I just ordered an "808 Keychain Camera" from LinkDelight.com which I hope to place on the under carriage of my Double Horse 9101 heli.

If the camera is light enough, I may try to mount it on my S107. Maybe strip off the outer keychain housing to lighten it up will do the trick.

At $9.99 with free shipping, I thought it a good investment to accessorize my heli.

The keychain camera is a good buy.I use mine a lot on planes and bigger helis-was not that doable on the 107, however never stripped it down to attach-bought a Sanhuan spy heli small video frame but ok

Thank you for the link to your C-7 Review, you sure know how to keep busy John!

I was surprised to see that the balance bar on this heli is mounted below the "A" prop. Does this offer greater stability?

 

I enjoy your reviews and I will endeavor to make a purchase from your store.

Our daughter might like to have an S107 as she flies mine from time to time.

Think I can find her one in Pink?Smile

There's a few out there like that, I think SN did that too. The cameras have an identical battery to the s107, so you can insert the wiring for it into the battery feeds. Problem is it reduces flight time to about 4 minutes, if that. (too much weight and extra draw from the camera)

I have a Keychain camera as well. However, I like the function of being able to turn the camera on and off from the remote. Also I like being able to shot still shots. I always liked the idea of mixing a Heli with a camera. This one comes with a 2.4 Ghz transmitter so it does cost a little bit more. However, compared to model trains this stuff is relatively inexpensive. I did order one of these and I will post a review at a later time.
