Can the Fly6 detect the difference between a USB charger and a USB host?
If it can, then could the firmware be re-jigged to automatically power on when plugged into a 5V supply via USB? (If plugged into a USB host, then obviously, it should behave as it does now: USB storage).
So the moment it receives power on the USB port, it'd wait a moment to see if it gets assigned an ID from the host, then proceeds to switch to ON mode after a timeout. This leaves a problem of how to properly prevent water ingress in the USB port, but this is a separate issue.

We are designing solution for the front that will be available next year. Best thing to do is to subscribe on our website for updates.
I have a home brewed integrated lighting system on my bike.
A Fly6 with an input such as voltage free contact or logic level (eg optocoupler + resistor) would be nice. I'm not sure if your USB port could be rigged up to accept such an input without compromising functionality.
P.S. If a fly6 with front facing camera head was available, I'd buy it.
