Here's a first look at the new Runcam HD V2 action camera designed specifically for FPV and RC model use.

The good:
- very quiet on the UHF band
- removable battery
- can be configured and settings changed without a computer
- 1440p at 30fps and 1080p at 60fps
- digital image stabilization
- image flip
- surprisingly low latency on the live video feed
- Wifi capable (when the app arrives)
- will run on 2S to 4S external power
- microphone response tailored for flight video requirements
- plenty of accessories
- microSD card wont' pop out in a crash due to its location in battery compartment.

The not-so-good
- motherboard/daughterboard construction may be less crash-resistant
- case color is a bit dull so may be hard to find if lost in the grass.
- battery cover needs to be removed to access microSD card

Stay tuned for the flight footage (including high-speed low-level flying which will really test the quality of video compression).

And watch for the Runcam HD2 versus Foxeer Legend 1 shootout.
