Flytecam Is A Streamlined GoPro Challenger

Flytecam Is A Streamlined GoPro ChallengerWhether you need another option or not, Flytecam is a 1080p POV video camera that's looking to compete. It has specs that land it between GoPro's lowest and middle tier offerings, but it's supposed to be cheaper and doesn't require waterproof or shock resistant cases.

Flytecam has a rubberized body, is waterproof down to 3 meters, has an 120o lens and shoots 60fps for slow motion in 720p. It claims a three hour battery life and was developed alongside a ""flytemount"" that uses neodymium magnets and rubber teeth to secure the camera for mounting (see below).

Pre-order is starting soon and pricing will definitely be the decider in terms of whether or not this is a legitimate competitor (the base model GoPro is currently $200). But Flytecam's creators claim that they started the project ""because we couldn't find a product that we really wanted, (and most certainly couldn't afford)."" Okay, well then it better be cheap.
