The Switronix 12" GoPro Hero Regulator Cable Y with XT60 Connectors allows you to power a GoPro HERO3 or HERO3+ from a Quadcopter,Octocopter or Hexcopter battery. The cable will convert the available power(3S-6S battery pack) to the proper operable voltage for the GoPro camera. The Y adapter cable allows you to tap of the copter power and power both the copter as well as GoPro from the same power source.
The GoPro draws minimal power and will reduce flight times by no more then 30 seconds per hour of available copter power. The GoPro Regulator Cable Y features a DC coupler that slots into the battery compartment of the GoPro, lock securely in place unlike solutions that rely on the USB port to supply power. Providing a reliable and secure power connection is essential when using the camera, since the GoPro's are often put in precarious, high impact situations. Whether wind turbulence, motor vibration, or impact, you can insure the camera will be powered. The adapter also allows the use of the front submersible housing of the GoPro and the skeleton back. Covering the back skeleton housing openings with some gaffer tape would prove to offer a splash/water resistant housing for many situations. The cable is offered in a 12" length which should provide plenty of length when mounted below the copter or via brushless gimbal.
