Sure. But basically, all the subjects are getting cut off.

Gaza - can you make the subject line section in the forum topic list wider? It's cutting off the subject field really short.

Gopro usb knackered

Bugger.  Was hoping to get lots of Fpv flying in yesterday.... Plugged the cable into the gopro3 and usb port disappeared into camera.... Now seems to be loosely waggling about there.  Won';t charge from it,  and video out not working. 

Fun and games.  I';ll try taking it apart to fix it,  but not holding my breath :-(

Got it all apart.  Usb plug broken off.  Far too wee contacts for me to solder back on.  Arse. 

Question is... Another gopro 3 or do I go for the 3+.....

Ive always found myself coincidentally in the USA when the new ones came out before and could get one cheap... But not this year.  And UK price 100quid higher than USA price as usual.  Humph

your excuse for a gopro 3+ ;)

See what the warranty department say, if they';re any good they may allow you to trade up to a 3+.

Yeh well I';ve ordered a 3+ black :-)

I might fire an email to gopro though and see what a repair costs.  I have an external charger,  so it';s still useable for non Fpv stuff.

Go my new 3+ black today.  Nice kit.  A lot better in low light,  and noticeably sharper at 2.7k.. Where they have also added a medium option (though that isn';t very good).  Battery is 10% higher capacity.

I did same exact think to my hero black. I called gopro and started a claim they offered me a new one at 40% off retail price and send them my broken one. I havnt yet. I bought another Hero 3 black. One nice thing...the new one has option to turn off camera OSD. Must be a software update. Not sure what im going to do with old one now. Also upon taking apart i noticed only 3 out of the 4 mounting pads were soldered. Got to believe that didnt help the situation.
