I have personally flown the Karma successfully about 5600 feet (a mile is 5280 feet) before it decided to automatically return to the take-off point. And by the way, it was very cool to see it autopilot itself the entire way back to me. Once the drone is back in range there is an option on the remote to regain control.
The Karma drone package is by far the best deal for the majority of people. For $1100, you get the drone itself, battery, backpack, gopro hero 5 black camera ($399 value), gopro stabilizing stick (actually very cool in and of itself, $299 value), and a few other attachments.
The camera of course can be used separate from the drone; and the camera is pretty cool. It is waterproof to 30 feet without a case, can be voice controlled, touch screen (with on screen editing functions), and of course video that rivals more expensive camera systems.
The handheld stabilizer is much more useful than I thought it would be. It, along with the hero 5 internal antishake mechanism, result in a butter smooth picture even while hiking, mountain, biking, etc. It makes a big difference watching footage during mountain biking without and with the stabilizer. Without the stabilizer footage can be nausea inducing. WITH the stabilizer, it was like watching the star wars speeders flying between the trees.
Oh, and so far, the Karma drone works pretty well. I've had one episode of GPS loss but was able to land it with some difficulty. But as far as I know, none have yet to just fall out of the sky (the battery issue has been fixed).
I'm getting about 18 minutes of battery life. However, the Karma will return to you with about 2 minutes of battery remaining, so expect about 15 minutes of useful flying time. (Let's see, 18-2 = ... you get the idea).
The battery charges to full in an hour. I bought two extra batteries and have two chargers. Works very well for me.
Overall, very happy with my purchase. It's really the drone purchase that made the most sense for me.
Hopefully this helped
- Easy to fly
- controller (I hated hooking my phone up to my drone and killing the battery)
- The hand stabilizer is a game changer. What a special addition that takes the stabilization from the air to the ground.
- It is easy to take off and fly in open areas
- Heavy Drone
- Has no sensors to prevent it from hitting obstacles in its path.
- The landing can be rough if its not on a flat surface.
Overall Karma is a great drone that can use improvements but for the price and the hand stabilizer like I was saying is a game changer and brings to the table no other drone company can. Nice work on that GoPro!
However, I wanted a Hero5 to upgrade my aging Hero3+ Black (which has always been a fantastic camera), and I wanted the Karma Grip, so the bundle that included the Karma drone wasn't TOO much of a leap. And I am SO HAPPY I went for it.
I've flown my Karma several times, including at some very high altitudes (10,000 feet) on a recent mountain trip, and mine works perfectly. The picture is fantastic, the image is as stable as can be, and the battery life is great - nearly 30 min on a full charge as advertised. The controller is VERY easy to use, and the big bright touchscreen shows a very clear image during flight with virtually no lag or delay.
Is it missing some fancier features that other drones have? Sure. It doesn't have follow-mode, or collision detection - but I knew that going in. Again, if you're already in the market for the Hero5 and/or Karma Grip, this is just a no-brainer. I personally wasn't interested in spending $1000+ on a standalone drone, so this was a great compromise.
The included Karma Grip is also amazing. Incredible motion stability - I've even held it out the window while off-roading with a buddy in his pickup, and the shot was silky smooth. Even if you aren't in the market for a drone, I'd recommend picking up the grip.
I don't think I've ever left a review on Amazon before, but I wanted to re-assure others that have been wary of this drone. It really seems like GoPro has solved whatever production issues they had early on. Follow the instructions, give yourself some time to learn how to fly it, and I think you'll be happy with it.
P.S. - I had a run-in with a tree on my maiden flight - the drone is sturdy, and the body came out completely unscathed, but I recommend picking up a pack of spare propellers :)
