LOW QUALITY IMAGE, BUT CHEAP.
Strengths: very simple to use.
Weaknesses: Low quality image. Poor auto contrast.
Overall: A good diversion for the price but the low quality soon starts to take the shine off it.

BUILT TO A PRICE. RUBBISH QUALITY.
Strengths: Its light. Quality of video that you do get is good.
Weaknesses: Cuts out if it gets cold. The website is poor. Doesnt like change of lighting conditions. Poor low light capability. If you see the screen then its upside down. The lens should have rotated from the other direction.
Overall: I sold mine after two weeks. I thought it needed some problems sorting out. The manuafacturers are no too helpfull either.

NOT READY FOR MARKET
Strengths: Case design Easy mounting, easy to use on a computer
Weaknesses: Does not perform very well in 0C chill. May be components. Color flashed frames at times. Operating Voltage set to high.
Overall: Looked great with some nice features. Engineering went half way and it was pushed off to market with lots of bugs.

GREAT IDEA, BADLY EXECUTED
Strengths: Dedicated design for models. Lightweight. Looks good. Easy to use. Four-second time-lapse photography capability.
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.
