Micro AP cam from heli-hobby

Heres the link:
http://www.helihobby.com/html/micro_video_camera.html

Iv never tried RC AP but want to get into it. Have a Flash 5 TX so it can handle it and I have an RX that can handle it.

This deal is the best iv seen soo far. Real time reciever base unit and colour transmission, at 2.4GHz transmission. At first I was thinking, drea on, it'll be WAY to expensive, but its only $100US which from my limited knowledge in the field seem exellent.

I was wondering for some advice/comments on this camera? Is it trusty or is it fualty. And I was also wondering if it can take still life pics? Dousn't say it can, well actually never mentioned...

Finally any tips about the sport in general would be good. I plan to hook the camera up to my Old Canterbury Sailplanes Eraser and make it a drone...

Also, if anyones aware of a better deal than this, please do share, Im always on he lookout for bargins so any info of this would be greatly apprieciated!


Cheers, and thanks in advance,
Nick

Both of those look fun, and kinda similar! I like how the helihobby system plugs right in to your receivers power supply.

Either way, alot cheaper than the BW system. It says it has a CCD camera at the bottom, but in the helihobby writeup it says CMOS. CCD is great, CMOS is ebay. For $100, I bet it's CMOS. 24megs is way too much for me to download on dialup, what do the videos look like?

I found the 3meg file they had at the upper part of the page, quality looks good for $100. Definitely CMOS.

Here's a video taken in a GWS Tigermoth using a Blackwidow 50mw tx system, unsure which camera he used but is definitely CCD. I say that because he owns Blackwidow AV, and he only sells CCD

Would just like you add, if you could somehow stick a CCD camera system onto that transmitter, you could have one heck of a setup. I'm no electronics whiz, though, so I'm pretty clueless. If someone figures out how to do it however, that'd be a BW equivalent for around $200 total. Not too shabby.
