CaddxFPV Ratel Pro: Analog FPV isn’t dead (yet)?

Although one of the best manufacturers of analog FPV cameras for a long time, CaddxFPV has joined DJI’s digital HD FPV platform, then quickly made another change and focused exclusively on the Walsknail Avatar HD FPV transmission system. Honestly, I was surprised when I read about the release of the Rate Pro camera for the analog FPV systems that have had a significant decline in the last period.

The CaddxFPV Ratel Pro camera features a large 1/1.8-inch image sensor that provides 1500TVL resolution. The camera has a 125° field of view (FOV) and supports both 4:3 and 16:9 aspect ratios. Ratel Pro claims to provide superb image quality and outstanding low-light performance (0.00001 lux Min. Illumination).

Intended for bando and freestyling, the CaddxFPV Ratel Pro has a metal case for improved durability. It has a 19x19mm mounting pattern and a weight of 9.2 grams. Thanks to the wide power input, it can be powered from 4.5 to 27V (2-6S batteries).
