GoPro has launched into the drone market with its own flying camera the GoPro Karma, which is to be released on 23 October 2016.

The drone comes with everything you need, apart from the camera.

You also get a backpack which fits the fold-up drone, the controller (which has a built-in screen), the handheld grip, a battery and charger.

It has a 3-axis gimbal which can be swapped between the drone and the Grip handle so you can get stabilized handheld shots and the Grip can be mounted to vehicles and even your body thanks to a new range of mounts.

It has a built-in battery that’s said to last almost two hours.

It uses brushless motors and screw-on self-tightening propellers. It takes a proprietary Li-Po battery with a capacity of 5100mAh and GoPro says it’s good for up to 20 minutes of flight time.

It takes an hour to recharge, while the controller takes 2.5 hours and the Grip 2 hours. Only one of the Grip or Controller can be charged at the same time from the battery charger.
