From what I read, the original standard definition version that was released in 2010 became very popular. This new version which will be out soon, does HD. It'll be around $300.

Basically you control it with either an iPad/iPhone or an Android based device while the video is being streamed in 720 30p. I wonder if the bit rate can be tampered with in case it's low. Their are apps for the iPhone and Android phones that increase the bit rates of the phone's video abilities so it's a possibility. Yes, if you go too high, streaming might be an issue. We'll see. It would be nice if they were to release an app for the Sony PSVITA. You'd be able to steer with the thumb sticks.

Here's a hands on video of the older model which streams in SD at 15 frames per second unlike the yet to be released model streaming in 720 30p. The newer one also does more tricks.

As far as I can tell you cannot record the live video stream?

You just need third party software for the older one. For the new one, it's built into the software. Check the first YouTube video I provided.
