    Evening All

    I have setup my FPV - AVL58, ISOD mini, FPV hub. I see the isod information on the monitor but no video.

    Checked the GoPro and it was powered off. Turned the main power on the Phantom off and then on again and it powers the GoPro on but then after a while it the GoPro powers off.

    I've checked the cabling and all seems ok. I did change the cable from the gimble to the GoPro last night as could see a small tear appearing.

    Any suggestions greatly welcomed.

    Thanks
    Matt

    Re: AW: GoPro Powers Off

    Does it poweroff while recording or while running in standby?
    In first case you should try erasing the storage card by using the GoPro menu.

    I'll try formatting the card I took it straight out my dashcam.

    That said though it is just in standby mode.

    Consult your Gopro manual. There's a feature that will automatically turn off your camera if it is inactive (no pictures or video being taken or no buttons pushed) for X seconds. It's called "Manual Power Off" in the Set Up Menu. You need to set it to "Manual" to keep that from happening.
