Syncing 40 GoPro Cameras, and taking photo at exact same time

I am having an incredibly difficult time syncing 40 (yes 40) gopro hero5's using them two button remote (ver 2.2.1).

 

The remote is losing connection to almost all of the cameras, and when I press the shutter release on the remote the cameras are staggering (some up to 3-4 seconds) while taking the pictures.

 

Is the remote designed to have the cameras all take images (or video) at the exact same time?  Are they meant to stagger so much?  And how can I make sure that the conenction stays secure, and not constantly drop?

 

Thanks

Bryce

Re: Syncing 40 GoPro Cameras, and taking photo at exact same time

Not that I have a solution. Just wanted to chime in that I have a significantly smaller setup with 2 (Hero6) cameras and a Smart Remote. Paired them one day. The next day, once it stops showing the wireless/network/antenna symbol for 5 minutes, it finds only 1 camera. Eventually finds 2, drops 1, finds 2, drops 1, finds 2, drops 1. I got pissed off and gave up on using the remote, but I had the same idea to start them at the same time and avoid having to sync two videos. However, not gotten that far yet, so unfortunately no feedback to give on that topic.

Re: Syncing 40 GoPro Cameras, and taking photo at exact same time

i've used 7 GoPro's off a single remote (were a mix of Hero3's & 4's) & the timings were exactly the same.
