    Does anyone have 2 cameras on board that are recording front and rear on your 550. I would think it would be pretty useful for editing. I almost have my 550 setup for 2 cameras. I am waiting for one more adapter that allows me to mount any point and shoot (small) with a tripod screw mount to be mounted to a go pro mount to be delivered. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00IQ7PRHU/ref=pe_385040_30332190_TE_dp_i1 I have a go pro on a Tarot gimbal upfront that is my fpv camera right now. I also have a dedicated fpv camera on order. I will post some photos when I get it setup.

    I think it's a great idea but won't the additional weight kill your flying time? For example, when I went from stock landing skids to the slightly more enhance landing skids.....I lost 3.5 minutes of flying time. Just a thought.

    I was getting around 9-10 minutes before the addition of a second camera with a 4s 6600 may battery. I don't know what I will get when I add the second camera. I will post the results. Here are some photos with my go pro on the Tarot gimbal on the front and the gopro housing on the rear.
