I have been designing a second mount for my Anafi's (for rear facing or auxilary front view). I have tested the Insta360 G2 , RunCam 2, Mobius Maxi and lastly the DJI Action 2 . I couple of notes:
1-The Insta360 G2 has a lot of vibrations transmitted to video - nice shots for stills not motion (on drone)
(Does great job if you use post process app however, vibration is still there)
2-The RunCam 2 4K and the Mobius Maxi 4K work, nice video however, stability is poor. You do not see the vibrations you see with Insta360 G2 just camera woble and horizon shift
3-The DJI Action has excellent video stabilization and quality the problem is when mounted 1.5" above battery the Anafi will loose front to back stability because of CG .
4- I have a new lower profile DJI Action 2 mount that drops camera 1.5" to .1 above battery will test as soon as weather clears up
5-The higher mount works great for lighting as pictured

I will post video ASAP

This may seem like a waste of time however, I use my Anafis 10x more then my DJI Mavic Enterprise, Skydio 2 and Yuneec H series drones

Here are links from my Google Drive videos


DJI-RC DJI Action 2 vs Runcam 2
M-DJI Moubius MAXI vs DJI Action 2
M-RC Moubius MAXI vx Runcam 2

All are done in 1080 100FPS (make sure your player is set to reflect this (all set to default auto)

Summary: They all work well for stills -
RunCam 2 has some type of color cast issue looks like a very light tan tint
Mobius MAXI looks like it is being sharpened
DJI Action 2 has good stabilization at the cost of a little sharpness - however, it will run at 4K 16:9 120FPS

Hope this helps

All 3 cameras weigh between 48 and 54grams

I will be using the DJI because of good stabilization

I will post STL model if anyone wants to print or you can get from my ebay store for 19.00 US
I need a few more test flights first.

Here are the STL models for anyone that wants to try printing. If you have problems you can always buy from by ebay store "IronSky Mounts". The only request is you do not sell them or prints of same.
