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
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.
