The sale plane that i was building is about 3/4 of the way done, and i had to stop (unexpected guests and no where left in the house to build it), but for Christmas i was givin a small 95% ready to fly park flyer. now its the 29.99 special from Harbor freight called the yellow bee. but its actually a fun little airplane to play with until i get my other one done and get a radio for it. i have already crashed my "yellow bee" on the first test flight i lost control and it landed in a neighbors window well. but damage was limited and it still flys well.

i have also found one of the video systems i think i might use. it is called the FlyCamOne2. its about 100 bucks and is 3"x1-1/2"x1/2" in size and only weighs 1oz it does 640x480 video and 1280x1024 still. it uses SD cards for storage, and the camera lens can be rotated 90 degrees so you can point it basically any way you need. if any one has used this or the previous version i would be interested to hear how it works before i buy one.

The FlyCamOne2 is great. Couldn't be easier, more robust or lighter. Not the image quality of a still camera or "real" video camera, of course, but better than the VGA stuff we get from the wireless cameras. Highly recommended.
