Your GoPro is great in the cockpit, but to capture the entire story, you need the audio from your headset, intercom, and radio. This cable makes that possible while also allowing you to power your GoPro indefinitely.

Use this cable to connect your GoPro HERO6 to the panel and your headset. Plug one end into the side of the GoPro and the other into a standard PJ jack. The GoPro will record everything you hear and say through the headset, including intercom and ATC communications. Record indefinitely by plugging a USB battery pack into the power input. (Please note: Due to the design of the GoPro, using aircraft power will not work.)

Features:

  • Records all headset audio, including intercom and ATC
  • Includes a noise-reduction circuit for crystal-clear audio
  • Works with standard twin plug headsets. Works with aircraft with built-in ANR headset (single-plug LEMO) by plugging into auxiliary standard ports next to the LEMO plug
  • Standard cable is 6 feet long.

This cable is very easy to use. The door on the side of the Hero5 Black or Session is removable, allowing you to plug the cable into the camera. Newer GoPros do not require removal of this door. The cable includes a female plug to plug your headset into, so you’re not blocking an intercom jack.

Compatibility:

GoPro HERO6 Black, HERO5 Black, and HERO5 Session. Not compatible with any other GoPro.

The unit I received evidently does not work with the HERO 5. I tried a couple of different hook ups that did not work properly.

Overall I like this product and would recommend it. Here are my thoughts...

Pros: Excellent sound on the finished product. Sounds great.

Cons: 1) The 3mm jack in the GoPro interface box (female) is not super secure. There needs to be a screw-on connector that locks that plug in place when you get set up, or the inside needs to be redesigned . High likelihood of the plug popping out if it's not secured with a homemade strap. 2) You may need to have an additional audio recording of ambient sound to catch sounds that you may not be able to with the adapter. For example, during a stall in a Cessna 172, the stall warning did not play come over the recording as if the GoPro were recording without the adapter. I'm going to try a Y adapter and a simple mic to attempt to solve the issue.

Cable 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.

Great 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!

Used 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.

I wanted to make sure this works on gopro hero7 black. The newest go pro?
A shopper on Oct 17, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it will work with the Hero 7.
Will this work on the new 7 Black?
A shopper on Apr 18, 2019
BEST ANSWER: This cable is for the 5/6 and will not work with the 7.
I'm seeing mixed answers on whether this is compatible with the Hero7 Black. It looks like it will record video but not audio? Can you add a quick blurb on what it can and can't do with the Hero7 Black? Thank you.
Jordan on Feb 18, 2019
BEST ANSWER: We have had reports that it does not record the audio well.
I bought this cable and just tried using it. 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?
RussE on Dec 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It should have recorded the audio. You may return the cable for an exchange.
The aux audio 3.5 plug barely stays in the jack. The slightest touch it falls out. Did I get a faulty unit? I have hero 5.
A shopper on Aug 27, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I would say you may have got a faulty unit. I have not has any issues with mine at all since I purchased it over a year ago.
Can't use the cable while camera is in the mount?....ugh.
A shopper on Aug 9, 2017
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?
A shopper on Jul 7, 2017
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.
Will this cable.work with a Hero 7 Silver? I am told it won't and can see here that it will.
Pierre on Jan 4, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The Cable is not compatible with the Hero 7. The cable fits into the connection but the audio will not record.
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?
Jay B on Apr 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I bought this kit and everything works great with it. I have used it in the plane multiple times.
Search amazon for this kit

Will it work with a military headset? Not sure if that's the same as a helicopter jack, but it might be... (one prong instead of standard two for GA aircraft).
Richard H on Aug 15, 2019
BEST ANSWER: No, the impedance is not the same. This adapter is for a general aviation twin plug connection.
Hello, Will this work with the Hero 2018?
John P on May 10, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes. Definitely will.
What is the brand?
A shopper on Jan 9, 2019

Will this work with the Hero Fusion?
A shopper on Dec 24, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes
So this product comes with the official Gopro Adapter AND the cables? 2 products in total?
Rammm on Nov 27, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it is a GoPro Product. It is a single product.
I bought this cable in July and received my aircraft this month, and therefore only just configured it within my aircraft today. All connections were consistent with the fitment into all requisite plugs in the aircraft and GoPro. Neither the ATC radio communications nor any intra-cockpit communications between my passenger and I were recorded -- i.e. there was NO audio recorded. This seems to be the same issue another poster has experienced, with the response that the cable must be defective and returned for replacement. Although my notification timeline is beyond the nominal 30 day return period, since this was first use, can that timeline be waived and a replacement be provided, as it appears when working it provides exceptional audio?
A shopper on Oct 28, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, return the cable and request to have it exchanged.
I have a Hero Session (no number). Will this work for my GoPro? I can't seem to find one that will work. Thanks!
A shopper on Jul 22, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I would recomment checking with go pro.
I havr hero 5 And Bose A20 can I connect it both together with this cable???
A shopper on Jul 6, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, this will allow you to connect both of those.
I have a regular Hero plus (with no number) and I can't find a cable that is specific to this model. It does, however, have a micro USB connection. Will this cable will work? Thanks!
Brandon R on Jun 25, 2018
BEST ANSWER: yes sir, it should work with no problem. Have a nice time flying.
Is the cable long enough? I see for the hero 3 and 4 they have a 16 ft version, which seems more effective for the recording I had hoped to do.
A shopper on May 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The cable is 6 ft in length.
I know it says that it doesn't work with any other GoPro, but a Hero4 Session uses the same input, would it work on a Hero4 Session, or is there another option for the Hero4 Session?
A shopper on Feb 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The product that will work with the Hero 4 is item 2043A.
