I'm very happy with the front mount by Askman on my T-600E. My husband and I went camping this weekend on base and our local flying field is just down the road from where we were. On Thursday, I bolted on my home video camera and shot 2 battery packs worth of video to see if there were any unusual vibes up in the air. It was smooth! The only jarring on the video was actually whenever my husband used the tilt servo. We don't know yet if it is the resolution in the radio (72Mhz) or the resolution of the servo that is making the jarring noticeable.

On Friday, it was time to try out the Canon A640 to see if the whole system worked. The winds for the day were forecast to be 10-13mph with gusts to 18. Ick. I got out anyway and finished setting up my Flysoft switch. I wanted to see what kind of pictures we would get, so I took off even with the cruddy flying conditions. The only pictures that came back after 4 packs, were the ones where I was horsing the heli around to put it where I wanted in that wind while my husband kept on clicking away at the pictures.

I know we didn't have the best of lighting since it was getting close to sunset, but we managed to snag a few of the campground and the small lake beside it.
