GoPro’s Karma Drone Is Back

It’s unclear whether the company’s move to recall the drone without a legal reason to do so will gain the company some much-needed karma (pun intended) after laying off staff shortly after the recall.
The Karma faces stiff competition from the widely-popular DJI Mavic, which is not without it’s own issues – it continues to face supply problems as a result of huge demand. Karma makes it easy for anyone to capture amazingly smooth, stabilized video during nearly any activity.As before, the Karma features a compact and foldable design that fits into an included backpack. It also comes with a game-style controller with an integrated touch display.Several videos revealed that the Karma drone was crashing back to earth while in mid-flight, and of course, it is risky for drones to be suddenly falling from the sky.
