This camera is a standalone whoop cam without the typical 25mw vtx attached to it. There are a few different whoop cameras out there, this is the higher resolution and wider FOV of the traditional whoop cameras. It’s essentially the same as the OV231 but on a smaller PCB that actually fits into the Bee Brain V2 mount. In fact it’s a little smaller than the mount so you may need to add a small dab of glue to secure it firmly.
Again, this is the traditional whoop camera in wide FOV. It has that warped lens distortion that many don’t like, but we actually prefer. It’s also a ¼” sensor camera. More recent ⅓” sensor cameras like the RunCam Nano 3 will perform a little better with light handling than this camera. Unfortunately, the Nano 3 has been temporarily discontinued for now. That’s why we picked up this camera to stock. It’s still a great little cam and very cost effective.

Nice and light with good image quality
I am blown away by this camera to be honest. The color is spot on, and frankly, I get a better image than some of the bigger run cams that I have on my 4s 3inch and 6inch quads. I have only put a few packs through it at this point but I am extremely impressed. If more were in stock, I’d buy some in bulk as backups.
Honestly, I wasn’t expecting a whole lot for the price. I was pleasantly surprised with the video, image detail, well focused.. I’ve seen more expensive cameras deliver less.
I Mac learning anything Kabab “suggests”, your 99% pretty sure to be more than satisfied.
Bought this to replace my nano 3 that has been less than impressive. Overall image quality is more consistent and predictable. No weird pixelation like N3. Perfect fit into the bee brain mount. Good performance at this price.
Great little cams, perfect fit in the BeeBrain canopies.
