Default Video guys.. is this junk ??

As some of you know, I am interested also in Video. A buddy sent me this link. Video guys, for a rookie AP guy like me....... is this junk ? Or a decent buy?

2CoolRC S1500A Dashcam Onboard Video/Audio System

NEW UPGRADED CAMERA AND LENS FOR SHARPER PICTURE IN LOW LIGHT!

The 2CoolRC S1500A Dashcam onboard video system is our most powerful system and uses the same advanced technology as our S200, S800 and S800A. The S1500A puts out a whopping 1.5 watts and is over 7 times the output power as our S200 system thus increasing the range even that much further. The S1500A also has a small and very light external transmitter (T1500A). 50x50x30 mm. The S1500A will also accept optional camera units and telemetry units such as our soon to be released GPS Downlink showing altitude, speed, heading and GPS location. The S1500A uses a 4 channel lock on the receiver eliminating the need to fine tune

Includes:
Camera unit w/Audio
T1500A Audio/Video Transmitter with supporting cables and detachable whip antenna (upgradeable)
4 Channel Lock Audio/Video receiver with detachable whip antenna and power cable
Our A20 LRA Long range, telescoping antenna kit for added range
RCA type audio/video cable and instruction manual


Dashcam S1500A system $199.95

I don't know anything about the technical aspects of wireless video equipment as I have not gotten into it...yet...
However, I have one personal rule: When I buy my first wireless setup (for the Giant Stinger I'm building ), I'm not buying anything until I have seen a video made with that equipment by AN INDEPENDANT SOURCE. Right now I'm leaning towards a setup like what Fubar1 has. He's doing some interesting things and his 800 system looks pretty good. Hopefully, a little research will keep me from buying junk I will never be happy with.

Thanks Shut, I just wanted to see what the numbers look like from the video guys out there. What makes this so cheap? Get what you pay for. Is this better than the black widow?
