Ok. So i flew it with updated stabilizer from version 1.01 to 2.00.
So far i see no difference in performance other than the latest version supports the tilt upwards limit.
The latest version also have the option of stabilizer calibration. Something that was greyed out in the old version of the firmware.
So i flew it. It was defenitely not as stable in hover like the mavic air that i also own but i like the ”give” that it bounces around the air. If i make sense. It had like a weight to it.
i love it that i can hear it clearly and see it cso i know where it is. I can see it better than the MA and it was defenitly have that finished product of the quality of the videos. 2.7k was way better quality than 4k in the MA.
Yes sure it was defenitly more sensetive to the compass/GPS where the compass color goes from green to yellow. My screen touches was also sluggish compared to my iphone 6s plus with the mavic controller.
I just love how it hovers around the air.
also people complain about hard landings or difficult landings. Hmmm. I didnt experince it.
I was actually more confident in landing it where i let it hover slowly til 1 foot before i slowly and gently hold the left stick tiny bitsy touch until it touches down.
tips for those that have the karma.
With your camera connected to the drone and gimbal but only the camera is turned on, turn OFF the GPS and the wifi of the gopro hero camera.
Especially the wifi. Turn that thing off. It is in the manual of the karma in small letters that you must turn off wifi from camera before you drive it with the drone.
the wifi MIGHT interfere with the connection of the karma drone to the controller and will leave you no control of the drone.
its even in the phantom 3 manual.
Download the UAV forecast app where you could see the KP value.
you want the value 3 or lower. Anything higher than that number, dont fly as you’ll certainly have interferance.
Always always and one more, always calibrate the compass each and every flight. Might not need to when changing batteries on the same place.
let the drone be on the ground before take off to lock more GPS. On the mean time, check your settings of the camera while waiting.
Hover for a while and check for response to the controls. Check for hover behavior.
if it is jerky or drifts too much then land ASAP.
move away and try again.
Always fly line of sight. Always check battery level.
The karma is advertised as 20 mins but youll get 18 mins.
mavic air advertises thesame 20mins but im getting 13 mins right from the start even in 100% battery. And it only has 8 cycles of battery
When you are a bit far, start to come home manually with in 10 minutes remaining.
if you are close then 6 mins remaining come close to you abaout 50-60 meters distance. That way if anything, you can land as soon as possible.
Dont push the batteries capacity and dont test your assuptions thinking you could have the last percentage of battery life. Always be on the safe side.
Thats my rant.
Not all karma drones suffer like others are having. Even DJI mavic 2 pros suffer from gps and connectivity disconnections and fly aways.
Mavic minis have problems with uncommanded descents.
If only the consumers knew all this tips right from the beggining at release, gopro wouldnt have as much problems as they have now.
