Hiya. I have never heard of anyone flying without a camera or gimbal.
I haven't heard of "Pro flight" either. Please enlighten us.

Have fun.

I don't believe this is possible. Without the gimbal and camera, the center of gravity would be shifted far towards the rear of the Karma and significantly mess up the flight dynamics. ...and pretty sure the drone nor controller will even start-up for flight without them both inserted.

I don't understand. Both of the videos you show set the Karma to fly without GPS which we all know you can do at great risk. Your question was......about flying with no gimbal and camera wasn't it???

Take care.

Mike,

what caused the outage? I was in Turks and Caicos last weekend flying my Karma. I calibrated the drone. All seemed fine. Within one minute of flight I lost GPS signal. Karma flew 1000 yards out to sea before “landing in place.” Total loss.
Your thoughts?

Same thing happened to me in Roatan about three years ago. I communicated with GoPro and they first said it was my fault but after a little push they finally said that it seems it was partially their fault and they were willing to send me a new body only. So it ended up costing 50-50.

Thanks for sharing. I have been trying to get them to talk to me re: my flight log review but I can’t get them to reply.
Frustrating...
