    It looks to be about the same size as my Boscam FPV cam which will make it easier to mount. So what rig are you going to mount it to first? Can it be hooked up to a set of goggles or a viewer for FPV? Looking forward to the night vision results and roughly how much is this unit?

    It cost me $51.77 to my door. ($39.99 on the store)
    I have a front mount, and I just made a side mount for my SCX10.
    As far as a set of goggles, not sure. Haven't found any info about that yet.

    Sorry about the delay --
    Ok, so here is some video. first the words...
    I seems to take very good video, I only a 2 GB older SD card. The new ultra SD cards have a faster data transfer rate. So the frame rate goes up and the jittery look goes away.
    Night time... Well, if you are moving, then not so good. Maybe if you used it with the motion detection, it would be great.
    So here it is... the video -

    Ya, it's not that bad. In low light it seems to do ok. The truck lights actually hindered it a little bit I think. But over all, for the price, it's a great xtra camera to have for on the truck.

    Nice find bud. Looks like another great addition to the tool box. Small enough to fit my crawlers even.

    It has taken a few bumps, and still going... But I will drive it through a few "drops" if you'll replace it lol

    Update -
    They are junk... After haveing the first one replaced due to a battery issue, the second one don't record very well at all. So save your 39 bucks and save for a better one.

    Sorry to hear that, I kinda figured right from the start that was gonna be the outcome.

    At first it looked real good. It even worked pretty good. They might be best for using in the air, just not a ground camera.
