GoPro Karma & Gimbal Test

A pretty good test of the gimbal and image stabilization in the Hero5 (conducted by someone not connected to GoPro) begins at 6:50 in this video. After that he shows what he can do with it without reading or receiving any instruction at all. And then he proceeds to test it over the Hudson River!
