    I know the fanboys will persecute me but I still say the problem is GOPRO did the right thing. If you can't be a 110% sure, ground it! I've seen in the last 3 years using DJI we are the test pilots.... I've even see the hospital twice due to erratic Inspire behaviour.

    Slight issues with sliced fingers and arm after the bird had some 'turn the **** off' issues and indoor with GPS off. Good news is now 2ys later I think they've sorted the bugs. Thumbswayup:D

    I totally agree GoPro did the right thing. I'm not sure what dji would've gone if it happen to the mavic or any other dji product.

    GoPro has stock listed - which means share holders and board members and they need to report.
    DJI is private (and in CHINA) - this is why they never admit to fault or do any recalls. They can simply keep the issue to themselves and roll out fixes. We've seen this with the firmware to lower motor output to prevent P3's dropping from the skies; Supplying Inspires with prop locks to prevent props popping off.
