bdseidler: Thx for this post. I just have one question and I hope u have the answer. Looking at the side of the gopro with the plug. There are 5 wire pins in the female receptor. From top to bottom what 2 do I need to connect to for fpv video?. My plug looks different than yours and configured differently. Thx
Vance Walsh: has anyone done this AND powered the gopro through the same cable (using a 5v BEC or other 5v source from your quad batteries?)
Rosario W: I see this is a older video and you probably already know this but all of the mods like this use a 1k resistor from pin 7 to ground to kick the camera into video out mode? did yours work without it? I haven't tried the mod yet but getting ready too-just wondering Thanks!
kaoxide: How is the video quality after modding? How much latency is there on the fpv?
infocushdcanada: Nice job, you should put a 52mm adapter, so you may use 52mm filters. They can be purchased at world wide web - infocushd - com
sdroidx: thank you that was a great help
truthseekers666: Can you help me, when doing FPV with hero3, if you are in Timelapse Photo mode ie taking photos 1 second, 2 second, 5 second etc... does the image blank on video out when a picture is taken? many thanks.
TheBEDUIN18: Thank you, man! Can you show me the schematic diagram of using the soldering point of a casual miniUSB type B socket to be used as a replacement for GoPro Combo Cable instead of an original one? Where is every pin of miniUSB2.0 type B socket is used for in this piece of equipment goes??? GRATEFUL IN ADVANCE!!!
Masayoshi Noguchi: I am Japanese.
I was that this movie is consulted.
And it modified.
Jason Anderson: Right on, glad it helped! Subscribe to my channel to get more updates as I am always producing new videos!
Alexandre Schmidt: Man, you really helped me out! Just did your hack and it works very, very well! Thank you so much for taking the time to produce and post this video!
Andriy Lehtarov: Hey! I'm Brandon.I did -10 lbs past one week.Go to hddiet.gs\#IDbv
Jason Anderson: yes, I believe it's a common ground.
Matthew Hyde: if i add a 5v power supply to charge the gopro can it be grounded to the same point as the video ground?
Jason Anderson: This mod only works with the GoPro Hero 3 cameras where they output video using the special 10-pin USB cable. Sounds like the Sony cam only does HDMI which is no good for FPV.
T.Zvicevicius: Does the same trick works with Sony action cam hdr-as10? It comes with hdmi-out only..
Leonardo Cunha: After this hack, can you record and use as FPV at the same time? thanks!
vkirbys: I have uploaded a video that takes you step by step how to actually configure the Hero 3 to work with this kind of cable. Search youtube for "GoPro Hero 3 FPV and Video Out setup using Composite cable" or look for videos from vkirbys
SuperBlindpilot: Hi Jason. Thanks for the vid, I did your mod ages ago and it works great!
I want to connect 5v power but not sure where to solder it...
at 1:35 in your vid it goes: Audio-Video-blank-blank-blank.
Where does 5v vcc go? is it A-V-blank-blank-5v?
UKVIT: My variant of cable more lighter and simle to soldering.
But i did make external power connector for housing box without modification.
