Default On plane video camera options?

Hi guys, I want to mount a video camera on my planes, do you have any suggestions on which camera works the best? How are they mounted?

Thanks

The reviews on this one are pretty good. Anyone use one before? I'm thinking about mounting it in front of the cockpit to get the pilots POV.

Default Go pro

I mounted my go pro to the gear of my 40%er. I used Velcro and tye wraps to secure the base. Clipped the camera to the base. No probs

Which GoPro do you have? Did any vibration show up in the video?

Check out the new Midland HD cameras. They mount with a single 1/4 inch bolt, and have a rotatable lens assembly so you can mount them at any angle and still have an upright image. Fairly wide angle so vibration does not affect the video quality. They also have a simple slide bar to turn them on.
