(Intermittent problem starting to piss me off :mad:, thought I posted this before but can't find if I did)

About 50% of the time, now, I'll go through startup - everything seems to boot up correctly but the video/photo icon on the lower right of the controller is "missing". And, the controller Record button does nothing.

I can start, fly, maneuver, calibrate and everything else, just no video or photo.

I'll need to shut down, pull battery, reinsert stabilizer, and CURSE (a lot) multiple times and then (for no apparent reason) it'll show up.

Any insights?

Check all the connections between the gopro and the Karma body. Assuming they are in good mechanical condition, clean the connector xfaces with a good electrical cleaner:
- USB-c on the GoPro
- Between gopro and holder
- Between holder and gimball/stabilizer
- Between gimbal/stabilizer and Karma body.
- USB-c connector on the Karma body.

I used Deoxit cleaner and it improved this situation for me. Hope it helps you!

Well you are very lucky you still can fly.
Either its your gopro connection or the harness.
Atleast nit your gimbal, drone or the co troller.
