Just grab one off eBay. Most StoreFront sellers will ship FedEx overseas without a second throught.
Like:NEW MPVRPLUSCB Media Player/Video Recorder MPVRPlusCB $107US
Ships International.

The price is a bit more though. Hold off a few more days for my Neuros review though. Who knows, maybe it will be just as good

Thanks for the link. I kept hitting a blank wall re international shipping.
I already have a little Aiptek HD, and its great for the pocket, but drops out when signal gets noisy or sometimes just cos it wants to.
For the money I couldnt be bothered shopping around to save $10, so will go with the MPRV+CB.

OOPS! Missed that.
Im using PAL cameras. Will the recorder still capture ok?
Or do I need to get an NTSC camera?

ok, here is the catch,
Only the US (ntsc) versions of these do A/V IN
So, i guess that means, you may in fact need an NTSC camera, sort of taking a step backwards after using PAL.

Just get a MiniDV off ebay, and be done with it, use that for the flights you want to post on youtube.
And for the quick and easy one press record as a security blanket for ALL your flights, then....get a miniDV , lol.

Sorry, i really dont know what to advise.

Stick with PAL, and find something that works with PAL.

I was rooting through my junk drawer and found a 9VDC PAL to NTSC converter I bought years ago.
Should do the trick I hope..
OH BOY!! More hardware for the flight box..

Does anyone know this one?

Hi you all.

I am new in this, and have been reading different threads, and buying
the things that i will be needing for my Fpv adventure.
My sun got this as a present from his part time job:

and he asked me if i could use it?
I would like to know if anyone has used this for saving or playing?

Here is a small pdf about what it can and how much memory it has. The price is great compare to many other branches, and it can do a holl lot of
things, i just dont know if it can be used with Fpv systems too?$Promotion/Datasheets/DigitalMultimedia/PMP-501/EN_PMP-501_DTS_lr_0307.pdf

Thank's in advance

My only concern is how easy is it to switch inputs to the front for recording.

Thanks Plesk!
Please detail how you are using this device and any pointers/instruction you might have to get it recording as simply as possible.

Video Quality:
The Camera looks a bit fuzzy and the video encode has noticeable vertical interlacing. Please tell me thats your encoder and YouTube do that.

What did you use to encode the video before you put it onto youtube? If you have Windows, give Movie Maker a try!
Save As: Windows Media DVD Quality (3.0Mbps) before you upload it to YouTube.

Hi Ommadawn

Unfortunetly the only connections on this device are the one's you see on this pictuer. It has a A/V out, and audio in. Now the 100 dollar question. Can i use it?

I've been using the CS-T60C and It's been great, the recording bitrate is adjustable and the high quality setting records mpeg2 at 9915 kb/s this ends up being about a Gb per 20 minutes. This is the highest bitrate portable recorder I've found in my research. The video is interlaced, and needs to be de-interlaced b4 upload to look any good.
The input will blue screen if the signal gets really bad. But it is quite tolerant to interference and blue screening has never been a problem in over 200 flights. The recorder needs the remote to access the recording function and all the other functions too. I've tied the remote to the recorder so it's always nearby and that's worked just fine. I've tried to playback lots of different HD video formats and none of them worked, so don't expect to use the HD out function. It's a HD player only and a standard def recorder. I really like this recorder, it's worked great for me.

The only annoying thing is that each file has to be copied over to another partition on the recorder to be readable when you connect to the computer but this is not so bad really.
those horizontal lines in plesk's video look like a reception issue to me, not the recorder. Love that song plesk

Here's of my video's made with the CS-T60C
RC Aerial Photography - Remote Control Aerial Photography and Video (3 min 30 sec)

The faint line down the right hand side of the video is from my intelligent flight OSC camera, not the recorder. watch on youtube in HQ and you'll see the quality is excellent

This video shows at around 1:30 the recorder handling video signal breakup and still recording.

wobby, on your recorder list thread do those recorders NOT BLUESCREEN (ie WILL KEEP RECORDING THROUGH STATIC)?

thats my biggest problem -- i've pleased with the video recording quality of my canon optura 300 BUT it blue screens often with the slightest static so i loose 25-50% of the flights.
