GoPro Introduces $799 Foldable Karma Drone

GoPro has taken the wraps off its new foldable Karma drone. With a price tag of $799 without a camera, it's a bit steep compared to other quadcopters but, if you are buying the bundle the price isn't bad considering this is GoPro we are talking about.

The whole bundle including a Hero5 will cost $1,099. If you prefer to get it with the new Hero5 Session, it's $999, or bring your own camera and it'll cost $799. During the press event today, Woodman was keen to point out that Karma was a stabilization "system" and not just a drone. The quadcopter is, of course, the heart of Karma, but the handheld grip is mountable with regular accessories, which opens the stabilization features to pretty much anything you can stick a GoPro on (though we're fairly sure it's not fully waterproof!).
