A few weeks back, Go Pro announced the release date of its latest creation, Karma. It was only naturally that Go Pro would have their own drone. Karma They have made their cameras compatible with other companies drones, so why not have their own. Check out these reviews and videos.
Great for everyone, limiting for experts
GoPro has created a drone that’s easy to use, right out of the box. CEO Woodman said GoPro is about helping people capture and share experiences, and in that sense, Karma does achieve that.
However, there are many new drone technologies that Karma lacks, like subject tracking, auto-follow, and object avoidance – features you can find in DJI’s Phantom 4, which also offers other advanced features and longer flight time. Update on September 22, 2016: The Karma Controller has “No-Fly Zones” info that lets you know if an area is restricted, using GPS; we originally reported incorrectly that it didn’t have such a capability.
Go Pro is about the ease of use for the everyday person. They try to simplify complicated technology for the everyday person. Once again they have achieved their goal. Karma is like a one-size-fits-all. The drone itself, collapses into one piece, propellers and all. Everything you need fits into a backpack. Making it that much easier and portable when traveling. I think the biggest thing is the stabilization system. Instead of the gimbal and camera being underneath the drone body, it has been placed out in front, almost eliminating any chance of the propellers being in the shot. The grip handle is also removable from the drone itself, giving people on the go even more options and maintaining smooth operational control.
