  • The resolution on the Insta 360 is definately better than the Go Pro and cheaper too. Thank you for a great review.

  • Appreciate this comparison Mic! I’m leaning towards the X3.
    One question: when riding an EUC, do you recommend the basic 70cm selfie stick or the longer 114cm one? Thanks
