    Hi. I recently bought a runcam 2 . I use it for recording flights on my quad but allso to record my heli flight having it mounted on my cap. However, when recording helis they look like miles away couse of the big FOV.

    Is there any lenses using smaller FOV maby line 80 fov, that can fit the runcam 2 ?

    As far as I have found, 100 degree is as low as they go.

    You can try a Mobius camera lens, but I think it has a 120° FOV. If you can't find just the lens, you can buy the whole camera for $70 on eBay. I have one and it works great!

    The best I could find is a Nikon Keymission 80 (80° FOV) up to 1080p HD quality DVR. The casing looks like geared more for handheld video recording though, instead of a flatbed case. But seems you can buy a variety of mounting accresories (possibly to mount on your cap). The catch is that you're gonna pay around $279 for the camera alone.
