Hi Ironspear, I've just returned from trip to Rarotonga in the Cooks. I got some good Karma material with no problems. By sticking to a flight time of no more that ten minutes and getting a solid GPS fix before take off, all went smoothly in an average island onshore breeze. The drone answered to all my movements. After about a ten minut flight the battery showed around 2 to 3 lights on the battery.
I know how tight it is to get the female slots on the camera to slide into the male fittings on the camera case. This was done by GoPro to make sure of a good solid connection. Also you need that little wiggle to remove it. I use a 60 gig card, which holds all the material I need in one shooting period. So don't rush your fences and take your time and make sure the clip is secure.
I also have a GoPro 5 and 6 mounted on hand grips. Yes I two Hand Grips. My GoPro 7 is mounted on a very small tripod which I use for a hand grip, when controlling the camera with my Suptig WiFi remote, a very useful tool that I bought through Amazon as you will see in photos that I will post in the future.
