Default is this camera any good?

if you can give me any feed back on this that would be great, the person wants $48 for it

here is the copy from the add

New style mini wireless color video camera with better picture and stability.

At only 7/8 inches square and 0.5oz in weight this is one of the smallest video cameras on the market. Camera has a range of up to 1000ft clear line of site. It has clear resolution at 380 lines of real time video. This is a great camera for your airplane, helo, remote control car, or what ever else you can think of. Use it inside or out. Camera and receiver are powered by 9v battery. Comes with new color wireless camera, receiver, battery cables, video cable, and instructions.

Camera is small enough to fit in the nose of this little electric plane!

ask the person what mv it is (this camera is probably 200mv). this range is true, but on a bumpy ride the image might get jittery and lose the signal. its not a bad camera, but look for "spylinker" on this site, these are expensive but they will work a lot better for the long run.

You will probably be ok with it for small stuff and close range. I used a similar unit with a better mw tx on a Zagi a few yrs ago. Try Polarisusa.com for a good selection of cameras. I use a 470 line 2/3" CCD cam now and a polaris tx unit in my lithium poly powered Wingo Porter "Bomber". Oh yeah- I'll soon post some pics of my video backpack downlink system with the headmounted display monitor! It allows videotaping and the hmd at use simultaneously and is quite an experience to fly the plane "under the hood" from the nosemounted cam in the Porter. Doing all the hop ups on the twin S400s to get to altitude quickly and shut off the stinkpots for smoooooth video. Its a lot of fun seeing the pilots eye view from these- and aerobatics are a hoot with them on! Check out my gallery for more aerial pix and projects of mine. Good luck.
