Anyone know of a keychain camera, one small enough that won't effective the weight and have decent quality.

The cube camera that Nitroplanes, XHeli and HobbyPartz sells seems decent enough. I've messed around with the normal keychain cams and they are just "ok"

My best videos are mounting my GoPro off the side of the heli, works awesome though it's a little bit of extra weight

How is it flying with the extra weight, is it a lot of compensate or can you trim it out.

Honestly, I didn't even notice it, I still flew the same way. Of course I mounted it to the back skid to maintain some sort of balance. Check this pic and I also have some vids on my YouTube page "VKGT"

I had a better pic with the heli flying but I'm still trying to find it :P

Nice setup, I think I'm going to go that route, also about to check your YouTube video out now.

Cool. Hope it works out for ya! It's been great for me so I've even moved the GoPro to some of the other helis and my big airplanes. On my YouTube page, the 500 vids are down a little further.

Here's a couple decent vids. I fly a lot more aggressive than this but these videos are from when my GoPro was new and I was doing some testing on the heli.

Watch at YouTube

I've chosen to take vids in the 720p setting because it gets you 60FPS versus the 1080p which only does 30FPS. I'm probably going to take some 1080 vids just to see if I'm able to make out a difference.

BTW this is with a GoPro Hero HD (version 1) and the GoPro 2 is out now. Of course it's a lot larger investment than your standard keychain cam but I got tired of the crappy quality from the $30ish cams and popped on the GoPro. So far I think it's been a good investment

Thanks brotha! These were from when I first got the GoPro, I've dialed it all in and have some much better vids to upload at some point :P Taking the quad out to the dunes today so will be trying the GoPro on that
