Michael Lank  |  Jan 05, 2008

Strengths:
Dedicated design for models. Lightweight. Looks good. Easy to use.
Weaknesses:
Quality of videos/photos, especially in low light. Problems with the FlyCamOne2 switching itself off in the middle of recordings, this problem is much worse in cold weather - crucial given the wind chill factor outside a flying model! FlyCamOne2 is 'fussy' about choice of SD cards. Lack of support from ACME (manufacturer) in resolving problems. Problems with downloading firmware updates from website.
Overall:
The FlyCamOne2 looks really good, but does not work as well as it looks. If ACME resolve the problems it will be a good product, until then look elsewhere or use an old mobile phone with video capability for your aerial photography. . .
