GoPro Karma vs. DJI Mavic Pro

DJI have just made their eagerly awaited announcement revealing the DJI Mavic Pro which is akin to the GoPro Karma which was unveiled last week, however the Mavic is tiny!

Being clear competitors by design, I’ve compiled a comparison of specifications and details between these new highly portable quadcopter drones. I’ve just put an order straight in for one of these : ) Which one tickles your fancy? hit me up in the comments below.
