GoPro just announced the Karma Flight Kit for GoPro Karma grip owners, who now can upgrade and take their GoPro game to the sky. The Karma grip sits at the heart of the GoPro Karma, and is compatible with the GoPro Hero 5 Black and GoPro Hero 4 Black and Silver.
So the new Karma Flight Kit from GoPro has been designed to get your video off the ground and into the air with ease. The new Karma Flight Kit, is available now in the US on GoPro.com for $599, and it includes everything you need to take your super smooth, stabilized GoPro Hero 5 Black and HERO 4 camera footage to new heights. Zip open the sleek case to access the Karma Drone, Karma Controller, battery, charger, six propellers and a snug inlay to house your Karma Grip.
All you have to do to start flying, is to simply remove the stabilizer, harness and camera from your Karma Grip and lock it into the Karma Drone.
UK pricing for the Karma Flight Kit has not yet been announced yet.
Unlike most consumer quadcopters, the GoPro Karma drone can also be used on the ground thanks to the aforementioned Karma Grip, which is very similar to what a DJI Osmo does for example, the difference being - you can actually change the camera and use either a GoPro Hero 5 Black or the older Hero 4 models, with an additional adaptor harness due to the difference in body design between the models.
The video below gives you a pretty good idea of what the Karma Grip can do for your videos.
The Karma Grip by itself, is priced at around £290 including VAT.
