Can I move a GoPro Sensor to a different case? Answered

I was wondering whether I could take apart a GoPro (hero 4 silver) and then put the sensor and components into a DSLR case in order to use the DSLR's lens to avoid the fish eye effect.
How could I keep the sensor intact/clean during this process?

If you don't want a cam with a permanent fisheye effect: Don't buy one ;)
I have no problems finding all sorts of info on replacement lenses, adjustable lenses and more for the Go-Pro using Google - I suggest you try it one day.
As for your actual question: Use a cleanroom, you local chip manufacturer or hard drive manufacturer might give you access for a while.

However there aren't any 4k30 cameras at that price range.

That is why people sell different lenses or them I guess.

How should we know if YOU are capable of transplanting a GoPro sensor (plus all the other electronic stuff) into a DSLR case. Theoretically doable? Maybe if the DSLR case is big enough. Can you do it? Since you have to ask - probably not.
