Livestreaming issues of GoPro 7 black

I bought GoPro 7 black for Livestream. Here's some issues I found after about 3 month of using it.
1. Weak Livestream connection. If you have weak signal gopro drops the Livestream. The developer who did this, never made a Livestream outside his office! Fix it please. I want my GoPro never drop my Livestream under no circumstances!!!!
2. Very strict settings of RTMP Livestream. Let us choose bitrate of video and audio. Now I cannot Livestream on some platforms like periscope.
3. If you turn over you camera when you're Livestreaming the picture stays upside-down. Why didn't you test it before launching this Livestreaming feature? Fix it please.

If you don't fix this problems I'm gonna return this product and get my money back because me and other people I know cannot actually do RTMP Livestream.

4. Very high bitrate of RTMP Livestream in 480p in 1.6.1 firmware which is about 4000 kbit/s. You will never do a stable livestream outside the office because of this bitrate is too high for livestream using selluar data. Please lower a bitrate to 2000 kbit/sec maximum and let us choose the bitrate of video and audio when you do RTMP livestream.
