There have been rumors that GoPro is entering the Drone space for the past 1+ year. Makes a ton of sense and I love how they've created an attached handheld stabilizer. $799.99 seems reasonable, launching Oct 23rd.

@rrhoover biggest question for me is flight time...it says around 20 minutes on their site, but we all know battery times are usually exaggerated. Phantom 4 feels short at 28 minutes, so this may be an Achilles heel.

@morewillie @rrhoover I never thought of the Phantom 4's battery life as short. 2 batteries and you've got near an hour of flight time.

@nivo0o0 I would have gone with "It's made of parts!"

@mrschuette that's the most surprising part about this... it doesn't seem to be able to follow you

The $799/$999/$1,099 pricing range is attractive, but I don't think it will take DJI long to release something that beats the Karma's price or features.

@soerenes DJI will be releasing the their Mavic model on 9/27, with a similar form factor to the GoPro Karma drone. They already put out the new OSMO handheld gimbal that uses your phone to record stabilized video. This is going to be about price point for a lot of potential customers, and which ecosystem they are already tied into.
