I am a bit surprised to hear so much hiss with NTG2.

It's supposed to be a shotgun - it shouldn't have problems recording sound from 2 meters distance.

Did you try different levels on beachtek or in camera?

The hiss is not too bad. Motor noise is worse.
Try setting the RODE's attenuator to -10 or -20dB. The switches are inside the battery compartment
