2 months agoDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use4 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesCable is nearly perfect!First, let's get this sorted. The note in the description comes from NFlight which says, "Due to the design of the GoPro, using aircraft power will not work." That is inaccurate. Using current firmware both the Hero5 Black and Hero5 Session *will* happily charge off of airplane power while recording, assuming you provide a USB-C charging connection. While it's recording the GoPro will not indicate on the display that it's charging, but it will in fact be pulling power and, if enough current is available, charge the battery. After a 90 minute flight recording at 1080p/30, I show 100% remaining in my GoPro battery. It is important to provide a high grade charging cable for minimum resistance and good shielding will help with audio whine.
That combined with the high quality of the headset connections NFlight provides make this a fantastic cable. I knock the GoPro adapter a bit because it's clunky and because the design forces the relatively heavy box to hang from the GoPro's USB-C port putting strain on it, but that can be mitigated with a zip tie. Also there's nothing NFlight can do about it, they're just buying GoPro's official adapter and adding their custom headset adapter.
Overall it's a really great solution. Suffers from misinformation in the description, and benefits from some rigging of the adapter box for strain relief, but otherwise works beautifully.March 4, 2018Durability4 / 5Reliability4 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value4 / 5Would You Recommend?YesAudio is very clear, works great!

6 months agoDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesGreat no problems!!I was impressed with this cord. I had done some research before I bought it and some people said that it doesn’t work well with different brands of headsets. I find this not true. The first video I took was with my instructor who has a bose A10 and I have a David Clark. The sound was great with no problems. I recommend this product!December 30, 2017Purchased
6 months agoDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value4 / 5Would You Recommend?YesWorksUsed for a week. RJ is a quiet environment so not sure how its gonna work with pistons (vibration, surges). Fav feature is charging while filming. Gopro battery is a joke and really weak. To sum it up sound quality is PERFECT with no noise or static.

Plug it in and forget about it. Make sure the USB-C connection is snug, or the cable may fall due to the vibration in the aircraft. All of the audio that I hear in my headset and when I speak is as clear as it gets.October 6, 2017Purchased

- Question and Answer
Browse 15 questions Browse 15 questions and 22 answersCan't use the cable while camera is in the mount?....ugh.BEST ANSWER: Yes and no. You are only prevented from using the cable while in the mount if you want the camera to remain waterproof. I can't think of any aviation uses where you would need it to be waterproof AND charging simultaneously.
The door that covers the charging port on the Hero5 is removeable, and allows you to use the cable while in the mount... it just won't be waterproof anymore.I need to extend this cable. Is this a standard audio cable jack?BEST ANSWER: This product comes with the USB-C connector to connect to the newer GoPro Session 5 and Hero 5 camera. This small 8" or so adapter then has two inputs on the other end. One connection is to connect another USB-C (which is helpful to connect to a charging source so you dont run out of battery while recording). The other connection is a standard 3.5mm aux audio input. With the purchase of this product you get about a 6 foot (approx) extention cable. On one end, it connect to one of the 2 prongs connection on the aircraft and the other end (the 3.5mm aux plug) connects to the smaller 8" cable (also included) that connects to your camera. All in all, it is PEREFECT to capture footage AND keep your camera charged at the same time.Which mount can I purchase for my HERO6 that have isn't in a case and allows for direct hookup of the subject audio cable?BEST ANSWER: I bought this kit and everything works great with it. I have used it in the plane multiple times.

Plugged the cable's male end into the plane's jack. Then my headset (DRE 1001) has two male ends, so I plugged the one that fit the cable into it, and the other into the remaining plane's jack. Unfortunately, none of my 1.2 hours of video recorded any ATC audio (nor any audio). What am I doing wrong?BEST ANSWER: It should have recorded the audio. You may return the cable for an exchange.Good day all I ordered an audio cable before for my gopro hero5 and it did not work sadley idk why I ordered it from amazon http://www.sportys.com/pilotshop/gopro-hero5-audio-adapter-cable.html from CRAZED Pilot I felt it was a big rip off buying that for 87.00 bucks and it didn't even work of course living in The Bahamas was not much I could have done refund wise.
