GoPro Karma Drone Review! We have been waiting for the new GoPro Drone and it has finally arrived. In this video, Jeff walks you through the the five best features and the five worst features of the Go Pro Karma. Getting into to the awesome features first – the cool thing with buying the GoPro drone is that you also get the Karma Grip included as well. The Karma Grip is great for stabilization – you get very smooth shots and there is no interruption from change of direction. Next up is the awesome preset shots the Karma offers – Orbit, Cable Cam, Reveal and Dronie. It also has the return to home feature + GPS. The GoPro Karma Quadcopter is also very portable and comes with a nifty backpack to store the drone, remote, Karma Grip and accessories. Another awesome feature is the GoPro Karma remote – super easy and intuitive to use. The controller has video game style joysticks and buttons and a touchscreen display – overall we really liked using the Karma remote. It’s also compatible with existing GoPros – The Karma will work with the GoPro Hero5 Black, GoPro Hero4 Black and GoPro Hero4 Silver. It was initially supposed to work with the GoPro Hero5 Session but we aren’t sure that’s still the case. On the flip side, that might also be a negative because if you don’t already have a compatible GoPro, the cost of the unit just increased $300. Battery life is disappointing coming in at around 15 minutes – we would recommend buying a second battery. We also feel the GoPro Karma is a little brittle. We can see it easily scratching or getting dinged up. The GoPro Karma is also not as responsive as the DJI Mavic Pro. Lastly, the connection with remote also seems to cut out at longer distances. Overall though, we really like this drone. It wouldn’t be a surprise if this ended up on the list for Best Drone 2019 / Best Quadcopter 2019. In this debate between DJI Mavic Pro vs GoPro Karma, the Mavic still might have a slight leg up and is probably considered the Best Consumer Level Drone 2019 / Best Drones with Camera. Of course if you wanted to spend up a little more you could always go with the DJI Phantom. Anyways, we hoped you enjoyed this GoPro Karma Review!

    Old Crip wanting to do a review of a drone, just to give paraplegics like me something to do with there lives. Instead of just sitting in their wheelchairs and rotting. This is just a video to show I'm real, and not some young troll looking for sympathy. ​@yHrViKHGVI/edit that vid also shows the problem I had with DJI tech support (There tech support dont care at all) DJI makes a fairly decent product? But maybe there tech support is bad because they are made in a Communist country? Any contact info for Karma? Watch video. After DJI CRAP can't afford karma

    Five worst about Karma:
    1. Folding design, if front crash the drone will pretty much break the legs. Unlike mavic pro, the front fold in and back since drone flies in a tilted position the back legs will likely fold in to absorb impact. Thus, minimising the damage.
    2. Propeller. The karma has the propeller narrower towards the core which makes it break the entire propeller off with slight hit. The mavic pro propeller is design thick from the core outward. Even if the propeller is damage there is a chance the drone may still have the chance to hover in the air.
    3. Size. The karma is way too troublesome to carry around especially for people who are looking to bring their drone around.
    4 safety, the karma does not have any obstacles avoidance sensor not even a downward sensor. This cause the karma to drift slightly and blindly hit something or accident.
    5. Battery flaw. The vibration from motor causing the battery to dislodge and cut the power mid flight.

    5 great thing about karma:
    1. Much better valuable for price. You get gimbal, camera and drone all in one.
    2. Controller has a build in interactive screen.
    3. Future plan. The camera can be upgraded with a new supported GoPro camera.
    4. Usability. If drone is unstable, the accessories can be repurposed used
    5. May be easier to get replacement parts.

    Gopro Karma isn't very good and sold it a year ago and possibly a reason why there isn't a revision 2.
    What I did like was a 2 in 1. Drone and stabilizer camera. I did get a mavic 2 pro and love it, for now until something else comes out. 🙂
