Hello everyone. 2nd time drone owner and found the Karma after i crashed my cheapo amazon drone. I didnt even know that gopro made a drone till recent. Love flying the thing but having serious camera disconnect during flight if it even takes off. Glad i found somewhere that is still somewhat current for the Karma. Any and all help would be cool and and tips. Thanks.

Sorry to hear about your camera disconnect issues. This is not normal. I have heard of many Gimbal related issues that cause this type of problem. If you are not doing so already you might want to work with Gopro Customer Service on resolving this matter. If still under warranty, they may fix it for free. I suspect a certain number of drone were shipped with poor quality control and bad gimbals.

Best of luck!

Follow gopro online instructions and manually reload all software. Hopefully that solves the issue.

I am sorry for the loss. I am curious if you know the manufacture date of the Drone? Early models were recalled due to a faulty battery latch (or lack of) that caused a few to drop out of the sky.

I found out about the recall but their customer service said they were all fixes. Obviously not from my crash.
