Remote for GPH6B

I am looking for a waterproof trigger for my GH6.

 

I will have it mounted on a kiteboard kite 4-6m away from me. I could try and use voice command.

 

The smart remote by GP doesnt seem so smart after reading some reviews. And I read that the battery life could be better and to charge the thing, it has to be plugged in somehow...not good...

 

All I need is someing to trigger the thing off and on, and water proof.

 

Any ideas?

Re: Remote for GPH6B

Hello @beebad

 

The Smart Remote control would be best for the setup, considering it can work up to 600 feet (around 180 meters) under optimal conditions, and is also waterproof. As the kite will be mobile, the voice command may not be effective and the GoPro App setup is not waterproof. But it will still be up to your preference. Other Hub members maybe able to share some ideas. Let us continue to watch out for their replies. 

 

Thanks, 
Marius
