Recording with hero 7 black in 1080 60fps in wide format. shuts off after 17 min. Is this normal?

I'm trying to record my kids soccer games with the Hero 7 Black. It shuts down after 17 minutes max. Is this normal? I'm guessing that it is a heating problem, but i thought that it would be fine using the 1080 60fps setting.

It's not normal. What SD card are you using? Can you try with a different card?

I sat at 80 degrees the camera gets hot to 153 degrees at 48 minutes  then dead, battery depleted with 10% life to continue.  so  either yoyu ran dry on battery, or your card filled or you over heated in the baking SUn as it   got high..  

 

what sd card, and I do a full format not a quick and not on a mobile device
