The wiring of the camera is not really different from other FPV cameras. Only the analog and serial control is now on the same pins. The camera automatically detects which variant is being used.



If you want to control the camera normally by joystick, connect the joystick as follows.


For the UART control you have to connect the RunCam Racer 2 to your flight control via serial interface. Detailed instructions on configuration and control can be found in this article.
