Wow, that looks great.

Okay, it does not like vibrations, but thats for most of the CMOS Cams.

PS.: the landings are really scary.

Mine should be in the mail, the first person to ask me whether it is noisy gets a lifetime ban though

Cheers,

If you look at ommadawn's vids (linked in the first post) you can see it has a time/date stamp in the lower right corner.

The vids seem to be the onboard recording, not the live out.

My cam has not get here yet, so I don't know if you can "turn off" all the icons/symbols.

Looks like something I could use. Need to make a Awacs pod to put it in.

I dont think the date/time can be deselected. Theres not a lot you can do with the settings. However the characters are is quite unobtrusive.
The day I flew was cool and overcast, so not sure about how it handles bright sunlight/ground transitions.

This is possible, There is a square in the top left of the screen that tells you that is is recording. however that said I don't think that this will cause a problem with looking at the osd.
