I just recently got a Micro Keychain camera off of eBay, because I wanted to have a lighter camera that I could put on my rc things. I figured that I could get more realistic footage to how the planes/quadcopter flies because it would have less weight on it. Here is a picture of how small it is and a sample video that I shot from my quadcopter:

After I got all of the vibration issues under control with my quadcopter, I made some longer landing gear and put my Gopro on the bottom of the quadcopter. On the first flight I have vibration issues, because I took off the support for the arms so they flexed and amplified vibrations. After I put them back on, the quadcopter flew well. Here are the videos I have made so far and some pictures of how the camera is mounted.
