    Hi,
    When installing my GoPro Hero 3 on the Tarot Gimbal, the instructions specify I should use the USB cable that is already mounted on the X8+ chassis to acquire the GoPro video. My problem is that the cable is not long enough to reach the GoPro. I tried tugging at it lightly, to no avail. It's stuck in the housing.
    Instead, I used the USB cable provided with the Liveview FPV Kit and connected directly to the video transmitter module.
    Am I missing some fancy undocumented functionality by not using the X8+ USB cable?
    How do I get the X8+ USB cable to come ouot more?

    Thanks a million,
