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)
No, I'm very sorry to say that the quality and the frame rate are not what you may expect, don't get me wrong, it will do in the mid time but it doesn't even give you video/audio outputs of any kind. Sorry about that.
Gregory, go into the files tab and at the bottom will be [simple instructions]. Click on it and a one page pdf doc will display simply how to use this camera. Great little camera to use on experimental aircraft or very small aircraft. I put mine on a small but fast scratch built F-22. Hope this helps and Happy flying!
I only can tell you this! I bought so far 5 cameras! and only 2 of them still working! I replace the battery on one of them and by the end of the week the new battery was puffy and trying to brake the camera case! I replace it a second time! and guess what happen again! At the end I decide the " You know what! Perhaps would be better liver, learn, and never fall again in the same hole! you hear that, the first time your hurt me shame on you! but the second time who's shame is! I think that the mobious cameras prices are going down! and that is what I'll give my mom and wife to keep in their key chain! better quality all around! Image, camera, battery. Try to remember that no matter how much we complaint, HK still only a factory direct retailer! so if this *#$%^& it will still be *#$%^&* at the end of the day!
Well.... short story, my life is to valuable to keep beating a dead donkey! hope you don't get offended, for my point of view!
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!!
