The fallen bird is back! And I’ve been testing it for days. In this 28 minute video I’ll try to explain every possible question you may have about the re-released GoPro Karma. I’ve compared it to 2016 GoPro Karma, Phantom 4 Pro and other drones.

Horrible product. They shouldn’t even re-release it. It should die last year.

TechnoBuffalo says:

Love this!!!

Bushangels says:

Watched it again, just for the ending…genius! LMAO

William Sheedy says:

You need to make sure that you are comparing the Karma to competitors in its price point; the Phantom 4 and Phantom 4 Pro are not, and hence are an unfair comparison. In addition, I would advise talking about the good parts of the drone and the ways in which its imperfections don’t matter instead of trying to roast it the entire time. For example, nobody cares about audio when you’re droning unless you want to hear “ehhhhhhhhhhhhh” the entire time. And are sensors that important? How about discussing the negatives of sensors, such as why they make flying close to objects such as rock climbers (in my experience, the Phantom 4 couldn’t get as close to a climber as I would have liked) close to impossible? Also, the Karma comes with a convenient backpack and an incredible gimbal, showing that the Karma package is more than just a drone; it is a pretty solid filmmaker kit allowing for steady footage from the air, the ground, and even some miscellaneous mounts.

Dubious music choice. Hate women?

David Britton says:

IPhonedo, Is all the music in this video yours? I’ve been looking for it on you original music sites and cannot find it.

J W says:

Thank You . I will buy the DJI

Enrico de DIOS says:

I really enjoy this review because I just purchased a mavic pro 🙂

darthbill68 says:

geeze I wanted a Karma so bad…because I like the detachable gimble and camera option…but the more I see the Phantom 4 pro does seem better, and the collision avoidance is very important…and this is the 2nd vid of yours about this I have watched…I love your reviews, even if they are swaying me from what I told myself I wanted…thanks…

Kamel Labiad says:

You are amazing and I love brutal honest people

Texownian says:

This SO looks like the Wilshire Blvd area where I lived “near Brentwood” (Santa Monica(Granville/Goshen)). Love your videos, good information while making one laugh.

Rithik Agarwal says:

worst review ever

G Gunawan says:

Fuckin’ love your review mate! It makes perfect sense and yet so bloody entertaining 🙂 So much more than a drone… oops… i meant to say … so much more than a review!

Jesse Newell says:

Yes but can it stay in the air without moving all over the place by itself? That’s really horrible for filming they say.

Rene Lopez says:

haha…i love that Karma song

Alex Espendez says:

flurrywhite says:

Market forces will prevail…goodbye Karma.

Kaipo Fitisemanu says:

I’m still happy with my almost 4-year-old Phantom 3 Advanced. You can take a look at my most recent video. 2.7k is good enough for what I do. I’ll give GoPro one more chance to get it right before I invest in a new drone.

Ashish Patel says:

I purchased by karma dron

Frank Leppar says:

I don’t understand this review. The DJI P4 Pro is obviously a great drone… but it’s not even in the same price range as the Mavic or Karma. It’s like comparing a BMW to a couple Ford Focuses. Why not just review the Inspire 2 against the Mavic and talk about how much the Mavic sucks?

When you compare the DJI Mavic to the Karma, you have to consider that for the same price, the Karma has other features (back pack + gimbal) that you are buying with that money. Those features knock the Karma down another $300. So yeah, the drones won’t have the same tech… but that’s because you’re not paying the same price. It’s tough to compare a $500 drone to a $1000 drone.

The Mavic’s camera isn’t all great, the GP5 is very similar if not a little better. But a couple years from now you’ll be able to snap the GoPro 6 or even 7 into the Karma while the Mavic will just be the Mavic’s camera.

Finally, the big advantage the Mavic has and the only thing that really matters are the size, flight time, and resale. Great size for easy traveling with it, the flight time dominates the Karma so you can carry half the amount of batteries and fly further away from ground zero, and it will resale high because of all the hype when it’s time to upgrade to a new drone.

I think the Karma is a great beginner drone, while the Mavic is a step up in terms of actual flight. If you want a complete package that will be modular and upgrade over time, the Karma is the only drone that I know that has such capabilities.
