What camera did you use for that? Do you have a link?
It's an E-Flite EFC-721: http://www.horizonhobby.com/efc%E2%84%A ... ra-efla801 (mine was about £30 from eBay). I was quite impressed with it too, although as it's meant to be carried underneath a quadcopter I did have to flip all the footage 180 degrees after uploading...

Because although it's hilarious, it's basically useless in competition; that's the only fight it's ever won. I've got another spinner in the works which should be more manageable and competitive, which will be taking Bad Idea's place on the team. I'll have Bad Idea out for the smaller events and the like, but it's not really suitable for an AWS team :L

Main event will take longer as between my computer crying and then turning off halfway through the processing it should be up tomorrow. I wanted to do something fancier but don't have the time between other projects to finish it off.

Thanks Alex! Sorry for bugging you!

It actually looks really good despite the ghetto-ness of the recording setup :D
