Today, GoPro has unveiled their foldable Karma drone, available to buy on October 23rd. It costs $799 alone, $1,099 with a Hero 5, or $999 with a Hero 5 Session.
The Karma features a detachable stabilizer that can be used to make non-aerial, handheld shots more steady. A rugged, outdoor-ready travel case is included with each Karma:
The GoPro Karma is compatible with either the HERO4 (black or silver), the HERO5 black, or the HERO5 session, the latter two products also just announced this morning.
The transmitter has an integrated FPV screen and is being positioned as extremely simple to use. At the end of the setup process, a built-in flight simulator helps to reinforce flight concepts. There are also a few auto-shot paths:
- Cable Cam
There’s also a “Passenger App” that lets friends see the live video and to control the camera while the Karma is in-flight.
I look forward to reading more reports about the Karma and to testing it myself this fall.
