Long Range 2.4 Ghz Wireless RC Camera

has anyone heard of the 2.4 Ghz Wireless RC Camera on xheli.com? I want to know more about this. It seems like a deal too good to be true.
This is what it looks like:

Can this be used on a laptop computer? How do you mount it? How does it perform? Anyone with answers, can you post some video?

Stay away from that one for two reasons:
The camera has the transmitter integrated, with a tiny aerial. "Long range" it isn't
The receiver has a knob for selecting the channel. This knob will move off the frequency without touching it.

You can buy really good 200mW camera sets on eBay for no more than $70. I have bought three so far from this supplier and they work beautifully.

Tonystott is correct! Any time you see the knob on the back, the system will drift every few seconds and someone has to stand by the receiver constantly while looking at a monitor, and dial the knob.

If you are going to be using it in a metal tank I'd use a wired camera with a long cord instead. The metal in the tank will wreak havoc with a wireless camera.
