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.

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.

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.

If you get outside into the great outdoors, then you know GoPro. You probably also know about drones. You might even already have one. If you don't, then get ready to knock out two birds with one stone; GoPro has a drone. And new Hero action cameras to fit that drone, too. It'll be barely a month before you can get your hands on GoPro's brand new Karma drone, and two new Hero5 action cameras will be out even sooner.

Video: GoPro has been working in its Karma camera drone in secret for years, and it's very, very close to becoming a real thing. If you like drones, and if you like silky-smooth, crystal-clear video, then this short teaser clip should get you hyped.

Video: Scaling a sheer cliff face like climber Liu Yongbang does in China takes incredible strength, unparalleled determination, and the ability to completely block out thoughts of falling hundreds of feet to your demise. He may have the courage to tackle something like this, but odds are you're going to want to keep a clean pair of pants nearby before watching this terrifying footage.

Video: There's a lot of money in energy drinks. Red Bull pours a lot of that money back into its sponsorship of Formula 1 and extreme sports, though, and its latest enterprise in partnership with GoPro is The Fourth Phase, a snowboarding adventure documentary in the vein of the also excellent, also Red Bull-ish The Art Of Flight.
