Update (October 21, 2016): The Karma has been released and will be available for purchase on October 23, 2016. Read more about the Karma – and how it compares to the new DJI Mavic Pro.
Just a few days ago, GoPro released a sneak peek of their soon to be released drone.
Initially announced back in May at the Re/code conference, GoPro CEO Nick Woodman tells us to expect to see their first quadcopter launch during the first half of 2016.
Along with the teaser video, GoPro is giving away 100 drones at launch. Want a free drone? To enter, signup on their site.

No details have been released yet on the design or pricing of the new Karma drone.
How The Karma Drone Compares
While it’s hard to compare without details, the only direct competitor that Karma will have is the Solo by 3DR. They have a gimbal and mount specifically for the GoPro camera. GoPro fans will have to choose between these two options. The other major player is DJI and with the release of the Phantom 3 they no longer have GoPro mounts.
It will be interesting to see if the Karma will dominate its category – just like the GoPro has for action photography.
