GoPro Karma review: A decent drone with stiff competition


On November 8th, 2016, GoPro issued a global recall for the Karma drone following cases of electrical failures causing a loss of power during flight. GoPro advises that owners can return their units to GoPro, or their place of purchase for a full...

If you're interested in drones and looking for a smart flying robot that also shoots video, it's hard to recommend Karma over Mavic. But enthusiasts who are only looking for a drone already knew that and didn't need to read this review. If you've...

GoPro Karma


After a rocky launch, the GoPro Karma is available for purchase, but there are better drones on the market at lower prices.

Works with Hero4 and Hero5 cameras. Includes handheld grip for gimbal. Solid tutorial for beginning pilots. Remote has integrated display. Some automated flight features. Easy offline map downloads. Includes backpack.

Short 15-minute flight time. Very limited suburban operating range. GoPro camera not ideal for aerial work. Remote screen is prone to glare. Omits obstacle avoidance and follow mode.

It took a while to get off the ground, but you can go out and buy a GoPro Karma today. And while brand devotees who already own a compatible GoPro action cam may see some upsides—including the bundled Karma Grip and relatively attractive price point—I...

GoPro Karma drone coming in October


GoPro's first crack at a flying camera could shake up the market thanks to a clever stabilization system and user-friendly controls.

GoPro Karma Quadcopter Review


A great and fully-featured videography kit that will serve filmmakers well

Great video quality, gimbal can be used in ground based filming as well

Controller joysticks could be better

The Karma is a great drone that captures high quality footage and provides multiple other on the ground filming options. If you want something that can keep up with your creativity both on the ground and in the air, you won't find a better value.

GoPro Karma In-Depth Review


When it comes to products from major players in the sports technology landscape, there was probably no more widely hyped and awaited launch in the last few years than GoPro's Karma drone. One must remember that prior to mid-September, relatively little...

GoPro Karma Review | Trusted Reviews


GoPro Karma review: GoPro's first foray into the world of drones was met with some turbulence, but now that things are flying steady is it worth picking up?

Simple to set up and fly ; Complete system in a backpack ; Good image quality ; Sturdy and well made

Short flight time ; Low transmission range ; No 'follow me' flight modes ; No obstacle detection or indoor modes

GoPro Karma review


Updated 28/9/17: GoPro's drone didn't quite hit the heights of its rivals, but an update should give it a lift...

A complete package in a slim backpack ; Handy Karma Grip accessory ; Simple flight controls ; Good build quality

No obstacle detection or indoor sensors ; Low transmission range ; No “follow me” flight mode ; Short battery life

A simple, all-in-one drone system for GoPro fans, but it's still very much flying in DJI's slipstream
