    I can't say no one but I tried and gave up.....it's just a little to big for the gimbal camera holder....

    I modified a GB203 with a cutoff wheel to fit my SJCAM cameras. It didn't come out too good but it works okay. I had to make my own MicroUSB connector to work with the MK58 -- that works good.

    Post a photo or drawing with the description of your microUSB connector for mk58

    It's a 5 minute job. Very easy.

    I bought this item from Banggood just so I could use the Micro USB part of it. It's $35. (You could probably find something cheaper but I couldn't find a right angle micro usb connector already wired with two wires for fpv.)

    Inside the thinner black cable of your original GB203 cable are two separate leads (wires), one for signal and one for ground. I think one is black and one is white. Black goes to black. From the Micro USB, you connect the black lead to the ground and the yellow lead to the signal. I used the gel wire splicers shown in the photo, then I used shrinkwrap tubing to hold everything together.

    Stripping the very thin wires from the GB203 cable is the only hard part -- they break easily.

    btw, you MUST HAVE Video Out option on your Thieye -- I don't know if Thieye's have that option in the menu.

    I believe that Thieye has the function

    The cable I bought from Banggood had the Micro USB connector with the two wires already attached to the right places in the usb connector. All I had to do was splice those two wires with the TWO tiny wires INSIDE the small black cable in the original GB203 cable connector shown in the pic above.
