Warning: Current Input ≥1A (Don’t powered by VTx)

Flight Controller Set


  • Firmware: BetaFlight Firmware (≥3.2.0), CleanFlight Firmware(≥2.1.0), KISS Firmware (≥1.3-RC30) or INAV Firmware (≥1.7.3).
  • Any available UART interface on the Flight Controller.
  1. Connect the Split 3 series with the UART interface of the Flight Controller
  2. Make the Flight Controller recognize the Split 3 series
    For example, we connect the Split 3 series to the UART 3 interface on the Flight Controller: connect the Flight Controller to the computer, then open the configurator software of the Flight Controller. (Open up the configurator that matches the firmware you are running, Betaflight Configurator for Betaflight, Cleanflight Configurator for Cleanflight). In the Peripherals column of the line UART3 (on the Ports tab), select RunCam Device and click Save And Reboot.
  3. Instructions of the functions of the camera and assigning transmitter channels to them

In the Flight Controller Configurator, navigate to the Modes tab. There are new CAMERA WI-FI, CAMERA POWER and CAMERA CHANGE modes

    • CAMERA POWER: start/stop the video. When in the OSD of the camera, this is used to move to the next menu item.
    • CAMERA CHANGE MODE: switch among the two modes: video and OSD setting mode. When in the OSD of the camera, this will exit the menu

Assign any available channel to the function you need, for example:

    • Assign the AUX2 to the CAMERA POWER, range 1900-2100
    • Assign the AUX3 to the CAMERA CHANGE MODE, range 1900-2100

  1. Assign the channel to the switch of the controller
    Please choose your Model on the controller, then access to the MIXER interface and assign the channel to the switch of the controller. Take opentx 2.2.0 for example, assign the channels CH5, CH6 and CH7 to SA, SB and SD respectively

  2. Test
    Power the Flight Controller and the Split 3 series
    • Set the SA to the bottom, the camera starts/stops the video
    • Set the SD to the bottom, the camera switches among the two modes: video and OSD setting mode
