    Hey guys,
    I just got the GoPro 4 Black and the picture is not working on my Black Pearl Monitor. When I switch back to the Go Pro 3+ it works just fine. Any suggestions?

    Thanks,

    Robert

    Is the GoPro mounted on a Zenmuse Gimbal? There is a known issue with the H3-2D and H3-3D gimbals that have the 30 pin hero connection on them and the Hero 4. The updated H3-3D with the USB connection instead isn't affected, and draws the video out without issue.

    The 4 is not compatible with the 2D Gimbal.

    It's not the end of the world though. You can get a separate USB cable that will bypass the gimbal (and therefore won't charge the GoPro in flight), but can take the video out straight to your iOSD mini (if fitted), or video transmitter. This will then allow FPV with the H3-2D and Hero 4 :)
