Its time to race the GoPro Karma against the DJI Mavic AND the super fast Phantom 4. This race will take into account the top speed of each drone AND the turning ability. On paper the GoPro Karma can go 35 miles per hour. The DJI Mavic can hit a top speed of 40 miles an hour in ‘Sport mode’ and the Phantom 4 is the fastest drone of the trio that tops out at an impressive 45 miles an hour. But… thats only on paper. Watch the video to see who really wins.
The GoPro Karma was recalled a few days after we filmed this race. Every single Karma that was sold is being recalled. If it was just a software issue… GoPro could have just updated all their drones. BUT since they are physically recalling every drone they sold (About 2500 drones) it makes me think that the issue is a physical one; in the hardware of the drone.
Its super unfortunate that the GoPro Karma is being recalled. Hopefully GoPro is able to fix the issue quickly and get the drone back on the shelves fast.
