Default I want a Video Camera


Guy's I am looking for an on board video camera system that I can use on nearly or on all my airplanes. I have seen a couple web sites only to end up more confused or someone trying to over sell me something. My current fleet consist of a couple of electrics like the SE 5A from GP up to a gasoline powered 30 % pitts. I have seen some really cool videos on these on board camera but I cant find or know what system is a better buy or easy to use. If any body can help I would greatly appreciate it. System does not have to be expensive however I do not want to go with something really cheap either. I would like to enjoy and understand the video pnce taken Thanks in advance

Buy a CVS disposible camcorder. Do a serach for CVS and hack. and make the mods.

You'll have about $35 in a cam that takes 640x480 res videos with sound..... and is portable.
