Extension cable for Audio adapter for hero 5/6/7

Hi guys,

I have recently purchased a Hero7Black. (My first gopro)

Am abount to buy the audio adapter for using external mic.

Since i vlog on mototrbike, i find the adapter brick pretty huge as already notice by all.

Was wondering if its possible to use an extension cable with usb c type male female ports on either ends so that i can position the adapter a bit further away from the camera, like maybe at the back of the helmet.

 

Has anyone tried this?

 

Regards,

Shomit

Re: Extension cable for Audio adapter for hero 5/6/7

I, too, am looking for a vey flexible and lightweigh USB-C adapter cable for use with the ridiculously designed GoPro adapter. It is impossible to use the adapter with a gimbal mount. It is too heavy and the cable too rigid, If I can find a flexible adapter cable, I could put the adapter in my shirt pocket with no problem. From what I've read, if the extender is not too long it should work. All the extension cables I've found have been too stiff, and the gimble is not free to move properly.
