I just received a Fly6 as a gift and love it so far, but after 3 rides and 2 bikes I have a couple notes to share.
1. It would be great to have a seat mount, possibly a horizontal mount, or frame mount. I have issues with the under seat bag moving camera around while riding and blocking camera lense.
2. I did a 4 hour ride and the battery was down to one LED when I turned off. I do centuries 6-9 hrs and double centuries that can last 16hrs or more which the battery will die way before finishing. Have you looked at a larger capacity battery option or an external pack option(better) that would only be used for longer rides? Do you already know of any 3rd party external packs/chargers that you know are compatible?
1. We mount it to the seat post as it provides a very stable location for the footage to be taken. Our tests in other locations don't deliver the same smooth results making the footage in some instances very hard to watch and useless for capture information. We are hoping to deliver different mounting solutions in the future once we have tested them but for now we only have the seat post mount. If you google search "Franken Fly6" you can see other peoples hack mounts but they are not endorsed (& often for paniers)
Can i mount it upside down (would fit better on my reverse curve tail fin on my velomobile) ?
