I popped a "Flip Video" camera in the plane tonight, and took it for a flight.

In this video, I have the camera on top of the plane pointing forward. The weird black lines are from the prop:

In this video, I have the camera strapped to the belly of the plane pointing straight down:

(The first 1:30 is of me taping the camera to the plane!)

Sweet! I have been thinking a lot lately about getting one. What would be a good starter plane?

RealFlight G4 (it's a computer simulator). It's a little spendy, but I guarantee it will save you money in the long run, and make flying more fun! If you can fly well in the sim, you can fly in real life. It's that good.

Nothing is more frustrating than being afraid to fly (and crash) the plane you just spent $200 on.

Once you get the hang of it, get an electric park flyer. There are quite a few good ones for beginners, but I would go with whatever the guy at the closest hobby store recommends (you'll be visiting him a lot!)

You'll lose sight of it before you lose signal. It comes with an FM radio system.
