We use a lot of GoPros here at Gizmodo. We use them to shoot timelapse battery tests for phones and 360 degree videos of multibillion dollar transit hubs and test runs of quarter million dollar cars on a dirt track. So a new GoPro action camera with a lower price tag and badass features has us pumped. We'd love for this to be the camera we choose to update our own fleet of GoPros — more on that in a second — but the Hero5 is definitely the one we'd recommend to a bike nut friend who wants to get into the action cam game.

Whether a beginner, a serious aviation enthusiast, or just a fan of gadgets, many of you will have received drones as Christmas gifts. Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) have surged in popularity and affordability in recent years, and there’s no doubt that recreational drone use is on the rise as a result.

Here's a neat behind the scenes video showcasing how trials cyclist Danny MacAskill pulled off a wild stunt: riding down a very short ramp so he could jump off right next to someone's house on a cliff, and front flip straight into the damn ocean. It's fun to see how he tries to figure out where the best place to jump off of is, because a lot of the planning process is just him throwing rocks off the edge to see where they end up falling.

Video: Jumping out of an aeroplane with a parachute on your back has its own risks. But at least in the air there's nothing to crash into until you hit the ground. Speedflying, on the other hand, where athletes like Jamie Lee parachute down mountains just inches above massive rocks, is basically a non-stop life-risking thrill ride.

GoPro has some terrible news, and conveniently, it came as polling places around the US were starting to close. The company just announced it is recalling about 2500 units of its new drone — the Karma — after discovering that the units were losing power during operation. No injuries or property damage have been reported, according to a statement released by the company.

GoPro's Hero4 Session is a great little action camera: it's waterproof, captures high quality video, and it's ridiculously simple to use. There's literally one button to turn it on and start shooting. Sound good? OK. You can buy one for a ridiculously cheap price on eBay at the moment.

The GoPro brand is synonymous with the action cameras. Whether you use it daily or occasionally, many of you probably have one model or another sitting around the house. Even though GoPro's point-and-shoot simplicity makes it easy to use, there are plenty of extra tricks you can learn to take your filmmaking to the next level.

GoPro cameras are amazing for a couple of reasons. Prime among them is their ability to replicate what extreme athletes go through when they do whatever mental thing it is they do for a living.

In this case it's mountain biking down a stupidly dangerous track. Very, very fast. Like insanely fast.
