The NerdCam3D Mk.2 is the newest, most advanced and most versatile 3D-FPV flight camera in the class of analog video/standard definition 3D-cameras. This new and completely updated model comprises state-of-the-art automotive image sensors and advanced minimum-latency video processing features. It also includes a significant number of improvements over the previous Mk.1 model. The NerdCam3D Mk.2 addresses many suggestions and feature requests by the steadily growing community of 3D-FPV enthusiasts.
The scope of delivery includes the camera, a printed bilingual manual (English, German), a bag of replacement parts containing lens holder, lens lock-ring, special M1.8x6 screws for the mounting posts of the camera case and an optional plug for the DIP-switch aperture as well as two replacement pins for the micro switches.

Notice: The camera is fully compatible with the Dominator V3 goggle. It is however not a 16:9 aspect ratio camera. Hence the 3D-image inside the Dominator V3 goggle will be stretched horizontally form 4:3 to 16:9 aspect ratio.
Each NerdCam3D Mk.2 features a built-in stereoscopic on-screen display with commonly requested status information like battery voltage, amperage, RSSI, stopwatch as well as mAh charge counter. The new NerdCam3D Mk.2 is able to poll and read out telemetry data via MSP (MultiWii Serial Protocol) from any flight controller running Cleanflight, Baseflight or other related flight controller software adhering to the MSP standard. The legacy NerdSense Mk.1 sensing extension board remains supported for the sake of RC-cars. OSD-assisted camera calibration modes provide unprecedented ease of operation.

Racing in 3D review by SeekND on 8/16/2016
Yes! It's possible to race with a 3D camera.
I've recently tested the NerdCam3D Mk.2 Stereoscopic FPV Flight Camera in a mini race quad and it was amazing!
The fact the lenses are wide apart means you are able to see further in 3D. This also means you must be original about mounting the camera on your mini quad but it's doable.
I've assembled mine on top of a ZMR frame.
Also the integrated OSD really helps you time battery times and it also adds a timer all conveniently placed at the bottom of your screen. If you are the adventruous type if can even feed GPS coordinate locations into the OSD.
Enabling the OSD is as simple as connecting the rx/tx connectors from the camera to your FC tx/rc and enabling telemetry - tested with cleanflight
