I just tested the updated Firefly 2 Microcam from Hawkeye. 2.5k and 1080 60 fps video. records to microcard, plus FPV output. I flew it on my Dancing wings mini eagle, lovely foamie that looks just like a buzzard when it's in the air. I've had it mobbed by gulls sometimes when flying it! Video and test video is here.

Camera is £34 Banggood link

It looks quite good. Equally- is that an affiliate link? If so you should probably divulge this for the sake of transparency.

Yes, it is an affiliate link, but I have given an honest review. It's a great little camera.

I bought one of these and thus far very happy with the quality. My pc wouldnt play the raw .mov files without stuttering but converting to mp4 worked.

Does anybody know of a free video converter?

The one i did the utube video will not let me do any more. Other free ones plaster a banner across the screen or dont work at all.

Failing that any suggestions to get .movs to work without stuttering on a PC (with very good video card!!!)

Any suggestions gratefully received

Cheers Dave

Google 'Freemake Video Converter', and 'Freemake Video Downloader' if you want to 'rip' YouTube videos.

Dave, Winff is a free video converter which will convert just about any videos format. It is a GUI for FFMPEG a command line interpreter that can do just about anything video related.

No adverts, watermarks or similar and is free. Only for Windows and Linux as far as I am aware.

Cheers GDB

No worries Cliff. It's a good camera but I think the price has gone up a bit since I reviewed it.  Yes, £46

I had a good afternoon up at LH the other day when the rain stopped and wind dropped for once. Got my Lidl lightweight flying pretty well, though still has a tendency to climb to much with more than 1/2 throttle.
