Turbowing CYCLOPS 3: DVR Camera for FPV

Turbowing CYCLOPS 3 camera with DVR

Recording the journey of your FPV flights without a DVR camera like this Turbowing CYCLOPS 3 can be pain in the ass. Firstly, I used an external mini DVR which I connected to the output of my FPV display. Quality was nice but complicated to wire everything together. Later I purchased another monitor with built-in DVR, wiring problem solved but video quality was poor….

Usually, combo cameras are too heavy to be mounted on smaller racing drones (like Tiny Whoop). Luckily, the Turbowing CYCLOPS 3 DVR weighting only 4.5g is a game changer. Dimension of the camera is also very small (18 * 18 * 8 mm).

Turbowing CYCLOPS 3 DVR camera features

On back of the camera is located the micro SD slot. According to the specs you can use up to 32GB memory cards. Thanks to the built-in microphone you can record the videos with sound.

In order to allow simple operation, this AIO DVR camera has only one control button, which start/stop video recording.

Unfortunately, unlike the Eachine DVR03, the CYCLOPS 3 DVR camera does not have a built-in 5.8G VTX (real-time image transmission module)
