As far as I can tell it’s called a “Q5 HD 720P DV Mini Digital Camera“, and is about £8 which makes you think either “can’t go wrong with £8” or “can’t be worth it” – I’m went with the first one.
How does it work?
2 buttons, power & mode. Switch it on and press power again briefly to start recording video. Press mode again & the power button again will take a photo. Once more & you can record audio and final mode is motion detection.
Lots of squinting at it trying to work out the colour of the tiny mode LED is. I put the strap around the nose of the fuselage and taped it in place on top of my SAS Wildthing. My mates go as far as using velcro, when I get some, I’ll probably do that too.
Can’t work out how to get rid of the date/time detail and that high pitched whine is really grating! (not sure if that happened during an impact or not).
Here’s a video it took up at Fairlight Firehills. No wind but I gave it a throw anyway.
This video was taken at Butts Lane in Eastbourne. Really blowy on the corner of a bowl so couldn’t fly straight for long!
Overall, not very impressed, but not going to spend more money and will keep using it.
Only just. I give it 2 stars, not even sure if it’s value for money…
