    No Devices Will Update from Version 1.5

    Please help. I just bought a new in box GoPro Karma with a Hero 5 camera. I assembled everything and then attempted to update immediately. I updated the camera using the Quik app on my phone and that successfully updated to version 2.5. I then connected the camera back to the drone correctly...

    GoPro Hero 6 no GPS data when in Karma

    Hey guys, so I used my Karma drone to shoot some green screen footage to put into blender and I'm looking to recreate the movement in Blender using the GPS data. I'm using Telemetry Extractor to get the data in the right format but as the photos show, when I upload the Karma footage there's no...

    Karma stabilizer stopped working correctly

    My karma stabilizer was working perfectly on my karma drone since I bought it. It was crashed once, but was repairable and has worked fine until recently. The other day, the stabilizer started to move very slowly up and down when I used the control wheel. It was still working, but very slowly...

    Karma back left propeller motor not working

    I sunk my drone but still got it out of the CT River in 30 degree weather. Talk about almost getting frost bite! But when I got it home, I dried it out but wasn't patience enough and some water was still in it. Long story short the back left motor started smoking and it fried something on the...

    Altitude and Distance Tests

    I read many reports of limited range with the Karma and I wanted to post proof the Karma is capable of height and distance. The key to Karma range is location, staying out away from civilization where the interference is almost nothing.

    Downtown Lake, San Antonio

    Just a few minutes of footage from Woodlawn Lake Park in downtown San Antonio today. The clouds and light were nice, so I said what the hell. The airspace was permitted per the Airmap app. Towards the end, when I am at the other end of the lake, I lost connection a bit and the movements were...

    Karma battery fault

    Hey, guys. So I bought myself a GoPro Karma Drone a couple of weeks ago off Ebay and the battery was not charging. It was blinking 4 times and going off. Today I received my new battery that I ordered new from the GoPro site but I seem to be having the same problem. Do you think it's the...

    Karma Hero 6 for Close-Up Inspections??

    Hello Dronies, Wanted to know if anyone has experience using the Karma to shoot video of close-ups. I am finding that it is pretty tricky to get in close enough to get a close-up shot of, let's say a part on a high-tension cable. Does the DJI Phantom 4 have better capabilities for a job like...

    My eighth Karma flight and my first bad experience. Some of my friends were heading out on a RIB so I planned to position Karma mid channel and video them leaving the Harbour. However, soon after takeoff the controller said something like "Karma GPS lost use joysticks" while Karma kept heading...

    Hello from Austin, Texas.

    Hello all. Im glad I found a Karma drone forum. Ive owned a gopro since 2012 and upgraded to a hero5 and wanted a drone so I "needed" the karma. I don't think its the best drone for the money but like everyone says on other threads, it kinda makes sense if you have a gopro camera, just want to...

    I thought it might be an interesting exercise for aspiring pilots or novice pilots to study these types of crash videos in an effort to avoid making the same type of mistakes. Perhaps his expensive loss can save others from making the same mistakes? Perhaps experienced pilots can share tips and...
