One of the problems that people have is not getting fast enough memory cards. That causes most, if no all, of the write problems. I use class 4 or better and they seem to be OK. I am always amazed at the video quality for the price. Mine are not the HD ones like they have now. Just a little more wide angle would be nice. I don't like the fisheye videos like many of the GoPro people use. The distortion bothers me and sometimes makes me a bit queasy. For cheap and easy, the keychains are hard to beat.
This is the best site for information before you buy a keychain camera.
I guess my Micro card could have caused it., I wish they have room for the full size card, its not that much more weight.
I strapped my Cisco / Flip HD cam to the tail of a 30cc Extra 330 SC in New Jersey last year, I think the quality of this camera was very good, even with the Youtube affect. Attaching a camera to a fully 3D plane with a fully capable 3D pilot can make any quality video a bit of a challenge to watch.
I only wish I was good enough to catch other plane flying at the time in frame like he did several time.
