Hero 4 black completly overexposed when any sunlight

Hi everyone, so i just got a gopro hero 4 black recently bought used for my drone as i want todo some aerial filming. Now until today there has been no sun but just cloudly, and the gopro has been working alright. Today i took it out to film in the sunlight, and i looked through all my footage for the past hour of flying, and all the footage is just overexposed.
Please look at the video, to see what i mean. vimeo. com /201256278
I shoot in the following settings. 2.7k, 48fps, FOV Medium. Protune: Whitebalance auto Color flat, Shutter 1/48 Iso limit 400 Iso mode max Sharpness Low
The gopro works flawlesly indoors, but as soon as there is any sun, it just ruins the picture.
How can i fix this? Do i need to send the camera back? There is still two weeks warranty left on the camera

I found that happening too. I had to set the shutter to "auto" to solve it.

the only time i use protune is to set the shutter speed for nightlapses. I always leave in auto even when on the drone

Why do you have the ISO max at 400 in full sunlight?
