    Great action cam
    Pros

    Easy to use, high quality and small camera

    Cons

    Battery life time isn't the greatest, but compared to the Contour 1080P it's actually very good. Turn off WiFi, and it'll last longer.

    General Comments

    I'm using this inside the cockpit while flying. So far I've only used it for one flight, and it works great! Very easy to use. High quality video.

    Great product after you work thru setup
    Pros

    Incredible resolution
    Amazingly small
    Multiple mounting options
    Good record time and battery life (when WiFI is off)
    Works nicely with iPhone or iPad app (when you finally get it configured)

    Cons

    Not the easiest initial setup
    Apps took a lot of patience to get working

    General Comments

    I had read comments about the Black Hero3 quitting or eating batteries, so I was a little cautious about buying one. I followed the instructions carefully, but had some initial difficulties getting the camera set up. After that, it worked fine until I tried to use the iPhone and iPad app to control it. I had a lot of trouble getting the apps running, but when I finally did, they found the camera without problems. Using an iPhone to set up the camera is particularly helpful, since there is no rangefinder and the settings are shown in a tiny LCD display.

    Now that I have everything working, it is a great video camera to film just about everything. When I get the suction cup mount, I will start recording my landings to be able to critique them :-)
