So the guys over at Wired have a YouTube series called 'Battle Damage'. It basically tests out how much brutality a certain product can take before it becomes unusable.

This week they put the GoPro through its paces, and while we all know that the thing is near enough indestructible within the coveted case, it was interesting to see how it would fare without the armour.

The thing is indestructible within the coveted case, but how it would fare without the armour?

The result? Well you'll need to watch the video to find that out. We can give you a couple of hints for future use though - don't worry if you drop your GoPro, and don't let anyone hit it with a golf club.

That said, it was a GoPro HERO 3+ the Wired team destroyed, so perhaps an update on the new HERO 4 will save it from golf-related capitulation... although we still don't fancy its chances.
