Always-on metadata on Hero5s

Thanks for this group.

So both Hero5s record metadata on the video files (gyroscope, accelerometer, temperature and sometimes gps and other) but for some reason, maybe battery management, when recording on modes over 60fps the data is not recorded (at least from what I've been able to extract). These data can be useful for many more things than stabilising the video (that's why they put the sensors there in the first place), so it would be cool if it was always recorded. GPS is already optional, so if the reason for not recording the other sensors is battery or something like that, it could be optional too. Maybe a toggle within Protune.

Nevermind. It's already there. I was not looking in the right place
