No digital stabilization, but it looks good and doesn't need it. I tried two mounting styles as indicated below. #2 style is best as #1 sometimes rotates the cam accidentally even from flight momentum.

#1 Testing out the X1 & 808 combo all stock with props not balanced, but the results were surprisingly good. Fighting moderate wind with stock tx, high rates and no canopy. E-flite 500Mah battery velcroed front to back and 808 velcroed underneath the battery it in-line, hanging too low to land. Hand launch and catch.

#2 Onboard video testing: Syma X1 quadcopter w/808 #16 V2 D lens micro camera flying in an indoor bball court. Props balanced after the snowy flight. Stock Tx, no canopy. E-flite 500Mah battery velcroed perpendicular to flight path at back of chassis, camera attached forward of the battery instead of under it so I could land.
