Hi @boldpeak25437

 

Are you referring to the HERO7 Black firmware?

We do not recommend installing the lower version.

 

 

Thanks!

Re: Upload 1.51

Bad idea mate. 1.61 is not perfect but much better than 1.51 for sure.

Re: Upload 1.51

Some people mistakenly think the stabilization is not as good on 1.61 as it was on 1.51

If anything, the stabilization is much better on 1.61

Re: Upload 1.51

But in 1.61 the battery drains in 5 min. So I want a lower version. How to manage that?
