Mashable Chinese station reported on February 2
Three months after the recall, the troubled GoPro UAV Karma finally reopened.
At the end of October, the sports camera giants launched their first consumer-grade UAV Karma. However, did not last long, GoPro eventually because of power failure problem recalled the 2500 sold Karma unmanned aerial vehicles.
At the beginning of this year's CES, GoPro announced the Karma unmanned aircraft power bombs the specific reasons, the original battery lock design mistakes is the culprit. Subsequently, GoPro redesigned the battery lock to fix the problem.
Re-launch of the Karma unmanned aircraft prices did not change, bare metal price of 800 US dollars (about 5501 yuan), with GoPro Hero 5 Black camera package was priced at 1,100 US dollars (about 7,564 yuan).
In fact, Karma UAV also has its own advantages, it uses a folding design, the head of the three-axis stabilizer can be removed with the GoPro camera. As a result, users can get a set of handheld stable shooting device without additional cost. In addition, GoPro camera can also be demolished separately, so this product can be called "Heaven into the earth can do anything".
However, in the function of Karma and UAV leading brand in Xinjiang is still far worse. First of all, Karma has no intelligent obstacle avoidance and automatic follow function. Secondly, the volume of Karma and the same as the folding UAV large Xinjiang Mavic Pro or larger, the price is also expensive. Moreover, Xinjiang has recently introduced a better picture quality Wizard 4 Pro.
Most importantly, although Karma is the first true folding UAV on the market, it is recalled to the big Jiang opportunity, their Mavic Pro quickly into the market, three months after the late Karma I am afraid Has no chance of winning.
Can GoPro bring Karma to challenge the throne of Great Xinjiang? I am afraid only time will give us the answer. (Compile / Reiz)
