GoPro have released more footage of what we can expect from the Karma drone when it will be revealed on 19 September 2016.
The video demonstrates Karma’s fluid maneuverability as it is piloted through a library producing a near-silent hum. The drone weaves through tight corners with effortless ease alluding to Karma’s size, which seems much smaller than a DJI Phantom.
Whether or not Karma is safe enough to pilot indoors, how long its battery can last, and if it is really quiet enough to win the approval of a library shusher is still up in the air.
I don't believe it! Did you hear the noise?

The new footage follows GoPro’s first cryptic teaser which showed a Volkswagen van driving over a model replica.
At the time, it wasn’t clear if the video was shot on drone or using a slider. One week later, we have a clearer picture of Karma’s size thanks to a leaked image and now, its potential for silky smooth recording – which makes us wonder how much flexibility the gimbal will offer the pilot.
GoPro might be late to the drone wars but they could be onto a winner if all this hype pays off.
