I just bought a Rylo. Have not gotten it yet but seems to be sweet. I have a go pro 6 and cannot stand it. It never works. either the battery is not charged on the remote or it switches mode mid kiting session.
And the software is not intuitive.
That is odd, and amazing we can have so opposite experiences
I have the GoPro 6 and it works splendid
The remote is great, and saves you loads of "going upwind only" memory space and time.
Simple and easy and just works, and still got all the advanced options you (I) need to tweak it max
I have experienced two things though, but once you know this, no problem:
The remote CAN get into a lock up state - never when using it, but have seen it two times when charging, and it seems DEAD, not even light in the led when trying to charge.
There is a 10 second reset NOT described in the manual, and voila it works again - hold the power/mode button for 10 seconds (google it), and charge it again.
The other thing is an "SD error" I have seen a couple of times.
I thought - bugger, should I go back an reinsert the memory card? (helps on all other cams, as it is an often seen error with the micro SD cards), but found out I could just turn off the camera (and the remote) via the remote, and when powering up via the remote, the SD error is gone.
So could be done on the water when riding - sweet
That is another great thing, if you do a long downwinder in waves, then before the long upwind legs you can simply shut down the camera and remote to save power.
One battery last a bit more than one hour typically though, when powered full time, so quite good.
The 4 K gives an incredible resolution for still pics, sweet.
It is simple, small, stable and tough and got all the features needed (and more than that ususally ha haa), and video quality is amazing.
Love this little thing, combined with a Quark digital gimbal (lets see how long it lasts) it is priceless.
PS: What software are you talking about??? I just empty my SD card to the pc directly, fast and no software needed.
