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.

    Well, no. We still haven’t seen the Karma. Just video shot supposedly with the Karma.

      Guess we’re all in the same boat. Just teaser videos for now. We’ll just have to wait and see what they’ve been working on all year.

      Thanks Stephen!
