Hello all, only 14 shorth months after it was discontinued, I'm now a proud Karma owner. I had always been interested in the Karma but could never pull the trigger until I came across the $299 refurbished deal and just couldn't pass it up. That combined with BestBuy selling batteries for $49.99 last week (I bought 2) I think I got a lot of bang for my buck. I've already registered it with the FAA and downloaded the B4UFly app. I live just outside of Washington DC about 7 miles from Andrews Air Force Base, so the airspace is heavily regulated but far from a no fly zone. I took it for it's maiden flight this weekend and hope to share some video later this week!

Welcome aboard! I almost bought a refurb, ended up picking up a used one on eBay for a good price. I also have been interested in it for a while. Just wish they were able to stick with it. Oh well, my stable of parts should be arriving on Wednesday (guy was selling 5 crashed drones with various levels of damage on eBay for $175 - going to break them down and save what I can as backups.

Oh, and being that you're seven miles from Andrews (my old stomping grounds) - I told my wife I want this for my birthday.

Congrats on your Karma! It is a fun drone to fly.

If I could make a suggestion, use AIRMAP instead of B4UFLY. It is much more intuitive and is much more accurate. It also offers real time updates. For example Temporary flight restrictions, First responder action, etc.

I just did the exact same thing, including picking up the $49 extra battery from BestBuy, thanks to seeing the deal here! What a great package this drone is, super excited to see the weather in the Midwest turn around so we can get started on a new video !!
