Is any one interested in a group purchase of this camera-FC Cam 1?
It comes with special mounts that are shaped to the airframe and an aerodynamic leading edge.
You can check out the specs on the website: www.theflightcommander.com

Depends what you want to do with the footage. 30fps is fine for normal speed playback and the video resolution is pretty high, not quite Full HD but not far off. Where 30fps will lose out over 60fps is when you want to slow the footage down and do slow motion videos. The higher the fps the more frames youve got to work with. 60fps will look alot smoother when slowed down compared to 30fps

Thanks for the info Nighthawk. I'll get one, it should be good for what i want it for. I'm still waiting for the cost of shipping once i have it then i will advise the total cost. I think $60 is good value for a camera and specialy shaped mounts, lets hope the shipping is resonable.
