Video from a ParkZone Vapor
No, I'm not trying to pull anyone's leg, this video has been recorded from a 6g video camera attached to a ParkZone Etomic Vapor (yes, the 15g indoor micro flyer).
The original video can be found here:
The video includes me getting the airplane stuck in a tree, about 20 feet off the ground (at 0:58 or so), and professionally removing it by shaking it down..
After I got it down I flew it again for about 10 minutes, but the voltage in the battery must have dropped below what the camera needs, since the video is quite distorted. I did fly it for about 5 minutes last night, but did not recharge the battery, so at this time I would estimate about 6-8 minutes of flying time with a 130mAh battery. It has been recharged and unless it's windy tomorrow morning I'll try it again (hopefully without the mosquitoes).
If you'd like to see information on the camcorder, here's what I've posted in another thread:
The Vapor itself is stock, no mods, except for a 130mAh Tenergy battery.

Essentially there is nothing to the camera, just a 4GB USB memory stick with a tiny camera. I did remove the USB connector, which saved about 2g of weight.
