    Master AirScrew Aftermarket Blades

    I live in Switzerland and I second that! There is a minimum charge that you have to pay no matter the inherent value. I have written to the Federal consumer protection agency and they basically said they were powerless in this case. Now, that sucks! Gesendet von iPhone mit Tapatalk

    Opinions on when they will discontinue the karma

    Hi, could you tell me where you got the case in the picture on the right? I am familiar with the backpack on the left, but the one on the right is much better for traveling. Gesendet von iPhone mit Tapatalk

    Karma flips over on take off

    It has happened to me once, too. Since then I am mindful of where the wind is coming from. Also, in my incident, thermic issues may have played a role, as it was on the shores of a lake, a promenade walk-way. Gesendet von iPhone mit Tapatalk

    Best Procedure to Calibrate

    I usually put the controller on the floor and step away while I can still recognize what‘s on the screen. Also, I go through the individual calibrations in the order they are shown in the menu. To start you have to tip the screen, after which you can step away, hold steady and then do what it...

    Karma drone charger unresponsive

    When I had this problem, I called GoPro support. They went through a series of checks with me on the phone and sent me a new battery. I’d say, if the light on the charge is on and other devices get charged OK, it is likely the batteries that died on you. Gesendet von iPhone mit Tapatalk

    Guide me in buying a karma.

    Do you guys know something other people here do not? To the best of my knowledge the latest news was early in January this year. And that said GoPro have dropped their drone line. So, why do you say “it worth to wait for karma upgrade model”? Gesendet von iPhone mit Tapatalk

    Karma Flight School: How to D.I.Y Crash your Drone

    I had a deja-but, my drone had flipped on landing once. Thanks to your detailed explanation, I know what to avoid. At the time I had no idea why it had happened, because just a few minutes before I made a clean landing. This is why I read these forums and look at videos. Gesendet von iPhone...

    The Karma is still being manufactured

    First of all, I am a novice drone pilot, just like yourself. I am on my second Karma, having ditched my first one into a river, on my third outing. So, I know how you must feel. From what I have seen, and this is in no way a lack of understanding. It is not Karma being faulty, it is very likely...

    GoPro Care Replacement Karma Shipment Issues

    Mine took almost 6 weeks till delivery: by UPS, which means I couldn’t use the 24h pickup station our postal service provider offers. The turnaround in the GoPro warehouse took more than 3 weeks - I know, because of tracking provided by UPS. In Europe, you apparently have to send it all to...

    @Waterlogged Mine was in the water for about 4 minutes, I ended up having to replace the drone, stabilizer and battery. I was completely honest about my mistakes that led to the drone falling into water, sent GoPro the entire footage, and they were nice enough to replace everything. Try and...

    Found a screw....

    @Marcel the ends look different from what I know of the Karma. What type of driver would you need for it? Karma are all hexagonal, if I remember correctly. Gesendet von iPhone mit Tapatalk
