and they were surprisingly cheap. The quality/range is impressive and the camera is reversible so it can be used as a rear-view mirror also. Just an idea.
I don't know about Maplin being cheap - I have a wireless camera system for use on R/C models - cost me £28 off ebay - EXACTLY the same in Maplin - £129.95!!!!
Having said that Palin sell a wider range of stuff and sometimes can be quite cheap - I bought a solar panel battery charger in a sale there for £50 that was over £100 anywhere else!
