5V)
  • changed Wi-Fi module connector – now it can be connected horizontally (V1 was almost imposssible to connect once board is seated in the frame)
  • comes with better lens (RC25G)
  • solder pads for video out and FC connection instead of plugs on V1
  • updated microphone

So it has quite a number of changes. Another good news – the older RunCam Split version is now sold for less than $55. So if these changes were not a showstopper for you, then you can buy cheaper RunCam Split V1.
