im eyeing the pmw200 to replace my ex1, but not sure if its significant enough of an upgrade. you might want to look into the black magic cinema camera. has a form factor that i think will really fit helicams nicely. wider lenses are a bit rarer for it, but the tokina 11-16 or the sigma 8-16 should get you as wide as your heart desires. and it can record uncompressed at 2.5K or prores, or dnxhd, all onboard, no external recorder, for $3000. should be shipping this month, but rumors are large backorders

I'm struggling the decision on what camera to put on RC helicopter for aerials. In your opinion is codec more important than field of view.
You should check on how legal your RC helicopter is, the FAA is currently looking at aerial work using these. Here are some associated documents
