    Yes, I've just bought one which I plan to use as a mini-cam to film what my DE gimbal is doing during flight.
    I researched it a lot on rcgroups.com where there is a whole thread dedicated to it http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1971523 and the OP on that thread has provided a whole stack of info including manual, firware resources etc.
    There is some new firmware for it which has improved the quality recently. It's not gopro quality and it's arguably not vision quality either. It is only 50g though and. like you say, does have audio if you really want to hear those props!
    One thing though is you will need to buy the special video out cable if you want to use it for FPV or playback on a device as you can't use a standard mini usb. I think I read one of the pins is crossed to make it recognise the connection. Mine came with it but most don't.
