The Remote is constantly losing connection to Hero 9 Black

[ New ]

I was really excited when the new remote was finally available in Europe and ordered one immediately. 

The battery life is amazing, but sadly the remote loses connection to the Hero 9 Black constantly. When I start recording the display on the remote freezes, the record timer stops and I can't control the Hero 9 anymore. I tried to reset the Hero 9 and the remote and re-paired them. I'm still getting the same problem. Further, the GoPro app on my smartphone started to have connection issues now and needed to be re-paired. 

The new Firmware update to v1.52, unfortunately, did nothing to help in this regard. 

The remote is on v.1.2.0.

I have to say, I'm a little bit disappointed.

Is there a fix to this issue?

Regards, Stefan

It is best to give the remote control back and get the money back while it is still possible. They won't fix it like the sound of the winds off

Tried it all, without success. It seems to be better with FW 1.52, but it still loses the connection sometimes.
