GoPro Removed Video Out Via USB Port?

I haven't had a spare minute to test out any of my drones that run the DJI Zenmuse GoPro gimbals that rely on the USB video output yet, but just heard that GoPro eliminated that key feature with a Firmware update that can't be undone? I recently updated all 4 of my GoPros, and if this is actually true, I now have about $2000-$2500 in equipment that just became completely unusable. Please tell me this was just a random rumor?

Works fine with my updated Hero4 and Hero3+ on my 3DR Solo.

Re: GoPro Removed Video Out Via USB Port?

I hope this is still working for me! I have seen tons of posts on the drone forums of upset people. I will test mine when I get a chance. Just scared. Enough posts makes me think it's real. And I could just throw all my GoPros away if it is, that is the only reason I bought them.

Re: GoPro Removed Video Out Via USB Port?

I know that when v4.0 came out people were having issues with the Hero4. On Solo it killed the ability for the drone to auto on/off the camera. V5.0 firmware fixed this. In the forums that your reading about the issue, are they talking about the previous firmware or the current firmware?
