Getting your new HERO4 working is quick and easy; follow the instructions here to get it working with your smartphone. Once you have the GoPro working with your smartphone, you can turn the camera’s WiFi network on by pressing the settings button (on the side of the camera). You will then be able to use your HERO4 Black or Silver with DroneDeploy the same as you would a HERO3.
