Ordered mine from the bay for <$10, but haven't got it yet so can't speak to quality.
Description matches all the others.

It's going to be really hard to beat the hobbyking price and they ship very fast. Usually no more than a little over a week from HK.

I got two here:

Arrived within a week or so, work fine..
Here's a video:

The quality was even better uncompressed.
HK's seem to be a steal with the card included, but will they ever get stocked up....

Duck, very nice...
How did you uncompress the video?

By uncompressed I meant before YouTube processed it, i.e straight from the camera as viewed on my pc before uploading. With these prices on can easily buy several and plonk them different places on the plane giving multiple angles. You do need good light though, I would stick to sunny days. It's also good to point them a bit downwards, they don't handle light (sky) and dark (ground) at the same time very well.

Delivery time


Ordered mine one month ago today off Ebay from a seller in Hong Kong. No sign of it yet. I have a sinking feeling I just might be one of those Ebay statistics.

Let me guess, free shipping?
Don't give up hope.... yet. It's probably been sitting in customs and will arrive today!

+1 to Bob. You get a pre-tested (ie, non-dud) camera, know you're getting the V3 camera, know when it'll arrive, have some after-purchase support, and help a fellow flier. Seemed like a good deal to me!
