I'm guessing that is a 90 degree lens. I like that for some flights, but it is a bit fish-eyed to a few folks.

The second camera (that has the motorized zoom) looks a bit fragile.

Generally speaking, when choosing a new CCD camera candidate, it essentially becomes a wild guessing game. That is because it is difficult to know the practical performance until it is installed. I have a bone-yard of cameras, that appeared just fine on paper, but ended up being unfit for R/C model applications.

That is why most of us tend to huddle around the cameras that have proved to work well for our application. For me, life became good when I stumbled upon the Panasonic CX161 several years ago (which later became a near standard to other R/C'ers as well). It is long gone, but it looks like the KX131 is the new favorite choice.

You're right. That's why I have ended up going with the KX131 from BW AV.

Thanks for your input.
