An the the winner is?

The DJI Mavic Pro is lighter, smaller, faster, has a longer flight time, a larger range and is smarter than the GoPro Karma.

The DJI Mavic Pro wins (9 of 12 points) and is the clear winner for this ultraportable drone battle. The GoPro Karma does have a couple of advantages including the ability to remove the camera + stabilizer and use it as a handheld stabilizer (Karma Grip). The Karma also includes a full-fledged controller with a 5 inch display, where the Mavic uses your smartphone as it’s display. With a weight of 625g, the question is if the Karma controller is worth the extra weight. The DJI apps are known for their stability and the live-feed might be just as good.
