I just got the Hero 9 and after a google search about the heat, was directed here. I am having this issue also with the 9, so it doesn't seem to be resolved. It is scary hot, definitely could either harm the components or skin if worn near skin, as I hoped to do with a headstrap for trail running.
Is there a solution? I just got it and doesn't seem it will work as is.

The camera was just updated two days ago, and I am using the provided SD card. I am using the camera in room temperature, and it gets excessively hot when when just turned to make a 20 minute video. After that video, the fully charged battery had been depleted to below 50%. Seems that something may be defective with this unit.
