Gate post broken

Sun Aug 27, 2017 8:42 pm by Gary M Jones

Just in case anyone is not aware, the main gate post at the field entrance is broken at its base just at ground level. ( the bolt side post) The post is only supported by the fencing attached to it. If the fencing fails then the post will fall and …

Action cams

Post by Tim on Tue Nov 24, 2015 4:21 pm

Time to update the old keyfob camera me thinks Cool
Now..... I don't envisage MR pro-level use or anything like that, this is more about strapping the thing to a glider etc, and getting recorded video on either an SD card etc, or played back live on pad / laptop back on the ground.
Having said that, if there's one recommended which does have streaming video output for use on FPV etc then fine - a bit of future proofing is a good thing right! Hell, I may even be quad racing with Jem one day Shocked
Criteria:
1) Maximum £75 budget.
2) Lightweight and streamlined EG: Mobius style preferred to Go Pro style.
3) Easier to use /monitor /control than the old keyfob /chewing gum style jobbies
4) PC / Android compatible where /if applicable.
Seems to be a large selection of variants from the King, but without qualified recommendations, I don't want to make a mistake. So recommendations please from you video guys.

Can't go wrong with a mobius there Tim, just like what Barnes says. Dead easy to use, and nice footage too. Obviously not quite as good as a gopro, but then the gopro is a couple of hundred squids...

I'd hold on and get the new runcam 2
60fps and people are saying pretty much no lag on live Fpv feed

Just had a look at that one Oggy, looks good. I'm liking the sound of 120fps at 720p resolution. should be great for slowing down footage taken outside in bright conditions!
