My first hatcam finally died, rip, and I bought another keychain camera (dont know which one) last year but the battery died very quickly.
So made it into a hat cam with external battery.
Just opened up the case, unsoldered the original battery leads, soldered in it's place a female JST plug , hotglued the wires to the circuit board so they won't pull out, and away we go.
I like the external battery because I can user bigger mAh lipo for long life between charges.
The battery is under the cap held in the liner by the spring clip.
Bolted and zip-tied camera to the hat.
I had to get rid of my MGB but kept the hat. Both have seen better days.

Wow, still tail heavy but I can tell it's got great glide. Add a little more nose weight, and clean up the end of the wings (one still has some extra length of tube spar sticking out) - guess I should be surprised it flew at all. Now 700 grams so will probably end up at 750 but that will handle wind well and it still will glide great
(Optimist.)
Update: 1/11/2015 - another 50 grams did the trick - it flies beautifully now. Just have to get my camerawoman back. Love flying finless.
There is so little sweep that it is basically just a flying plank. CG has to be spot on. I knew that.
