I’m hearing the Hero 7 will work with the Karma drone. Anyone hear different?

Official word from GoPro is that Karma will need “an update” in order for it to work.

I suspect this means a software issue rather than a hardware issue.

When will it be updated? I haven’t heard an ETA.

Looks like the Silver and White versions wont be compatible.

"....The two cheaper options, Silver and White, aren’t as capable, and they don’t use the GP1 chip. They also have integrated batteries, and they aren’t compatible with the Karma Grip stabilizer or the now-dead Karma Drone."

The article didn't say the 7 wasn't....

The new stabilisation system looks great too.

But still no 4K Linear video option :(

If it had that I would have bought one for use in my drone.

I'm seeing updates on GoPro's official board saying it will be compatible with Karma and no hardware updates (like a new harness) will be needed. They still haven't announced an ETA.

I really like the Hero 7 especially the time warp or whatever they call it. Think it would take some great drone footage. The bad news with the Hero 7 that came out is the gimble will also be dead.

Well... that is the marketing pitch, but I’ve seen plenty of reviews that beg to differ.
