    Just the worst thing I’ve ever purchased the 360Fly is way to early to market and have the customers BETA testing it for them. The app is not only clunky (if you can get it to work) because it crashes every 2 or 3 seconds not matter what you do. The support responses I received were something I would expect from a toddler, “Have you turned it off and back on” yeah only a 100 times after trying to get my $1000 investment to work! The very few times it worked I could never get a level image (the camera only points up on mounts so to see level your nearly pointing your phone at the ground. I was really hoping this 360Fly cam was going to be good but it just isn’t… 1 out 5 stars
