I get that file from card with special program but player wont play it... Any ideas to get it working...
put the card back into the gopro , sometimes it fixes it .. but chances are you will lose the last minute or two of the video, this normally happens when the gopro has a bad knock, i think the buffer gets cleared

yea haha. I used hot glue, because if I need to adjust you can get it off, but it takes some time.

It's generally important to put the card back in the GoPro before doing anything with
it on the computer. Once the computer modifies the contents in any way, the GoPro
won't see that it's in need of recovery any more.

I just got back from my skywalker flight for the 2nd time and this time the motor got so hot that I was unable to touch it. Also the mount started come off because of the heat. Im running a 9x6 prop im going to try a 9x6e and make the motor run the other way and see if it runs cooler. Anybody else getting hot motors from bevrc.com recomends?

I don't have that motor, but the specs indicate that a 9x6 would not stress it to the point of becoming too hot to touch... stange. Pardon the silly questions, but are you sure you're using a thin electric prop and that it is mounted the right way round? Do you have to fly WOT all the time or does it easily cruise at below half throttle?

Oh man... I'd wait. The sound from the air passing the GoPro isn't that great, but the views from the air over Crete! Don't miss that shot. I'd live with crappy sound and get the videos. Just put your favorite music over the video.

I fly whot about 30seconds bring it to half land and its burning hot. Also the motor off does not spin very good. I also thought they spin pretty freely. This was spins but not like smaller motors I have for other planes.
