PS: I Just did a test record with the #11 and worked fine.
1/Powered up.
2/Pressed the shutter button until the Yellow LED flashed 3 times and went out.
3/Scanned around the workshop/shed for 30 seconds.
4/ Pressed Shutter button again to stop recording (3 flashes again) and it shut down.
5/RESULT: Perfect it recorded.

However the problem is out in the bright sunlight at the field it's very hard to confirm that these flashes are actually happened and more than once I've ran through the sequence a couple a of times because unsure if recording, only to possibly shut it off when it WAS recording!!
At least with the Flashing record LED you know for sure it's there is gunna be a VIDEO
Yep, it's a V1. You might try drilling out the hole over the LED a tiny bit get a better angle into the LED. I used to shield the hole with my hand and/or body to better see the LED as well when in bright sun.
