Or why not one with an on board camera that you can record onto a micro SD card.

There all over the internet, and your find them for sale on Ebay, you can even buy spare parts which are also cheap.

Any plans to modify your one bitfogav?

Surely you can incorporate a microcontroller based circuit in there somewhere :)

I could do actually Brad :wink: the one I have has got a camera, but you need to press a button on the quadcopter before flight to start the recording, maybe I can find a way of doing it with a microcontroller instead and a bit of reverse engineering of the 2.4ghz radio. :wink:

You can get the main control board for £10 on ebay which incorporates the 6 Axis system.

Now you're talking!

Have you got yourself a spectrum analyser?

We have some great HP ones at work (can't remember the model number) but they were made in 1999 and have a beautiful grey scale LCD screen :)

Its a good technology basically but shouldn't be made with cheap material because that is a bother.
Taking care of overall quality can take the thing to the next level,I have fly it and its fun but what you have highlighted is a bother also.
