I have that one and it is great but have you noticed the colours are a bit dull. Like the greens out in a paddock?
Maybe now you mention it. They wash out a bit when you fly into the sun or is it away from the sun? but I'm still really happy with it.

Mine will cope with flying into full sun without a problem and goes ok in lower light too.

John,

Was that recorded "onbaord" or are we looking at the ground station feed??

It was recorded using a hobbycity key chain camera. Dodgy but still better than nothing.

Wait until you see the one I'm uploading now. Finally growing some gonads and doing some exciting flying!

Hmmm.... I don't remember posting that!!!
Unless I was looking at the wrong camera on the page you mentioned a link to:
http://www.mongrelgear.com.au/the-mo...category_id=10

It says:
Product Description
420 line PAL 1/3" Sony Super HAD CCD camera. Fantastic performance in a small package.

Anyway he go a camera from you so all is good.

FWIW I have lots of success with the SN555 camera. I have had about 5 of them so far.
Not the cheapest but good all round performer. Last one I picked up S/H for $50, inc P+T.
Currently prepping a DX201 for use. I dont like bare board cams, so I'm making up a balsa case. The supplied case is crazy heavy. It takes the 35g camera up to 90g!
