Re: GIMBAL MOTOR NOISE ON GOPRO HERO 5 !!

I have this problem too... Maybe a option to turn off the right mic may help! Gopro we need an update!
External mic may be an alternative solution, but as the high price and ugly looking of the adapter, come on Gopro...

And no more waterproof if I use the external mic...
