Its ultra small, light weight design and low cost make it a great camera for casual in flight videos.
Strap it to your wing, fuse, tail, canopy or just about anywhere. Its recessed buttons prevent vibration from changing the functions and makes it easier to attach to your model. And because the camera lense is mounted on the edge the whole case is more aerodynamic than other cameras. The SD card (Not included) is removable and the camera has a USB port for direct PC copying. There are many similar cameras to this one on the market, but be assured this model has a true 30 frames per second rating and works perfect with a fast SANDisk memory card (Sold Separately) for jitter free picture motion. Lense hardware is 640x480px and maintains the correct aspect ratio without AVI manipulation*. Producing a clear 640x480 AVI jitter free movie. Specification: Size: 52x30x12mm Weight: 18g incl. battery & keychain
Voice-activated standby time: 120 hours standby time Capacity of memory card: Can support upto 16GB (max.)
USB interface: USB1.1/2.0
Included accessories: Turnigy TD16 camera
*Other similar cameras have software AVI formatting to 720x480px, reducing clarity of the 640x480 native image from the lense. While this sounds good on paper, it makes the movie less clear and enjoyable.
Required: Micro SD card 2GB (Sold Separately See related items)
The reason I'm asking is because windows 7 doesn't recognize the camera, and I was wondering if this was the same as the #16 HD camera. The program that I downloaded, Nr16Setup Vers. 22.214.171.124 comes up, but does not see the camera.
William, that's a good review and reflects what I think of this camera too. Also this camera can be mounted easily on a micro quad Xcopter. and just about any small RC aircraft. All the best and Happy flying!
Not a very good camera... Just ok. The memeory card bought with this (scandisk) is very slow and jittery pictues and movies. However looking at the cost it is ok. I installed a fast spec card and then it was much much better. In my moving car video, the movie was a bit wavey. Not sure if it was because of the card or the camera. Sound quality is terrible. It is #7 camera with date and time in white on left top corner. It has a yellow led and the still picture wuality is not that great. This is just a basic camera. Wish HK could stock the #3 camera which is much better. You can upgrade the firmware on this camera. I am running 2.07 i guess... thats the latest. Weight is accurate as mentioned. Try a faster SD card and the frame rate will be much better with less drops. Also, the frame rate, pic inverted, datestamp can be changed using the upgrade utility.

Video is not bad. Sound is no good. Functions are not always responding, you have to use the reset button many times.

I bought one and it arrived faulty. Would thake pics but the video only recorded sound and a black screen. The LEDs flashed and blinked in weird patterns unlike the other 3 that I bought from Ebay. I sent HK a youtube videoof the LEDs flashing weirdly and an attachment of the video it recorded in the youtube demo (date stamp, time, and my voice narrating identical in both attachment & video) but still not enough proof for HK to replace it!! They want it sent back registered mail, that's $15.00 for a $13.00 item = $28.00. I've spent over $2500.00 with HK,how much proof do they need to replace a $5.00 cost item to them??? BAD PR!!
