    I apologize for not being much help. But here are my thoughts, If it was me I would go to the vTx board and check the connector or solder pads, they are almost always labeled(Gnd/5-12V/Video/Sound. You should be able to identify the wires and trace them back to the camera connector. If the wires are not visible at the connector then you will have to use a DVOM(volt ohm meter) and find the continuity between the board wire and connector pin terminal. Camera wiring is pretty much standard, orange/red=power black=ground yellow=video white=sound. The same process for the board can be used to determine camera wiring. I have never run into 2 orange 1 yellow on a vTx before...odd.

    Got answer from Lumenier .. run both a red and brown wires, colors almost match!!
    The the answer to problem from them " On the Quad That's actually brown ,red and yellow. Brown is Ground. Red Hot,and
    yellow is signal. Then "These will connect to the same on the camera. Black will be ground though. White will not
    be connected." This process will work. But be careful the brown and red wires are very very close. will give up date on this up grade
    on the RunCam 2 pro CMI 1200

    Thanks for all of your support
