Hi everyone!

I am new on FPV systems and I want to buy a drone camera to use in a university project. However, I couldn't find the qualified drone cameras. I am looking for the quality like new gopro series. Do you have any great camera advices? All ideas are welcome!

Thanks!

G'day mate!

The Bebop2 is a great FPV drone for its price.

It has a 14mp camera. You can record in 1080p (1920x1080) at 30fps.

It's easy to use and quick to set up.

It is easy and quite inexpensive to repair (a really good point as other brands aren't designed to be repaired by the hobbyist).

I guess all this is a moot point though as you are after 4K video by the looks of it.

I also have the GoPro Karma drone and Hero5.

This drone has been discontinued by GoPro though. They do still provide support and make spares for it etc.

The Karma is VERY easy to fly. It carries the GoPro on the front on a gimbel. This gimbel is removable from the drone and you can then mount it on the battery pack that comes with it and use it as a hand stabiliser for the camera.

It also is compatible with the new Hero7.

Lovely bit of kit. (probably shouldnt talk about it here though lol :D )

Hello,

on a FPV system a GoPro is usually not what you want (when talking the live video feed). I recommend the runcam series like the runcam swift or runcam eagle.
