This camera was put together specifically for FPVCycle and as of September 2020, the best overall looking sub 2g camera we’ve seen. This camera was designed to fit into the BeeBrain V2 mount although the lens does protrude slightly out from the mount bumpers. All in all, this camera inside the BeeBrain V2 mount is the best combination of image quality per gram and mounting durability we could find for small, light platforms like the BabyTooth and TP3.
The Ant Lite 4:3 uses the same electronics and sensor as the standard Caddx Ant camera. The only difference between the standard Ant Lite and this camera is the lens and lens mounting apparatus. The lens selected for this was chosen among a dozen options and is slightly sharper than the standard Ant lens. The normal Ant Lite is a 16:9 only camera. This is NOT the normal Ant Lite. This camera is ONLY 4:3.

Now that the old OV231 is history, and the Runcam Nano 3 isn't what it used to be, this is the one you want. Tape it into the NewBeeDrone canopy (some people glue it in, but Kapton tape works for me) and go go go. Probably best camera performance per gram you can get.
Best camera for the TP3. Super light and darn good image. there are lighter cameras out there that look terrible, and heavier cams that look better, but this is perfect balance. Started using these in my whoops as well. great fov. awesome.
Caddx ant lite is a pretty good camera on a nice sunny day. I would of like to have a osd board for the camera setting.
Still have not tried it. But will soon . Hopefully I'll be able to edit this review, once I've tried it.
I’ve read a lot of reviews with folks talking about mounting the camera with hot glue, rubber bands, etc…but, for me, I heat the NBD canopy a little, widen the back side a little, insert camera. Then I take a small sharp awl or whatever and pierce a small hole where the mounting screws go on each side then I use the tiny factory screws and it works great for me. Never have my camera ever come loose unless I want to take it out and it comes out perfectly with no nasty glue all over it and definitely no Jello. Just an idea that works for me. Holla!
