Imago H8 1080p FPV camera with dual microSD card slot

According to Wikipedia, the imago is the last stage an insect attains during its metamorphosis. In FPV flight, the Imago is just a camera: RCTimer is selling the Imago H8, a 1080p capable action camera designed for FPV flight. It features dual microSD slots, taking 2 x 32GB max, maximum framerate is 30 fps at 1080p or 60 fps at 720p.

There’s a 800mAh LiPo battery inside for up to 2 hours of recording time, and a little integrated LCD screen allows you to preview and review your recordings at the airfield. Total weight is just under 70 grams, which is a little lighter than the GoPro 3 black which weighs 76 grams. The Imago H8 supports analog video output via its mini USB port, just like the GoPro 3. It should be noted that the GoPro3+ dropped this feature. There’s plenty of buttons on this device and it looks like it might actually be easier to use than a GoPro, and having that screen on there is a big plus as well.

Sale price is USD $135.- over at RCTimer. Whether this is a good alternative to the ubiquitous GoPro, or the Imago H8 just metamorphed out of a 808 keycam remains to be seen.

Stick around after the break for more photos and specs.
