My friend and I are thinking about putting two cameras on a an F-22 ARF we just bought. It has a 4 foot wingspan and an electric ducted fan motor. Does anyone have any suggestions on what type of camera system we could put in it?

I guess JMS already knows my answer :P

BTW, I'd actually say the AGC on the 151 is fast... too fast. I've already had some conditions where the brightness would start oscillating on a fixed image :o

It's just bad. Exposure responds slower than the 131, but it can go wild, and the white balance and saturation controls are on the other hand way too fast...

Yeah I know your answer.... KX151 is best used for a hacky sack around the boys during a flying break! :P

Get your new helicopter yet? I'm tempted in the same heli as well because of the price and the reviews you had mention. :)

Nope, I should get it in 1-2 days. It will come with servos, but I guess they'll be rather cheap ones so I've ordered a set of Waypoint W092s, 3 of the metal gear/ball bearing ones for the head, and a fast tail version one for... the tail? :P

These should only come at the end of the week/next Monday as they come from abroad, I'll see if I manage to wait for them or if I'll try it with the stock ones meanwhile :P

But I've read even more good reviews meanwhile, so really put some hope into it :)

BTW, the good servos alone are half the price of the heli with motor/esc and servos :o

Yep you're right JMS :P

Plus it's somewhat my job too, so it's even more excuses hehe

Yeah, but that's not the servos being expensive, rather the heli being outrageously cheap... $200 for a full carbon-alu machine with motor, ESC and servos...

For the good servos that's about $20 each so reasonable, x4 that's $80, and I actually took an extra one to get the 4-pack price so that's about $100...
