Bullet point
BEC Board is specially designed for Naked GoPro HERO6/7/8 which weighs about 1.5g, makes your naked GoPro lighter and easy to install on your drone.
The BEC output voltage is 5V@2A, avoid the accident of power of which is caused by the insufficient power supply for the FC board. Also, stock buttons and LEDs are integrated.
Integrated GoPro stock buttons, Power/Mode Button and Record Button.
Integrated GoPro stock LED to know the status of the camera.
The pad is available for pilots to control the GoPro recording via the radio transmitter.
With the pluggable connector, which is easier to connect with your flight controller for power supply and recording.

BEC Board Diagram
The two buttons on the BEC board have the same functions as the GoPro spare buttons. Three actions we will use frequently.

Power on-Press the power/mode button, the LED flashes three times and goes out.
Start recording-Press the "Record" button once and the LED flashes slowly. If the LED flashes once and goes off, it means there is no SD card.

Under normal operation, plug the GH1.25 connector into the GoPro Lite camera firstly, then connect with the battery. The LED will flash once, then you should press the Power/Mode button once in a second to power on. The LED on the BEC board has the same status as the stock LED on the GoPro mainboard.

How to Setup Remote Record
Pilot could use the switch on radio transmitter to start/stop record. Some more configuration needed.

For example, if you use F4 FC V2.0 in the drone, like the 95X whoop drone, the connection diagram is shown below. The yellow cable (FC B12 pin pad) is just for the remote record.

We use the Pinio function in Betaflight to control record. First, setup the Pinio function of the B12 pin in the FC board.

resource FLASH_CS 1 NONE
resource PINIO 1 B12
set pinio_box = 40,255,255,255

Next, map one of the switch channels in your radio transmitter to this Pinio (aka USER1). As shown below, we map the AUX4 channel in the radio transmitter to USER1 Pinio. The cursor in the orange zone means button released and white zone means pressed. So keep the cursor in the orange zone in default.

Third, check if the Pinio function works. Change the switch and make the cursor move from the orange zone to the white zone, and finally back to the orange zone. Now you could check the LED status to know if the record starts. Use the same process to stop recording.

If you use the 12A F4 AIO FCboard, like the 85X whoop drone, you will use the LED_STRIP pin (aka A08 pin pad) for the Pinio function.

resource LED_STRIP 1 NONE
resource PINIO 1 A08
set pinio_box = 40,255,255,255
