Comparing the GoPro Karma and DJI Mavic Pro Drones

DSIAC staff recently took a look at the capabilities of two newly released advanced consumer drones, the Karma, developed by GoPro, Inc., and the Mavic Pro, developed by SZ Dà-Jiāng Innovations Science and Technology Co., Ltd. (DJI).  Both systems are very portable, easily fitting into a small backpack; can record 4K video; and include a plethora of ease of use guidance, control and navigation features as well as automated subject tracking operating modes.  These are easily some of the best consumer drones to date, offering many advanced capabilities, which, until now, were only found in commercial and military systems.  Although cost is at the upper range of consumer products, it is relatively low when compared to previous commercial systems with similar capabilities.
