NEW! Version-2: 3" x 1-1/2" x 1/2" (camera only), 1 oz. V.2 changes include: larger resolution, LCD display, rotating lens, longer battery life, and a thermal activated motion detector. Video camera includes audio, still photos, a voice recorder, USB drive, and a Webcam. Unit is small enough to mount on just about any model airplane, small parkflyers, RC cars, trains, skate boards, or even a kite. Can be remotely activated using an additional servo. Videos are recorded with a resolution of 640x480 for clear playback, complete with sound, and 1280x1024 pixels for still photos. Camera lens rotates 90 degrees so you can take photos or video from multiple angles. Built-in rechargeable 200 mAh Li-Ion battery that charges via the USB port on your computer in about 1 to 1-1/2 hours. For video and audio-recordings, FlyCamOne2 requires a minimum sustained write speed of 9 megabytes (MB) per second and a read speed of 10MB per second (not included). With a 2GB SD card (not included) the video recording time is about 30 minutes. Webcam use requires the installed software and USB cable. No software required for all other uses! You can edit and compress the .avi video files using Windows Movie Maker, included with Windows XP SP2 and Windows Vista.

Oh yeah forgot to ask - any chance you might have a remote switch for the shutter - sure would save the battery and make better shorter movie clips?

Yes, the remote switch is available now. You plug it into any channel in your receiver and assign a switch on your transmitter. Then, you can turn your camera on and off in flight using your transmitter switch and your camera will be charged by your battery in the plane. This interface is $29 shipped.

Wow i gotta ask, is the camera like mounted on the side of a rudder, or on top of a T-tail? If it is a T-tail glider that is.

on top of T-tail. But you could also mount it on the side and then rotate the image once you edit it...

Cool, well ive got me a Hand held type Digital camcorder heavy(7oz) but with a massive 60in wingspan slow stick, it'll work just fine. Some day i would like to get me one of these though.

OK - I bought a "switch" for my FCO2 here (a week ago!) and finally had an oppertunity to try it out!! Works like a charm!! With the switch you can activate the video and de-activate it, No more 300mb pluss videos!! Unless you want them!! Sweet!!!

$79.99 + $7.99 shipping. I got it in a couple of days.

So it appears to me like you paid $87.98 shipped for the one you bought instead of buying it here for $85 shipped.

I didn't find this forum until after the fact unfortunately. Still better than hobby lobby's price. The only place I can find the interface cable is here http://www.curverc.co.uk. I'm really interested in getting one only for switch activation and not necessarily for charging the camera. I read somewhere that the pins on the base were fragile and broke freely. Did you experience those pins to be loose. I did take the base plate off and looked inside. The pins look okay to me and not that fragile.
