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?
List of great FPV and aerial photography action camera's
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 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 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.
