I ordered my first microcam (Firefly Microcam) today.
At the local club I went to there were two stock Funrays, so I thought if I got one it should look a bit different. Plus the stock one - like most gliders(or I mean powered sailplanes... ) are very boring looking. I wish I'd gone for something more aggressive looking(dark grey with Russian stars would have been cool..), but I figured I should err on the side of visibility. I'm no good at painting (little patience), so just did something basic. I am however happy how it turned out. In the sense of lucky that there weren't bad runs etc...

Hey, it's an Onepaa X2000:

Hobbyking also sells/sold them as the Turnigy Eclipse. I have one of each... I think they're good - they're like a Mobius, but with self stabilization. If you have a part of the plane in view it will look like it's bobbing around, which is kind of annoying. But if not it takes pretty decent and stable video for 50 bucks... For a $100 plane with no FC and a 38 cam(on sale at HK back in the day), I thought this clip looked pretty stable.

Yeah not bad! I have a similar cam, AIO 1080p cam haven't used it hardly at all- I just ordered 2 more Firefly MicroCams, one died in the GT float disaster for $18 they are fantastic! true 1080p resolution IMO... Yup the Gyro effect is cool as long as plane not visible! see my MiG17 flights

Here's a flight of my crappy 1.1m Bf-109F.

1100mm Bf-109F. Trimming flight. (3 min 54 sec)


It was a swap meet find, that I paid almost nothing for (thank God!). One of her wings had been cracked/repaired and has a bit of a polyhedral, which makes her roll left at slow speed; so, she's rather cranky during takeoff and landing.

Seems to be sold out and the FTX that goes with it are discontinued but it look like it was good when available.
