Hey Toby

So how does it work if you go outside of the 2000' limit, how does it find you again when you come in closer or say you get blocked by waves, will it find you again?

Now that's a funny video 😁

Do you also have the Optix Cam ?

Would be interesting to know how close you can get with the tag to the base...
With SS2 the base goes up the closer you get...so sometimes I cut myself being too close...
I have the Optix 65.

Once you get within about 15 feet, it starts acting funny, pointing high and to the side. Within 10 feet, and it points down.

phpBB [video]
Are you happy with it ?
It doesn't look 4K at all and the vibration is a bit annoying haha
I hope we didn't all wait 2yrs for some peace a shit camera !

Can you adjust the follow speed and position? Looks like the rider is riding out of the frame rather than into it.
Pretty cool to have some video though.

I'm guessing the vibrations are coming from being buffered by the wind. Still waiting for my email. Ordered late November 2015. It's been a long wait. The footage won't be perfect, but looks like it will be good enough. Better than no footage at all.

well its now the last day of October. Don't see any email yet. Did you mean October 2018 ? That would only be one more year longer than the 2 we've waited already

I wonder too Clint. When did you order?
Me September 2015. And my shipping is soon.
So expect yours in a few weeks.
