"Mandatory update required before flight" shows up when you swipe up to begin.



Going to updates shows a "Safety Update"



After updating, the controller boots up to this, and only this:



The party is over folks, nothing to see here, return to your homes.

Wow. Crazy. It'll be tough to recover from this. Will the 2500 early adopters purchase again?

I think I will, depending on how long it takes them. Getting the Hero 5 Black for free means I only need the $799 bundle next time instead of $1099.

That is smart on GoPro's behalf.

A free Hero 5 is such a nice touch. The company will be taking such a negative financial hit come next quarter.

Will we ever see the Karma return? I hope so.

I will wait till mid January and see what happens, I will rebuy if Karma comes available by then. After that I suspect I will start my research from scratch.
