Will be interesting to see if this the generation where they get it right… I would pay that much, but have held off on previous models because of all of the reports of failures and terrible customer support. Stated specs seem good, but I guess (just as for the Garmin rear camera), the specs don’t tell the full story.
Am hoping that @GPLama will be testing in of these soon…?
I have the original fly12, and only now am I experiencing battery life problems (going to attempt to replace). Bar the weight, I have been happy with it’s performance. If I botch the battery replacement, I’ll be in the market for the sport!
I watched your video on this and it seems like this is a notable improvement on previous models. I’m tempted to pull the trigger on this as a replacement for the original fly12 that I have that has had some reliability problems.
I’m primarily interested in this as a ‘safety camera’, so I’m willing to put up with hassles as an action cam. With the image stabilization and higher res + charging while in use I am very tempted by this.
Did you run into any problems with it not recording when it was supposed to? My original fly 12 did that on my at least once, so I have difficulty trusting that it is actually recording all the time.
I’ve been playing with one the last few days. The software isn’t good, no wireless data transfer, and using a 360 camera with the ability to lock the horizon is much better for action camera footage but if your goal is to have a dashcam for your bike it seems to do a great job at that. License plates are reflective though so you can’t always read them even though the camera is doing a good job capturing them.
There’s literally no competitor so if you feel safer recording everything, this is your option.
