    I just received my TBS GoPro Link Board so that I can continue to use my GoPro with a broken USB port. I'm planning on just soldering the necessary wires to the board (just Vid and GND), but unfortunately nothing is labeled and I can't seem to find any documentation anywhere.

    Does anyone know the pinout on this board? I'm hoping to get this done ASAP for some flying this evening.

    I noticed afterwards that there's another board available (SmartFPV) which looks much better. It mounts to the GoPro flush - and the pins are labelled. I wish I would have found that before I ordered this TBS one. Oh well... hopefully I can get this one to work.

    Ok... couldn't wait for a reply. Maybe this will help someone else...

    I found a pin out for the GoPro's 30-pin connector and used a multimeter to determine which pins were for what.

    In this pic, the wire with the black mark is the Vid wire, and the other is the GND (obviously the middle one would be 5V then).

    I had sent an email to TBS support and got a reply from them. This is a better pic and confirms my findings.
