GoPro's first drone has a maximum speed of 35 mph and can cover a maximum distance of 3,280 feet at up to 14,500 feet. The Karma drone folds up for storage into an included small backpack and features a flight controller that replicates video game controller feel and action. The controller has an integrated 5-inch touch-screen display that allows users to fly the drone without the need for a separate phone or tablet to view what the drone is seeing in flight. It is 12 inches long, 16.2 inches wide, 4.6 inches high and weighs 35.5 ounces.

Removable Karma Grip for Handheld Video Capture

The Karma drone includes a Karma Stabilizer image-stabilization device that can be dismounted and used to capture shake-free video during almost any activity. The 3-axis camera stabilizer can also be used with the included Karma Grip handle to capture footage by hand or while using the stabilizer with other gear. Without a GoPro camera, the drone will sell for $799.99, while a bundle with a Hero5 Black sells for $1,099.99. A Karma bundle with a Hero5 Session camera will be priced at $999.99 and will be available in early 2017.
