Re: Remo discontinued

So really then, it allows you to turn the camera off, take a picture and start & stop recording. It has a better range Yes but half its functions are unusable and it's twice the size. Is that right?

Re: Remo discontinued

It does everything the Remo does, has better range, and an LCD screen --- for the same price!  Plus if you get a newer Hero 4 or 5 you get all the designed functionallity. 

I call that a WIN-WIN scenario!
