Talk about rubbish, I'm using the 600TVL 1/4 1.8mm CMOS FPV 170 Degree Wide Angle Lens Camera PAL/NTSC 3.7-5V from Banggood. http://www.banggood.com/600TVL-8_0MP...?rmmds=myorder

It's just barely serviceable (bad colors, bad light-to-dark transitions, and terrible light handling) but I do like the form factor and I wish there was a better version of an FPV camera in this size. I just put the Swift Mini on a 160mm build but it's still too big for something in the <=120mm range.

plenty of folks fitting this Swift mini in their 3" quads.

A fellow has recently produced a new canopy for The RotorX Atom 122 V2 which accomodates this Runcam Mini, and I am going to try it (check the Atom thread). Now I guess 122mm is bigger than 120mm .. but

yes, I have a 3" quad that it fits into also (Razorquads 130mm); but Atom V1 is a lot smaller. I need to take a picture of it side by side one of these days. I technically probably could get it to fit, but I'd need to "raise the roof" a bit. Either way, the Swift Mini is still a lot larger and heavier than the form factor of the camera I mentioned. Peace!

Anyone knows how much current @5v this cam actually needs? My VTX (diatone sp3) can only deliver 300mA, so i wonder if it will be enough.

I just measured current the current draw, approx 130mA@5V if anyone else is interested.

you sir are my hero! Thanks couldnt find that info anywhere and my vtx 03 only delivers 360mAh max if its in 200mW mode. So 130mA seems pretty good, i worried it would be a lot more

I thought this would fit my realacc x210. I was wrong.

None of the included mounts will fit a standard 5 inch quad frame from what I can tell. I made it fit but drill through through the bottom plate. Worth noting though.
