No.

Too many other (perhaps better) options now. GoPro video has always been a pain in the behind to edit if you want to do something other than just dump it up to youtube. Other companies are offering more features for the buck.

Agreed - and I'm a GoPro user. I just bought a GitUp Git2 yesterday, these guys had gyro stabilization a year ago. If you need to have pro-quality video, then yeah, GoPro is king of the hill, despite it's pain-in-the-azz user interface. But for just about every common person out there that is just making home vids, or uploading to You-Tube, there are a couple options that are extremely close in quality, and less than 1/2 the price.

Nope. I will never own a GoPro. I've always hated their form factor and their proprietary mounting system. Other companies had better design and just as good video but were crushed by the GoPro giant.

My iPhone takes Hollywood movie quality video if I really need high end. Otherwise my contour roam still kicks out video that satisfies.

Custom metalwork. PM me with your ideas.

I'm not really a DJI fanboy but just showing gopro has no protective barriers.
Their hardware is commoditized and their software is clunky.

They're a marketing play with great branding who's lunch continues to get eaten.

Probably going to buy the Hero 5 session for track use. I like the mounting, rugged case and small footprint. Video settings are much better on this one. Sucks I can Bluetooth my sena unit to it for street riding but my hero 3 silver with sena backpack does fine for that. Most people watch youtube in 720 anyway to speed upload times.
