Need suggestion on a new Video camera for filming planes and helicopters

I have a samsung HD solid state (SD card) camera. I forgot which one but it does ok when I'm using it. I typically set it to Manual focus and I'm pretty decent about being able to track the airplane. But Its giving me grief and staring to not power up all the time and the battery self discharges. So I"m looking at Video camera. I'm wondering what is a good $500 or less HD camera that might be easier for my fellow RC buddies to use when filming. I wish that I did not have to use Manual Focus (auto focus mode ends up focusing in and out and gets blurry then the filmer loses the plane).

I can admit that RC filming is both a skill and art but looking to even the playing field if I can.
Thx for any recommendations

Just noticed they have 3D cameras in the hand held variety... That alone might be interesting to see..
