Have any of you tried one of these http://www.ebay.com/itm/Mini-Car-Key...tem4aafcbf7e8? I have got one and I love it. It is six bucks and you add a micro SD card like is in your cell phone. It has about a 2 hour battery life and then you can watch the video on your computer. Works great and it is about the size of a half dollar and for six bucks you can't beat it.

I have and the quality just wasn't there for me. For smaller planes, its a great idea. But for my video above, using a heavy gopro wasn't an issue as the cub had a 106" wingspan.

I have a couple of those key chain camera's and I use them for any plane that is to small to fit a go-pro camera!

The go-pro fits great on my 1/4 scale cub!

Hey Ford!

Do you have any pictures of your cam mount in your cub? Any advice for the vibration issues with glow engines? Have the keychain cam with wideangle lens attached.

Thanks!

Restored Cub With Brodie Device

Thought this might be of interest to you all. This plane is at our local airport and was restored by the family of one of the pilots that actually flew and landed of of the LSTs. Our club is doing a 1/4 scale version of this plane for the family as well as a club project.
