It took them approximately a decade to get this board done, but here is another DVR/Vtx option. This one with a 400mw Vtx and slightly improved bitrate. We find that it’s pretty good at both being a Vtx and a DVR and has been far more reliable than some other options. For one thing, we’ve run this board with no antenna installed and it didn’t burn out. We absolutely do NOT recommend testing that for yourself, but we try to punish products to see how or if they fail.
As an added bonus, the microphone on this thing isn’t totally useless. With some post process fancy audio filtering, it’s actually a nice addition.
It also has a mechanism to start and stop recordings from the OSD and your controller. If you want to do that, read up on it but we don’t recommend it because it’s just too complicated in our opinion. There’s a button to start and stop recording. This DVR does NOT save the file until you hit the STOP button. That mechanism seems to be more of an issue to implement.

Works every time . Good product
Very nice and compact means to record flight video on toothpick ! It’s nice that two harness are provided for OSD vs no OSD.
I wish it had 1080p ability, or at least 60fps, but it's still a great little 720p VTX+DVR AIO solution. It does exactly as it says.
Just note, it does NOT come with a SD card protector, so anticipate having to search for your micro SD in the event you slam into something hard like I did.
I used this on a tp3 and on the maiden flight I tumbled from ~10 feet and multiple components just fell off. Very disappointed in build quality.
Works good and records good video. Very happy with its performance.
