And what plane are you looking to put this on Bing? The type of plane will make a difference to which camera to get .. as will the type of flying you want to do. .... and also where you want to put the camera.

Yeah nice vid Pete, must be the 2200 as it dosent have the seasickness effect of the gopro.
I am tempted to get a SW just for videos, I love the EGP for distance and gliding but putting a decent camera on the front wont work so well.

One thing i have wondered is with the SW will it glide well with 5000mah 3s onboard .. and still thermal ok?

Yeah i am also keen for a catchup too ... when is the next Canberra meet!

Been looking to go to wee jasper (not far from canberra), some nice locations there and some weird rock formations like this..



Might combine it with a fishing trip and take the fpv gear in the boat to a few nice spots.

Well BW, I'm real happy with the Seawolf 690 I have, can't better it for my needs and I would recommend it 100%. I did have to replace the UV filter which the company sent it free of change (great service). Others have seen the live feed and they say it's one of the best camera views they have seen. I don't use any pan but I have the 115deg lens which is a good compromise wider angle. You can get this camera uncased which saves weight but I prefer the bullet proof alloy case version

An LRS, a new 1.2 reciever + patch, a new drive train for the Scorpion, my mates glass version of the SW (coz he's never gunna build it), EZOSD with an antenna tracker and a really impressive tripod with some sort of painting device crudely attatched. (Though the OSD is kind of Teamshermans fault.)

New drive train is already on its way and the LRS will be next.
