The Runcam Racer Nano FPV camera is basically the Racer 2 in an ultra small form factor. This is designed specifically for micro drones and tiny whoops.
Because of the space and weight limitation, we had to use those tiny little cameras with poor performance. Finally Runcam made a decent camera in a small enough form factor to be used on whoops.
It’a pretty amazing that they managed to make it this small. It has the exact same performance as the Runcam Racer 2 camera we reviewed recently.
This “Nano Size” might become another size standard for FPV cameras, alongside with Micro, Mini and full size. Here is a side by side comparison with the full size Eagle 2 camera, another of my favourite cameras.
Where to Buy?
- Banggood: http://bit.ly/2vKBSrC
- M8 1.8mm Lens with 160° FOV
- Input Voltage: 3.3V to 5.5V (1S LiPo)
- Dimension: 14x14x17mm
- Weight: 4.5 grams with wires
The wires are about 47mm long.
There is M2 metal insert on each side for mounting. The wires are soldered directly to the camera board, secured with glue.
It weighs slightly heavier than other Nano cameras Runcam released before, because of the plastic protection casing.
You can change camera settings just like the Racer 2 using a joystick controller which is not included. You can also hook it up to your flight controller if your FC supports camera control. The camera menu and settings is just like the Racer 2.
I didn’t notice any difference in terms of image quality from the Runcam Racer 2. Here is a demo of the Racer 2 camera.
