I just got mine so will test this weekend and report back
I have an Aiptek Action-HD 1080p with AV IN in the mail that I found on ebay for $60, hopefully it records static and if it does I will be super happy .
I need to get the FPV-Japan, I'm sick of dealing with the laptop for everything. I like that it has the screen there too for people that wander over.

I've been very happy thus far with the carbonbirds FPV black box recorder. Seems very similar in both appearance and function to the Japan FPV one, but comes with a spare battery and is slightly cheaper.
