haven't used it. looks like it would be worth a try though and i am in the market for a new one. my panasonic cx161's (both of them) got shorts in the wimpy connector cables today and limited my flying to 1 flight with this one i worry about that separate adjustement board -- where are you going to stick it? it seems like it will make things kinda bulky.

I use it with the laptop and easycap so the recording is not the best, i am going to use my Canon mini dv to record the flights.

Keith
I should have a flight with it on my Mclain wing next week some time (Christmas, weather etc etc)

I posted this one quite a while back. http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showp...6&postcount=70 I got one for Christmas, but it won't be here for a while (ordered to 20th).

Can't wait to see your flight video.
