I got my Sony Webbie! and with the wide lense.

It's installed in the nose of my easystar, I was a little nervous if it was too heavy for the star.

The test flight went ok, although the weather was bad.

I think it's a great camera for UAV and FPV, although it is big for the Easystar.

I'm using the same camera and attaching it to the same location in my tailless. I used velcro to fix it and a thin velcro strap to make sure everything stayed put.
I didn't know you could get a wide lens as an option and I like the way you rigged a servo to it.

Hi Hooks,

What software are you using at the end to stitch together the motion compensated frames? Something like Deshaker?

For good video reception I use the EZ tracking antenna with ground station.

It uses the Right audio signal to send GPS info from the EZosd.
I'm not a salesman, but it's just - real Plug and Play. Great OSD + Tracking antenna + Ground Station using Google earth.
I know this Ez from Immersion is no news, but I like the very easy and simple way off using hard technology.
Maybe it has some interest from the Arduteam. No need of extra transmitter to send info from GPS - just like the Xbee.

The sound on the video are just to show the signal comming from the transmitter. (awful sound)

That's great!
I got my wide angle and fish eye lens today.
I'm going to hook up my webbie like this...

I have been using that camera for about 6 months and is very good. But i had vibration problems using HD 1080, whem recording video, VGA works incredible well. The live video is great too! Also if you want i can mod your webbie to take pictures a video using your radio control and disable the image rotation when you rotate the camera up and down... .
