You may have seen our featured episodes, they were filmed with the following
kept secret. Tried this Hawk Eye Firefly 6S 4k camera and i must say it deserves
some praise. Like all cameras it's got some merits and flaws, but for $96 this
4k FPV Sports camera kickass - sharper than a GoPro 4! JR connector included.
Weighing amazingly 65g, GIT2 with a 1.5 inches LCD viewing screen. The LCD
allows you to see what you are filming; at times you only get one chance on a
shot, and not seeing what you are filming, you may just miss that unique shot.
You will need to purchase a compatible JR connector for FPV (GoPro usb). See below
Mini, Mobius and Keychain #16 ActionCam light weight, simplicity, no frails, but a
great camera that captures stunning HD video. Keychain #16
weighs only 28g, perfect for planes. JR connectors may not
be included, you will need one for FPV.
amk5000s 170 degrees wide angle, sports camera. Very sharp, see the aerial video

HD is a FPV camera born out of RC Fanatics, the classic slim design for better
aerodynamics, re-engineered with inputs from various RC pilots. This camera has
great potential, in fact, if you have not seen it in action, this is well
deserving a try. It is the Sharper Image Store version of the Mobius, with a
price tag of about $55. The manufacturer is attentive to every little detail,
from RF shielding to the final touches in packaging. We love this camera. JR
