You're the one! HA I just got one of these (my first plane ever) and am using you as the 'upper limit'! I saw your video on youtube and can't even follow the plane.

I'm a heli person but wanted something to zip around at the field. I've strengthened the canopy with velcro, replaced the ESC with 40A plush, motor with a 3500kv heli motor - on this motor I won't go above 3S.

Wait, I think there's 2 questions about 2 different cameras?

1) Still cameras for the photos? If so, it's a canon 5d mkII. Photography is another hobby of mine

2) ebay for the spycam. About $13 shipped. spycam is an example.. might want to shop around. It takes microSD (not supposed to be SDHC but I think 1 person said it worked - no guarantees ). Took like a month to get here for me. xmas rush I guess.

The fisheye lens on front is for a cellphone:

from amazon

from dealextreme

2nd link is half the price but will take 4 times as long if not longer.

PLEASE put the spycam on front and take a video! Can't imagine the ludicrous speed..

thanks, and (off topic I know - last diversion!) .. it takes decent video too..

heli video

cut with other camera footage, but all the fisheye and shallow dof shots are from it.

Yeah it's the same, but I thought sdhc wasn't compatible. Good to know it is.

LOL. I started this because I thought others might be making them fast but it seems more popular as a camera model. I have new fins so I'll be up flying (FAST) again soon.

I also bought a keychain camera because your vids did look cool....

Eventually it will be fast. First I gotta learn to fly it decently.

Yeah I want to see an onboard camera from one of you speedsters.
