Surely you can use your powers to scam one.

This one is much brighter. Coming into winter would be good for everyone. 

Maybe start a shop on here. Take a cut.

There has never been a fly 10. 

Unless China was making them

Oops, the old one was a fly 12 as well??  Regardless, I think the new version is cheaper.....

I'm looking for a set... Roxii what Peter said about a shop / affiliate scheme could be a good plan... I'm sure we'd all be happy to buy through a link to get you some $$...

is Willie's website up and running? Last I read (a while back) there were issues, but I might have missed it being sorted. My Fly6 (vers2) just died, so I'm on the lookout.

Hey Willie,

I'm looking at these in the next couple of weeks, would happily spend my money with a trannie if you can do them and ship to Vic?

Well I got the new fly 6 a month ago and still haven't managed to get it to work.  It will record short videos, but 10secs takes up 16GB.  When you try and take a longer video, the device beeps and I end up with a file that's 0kB.  The card is a HD micro 16GB, so I followed their specs.  If the card ran out of size, I would've expected it to run over existing footage right?

I have the new one and it's crap compared to the 2nd edition.

1. The mount onto the seat posts isn't as good.

2. I have times when it records and others when it doesn't.  Usually just turning it off and back on fixes

3. It has another totally different power cable for charging.  (this is a pain as everything else uses a mini USB)

The only good thing is a long battery life.

I suggest getting and second edition not the latest.

1. Agree - but they are coming out with a seat rail mount

2. I haven't had that issue yet (Note: there are firmware updates available, is yours up to date?)

3. - USB-C - IE. where all new phones are going, I am glad they have joined the future, this was a BIG selling point for me.

I have the 2nd revision, was tempted to get this new one but all the bad reviews really put me off. It looks like it wasn't ready or something?

If anyone wants the first version mine is up for grabs. 

Is the recording part still working fine?  Some of the guys I know with them seem to have an issue with the lights, but it still records fine?  I don't know what the mounting is like for these, will it go around a huge TT seat tube, say with some prodigious use of zip ties and/or Velcro?

How much you want for it?

Got the fly6 working yesterday - had to format the sd card via the phone app. I had followed the instructions for the computer, but it didn't work...
