  • The teaser video you posted on FB about GoPro’s Karma in the library a few weeks ago piqued my interest, Tania! Now the cat is out of the bag and it’s a pretty amazing quadcopter and it sounds like the controller simplifies its operation. Neat how it folds up into the case that can be carried in a backpack. The way the camera is mounted eliminates seeing the rotors in the video frame, something that was a pet peeve with your DJI Phantom 2.
