You’ll be recording top quality audio and video, and you can instantly share everything right from your iPhone. It’s the perfect video camera for the pilot on the go.

    Pros

    None.

    Cons

    It takes way too much effort to align the lens and hope that it stays aligned. I tried using it this weekend, and the lens position would change by a minute amount but just enough to crop out a noticeable portion of the video during flight.

    Moreover, the iPhone app apparently is not as smart as the regular camera app, because you can only video with the audio buttons facing the ground; if you try to video with the audio buttons facing up (which would be the case if you mount the camera overhead), the NCamm app records video upside down.

    General Comments

    Overall, this product is a hassle. For over $100, I expected something to just work. It is unfortunate that I finally got to try this product out several months after I bought it. Otherwise, I would have tried to return it. I would think about buying it if it cost $20, but it is definitely, positively NOT worth over $100. Buy the regular NCamm if you wish, but skip this product in my opinion. If you're stubborn and want to try it anyways, I recommend trying to set up the lens the night before your flight.

    Awesome Product
    Pros

    Very affordable solution for a flight cam.

    The milled aluminum is high-quality and indestructible. Not sure what the other reviewer was referring to as flimsy plastic, there is no plastic on this device.

    The audio quality is also excellent there is no static at all.

    Cons

    It takes a second or two to align the wide-angle lens but it is worth the effort. It would be nice if there was a simple prop filter available with out the wide-angle.

    General Comments

    This is a great product that really makes a difference in the cockpit. I have had Contour's and GoPros and I always forgot to charge the batteries or ran out of time to edit the videos. I always have my iPhone so now I can shoot video, edit, and post all from my phone.

    I think most of the negative reviews come from reviewers that are not familiar with the wide-angle lens, what its advantages are, and how to align it.

    Pros

    Works to remove propeller distortion

    Cons

    Does not fit well and there are edges in the camera that is blocked. Also, the structure is not as secure around the camera and if we tighten too much, the plastic construct appears like it is giving way.

    Pros

    Audio harness works exactly as advertised. Phone folder looks very strong. Should work with other phones besides current iPhone. Prop filter works very well. almost completely eliminated appearance of rolling shutter.

    Cons

    Quality of the lens is poor. Vignetting and edge distortion are moderate. The biggest problem is the degradation of video quality. No way to use filter without fish-eye lens. The lens used is a sub $5 part.


    Also, the RAM camera mount recommended by sporty's does not thread all the way into the iPhone adapter as the threads on the RAM mount are longer then the hole in the base of the holder. (Not nFlight's fault per se, just wanted to mention it)

    Really was hoping this was going to work out. Sadly, I'm going to be returning this unit.

    I think the GoPro kit would probably give much better results and is probably a solid package. I bought this package instead because I wanted to use it with the nFlightcam iphone app. The app is also very disappointing. (Although could very well get better over time). I release it's a separate product. I only mention it in case someone else was looking at purchasing this kit specifically for use with the app as I was.

    General Comments

    Audio cable works very well. Would purchase that separately instead of full kit. GoPro option would have been a better choice.

    Cons

    iPhone App is not available in iTunes
    Lens is diffucult to fit in order to get a good image

    General Comments

    What can I say, I am an early adopter. But basically not having the iPhone app available when the hardware goes for sale is strange.

    I have yet to get a good image with the iPhone camera app, the image looks like seeing through a keyhole. I might change with the Nflightcam iPhone app, but then again where is it !

    I might end up returning it. It is just too much adjustment to get this to work properly.

    At this point I cannot recommend this product. At least wait for the app to come out and see what images the users are getting.

    Sporty's Response

    Thanks for the comments. Make sure you are using video mode with the iPhone's camera app--you will see that "keyhole effect" in still photo mode, but it should be gone in video mode.

    Also, the app is now available: http://www.sportys.com/PilotShop/product/19047
