    Somewhere in SJ7 forums, I found a reference to a YT about adapting a GoPro FPV cable to the SJ7 for having an external mic and power at the same time. I ordered some mini-USB plugs so I can build, from scratch, my version of this cable. In the video the plug is shown as having 10 pins, but my plugs have only five pins. Has anyone tried to make this cable?

    What's the pinout used in the postings? (I don't, by choice, use facebook)

    I guess I could put a meter on the pins to find which pins do what, but it's better to get the info from the design source.

    Went there - as I said in the official forum, my SJ7 miniUSB socket has five contacts, not ten.
