Reviews from pilots:
- Well if your not into spending $500 or so on a GoPro Hero Black for your drone or quadcopter, well this is the next best thing and weighs half of what a GoPro does, The picture on it is really really good it’s 1080 so unless your filming in REAL 4K it just doesn’t get any better than this lil dude!! It only weighs 44 grams or so compared to the 80 of a GoPro. It works very well even without a gimbal just a stabilizer pad with the bumper shocks like the Eachine racer has works great! Of course it’s not as smooth as a gimbil would be but for the video I’m shooting it’s not for commercial use it’s really great footage to save after you fly for a FPV of the flight. Love this thing low profile and works great!!!!
- This is an awesome camera with nice 1080P 30FPS setting. I think you can’t beat it for the price.
- I bought this camera as a second video camera for my quads, and right out of the box I was dazzled with it’s overall video quality. I’m a professional videographer/photographer and I plan on adding additional Runcams to my inventory of equipment because they are just that good.
- This little camera has just about any feature in a small package one wants for FPV. Picture quality is excellent, it does record your flight on a SD card. Make sure that the camera is mounted where there is a good ventilation, since its heat sink gets warm quickly, particularly on a long flights ( 20 – 30 minutes) 5 stars

|RunCam 2 RunCam2 HD 1080P 120 Degree Wide Angle WiFi FPV Camera
- This is a quality camera for a good price. Less fisheye and better distance focus than the Gopro.
- Tiny camera, but good video quality. Works with a 64 gb card.
- High quality assembly. Nice orange color. Good movies with high enough frame rate. I’m very satisfied with the camera.
- I own many HD camera from tiny keychain HD to lines GoPro Hero 4 but this RUNCAM 2 is best value for money if you want perfect HD on the go. Have stabilization system (anti-vibration), Wifi connectivity for windowed view via Smarphone apps, can see inventory on picture, burst photos, timelapse and most importantly for me is able to adjust the Focal view FOV degree which have similar feature to GoPro Hero cam. Its has sturdy casing with lens hood protector to protect from crash yet small enough to tuck into my cap and also on my R/C and FPV drone models with video output feature too. Great value for money. Will buy again.
