Help with a good drone for go pro!

New to drones but looking to get some good footage with my GoPro 7, not necessarily looking for a drone with a camera since I’ll be using the GoPro attached to drone. What’s a good drone (not crazy expensive) far as features
Go.. i want it to have the follow me feature and be able to return to starting location Incase something goes wrong or battery starts to die.

Hello @supersurf46116. The Karma drone has follow me feature through Auto Shot Paths . It returns to the location where the Controller is when you select the "Return to User" option. More landing options are described in this article

Re: Help with a good drone for go pro!

You will absolutely not find a better deal than the refurbished Karma Drone system. https://shop.gopro.com/accessories-3/refurbished-karma-drone/QKWXX-K01.html

As this will be your first drone, be sure to read through this entire post before flying (any drone) https://community.gopro.com/t5/Karma/PLEASE-READ-if-you-plan-to-fly/m-p/59970#/M8420

Hi @supersurf46116

 

Though GoPro has exited the drone market, we will still continue supporting Karma users/customers.

You may also check out other/stores channel for parts.

 

 

 

Thanks!
