Hero5 Black stops recording

So I am taking lessons to get my pilots license and use my GroPro Hero5 to record those lessons so I can debrief and go back and watch the video as a training tool. I had some issues with the picture out the front of the cockpit being washed out and I got some really good avice on my settings in this thread:

 

https://community.gopro.com/t5/Cameras/Hero-5-Session-video-washed-out-in-Brightlight-looking-for/m-...

 

After I got the settings switched I recorded my next flight and had zero issues. Picture came out perfect and the entire flight recorded. The last two times I have had an issue where the GoPro will record about 30min of video and then for some reason stop recording. It's not that the camera ran out of battery or the SD card (64gb) is full because I enter each flight fully charged and the SD card empty. It happend a few days ago where it will record about three 9min long videos and then for some reason it stops recording and shuts down. I thought maybe it was a fluke, but it just happened again today when I took my lesson and when I uploaded on my computer after I discoved it only took four 9min long videos. The GoPro still had battery when I turned it back on after the lesson and SD card still had tons of room. Can anyone help me with why its deciding to stop recording during the flight? Like I mentioned above right after I entered the settings in the above thread it worked fine and recorded my entire flight. After upload I delete the card and charge the GoPro full and last two times it cuts out after about 30-45min of video. I will attach a screen shot of my settings and a still frame of the video to see how I have it set up. Thanks in advance for everyones help and input.

Re: Hero5 Black stops recording

Jay,

 

Thanks for linking the video, that makes sense why it breaks it up into smaller files. Seems like I also fixed the gopro shutting off during filimg. I changed form 4K back to 1080P and it seems not to overheat the camera as much as the 4K did and it didn't shut down during last flight. Seems the camera doesn't work as hard in the lower resolution setting and allows it to stay under the overheat shutoff threshold.

Re: Hero5 Black stops recording

Just for clarity when I say it records three or four 8-9 min long videos I mean in the upload there are three or four files and each file is a video about 8-9min in length. My entire flight is usually 1.5 hours so I don't know why its turning off midway through the flight. When we get started I just hit record and put my phone back in my pocket so its not touched since that point. The first video after I adjusted the settings in my previous thread I created it worked just fine and recorded the entire video. So I don't know whats going on and what I have done differently now that makes it stop recording. Thanks so much guys for someone like me who knows nothing about GoPros or recording video this community is a god send!

Re: Hero5 Black stops recording

 

Hi @camerong410,

 

I think it's normal since our SD card can't handle large files. 

This video might help you.

Just skip to 2:56

 

Hope it helps.
