Hi Paul,

That's funny!

I just bought a Flycam One. A tiny camera of 8 x 4 x 1.4 cm and only 37 Gr. This camera has color and sound and costs € 69.99

Hi Paul,

Received my FlyCamOne2 this morning. Great fun, can't wait to try it on my tank and vehicles.

Sound seems ok. Loads of different things it can do too. Was a bit more than yours at £56.00 but came with a 2gb card.

See you soon, Antony

Hi All,

Thanks for the vote of confidence Ant, however it didn't turn out as well as expected :? , it would of helped if I had remembered to focus the camera on distance items and not close to ones :oops: .

For what it is, this is the view from divers perspective in a tiger 1, chasseing a Shaman through the Arden.

Hi Ant,

Looking good mate, it's amazing what you can do with those fly cams, and it brings the models to life 8) :D .

Is that a new running ground you have found for us at Frodsham manor :shock: , or have Sutton hall turned over one of there fairways? :lol:

Paul :wink: .

Hi Paul,

Sorry mate, it's our old veg garden that was overgrown and will shortly be grassed over. I thought I'd take advantage and use it before I put the seeds down. As you can see from the way the Panther and Opel run I need to rake it a bit more to try and level it. It'll be a lot easier to keep sorted once it's grass :D

Thanks Ant
