Ummm... you know you can buy these for less than $20 on ebay with free shipping from China, right?? There are several different kinds; some will fit inside a pack of chewing gum, some are like car key fobs, and some are a little weird shaped.$299 bucks is just looking for a sucker! :y::shock::jaw::eyepop:

You're totally right on the Astrovision and Oracle-- overpriced and outdated dinosaurs with VERY poor performance, no sound, and the software drivers are SO out of date they won't even run on a lot of computers nowdays...

Here's some links for you to check out... Good luck! OL JR

Hello

I'm looking for a rocket that can take up a 22g camera strapped to its side. It's this one:

The less building the better I'm not interested in the Oracle or Astrovision because their cameras don't perform so well

Thanks!

Very cool camera you got, just a little pricey. If you can't return it, I would suggest buying and flying one of the cheaper ones the guys have recommended here. That way, if you plant it, you are only out a few bucks. I am a big fan of the "gum cameras" because their shape allows them to fly in very skinny, high performance LPR models. Here it is on a C6-5... The chute tangled a bit on the way down.
