Hero 5 wifi time out

Hello, when I connect my hero5 black to feiyu gimble G6, it works perfectly, but after 10 minutes, wifi connection is lost between camera and gimble, and I am unable to stop the recording with the dedicated button on the gimble...

What is the wifi time out duration ? is it true that after 10min, the wifi on hero 5 black is shut down automatically ?

What can I do to avoid this ?

Thanks for help

Hi @snowydive518

 

 

Since this is a 3rd party device, we do not have much information/troubleshooting.

To isolate the issue, try pairing your camera with the GoPro app and see how the connection behaves.

 

You can also get in touch with the gimbal's manufacturer.

 

Thanks!

Re: Hero 5 wifi time out

Hello, but sorry it was not my question : has Hero5 a time out wifi built in ? It means, after 10mn of wifi connection, is wifi shut off automatically ?
