Yes.

This is more of an FYI - unless you consider MSRP a SD?

It looks like a decent kit for GoPro fans or casual consumers - or for traveling with. The main thing is that they have to get it right out of the box. Most new drones have failed due to bugs and other initial quality problems.

DJI, the big drone Co, is also introducing a new foldable model with more advanced features than Karma (ground sensors, etc.) - next Tues. in NYC.
I was invited to the launch event.
Karma is shipping Oct 23 they say.
DJI often ships within a week of announcement - so they may just beat GP in that fashion.

It is exciting to finally see some new stuff on the market!

I agree. I watched the promo videos for the Karma, and was pretty impressed, though I was a bit concerned with the 20 minute flight time, and as you mentioned, the fact that this is their first drone offering, and buying the first model may end in regret.

Also, thanks for the heads up on the new DJI. I will be keeping an eye out for this release.
