    What do those of us who spend a few hundred dollars on a drone, which constantly has to be updated, do once they are completely done with the Karma? Will the drone still be functional?

    It would be grounds for a lawsuit if they brick it.

    So does that mean they will continue to provide updates?

    I spoke with customer service rep today. They said that they will still support repairs, replacements, and software updates to the current Karmas. I purchased GoPro care recently and asked them if they would support the drone replacement for the next two years and he seemed confident that they would.

    I have only had to do one update since I bought my in December. But... lets be realistic here, this is technology. It doesn't matter what Drone you purchase, there are going to be updates. The updates however are to help your equipment run and operate better and safer, so... you can complain all you want about the Karma updates, but you're going to have those regardless of the manufacturer

    Yeah, I agree. I guess I jumped to conclusions a little bit.
