If you’re in the market for a new drone but you don’t fancy the size of the fuller-framed DJI Phantom or those of its size, then the GoPro Karma might be something you’ve considered. Karma was only announced a short while ago (last month), and with availability scheduled for tomorrow, the time has now come when you can buy one … well almost.
We understand that Karma will go on sale at GoPro.com tomorrow, with a retail price starting at $1,195.95 for the drone without an included camera. This includes everything you need to fly, you just need to supply a compatible GoPro camera (Hero 4 or Hero 5 will do the trick). If you don’t have a compatible GoPro, you can order the Karma with a Hero 5 for $1,649.95, which isn’t a bad deal; it gives you the Hero 5 for about a hundred dollars less than its stand-alone retail price, and of course, you can use it with more things than just your Karma drone.
While you’ll be able to order online, and perhaps through some specialist drone retailers, GoPro haven’t lined up retail partners just yet. We understand the Karma won’t likely be in mainstream retail stores for a couple of months yet. Once we know where it will be, we’ll let you know.
In the meantime, will you be ordering one tomorrow? We know it won’t be for everyone, but we can’t wait to take a look and see what it lets us get away with.
