Featuring a revolutionary design, the Karma Stabiliser gimbal can be detached from the drone for use individually with your existing GoPro HERO camera, or in combination with the wide ecosystem of GoPro mounts and accessories. Put together, the aircraft, gimbal, and camera create a stabilised flying machine - the Karma.
Easy to Fly
With a single button for take-off and landing, The GoPro Karma Drone makes flying and capturing aerial footage easier than ever. Even if you have never flown a drone before, with an on board flight simulator and tutorial, the Karma teaches you how to fly with confidence. At the same time, it provides extensive control and adjustment options to more seasoned pilots for an exhilarating flying experience. For added peace of mind, the Karma has built-in ‘No-Fly Zone’ information that prevents it from flying into restricted areas, while the crash detection feature will shut off power in case of any mishaps.
Small, Modular Form Factor
The Karma features a compact and unique folding design. The four arms and landing gear fold snugly against the body allowing the quadcopter to easily fit into a small backpack, even with the stabiliser and screw-in propellers attached. This awesome portability ensures you can conveniently carry your Karma wherever you want to go. The modular design allows you to replace damaged landing gear, arms, stabiliser and propellers without the fuss.
Karma Stabiliser Gimbal + Harness and Karma Grip
A 3-axis stabilisation gimbal and harness is what mounts your HERO action camera to the Karma drone. The Stabiliser harness and camera can easily be removed from the drone and attached to the Karma Grip for capture of ultra-smooth handheld, body-worn and gear-mounted footage. The grip offers full camera integration including charging, camera controls and footage download without unmounting your camera. Compatibility is not an issue with harnesses separately available for the HERO5 Black and HERO4 Black and Silver editions.
Front Facing Camera
Rather than being tucked underneath, the Karma sports a front-mounted camera harness to ensure the propellers, arms and landing gear stay out of your shots, giving you an unobstructed view. In addition, the placement of the camera on the front provides a flat profile to the Karma, facilitating portability and storage.
Simple and Ergonomic Remote Controller
Taking inspiration from videogame controllers, GoPro has come up with the Karma’s sleek and clever remote. The simple and ergonomic design features a minimalistic layout with game-pad style buttons to adjust settings, and joysticks for easy and intuitive movements, reducing the learning curve for inexperienced pilots. The fold-up design ensures convenient storage and protects the screen and the buttons.
Built-in Display Screen on Remote
Optimised for outdoor conditions, the remote features a built-in super-bright 5 inch screen that ensures visibility in bright sunlight and snow where you might be wearing polarised sunglasses. Operating at a 2.4 GHz frequency, the remote control has an effective transmission range of up to 3 kilometres. The touch enabled display allows onscreen adjustment of camera and flight settings and delivers a real-time 720p preview of what the Karma’s camera sees while flying.
Auto Shot Paths
Karma’s autonomous modes make it easy for beginners and pros alike to capture fun and professional-grade shots from day one.
Dronie: Keeps the camera fixed on you and takes an awesome aerial selfie. Cable Cam: Used for aerial tracking shots along a fixed path determined by you. Orbit: Locks on to your subject and captures video while flying in a circular path around it. Reveal: Allows you to start shooting up close, and then fly back in a straight line to reveal your subject.
GoPro Passenger App
The Karma Passenger App allows you to pair the controller to a smartphone and get your friends in on the action. Once paired, a second user will be able to view the Karma video stream and control the camera settings. While you focus on flying, your friend can concentrate on the camera to capture footage that requires complex moves.
20 Minutes Flight Time
The Karma is equipped with a swappable 5100mAh Lithium Polymer flight battery that gives you up to 20 minutes of flying time. The battery takes approximately 1 hour to charge with the included charger. The battery level is displayed on the controller’s screen which warns you when you are at low power and automatically initiates the “fly-back-home” mode when critical.
Compact Karma Case
An ultra-compact and weather resistant backpack-style case allows you to bring your Karma anywhere - whether you’re trekking the great outdoors or traveling through an airport. The semi-rigid, lightweight shell has a custom moulded foam interior that protects the GoPro Karma drone and all its components. A Built-In shoulder mount lets you attach the Karma Grip to the backpack’s shoulder strap for shooting stabilised footage while on-the-go.
