    What DVR can you recommend?

    I am in the market for a DVR for my ground station.
    What is the best bang for my bucks?
    Any recommendations?

    Thanks!

    I like the FPV-Japan and others use the RMRC version of that, which I believe is cheaper.

    It's generally reliable after installing the patched firmware. Power on, hit record and not worry. I like that.

    I use the cheap D1 dvr from Hobby king. The picture quality is not the best, but I can read the GPS coordinates if the quad goes down.

    I have the same thing - i like it because it records as soon as it receivs power so you simply forget about it. However it sucks for me as it often doesn't record. I only have it there in case the quad goes down and i have footage to help recover. I checked out my recordings the other day and found that about 50% of the flights were missing with no rhyme or reason as to which. I Need to find something more reliable.

    It also depends on the camera quality, weather quality.
    I just looked at two of mine and my chasing clouds vid is not near the res olution as this one.

    FPV-japan on a great day:
