    "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.

    That's a pretty generous offer from GoPro! That means that they will give out close to 2500 Hero 5 cameras!

    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.
