If you ever wanted a small personal 720 line video recorder with a single button on/record cabled trigger ; or an FPV recorder that records right thru static without stopping ; or an FPV recorder for SDHC cards that can record MPEG4 .avi files with great quality at a reasonable price ; one that comes standard with a 2nd Lithium battery standard - Has a built in colour 2.5" TFT LCD screen - Records video and ground station audio - Then the CARBONBird® Black-Box FPV Flight recorder is worth a look - Based at your Ground Station it records those memorable flights of your FPV Scarab or FPV aeroplane or any onboard FPV arriving at the ground station - without any drama.
You may be thinking you dont need a ground station recorder because you are recording live on the aircraft - well consider this - if your aircraft goes down - even in close 100-200 or 300m LOS line-of-sight you may never find the aircraft (long grass - bushes or trees) or the GoPro and the HD Vision (or other expensive camera onboard) because you really need to get the last frame shots for a landmark (from the black Box recorder) or to read the GPS co-ordinates fom an OSD - trust me - ground station recorder will pay for itself many times over!

USA multicopter Flyers be aware - FAA D.O.T USA published an AC 91-57 (Advisory Circular) on June 9 1981 to keep flyers of models away from populated areas (people) and minimise hazard to persons and property on the ground - the intention is conveyed by this AC - It is titled Model aircraft operating Standards - Para 3. a) to e).
Clearly stated are the 400ft height limit and not closer than 3nm from an airport and the avoidance of populated areas and parks.
Once used commercially a model in the USA becomes a U.A.S and pilots should read this document regarding the use of multicopters for Comm Ops
