I received a RunCam Split Mini yesterday and I'm very impressed by how small it is.

The build quality on the camera unit is great but the two boards have to be mated to each other and great care needs to be happen to do it properly. There is a small blue pad that is between both pieces that is used to transfer heat and pins that are on the boards that have to line up perfectly. The blue heating pad needs to stay clean along with the surface to where the blue pad sits on the board surface. If not done properly I think heating will become an issue.

Overall I'm very happy the direction that RunCam went with this unit and with the weight of the unit with metal standoffs is 18g so 13 grams above a Swift micro. The ribbon cable is also much better than the Split V1 and V2 and is more robust. Overall I don't see the need for the V1 or V2 except for the mounting pattern of the mini is 20x20 as opposed to the 30.5 mounting pattern of it's predecessors.
