Feature Request - Landscape lock (but still flips horizontally)

Hi Gopro! I don't know if this is the right place to post this, but here goes.

I've been using my Hero7 Black for the last month or so and it has been great. I would like to make a feature suggestion though. 

I very seldom use the portrait mode, and therefore thought that it would be a good idea to add an extra option to the current menu for locking the screen rotation. This option should lock the Gopro to landscape only, BUT still allow it to switch between upside down and right ways up (180 degrees). Like previous generations of Gopro. Effectively just blocking out the portrait. 

I'm sure other people might find this useful so I just posted to see if there would be any interest. Maybe to roll out in coming updates ;) I saw someone else requested it in an older post as well, here.  

 

Keep up the great work! 

Regards, Rob
