People who own a GoPro Karma drone are already able to remove its camera/gimbal, attach them to the included Karma Grip, and use them to shoot stabilized handheld footage. Owners of the similar DJI Mavic … well, they can't. PolarPro Filters is now offering what might be the next-best thing, however, in the form of the Katana DJI Mavic Tray.
Basically, the Katana is a set of nylon hand grips which the folded-down drone gets slung between. A smartphone mount on top of the device lets users utilize their phone's screen as a monitor, allowing them to control the drone's gimbal-stabilized camera, start/stop recording, and to see what it's seeing in real time – all via the DJI Mavic app, that is.
