Default New camera from Eflite, anyone tried it?

Horizon Hobby just came out with this:

Has anyone tried it out? Sample videos maybe? How about suggestions for better alternatives in the same price range?

Default Good and light, excellent little camera for the money

I picked up one of these at my LHS a few weeks ago and really like it. It takes 720p video and when attached to my planes/helis with velcro, seems almost immune to vibration. It's very light and can be controlled by a spare radio channel or manually via buttons.

One of the best features is the ability to angle the lens up to 45 degrees. This allows me to attach the camera to the belly of my planes but angle the lens slightly to avoid having to stare through the prop (venetian blind effect) or see the fuse.

This little camera was a good buy, well worth the 39 dollars I spent on it. Video is captured in MOV format and is easily uploaded to youtube. The cheap keychain camera I started with took horrible video and only in a proprietary AVI codec which I could not convert or upload.

Here's a vid I took with the camera velcroed to the fuse of my Carbon Z Yak:

It looks to be a repackaged "FlyCamOne 2", nice little unit too.
