Many of us have been trying various methods of videoing our flying. Some have attached cameras to a cap, others to a kite.
I found these, and gave us an early Christmas present.

I got them here.

I understand that they are available at REI, but have not checked that out.

We went to the park yesterday and gave them a try. This was our first try. I neglected to raise my head high enough when the kites were high in the sky. Easy to correct. Due to the preset camera resolution, the files are very large, but can be converted to other formats and made smaller. When that is done, the picture is not as crisp, but still very good. Here is a clip of our first try. This clip is at the higher resoulution, so I made it only 30 seconds.

Just for info:

You can find these on EvilBay for less... (PS: The date stamp is revisable).

I have a set of these and they also work well for covert SPY assignments! Posted Image Posted Image

I got mine for $74.99 on sale last month.

On e-bay they want $29.00 for the $12 car charger. No deal

Always best to deal with a reputable dealer if you can.
