GoPro Session is becoming a popular HD camera to use on mini quads due to its compact size, but it’s expensive! Here I have the new Runcam 3 which is designed for FPV and supposed to be much cheaper yet maintains the same form factor.
GoPro Cameras are pretty tough, but unfortunately not the LCD screen, without the screen you can’t see the menu and it makes it very difficult to change settings. You might still be able to use Bluetooth, and change camera settings on your smart phone or the wifi remote.
Got the Layerlens protection for my Gopro Hero 3 Silver from GetFPV. It worked great, survived many bad crashes. But until recently I bought the Gopro Hero 3+ Black, I found the image looks really blurry and I realized it might be time to swap out the layerlens as the plastic peice is scratched really badly.
I am very impressed by how well 60fps recording works in Youtube and Vimeo, a increasingly popular feature that comes with the new GoPro Hero 4 cameras and GoPro Hero 3+ Black edition. You can tell straight away it’s 60fps and not 30fps when watching in HD, it’s a lot smoother. In this post, I will show you how to convert 30fps footage into “real” 60fps. By “real” I mean not only the increase in frame rate number, but you will also notice the improvement in video quality. Read More
GoPro Hero4 was finally released this month. There are already many videos, reviews and discussions going on about this new camera.

GoPro Camera Protective Lens Cover For Quadcopter FPV
GoPro is probably one of the most popular cameras used on quadcopters for FPV recording. Actually it does not only apply to just quadcopter, but any other RC aircraft too, fixed wings, multicopters. For the best protection from water, mud, and scratches, the GoPro camera is often put inside of the protective case, and install the case directly on the frame.
