The GoPro Karma drone will be available in Malaysia from May 7 this year. The drone will retail for RM5,999 and it comes bundled with the HERO5 Black camera as well. The first 50 buyers will get free drone flying lessons organised by GoPro at Tadom Hills in Banting. The drone will also be available for purchase online at Lazada, Shopee and 11Street on the same day. You can experience the drone for yourself at the GoPro roadshow that will be held from May 24 to 28 in Mid Valley.
GoPro is finally entering the 360-degree camera game with their very own product and it’s called the GoPro Fusion…or at least I think they are. After seeing the coverage for GoPro’s new toy, it sounds more and more like vapourware to us.
Just as we thought the Karma is gone for good, GoPro’s first drone has returned and it’s ready to bite for a slice of the drone market. Announced in September last year, the Karma was later recalled due to power failures in mid-flight.
We reported earlier that GoPro’s fabled Karma drone was falling out of the sky, which is obviously terrible especially since the drone itself has received a lot of praise from critics. Yeah, it isn’t as good of a drone as something like the DJI Mavic Pro, but you’re getting a solid package with the Karma, Karma Grip and GoPro HERO5.
Well, if you’ve been eyeing a stabiliser for your brand new GoPro HERO5 before the drones started failing, the good news is that GoPro is now selling their Karma Grip standalone.
If you own a GoPro Karma or have placed an order for one, here’s some bad news. GoPro is announcing a full recall for its first-ever drone. This is due to a performance issue where the Karma may suddenly lose power in mid-flight.
The GoPro HERO5 Black and HERO5 Session was launched in Malaysia last week and we took some time to have a quick chat with GoPro’s Global Education senior manager Chris Naegele about what makes the new HERO5 cameras special.
We also got a quick sneak peak at their new Karma drone and it’s super awesome.
The Malaysian pricing for the latest GoPro HERO5 and HERO5 Session is finally revealed and you can buy them in stores next week. This comes just under 2 weeks from its recent global announcement.

Finally! GoPro has unveiled the successor to the HERO4 Black and Silver — the GoPro HERO5 Black. In a nutshell? It’s sort of like GoPro took the best of both HERO4s and combined them into a waterproof shell. Here are the details!
