It's no consolation for drone buyers, but it's good news for action camera fans.

No, you still can't buy GoPro's Karma drone in the wake of the recall, but you can get a taste of the technology that came in the box. GoPro has started selling the Karma Grip, the stabilization wand that takes the jitters out of your Hero5 Black or (with a $30 harness) Hero4 Black/Silver camera footage. Spend $300/£250 and you can capture a bike ride or snowboarding adventure without making your friends motion sick. There's a mounting ring to attach it to wearable accessories, too, so you don't have to give up one of your hands while you use it.

The accessory is available now in the US ("coming soon" to the UK), but be prepared to wait if you have a Hero5 Session. Its harness won't arrive until sometime in spring 2017, so you'll have to make do when documenting your winter expeditions. Just remember that you're not locked into the GoPro ecosystem if you want handheld stabilization, especially if you're willing to use someone else's cameras.
