Gopro Karma Drone: Learning the Basics The GoPro Karma Drone is the first foldable drone. The announcement was made in December of 2015, but the long- awaited GoPro is not yet up for purchase until October of this year. It is lightweight and easy to use when compared to other drones currently on the market. It is a professional-grade drone that can be used by anyone and comes with its own backpack. In addition, the GoPro Karma drone requires no assembly, simply remove from the backpack, unfold the propeller and you are ready to use. The parts can be easily replaced if damaged and the GoPro Karma is able to stand up to everyday wear- and- tear.
