Insta360 today announced an exciting new FPV camera mode for the Insta360 GO iOS and Android apps. With the latest version of the app, you can now record up to five minutes of video continuously when GO is mounted on a FPV drone.
The new 5-minute recording feature makes Insta360 GO the perfect FPV camera for drone pilots. With its small 20-gram frame, you can mount GO on even the smallest of FPV drones.
Fly into never-before-accessible spots
With Insta360 GO, you can capture high-quality, stabilized footage from your FPV drone, while still being able to access incredibly tight locations. Check out some of these shots captured with Insta360 GO that would be impossible with a larger drone or camera:
Most action camera stabilization algorithms are optimized for running, biking, skiing and other action sports. Insta360 GO is the first camera ever with a stabilization algorithm optimized specifically for FPV flights.
GO’s FPV stabilization mode will keep your shots steady, no matter how fast you dip, dive and roll your drone. And you don’t have to sacrifice quality for size with this FPV camera—Insta360 GO records 1080p videos.
Man, you can’t find that camera quality on anything close to 20 grams. And having built in FlowState Stabilization was just the icing on the cake!Jason Smalling, 360 Rumors
The FPV community is filled with incredible engineers and DIY demons. That’s why we’ve made it easy to 3D print your own FPV camera mount for GO with a downloadable 3D image file of GO on our official website (under Product Support—GO—Other).
The 5-minute shooting mode is specifically optimized for FPV drone-mounted shooting and leverages the drone’s propellers to provide GO with additional cooling power. Be aware that the mode is not designed for everyday use when GO is not paired with an FPV drone.
Update your app now to use FPV mode
For existing Insta360 GO users, simply update your app to start using the FPV mode. No firmware update is needed.
With iOS v1.4.1 and Android v1.3.2, you can now turn on FPV mode and control shooting over Bluetooth with your phone. Just open the Insta360 GO app and connect your GO to get started. Under “Recording length”, you can select “5 min (FPV mode)”.
You can also turn on FPV mode in the GO button settings. Navigate to Settings—GO button settings—Press—Recording length and select “5 min (FPV mode)”. After you’ve successfully saved this button setting, disconnect GO from your phone. Once you’ve mounted GO to your FPV drone, turn GO on and then press GO once to start recording.
Then start flying and capture some epic FPV footage! When you’re ready to edit, you can turn FPV stabilization on or off under “FlowState Stabilization” in the app’s editing interface.
