A new digital camera Nikon Coolpix S9 (6.1 Mpixels CCD) has been installed on the QRO v2.1 and used as a video recorder.
The setup used for the video record was 640x480 (Clip TV 640) at 30 fps.

Weather conditions : Wind ( 15 km/h ), with Gusts at 20 km/h, temperature 8 °C.

There was windy conditions and it is interesting to observe in the video recorded
how the onboard QRO firmware was able to steer automatically the MAV during gusts.
In a future version of the QRO, I shall use an gyroscopic stabilisation of the digital camera.

Below, some photos from the on board video

BONUS: The QRO for the FMS simulator
