Expect new videos sometime soon. I intend on attaching it to my HK combat & slope wing. Conditions aren't Ideal but the wing can handle some knocks so will be making a video as soon as I can.

Mine seems nice and sharp and quality is as good as you can expect for $40. Motion detect works nice!!!! Left it running in my office and had multiple clips when I came back from lunch. It appears that the camera runs and constantly records footage buffered to internal memory. When it detects motion it records what is buffered to memory card.

Sander, go to page 5 and read his reason to start this thread, he thinks I am biased and this camera is good enough for the price.
What I am puzzled, what make this thread so "official"...

It's not an FPV camera... doesn't have "live" out....Why is it here?

Would be more suited to the Aerial Photography forum.

Does have live out. Sends a live out signal when in the motion detect mode.

Yes, possible, when connected to TV and navigating in menus.

I wonder if that lens would fit on a #11 keychain camera. I bet the image quality of the keychain camera would improve a lot by having a better lens.

I love the wider angle of view and the video out is a huge plus, but the low framerate is disappointing.
It would make a great camera for my mini FPV plane, any idea of the weight minus the battery?

I may buy one later on (after replenishing the hobby fund after buying a GoPro and stuff to build a tricopter...)

Hello,
The concept is interesting but videos look laggy. For a HD camera it's not a good point.
I have a #11 keychain camera, the videos have a better quality for the same price.
