Adding memory to an endoscope Answered

I need to add some memory to an endoscope (http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/2MP-Mini-USB-Digital-Microscope-Endoscope-Otoscope-LED-/280658163556?pt=UK_BOI_Medical_Lab_Equipment_Lab_Equipment_ET&hash=item415887b764)
I want to be able to fly this on a r/c helicopter, but I need to able to take videos and pictures. I can't have it wireless, and it needs to be affordable (£30 or less I'll give a little lee way through) just ask if you need any more infomation.
Thanks

Well yes I see your point of it being a strange thing to fly, but the other option is a web-cam but they are usually quite heavy and are too bulky. What do you mean by lenses am I going to fit?

This is just a small webcam. It needs a computer with a USB host to talk to it to control it. Its also a very short focus optic - you won't get an image from it more than a few inches away I suspect.

oh okay thanks, but I've found this (http://www.misumi.com.tw/iframe/35063.html)
I think the quality is good (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B7-bHQrbAA0) but I can't find anywhere which sells them.

It'll have to have a computer to read the USB signal and control the camera.

What lenses are you going to fit, because a microscope is a funny thing to fly on a helicopter....
