Yoiks! Not cheap Mate. But if I ever do get into FPV this'll be one I'll look carefully into. Thanks for the info.

it's just a recording camera, not FPV. it's actually pretty cheap considering it's size and quality.

I was going to buy that camera last year. I remember it now. Then I heard about the keychain camera you can buy for $11.86 shipped. I found that it takes about the same quality picture as the gopro. (I watched the demo they had on the site.) The gopro's a tad better but not $299.00 better. However, the quality is better on the pics it takes. About the only gripe I have with the keychain cam is the way it handles light. It fluctuates from dark to light when it faces bright light. Didn't notice that with the gopro.

When I get a pile of money where I can afford to waste some I'll be buying a better camera.

BTW, were you also using FVP during your flight over those craggy peaks?
