Looks like the one Robert is using? I think I might have got the idea from him a few months ago and ordered it along with the Sabrent 7 port usb hub


Found it, he linked to it in this thread:

Glad there was no permanent damage. My RaspberryPi 3b fell off my ota onto the paved driveway once but no damage, my Nanopc-t4 fell off but was saved by the mount cable that was plugged into a usb port. I changed from using regular velcro (if there is such a thing) to the dual lock 3m stuff. There are drawbacks, if you need to separate things it really takes some muscle, sometimes the sticky backing rips off whatever I have it stuck to but for the most part it is really good, and nothing ever falls off now.

Those temperatures are pretty much the same as mine with the fan running, without fan the idle is around 50 and working around 65-70.
Are you using a powered hub? I just checked here, when I take the hub out, I have the getting stuck at 30 images problem, plugging the hub into the single USB 3 port I have on the NanoPC-T4 and plugging everything else into the hub, the problem disappears. As soon as I plug anything into the USB 2 ports on the NanoPC-T4 the problem returns....turning the fan off will also cause the problem to return.....really hard to diagnose, there might be more than one thing going on.

Heat maybe? What does Htop report for a cpu temperature? My NanoPC-T4 (same RK3399 SOC as yours) has problems unless I run a fan on it. I was stuck with 30 or so images before I put the fan on.
I'm using Armbian 5.85.
I'm curious if you have the same problem with your ASI385MC?

I ran into this a few weeks ago. On the Stellarmate site click the sign in button, enter your username and password then click products , then orders and you should see a link to the image.
