GoPro QKWXX-511 overview

  • 1Description

This bundle from GoPro combines the Karma Quadcopter with the HERO5 Black action camera. The Karma has been designed from the ground up for use with the HERO line, featuring complete control integration with the included HERO5 Black or HERO6 Black (sold separately). A detachable gimbal stabilizes the camera in the air and can be used on the ground when combined with the included Karma Grip.

  • Karma Quadcopter with Harness for HERO5 Black

    Convert your GoPro HERO5 Black (available separately) into a fully integrated aerial imaging tool with the Karma Quadcopter with Harness for HERO5 Black. This compact, folding drone can stay aloft for up to 20 minutes and features a detachable gimbal stabilizer that will help keep your footage silky smooth. Karma includes an intelligent, game-style controller with a flip-up touchscreen for complete control over the HERO5 Black as well as the ability to view a live camera feed. You can also buddy up with a friend: Thanks to the GoPro Passenger App, one person can pilot via the controller while a second uses the app to monitor the camera and change settings as needed.

    In addition to the Karma, this ready-to-fly bundle includes a flight battery and charger; the Karma Grip handle, which allows you to use the stabilizer on the ground; and a compact case.

    Gimbal Stabilizer for GoPro HERO5 Black

    The Karma stabilizer is a motorized gimbal that compensates for vibration and other unwanted sources of movement to give your footage a polished, professional look. This version of the gimbal features a harness (camera mount) specifically for the separately available GoPro HERO5 Black
    Detachable for Handheld Use
    The stabilizer detaches and can be coupled to the included Karma Grip for use a bit closer to the ground. The Grip supplies power to the stabilizer and features video record/photo controls accessible by thumb
    Wearable / Mountable
    The Grip is also compatible with many types of separately available GoPro mounts and can also be used with the built-in shoulder mount on the Karma Case

    Karma Controller

    Video Game-Style Controls
    The Karma Controller features video gamepad-style controls for intuitive operation.
    Flip-Up Touchscreen
    A touchscreen enables you to view a live feed from the GoPro HERO5 Black as well as change camera settings while the bird is in the air
    Total Camera Control
    Designed from the ground up to give you full control of your GoPro in flight, Karma lets you remotely control all camera modes and capture settings, add HiLight Tags, and more using its built-in touch display
    Preflight Training
    The built-in tutorial and flight simulator make it easy and fun to learn how to fly anywhere, anytime, even before your first flight

    Flight Control System

    Automatic Takeoff and Landing
    Using a single button on the controller, you can launch the Karma as well as bring it back to Earth
    Built-In No-Fly Zones
    Built-in No-Fly Zones help prevent the drone from accidentally flying into restricted areas
    Automatic Return Home
    Karma safely flies back to you when out of range, if there's a lost connection, or when the battery runs low
    GoPro Passenger App
    In addition to the pilot, a friend can get in on the action using a separately available mobile device and the GoPro Passenger App. Through the app you can view a live feed as well as operate the camera. This means the pilot can concentrate on flying the aircraft

    Built-In Auto Shot Paths

    Pro-quality shots are easy to capture using Auto Shot Paths flight modes:
    Dronies
    This is a selfie mode that keeps the GoPro HERO5 Black locked on you
    Cable Cam
    Create aerial tracking shots in which the Karma flies a long a fixed path
    Orbit
    In this mode, the Karma will fly along circular path keeping the camera locked on to a fixed subject
    Reveal
    Stay close up on the subject, then pull away for a dramatic reveal
  • HERO5 Black

    Ruggedized and ready for adventure, the GoPro HERO5 Black action camera can be taken to the skies, over rough terrain, and even underwater without flinching, recording 4K videos and 12MP photos along the way. The sealed rubberized chassis allows the HERO5 Black to be taken to depths of 33' without the need for an external housing. So whether your escapades take you to the lands of concrete, sand, dirt, snow, or water, the HERO5 Black is prepared to record with a single button press. Once you have finished recording, use the touchscreen to playback and even edit your footage right on the camera.

    It's hard to speak about the versatility of the HERO5 Black and not mention the mounting possibilities available through the included and separately available accessories. The Frame is included with the HERO5 Black and not only adds another layer of protection, it provides an interface to the world of 3-prong accessories. To get you started, a mounting buckle quick-release for The Frame and two adhesive mounts (one curved and one straight) with quick-releases are included. Other accessories such as handlebar mounts, selfie sticks, suction cups, and dive housings for creative placement of the HERO5 Black are available separately.

    Not only is it more versatile than previous generation HEROs, it's also easier to use. A touchscreen graces the rear surface, displaying a revamped user interface, while the front screen combined with the top and side buttons offer a more traditional one-button control experience. If the camera is off, pressing the record button will power it on and immediately start recording. Hands-free control is also possible using the built-in Voice Control feature. Speaking simple voice commands can control various functions inside the camera, including start/stop video recording, photo burst, and more.

    Quick Features
    • Photos: Up to 12MP, 30fps burst, time lapse mode, raw file option, Wide Dynamic Range mode
    • Videos: Up to 30fps in UHD 4K, up to 80fps in 1440p, up to 120fps in 1080p
    • Waterproof to 33'
    • Simple one-button control
    • Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity
    • Advanced wind-noise reduction using 3 microphones
    • Voice control
    • Digital video stabilization
    • Rear touchscreen display
    • Automatic upload to the cloud
    • Built-in GPS
    Video Recording Modes
    Select the desired resolution to fit your project. Record in UHD 4K resolution up to 30fps or switch to lower resolutions such as 1080p and 720p for access to higher frame rates, more FOV (Field Of View) options, and electronic stabilization. In 2.7K widescreen and lower resolutions, for instance, narrower FOV options open up, including Medium, Narrow, and the new Linear mode (only available in 2.7K and 1080p settings), which corrects the lens's barrel distortion.

    All video recording modes can be as simple or advanced as you want them to be. If you only want to ensure that a shot is captured, auto-exposure is at your disposal. For those who are shooting less off-the-cuff footage and want complete control, manual control of exposure is also available.

    Audio for video is recorded using three microphones. In normal conditions, the HERO5 Black will process the audio for a stereo signal. If high winds start affecting the audio, the HERO5 Black can intuit which microphone is picking up the best sound and automatically switch to that microphone in real-time and filter out any excess wind noise. While the audio will only be in mono, you will know that you're getting the highest possible audio quality.

    Photo Modes
    Raw File Option: In addition to standard JPEG capture, the HERO5 Black can also capture raw images in the .GPR format. Raw images offer enthusiasts or professional photographers more flexibility after the photo is taken. Raw images can be processed after-the-fact for higher quality output.

    WDR Mode: Bridging the gap between JPEG capture and raw, the WDR (Wide Dynamic Range) mode is also available. If the scene has dark shadows and bright highlights, WDR mode will retain better detail in those areas.

    Burst Mode: Bursts of photos can be taken during high-action sequences to ensure that you capture the moment. The camera's buffer can fit up to 30 photos from a single burst, and burst durations can be set from six seconds to one second, effectively offering a 30fps burst of 12MP photos.

    Time Lapse Mode: Record clouds floating by, traffic snaking through cityscapes, or stars and constellations tracing their way across the sky with the time lapse mode. Set your interval from a picture every 1/2 second to every minute for different effects.

    GoPro apps Capture and Quik allow you to access and edit your GoPro footage with simple to use yet powerful functions. There's also GoPro Plus, which lets you access your GoPro content on the cloud.

GoPro QKWXX-511 reviews

Karma Quadcopter with HERO5 Black is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 32.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid product but be careful This is a very good product, well-designed and easier to use that prior generations of prosumer quadcopters (e.g. DJI Phantom). Hero5 footage is excellent, and rock steady even in a bit of a shifting medium to light breeze. However, note that the propellers, prop arms and body housing are hard plastic and will break if subjected to moderate impacts. After several test flights with good control and results (5-stars!) flying in a lightly-wooded area, my Karma inadvertently made contact on slow ascent with an overhanging branch, causing it to drop like a rock onto asphalt from a height of about 12 feet. All four props disintegrated on impact, two of four arms snapped, and the battery housing/body cracked down the center. Totally 100% operator error, but I suspect that the Phantom (I or II) might have survived a similar battle with gravity in slightly better shape. I did buy a replacement, but plan to coddle it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great drone and camera I am a life long Nikon user. My thing is landscape photography with a big camera and big tripod. Aerial photography was always a dream out of my reach. The rapidly growing technology with drones gave me a second thought on my aerial dreams. Once I heard that GoPro is coming out with a very own drone and a Hero supporting RAW imaging I did not hesitate to buy Karma and Hero5 Black right away. It took a while to get it. Once I got it, opened the package, loaded up all the required batteries and flew my first rounds I have to say that I am completely satisfied. Two suggestions: Do NOT buy a drone flying simulator software. Karma comes with a controller which has a simulator. Second, buy the care plan with GoPro richter away. It gives you the ease if you do something wrong with your drone and it crashes. It happened to me and I do not think that paying US$ 199 for two years for protection is a lot of money for gear that cost close to $ 1,500. All functions are very intuitive and flying the drone is easy. The video and the photography utility of Hero is good to very good taking into account the size of the camera and the fact that it gets up to 1,000 feet altitude and up to 3,000 horizontally from where you stand. I can watch all the flight form the controller's display. Sweet!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Karma has what you need! Pro Quality! Very easy to fly. Image quality of the Hero 5 is amazing. The Karma Grip is a huge bonus, easy to use and smooth video. Be sure to grab a few spare batteries for the drone, you'll want to keep flying once you run through your time (16-18 minutes). Train with the included flight simulator on the remote before you fly, it responds as the actual aircraft would. Overall build quality is excellent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flies Great! Nice and simple! I have always been a big fan of the go pro products. I was a little hesitant in the beginning, after the first recall. I am very pleasantly surprised. It's very stable, flies well, it is very portable. I was looking to buy a drone, and I like how GoPro puts everything into one package. I would say the only downside is the battery life it seems I get around 15 minutes of flight time. Not too big a deal, I just ordered a second battery.
Date published: 2017-03-09
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good and bad The good thing about the Karma kit is that the included handle and gimbal are much more handy than I anticipated. The bad news is that the Karma itself is unpredictable. You can get some very nice looking shots with the GoPro on the Karma and thanks to the gimbal they are quite smooth. But the single worst thing about the Karma is it’s instability without gps guidance. You absolutely should not try to fly it if it says there is no gps connection. The problem is that it sometimes loses gps connection mid flight, which has lead to crashes. This flaw should be considered a deal breaker.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GoPro Karma Review GoPro Karma although not as good as DJI Mavic Pro but as a complete aerial & on land solution, GoPro Karma serve its purpose, be it on land or aerial
Date published: 2017-03-11
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than Mavic or Phantom in some applications I'll start by saying�I also currently own both the Mavic Pro and have owned Phantom 2, 3 and now 4. �I shoot mainly Real Estate photography and when I need a camera that I can get into tight spaces (trees close to homes e.g.), the Karma is my go-to. As you can see from the images I'm attaching, it captures pretty great wide angle shots ...DJI's offerings don't have that capability. It's like owning the right tool for the right job.
Date published: 2017-12-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Film making made easy I've only owned my gopro+karma kit for a week and between the hand held stabilizer and drone, plus the new hero 5's amazing quality footage I feel like having cinematic shots has never been easier. It's also outstanding to take with you in your travels to be discreet while capturing raw and beautiful moments. I'm an extremely happy customer. Would recommend practicing flying the drone in an open field, it's definitely a nerve wrecking experience so always best to play safe.
