NAB 2017: GoPro Karma Drone and Grip

Allison interviews Jake Barz from GoPro about their innovative Karma drone. The Karma is a quadcopter with collapsable propeller arms and landing gear for enhanced portability. It houses a GoPro camera (Hero3 and up) in a front-mounted, 3-axis gimbal with a built-in gimbal dampening system. What makes the Karma unique is how the user can easily dismount the gimbal from the drone and quickly mount it to the GoPro Grip handle for handheld steadicam video. The Karma kit also includes a padded backpack tailored to the Karma, a battery/charger, and a proprietary controller with high res screen for first person viewing during flight. The setting is the NAB Show floor in the Las Vegas Convention Center. Learn more at
