The GoPro competitor, RunCam, have just published a new product page, hinting at the launch of a new FPV product designed to replace the RunCam 3 which was recently the target of a GoPro law suit.
The product page unfortunately gives very little away, only to suggest that the product will be FPV focused and is associated with the RunCam 3 product, a visual clone of the popular GoPro Session action camera, which was discontinued earlier this month following a legal dispute between RunCam and GoPro.
“Transformed from RunCam 3, our Latest Innovated HD camera for FPV, RunCam Split is coming soon!”, website quote
The graphic provided on the product listing shows a hand holding an item which is potentially smaller than the RunCam 3 product, but the image does not provide any clues regarding the justification or reasoning for the ‘Split’ product name.
We have a theory that RunCam may be addressing the common need for FPV pilots to fly with two cameras, one a low resolution camera for realtime 5.8ghz video transmission, the second a high resolution camera to capture flight footage such as the RunCam 3 and GoPro range.
By combining both cameras into a single unit, there could be weight savings and it would simplify racing quadcopter construction, this is of course just a theory.
We hope for RunCam to provide more information soon regarding this new product, be sure to check back as this article will be updated.
