Great scenery caught by RC plane with on-board video system

This is one of the coolest things I've seen. There's not only a camera mounted on top of the RC plane ["RC-EYE"], but the camera also swivels in 360 degrees, allowing the hobbyist to shoot footage from any desired horizontal angle of view. For example: you could shoot footage from the back of the RC plane [180 degrees] at the same time you're flying the plane. Coolness :-) I wonder how difficult it is to do both at the same time [rotating the camera while flying the plane]

I don't know about the "legalities" of using such toy [this gizmo obviously allows you to use it as a "spying" tool] but it must be a very cool thing to play with.

There's no mention about whether audio can be captured [that would close the cycle of coolness!]. I guess it depends on the type of camera used and whether it has an on-board audio capture system such as with most of today's digital cameras.
