The Best FPV Drone Camera – GoPro Hero Session for $140

You read that right, $140 for a GoPro Hero 4 Session.

I searched high and low for the best HD camera for my Eachine Wizard X220 so I could escape the horrors of making videos from my Eachine EV800 DVR.  I thought about the Xiaomi Yi as you can get one for about $120 but the side by side comparisons just proved to me the GoPro is where its at.

I didn’t want to drop a ton of change to get the GoPro Hero 5 Session or the Hero 4 Silver for around $300, especially while I’m still learning and prone to crashing.  So I started to search for the best option for the money.

My only must have was 1080 resolution with 60fps to maximize the video quality and speed for YouTube videos and personal enjoyment.

The Hunt Begins

After many hours of reading, researching, comparing and learning…. it all boiled down to the right option being the GoPro Hero 4 Session.

Research Findings:

  • Best Picture Quality for the Price
  • 1080p 60fps
  • Narrow/Light/Compact/Sleek Fits within frame edges unlike hero 4 and 5 silver/black
  • Best Price/Features for dollar spent
  • Cheaper options didn’t have the quality (Xiaomi Yi and other chinese knock offs)

Best/Cheapest Place to Buy It:

My researching brought me to an ebay listing for a $140 GoPro Hero 4 Session and this is the winner.  It is factory refurbished which doesn’t concern me in the slightest.

It comes with everything the retail version does minus the fancy packaging.  No problemo…

The package includes the following:

· HERO Session Camera
· Standard Frame
· Curved Adhesive Mount
· Flat Adhesive Mount
· Mounting Buckle + Hardware
· Micro-USB Cable

I have been using my Session now for a couple of days and am really excited to stop using the factory mount (which works well) because its a big heavy and tall.

I already purchased a nice 3d printed mount to go with it.  There aren’t a ton of these things available everywhere but this one on Amazon looks like it will work well.
