After a few performance issues, a recall and months of being off the market, GoPro is trying to make a comeback with its drone, Karma. The company announced the Karma is now back on the market. Karma is compact, foldable, and designed to provide stable footage to users on the go.
“Karma is the ultimate aerial, handheld and wearable stabilization solution for the GoPro community,” says GoPro founder and CEO Nick Woodman. “As the consumer drone market continues to grow, Karma delivers the most versatile solution at a very accessible price.”
Karma was first released last year, but was recalled after some of its drones were experiencing loss of control mid-flight. According to the company, the “new” Karma looks the same as the one launched last year, but the battery latch has been redesigned to address any issues.
Karma features flight controls that make it easy for new and seasoned drone operators to fly; an app that allows friends to view and control the flight; a three-axis camera stabilizer that can be removed; and a touch display controller.
Customers can purchase the drone without a GoPro camera or with the HERO5 Black. The camera is also capable with HERO5 Session, HERO4 Black and HERO4 Silver cameras.
