Where can I buy FPV and Aerial Photography camera's?

In our opinion the best and safest place to buy action camera's used for FPV (First Person Flight) or aerial photography is from Amazon. As FPV flight is a fairly niche market you will find many small un-secured websites selling first person flight equipment. With Amazon there is world wide trust and very secure systems to ensure you get what you have paid for.

What kind of camera's work for FPV?


There are so many different options for what Camera's to use for FPV Flight. From the fairly expensive GoPro's to the inexpensive, light, yet very capable Mobius action camera. Which model you choose will depend on what you are using it for. If you need a lighter camera you would probably choose the Mobius over the GoPro, however GoPro's quality is still just a little bit better than Mobius. Below I will list and show pictures of some very capable FPV and aerial photography camera all in different price ranges.

List of great FPV and aerial photography action camera's

The GoPro Hero 4 for FPV use

The GoPro Hero 4 for FPV use
This being one of the more expensive choices, it has great quality. This product is on the heavier side and would require a fairly big RC model for sufficient use. If you're looking for a cheaper alternative but like the GoPro name check out the GoPro HERO.

The SJCAM SJ4000 for FPV use

The SJCAM SJ4000 for FPV use

The SJCAM SJ4000 is a cheaper version of a GoPro that you can still get a waterproof case for as well as still having a display screen to see what you are recording. This model is again a little on the heavier side and requires a bigger more powerful RC model to provide sufficient lift for the FPV platform. 


The Mobius Action Cam for FPV use

The Mobius Action Cam for FPV use

The Mobius Action cam is a great camera to use for first person flight. It weighs in at just 1.37 oz so just about any RC aircraft can equip this cam. It has great quality picture with a nice wide angle lense. The Mobius is also lucky enough to be the one of the cheapest first person flight camera's on the market while not giving an inch on quality. This is our recommended model due to its efficiency and price.
