Video quality is really good
Even the light you have a really good video
I tested 2.3mm lens, but maybe I should try the 2.1
I had the Swift 1 with RCG25 lens, and this was really the best FOV for Freestyle, but the new lens are smaller and less exposed to crash impacts. Better protected and less broken lenses.
The OSD is nice too, and I don't use the microphone
Best evolution is the meta nut to put the screw and the 3 screws camera case
The camera will never move again ;)

So easy to set up and works without any flaw.
The mount is a huge step forward, but needs some creativity on older frames.
The OSD is a great idea but batt V is a bit out and cant be calibrated

The camera is great, MiC and OSD is a must have in our quads.
Also the improvement for fixing it to the quad is a good step from Swift1

Runcam has yet another great camera.
I run this on my 250mm and 180mm frames.
I recommend this for the drone hobbiest or racing pilot.

What a product! If you don't have one yet, then you are missing out.
Keep it up RunCam!

Picture quality is very good and it handles sunlight awesomely once set right best settings I've found so far is Chad Nowaks guide followed that and am super happy. The installation was a breeze this one was fitted to my eachine wizard 3 main wires then one for audio if required and one for v batt which I soldered to an esc power line. The shipping wasn't the fastest from china but that really is the only negative thing I can say buy this cam you won't be disappointed! I have even ordered another for my next build along with the runcam 3. Thanks runcam for your great products!

It has all the best features you could ask for. The next step to make it even better is have the oSD work with beta flight. Then I think you'll have a hard time to justify buying any other cam.

Camera is amazing! Plus the built in OSD is a lifesaver very happy! Just wish they sent it with extra screws as I forgot to tighten them on the maiden flight and they fell out so now I'm stuck using the side plates and not the stand it came with which I'd much rather use

Swift2 is amazing, with the added bonus of the new super lower profile Runcam short lenses. Added extra separate OSD compared to HS1177 and the extra features of onboard Mic and flight battery voltage display make this a winning camera

Stunning quality with the built-in 2.3 mm lens. OSD works like a charm.

Just Installed it in my wing, love the simple osd. Also had a wider angle lens then I was expecting

If you hate installing an OSD due to all the extra wires, this is the camera you need to get.

Build quality is excellent. I have one on an fpv wing and another on a 220 quad, both have survived quite a few unplanned landing without any issues. This camera seems to get far less blown out when heading towards the sun than others I have used. OSD display is the only minor complaint as the voltage displays about .2v lower than actual battery level, though with that said my lipo's probably appreciate not being drained so hard.
Thanks to who ever at runcam thought put additional screws in for when one inevitably gets lost.

I have really nothing to complain about. Image is super sharp and default image settings are perfect. OSD works fine. Best cam on the market right now for miniquads.
Posted by Paul Roddick on 22nd Feb 2017
The quality & clarity of the camera are excellent, the best I have used.
I got the 2.3 lens & found it a little disorientating when yawing due to the wide angle curve. However, you can get used to it & it works well in some situations. Thats just my preference.
The OSD was a disappointment as the voltage reading is not accurate. It shows about 0.2v lower & cannot be adjusted. Otherwise the OSD is simple, clear & functional ~ no complaints other than the voltage issue.
Posted by Farins on 21st Feb 2017
this is the best cam for fpv, the color is so good and the 2.3mm lens works fine even into the direct sun

I guess they listened to the customers on small improvements that made a big difference for convenient with osd pigtail and lens. On top of that the awesome customerservice they provide at runcam. Because of that, i decided to purchase more!

I was using other cameras for long time, but now that i have try the swift 2 camera, i can tell it's difficult to go back.
Very good size, metal integrated nut so you dont ha e just a screw that goes into the plastic and that was very easy to break before this upgrade, also comes with different cases, so you can choose between them, osd is very good, and image quality is very nice out of the box, and soething really nice is the configuration remote, you dont have to disarm the quad if you want to change something you just plug in to the separated two pin connector on the back... very good product i really recommend you to tryout....
Posted by Josef on 13th Feb 2017
Haven't had long to test but so far so good. Image is great, I have no complaints.
Posted by saba gvakharia on 13th Feb 2017
its great. i had swift 1 before switching to second version. the first i noticed is that every minus of old version is fixed here. quality is awesome. respect to runcam progress is very clear here.
Posted by Eric Krzeslo on 13th Feb 2017
Real good product. Latest osd and Vbat are really handy
Posted by Brian Connelly on 12th Feb 2017
If you need an osd and keeping it right. This camera is awesome.
Great camera and osd = must have.
Posted by Simon Foo on 11th Feb 2017
The vbat is very accurate. If the timer can be resetting or start counting when I start flying will be best of the best!!
Posted by Shawn Wolverton on 10th Feb 2017
I like this camera get the widest field of view you'll love it. OSD is awesome, microphone adds the little extra I wanted.
Recommend Swift 3 has horizon and level indicators.
Posted by Nick Lee on 9th Feb 2017
I just got mine and maddened my quad but so far it works great! The voltage sensor seems to be a bit off but other wise i would definitely recommend this camera. The setting cable is very user friendly and i like it a lot.
Posted by Komin Pawel on 9th Feb 2017
Camera is superb product. Comes with planty mounting accessories and to bodies which is awesome. Record is briliant and vbat osd and microphone is the most amazing thing :) which I have ever seen.
It is the best purchase for any fpv user.
Posted by RimpisaloFPV on 8th Feb 2017
First impressions of this camera are awesome. Image is slightly better than Swift v1 and the camera has nice additions to it including VBAT ( Pretty accurate ) and the microphone. Only down site in my opinion is that they should just ship it with two 6pin micro JST wires. But this camera is definetely good purchase
Posted by Jools Enticknap on 8th Feb 2017
The Runcam Swift has been my goto camera for all my racing builds, due to it's low latency and clarity. However I like to see the voltage and the flight time, so an OSD has always been a requirement. The new Runcam2 now has everything I need on screen built into the camera.
As always the it's supplied with excellent quality silicone cables and an extension lead for the OSD controller cable so you don't have to dismantle your quad to adjust the settings.
The new camera mount is made of much thicker metal than previous ones, and can really handle the knocks.
I can't recommend this camera enough, and as I build new racing quads I always use a swift 2 now.
Thanks Runcam, awesome product.

For me, OSD battery voltage is essential for FPV. OSD timer is secondary but nice to have (though this timer starts when the battery is plugged in verses throttle time - a quick calculation in your head will get you the throttle time). Anything more is gravy.
On top of the OSD though, the ccd cam itself is very good.
Posted by Unknown on 21st Jan 2017
I always loved the Swift, now it's even better. Best new features are the wider voltage range, silicone wire, and osd voltage right in the camera. Spare parts make it an even better deal. I'll keep using them on my quads

I useed this for a sub 250gram build and it's perfect that it has OSD and a mic.
