My personal favorite is the HD camera that Hobby King offers. once the button-ology is mastered it provides excellent results, and it is quite inexpensive.

I received this GoPro clone from Hobby King.

It one ups the GoPro while costing about a third or a fourth of the price and even has better contrast, color rendition and scene lighting handling.

The results are spectacular.

I was disappointed with the FlyCamOne2, but the peripheral "hot foot" servo controller, etc... were somewhat nice if overpriced.

The Hero GoPro produces good results but I took the risk and purchased one of these on a whim.

I expected the above "wing camera" to produce video no better than the FlyCamOne2...

I was quite surprised to discover that the AVI's the wing camera creates are on par with the more expensive GoPro. Not bad for the price!
So to download the video off of that little wing camera you just plug it into your computer via the USB cable? Also what is the best way to mount it on a wing?

I've tried using a cheap and chearful key fob camera I got for about 12 on ebay. It's not perfect but it does work.
