Ha, I bought one of those off Woot today. Been looking at the Go Pro Hero HD2 but at half the cost, I can use it for a variety of things including flying on my X8. At $139 it was cheap enough that I can use it, if for nothing else, family trips to the beach. Won't have to worry about destroying my $800 Cannon or losing $300 Go Pro with water and sand.
