    You are welcome. Just be aware that since I wrote this, they have released a major update for the GoPro and I haven't had the time to update my sticky.

    There is a good thread somewhere on the update, but I don't have the link handy. I'll post it in here tomorrow, or maybe someone else can post it sooner.

    In the meantime, the last page or so of this thread talks a little bit about the changes.

    Okay, maybe this is a dumb question, especially for here, but can you turn off sound on the GP?

    In gopro processing you can unclick it, also in something like adobe just delete the audio track.

    So is anyone using a polarized filer for footage? Or only the ND filters? Any recommended sources for a circular polarized filter for the GoPro?

    Do you remember what this was and what to alter to?

    Thanks in advance.


    Keep flying safe everyone:)

    I love polarizers. just be aware that turning it either increases or decreases polarization and that polarization is greatest when pointed 90 degrees from the sun, so uneven skies can happen if shooting when the sun is low. It changes footage dramatically but be aware of its properties like turning the filter to decrease/increase affect and uneven polarization when shooting video. Just do your research and they are a valuable item in your tool box

    I am using a GoPro Hero 4 Black. I can record fine but it appears to only record to the iphone or ipad and not to the SD card. Is it possible to record to both the sd card on the gopro and the iphone or ipad?

    Absolutely yes, you can record to both your GoPros SD card & your iPhone at the same time.....SD card gives you much better quality

    Once you have a good SD card in your GoPro and you hit the record button on the solo or solex app it will start recording to your Gopro's SD card.
    Make sure you are using a recommend SD card.
    Also try using your Gopro to record stuff by itself (not on drone) to ensure the SD card is working properly.
    Eg: I took this picture with my GoPro attached to a selfie stick today:

    Thank you. Great Goggles. Which manufacturer? Were they easy to hook up?

    You're welcome......please keep me posted on your recording issue.

    The goggles come from a drone kit:

    Can anyone tell me if they put the new firmware on the gopro?

    I am getting an update notification and want to see if anyone else has done it and that it is still working.

    It's personal preference. Try it if you don't like it you can always downgrade.

    Only things you lose are the auto turn of the solo when you power it up. But you do get quite a lot upgrades.

    Google differences between what ever version of software you have and then version 5.

    (Version 3 was the last version that gave automatic turn on of the GoPro when solo powers up)

    I am on 5 I believe because I do no get gopro power up.
    I just got the update this week, and with the other update fiasco I am wary.

    I'll check the version when I get home.

    Any version above 3 the solo will not auto power on, TBHWY, I would stick with 5 far more control over the GoPro just have to turn it on by hand. No biggy.
