Default $20 dollar slow stick camera

My girlfriend has this cheap digital camera she bought at wal-mart for 20 bucks. It has like a 352x288 max res so its very cheap. I got the idea to rig it up to my slow stick. It fits perfectly between the servos with the lens facing out to the side. its like 4 1/2'' long. I rigged a spare micro servo to snap a pic using the aileron control. I tested it and it worked. I'm waiting for the sun to come up so i can test it out. I hope it doesnt affect the cg too much. The camera is made by digital concepts. I'ts just a cheap plastic camera so i'll see how it goes!

At the moment, I've seen W-M clearing out Vivitar ~1MP camera @ $35; true 1MP CMOS sensor, larger than Aiptek PenCams but shouldn't be a problem for the Slow Stick. fwiw my local W-M has dozens in stock.

Here's a cool switch for the Aiptek pencam SD that you guys maybe interested in...

I've got two, fly the Aiptek on my Slowstick, and get GREAT pictures.
