    Hi Matt!
    Could you please let me know why you chose the Garmin VIRB as the action cam? I am in the process to select a good action cam for flying and I would very much appreciate your thoughts. Do the GoPros lack the possibility to link telemetry data? Also, does your Garmin action cam links up with the Garmin stuff onboard or is there some other method?
    Thank you very much for your thoughts,
    Kind regards,

      As far as I know the Garmin VIRB range is the only ones that offer the telemetry overlays. I think the very latest models (both cameras and avionics) do allow some kind of linking together. The camera does of course link to any iPhone or Android phone for full control.
