just thought last night, if we were to cut a hole in the covers and mount a miniture flue connected to a small 25mm video card fan or something on these units, that may keep them cool enough that they may not have any heat issues.
whats people thoughts on this??
see image below. atleast it will have airflow then.

There is a thread on here somewhere in this section that shows how to cut the case and attach a small heatsink to the chip.

Much neater than what you propose ans quieter as well Is about 21mm square from memory. Look here http://dashcamtalk.com/blackvue-dr400g-hd-ii/
