Drone Pilot Video Feed vs. GoPro Footage

What do drone pilots see while they are racing? It’s a low latency analog video signal. Typically the displays in our goggles are also low resolution and the pilot cameras only have 600 vertical lines of resolution. That’s far less than your 1080 or 4k TV at home! This video compares the HD GoPro footage to the feed that we see while flying. The GoPro is only used to make videos after we’re done with a flight.

This was also the maiden for the ShenDrones Pod Prototype. I decided to try the Kiss FC and Kiss 24A ESCs in this build. Although it was easy to setup and flew well, I prefer Multishot and 4khz mode on Betaflight. The Kiss FC with oneshot42 had more latency between my stick command and the motor’s response. However, if I were to compare the Kiss setup to my old Betaflight rigs with OneShot125, I would definitely go for Kiss. I’ll play more with the Kiss FC to tune rates, but that latency will never go away unless multishot is ported to the Kiss FC…pretty please Felix?
