Default b400 video camera

hi all,

once i get my 400 up and running ill be looking at camera options for making flight videos. does anyone know of a good camera for mounting to the b400, where and how to mount it and what weight the b400 can carry without affecting flight too much?

No expert here ,but I just mounted a go-pro clone with a water proof case between the skids on my 450. Just wanted to see what kind of quality I would get. I was very impressed .
I'm not sure on the weight.but it didn't affect the flight much. but only did wide circles nothing to fancy. Now if I knew how to upload it I could show my flying area. Some might be jealous if you like wide open areas.

Yeah, get one of the HD keychain video cams on e-Bay. Lightweight and they work well.

the guy i work with has one of these for his plane - except i think it was from hobbyking. the quality is ok, a little wavy and during flight as the plane turns the video takes 2-5 seconds do adjust to different light conditions giving a fairly average video.
i was hoping for something that produced very good quality video/sound - without going too heavy and can be mounted under the b400 frame without modifying the skids

the clone was my son's. he said it was almost as much as go-pro wishes he would have bought the real thing tho' it does take good pics IMO . he says little issues w/it. I haven't used it much just the two flights and he helped me with camera. I think price was $249.00 but not sure. I was looking at Dice a while back looked interesting. anyone with experience with one of those?
