What are you using for ground station flight recording?

Tried 3 aipteks. Even different models exhibit the same issues. Signal drop or momentary low signal results in split screen or blue screen recording. Burnt out of these things. What are some good ground station flight recording devices?

HD recording of an analog SD signal is not possible.
The Aiptek people use that records through static is the MPVR+CB (known by various names).

Thanks ian. Maybe 640 x 480. The hd aiptek and another sd aiptek all stopped recording or broke the picture when the signal changed.

The Aiptek MPVR+CB records through static. Most other Aipteks do not.
This has been discussed hundreds of times in this forum.

The question is, where are they? Nobody is selling them.

Some new options (Emprex and Vupoint) discussed in the last few pages of that thread.

this one beats the PV500 and its price tag
SD card with LCD ideal for field use
