Someone posted that when the camera is set to manual record it won't start recording when using the Beacon.I'm pretty sure you can turn the camera off and on. In the app there's a setting for automatic filming. With that on any time it's in the air it's recording. With it off you have to tell it through the app to start and stop, red button at the bottom.
And there is no record button on Beacon, have not verified this but kind of sucks.
