    Boy are you in luck. I actually have both of those exact same cables. I got impatient waiting for Atlanta Hobby's so I ordered the one from ReadyMadeRC. Turns out, they both showed up the same day. :)

    ANYWAY...

    The two differences are:
    RMRC cable:
    (1) Charges the GoPro battery. This means the GoPro will drain your LiPo and therefore your flight time. Not desirable since the GP3 battery should outlast a whole day's worth of recording multiple flights and multiple LiPo's.
    (2) Exposed cable

    AH cable:
    (1) Does not charge the GoPro battery which means more flight time.
    (2) Has a nice white sheath around the cabling, making it a little nicer to look at and a bit more protected than an exposed cable.

    I hope this information serves you well.

    I only get about 4 flights on a gopro battery and it's getting close to flat. Thats 4 x 6-7 minute flights. I do run the fatshark cable from gopro to TX to have my goggles display what the gopro sees. The cable I have does not charge the Gopro. I do have plenty of gopro batteries though.
