Pro and Cons, things to look out for, type of interface with PC, etc... I have a UMX Beast, as well as some other 6 to 10 oz foamies, which would all be perfect for attaching these small cameras to... thanks in advance
As Erkq noted - the #16 is currently the best choice, overall. It shoots true 720p HD video, all the parameters are adjustable via a simple-to-use config utility w/GUI, it has a user-replaceable battery that uses the same connector as the 1s 'UM' planes, and it goes for just under $40 USD without a card. Just got mine on Saturday, and I am very impressed!

Here's the #16 thread. Be sure to read the first five posts before asking questions: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1556994
There are a number of fakes - so you need to make sure you buy from a reputable vendor that is known to sell the real thing. Here's one that is highly rated. I bought mine there & service was prompt. I received the confirmation email within minutes. I ordered on a Sunday, and received the shipping notice on Monday. Delivery took less than two weeks: http://www.ebay.com/itm/16GB-HD-720P...item2317d6abd1
