This is a rundown of the specs, features and expert reviews of the Hawkeye Firefly Q6 action keychain camera.

Summary

A great little camera with tons of settings and an info screen to control it all, compared to the Mobius camera it has a bit more going on with it. You can connect it to multiple devices like a larger battery or video out to help with RC/FPV use but it's let down by smaller field of view and no waterproof housing.

Mounting and Form

The Hawkeye Firefly Q6 does not come with any mount options. It is flat and small, so you still have some mounting options which we go through below. It seems the camera has been made specifically to stick, attach or strap to drones, fpv and remote control devices. It is light and small so that helps with mounting it to something with just velcro or a strap but it is let down by its lack of other mounting options.
