  9. Jeff on November 28, 2020 at 9:23 pm

    Great video, thank you for making this. I’m new to the Drone world but bought the Karma as my first and love it! I’d like to know how to change the date and also wondering, when you play the video
    captured, thru the "Quik" software, you can add Gauges to the screen and it shows "FT" and "Elevation Gain". Is the "FT" based on the altitude from sea level and the elevation gain is the altitude from where the drone took off".

  10. Nack Jicholson on November 28, 2020 at 9:26 pm

    Can you use this drone to take photos with or is it only used to capture video footage on?

  11. leon fernando on November 28, 2020 at 9:26 pm

    GoPro 7 black boiiiiii

  12. Matt Melkesian on November 28, 2020 at 9:27 pm

    Very helpful.

    I have completed everything up until take off. Everything looks good, but the drone will not start. Any recommendations? The power button on the top is flashing. What does this mean?

  13. Rick Scicluna on November 28, 2020 at 9:28 pm

    Can you controll the angle of the camera or direction while flying the drone such as tilting the lens up or down?

  14. Carmen Santelli on November 28, 2020 at 9:29 pm

    Muy bueno, lo tengo gracias por el vídeo!!!!!!

  15. Gregory Townsend on November 28, 2020 at 9:30 pm

    I know this was some time ago but im looking to buy one, i heard the karma has been known to just fly away, is that true? Also if there was multiple people flying drones in same area would their controller take over mine by mistake? I know dji is better i hear but i also am buying the gopro 6 so it only makes sense to buy karma. I just want to make sure i dont lose it

  16. kike9468 on November 28, 2020 at 9:32 pm

  20. Kristen Moon on November 28, 2020 at 9:35 pm

  23. Zarah on November 28, 2020 at 9:38 pm

    Bought your books on Hero6 and the Karma Drone since I got the bundle. Really enjoy your clear and simple explanation videos. This is my first Drone and GoPro or POV for that matter. Thank you for making things so much easier and fun for us newbs. 🙂
    Come to think of it, your vids is what allowed me to feel comfortable in jumping into the bundle.

  24. 2bsure on November 28, 2020 at 9:39 pm

    Just back in after first flight with the Karma. I have had it a few weeks after getting it for an offer I could not refuse but with work shifts did not have time to use it. I took it out today with my DJI Spark. Did a flight with Sparky which was as always then fired up the Karma. Awesome flight, it was off like a rocket and flew so smooth. I was gonna sell it and get a Mavic but after that few minutes flight I think I will keep it.

  25. juan1573 on November 28, 2020 at 9:40 pm

    Im changing my dji spark for this drone without putting money on top, is it a good choice?

  26. Journey With DavaoJack on November 28, 2020 at 9:41 pm

  30. RanGer498 on November 28, 2020 at 9:46 pm

    Will this work with the hero7 black?

  31. Karina Villegas on November 28, 2020 at 9:47 pm

    mine may have manufacture defect because I lose signal or it may not have long range

  32. Patrick Guerrisi on November 28, 2020 at 9:47 pm

    Should I practice on my cheap $30 drone first ?

  33. Bung Chew on November 28, 2020 at 9:48 pm

    *I’m such an idiot, because I bought one of these over a year ago and it’s just been sitting… I decided that I wanted to fly it yesterday, but when I went to charge the battery — the battery doesn’t work… The battery that came with it doesn’t take a charge and my purchase is 15 months old, so I can’t just take it back… Any suggestions? I left it charging overnight because I saw somebody else say that and still no luck… I sprayed it with some electric contact spray and follow that up with some air in a can, but nothing still.*

  34. Rev. Chris Hall on November 28, 2020 at 9:49 pm

    Great video.

  35. Leo Stallworth on November 28, 2020 at 9:53 pm

    This thing won’t work, it just stays on the updates available screen and when I press download it doesn’t do anything in my camera is fully charged.. the fuk

  36. Jordan Keyes on November 28, 2020 at 9:55 pm

    where can you buy these

  37. hammer slammer on November 28, 2020 at 9:58 pm

    I received one of these as a gift for Christmas. Finally had a nice day to try it out. Had some supervision from a friend that is obsessed with these kind of things. We went around the yard a few times was kind of thinking maybe these things are all they are cracked up to be.
    On the third auto land about 6ft from the spot it just took off and ran into a shed about 100ft away! It’s about 26ft tall and it hit right on the peak. Hit the ground in pieces… kinda scary and glad it didn’t hit anyone!
    Has anybody ever heard of this happening? I dont have anyway of proving it and dont know if should complain to the company or if this is just a one of those lesson learned things…

  38. Phil Falsetti on November 28, 2020 at 9:58 pm

    EXCELLENT! Simple and concise! Well Done! Thank yoU!

  39. ashihtaka on November 28, 2020 at 9:59 pm

  40. Victor Ortiz on November 28, 2020 at 10:00 pm

    What can I do to avoid the Aerial Exclusion Zone in Mexico? Because there are no airports and the zone of restriction is very large. ? What I can do?

  41. Ward4251 on November 28, 2020 at 10:05 pm

    Excellent tutorial.

  42. Orange County 714 on November 28, 2020 at 10:05 pm

    The number the FAA gives you, it’s for recovery if it’s lost. Lol. You don’t need the FAA for that. Just stick your info. on it. I bet # is more for tracking you if your drone is involved in an accident and no one claims responsibility.

  43. hammer slammer on November 28, 2020 at 10:05 pm

    Thank you!

  44. Jozef Roman on November 28, 2020 at 10:05 pm

  46. Silver Charmer on November 28, 2020 at 10:07 pm

  47. Gato Gidh on November 28, 2020 at 10:09 pm

    Is it bad to tighten the propellers? I don’t feel secure just to rotating them till the motor rotates.
