Hero 7 Black overheating

****SOLUTION****
After having overheating issues every since purchasing my Hero 7 Black I have finally found the solution.

Just a quick explanation of my issue.  I never had any issues recording at 4K 60FPS on battery for long periods.  I only had the issue when I needed to record for longer than what the battery would last and I had the charging cable connected.  At best I would get an hour out of it before it shut down due to overheating.

I had searched the forums with no results and had GoPro replace the cameras with no results.  Then the Hero 8 came out and it will not allow you to use the camera while charging.  You have to take the battery out.

 

It suddenly hit me.  If this is the case with the Hero 8 then could this be the case with the Hero 7.  So testing began and success.  The camera ran for 7H:28 Min which was when the SD Card was full.  Tested again today and Success.

Problem Solved!  Hope this helps others out.
