GoPro is recalling its Karma drone

As most of the world focuses on the US presidential election, GoPro just announced a recall of its first-ever drone, the $799 Karma. Approximately 2,500 Karma units sold since October 23rd (meaning all of them) are impacted. GoPro says “in a very small number of cases, Karma units lost power during operation.” Thus far, there have been no reports of injuries or property damage because of the defect.

Recalled Karma drones can be returned to GoPro or wherever they were purchased originally for a full refund. For now, the company won’t be offering any exchanges for a fixed model; you’ll have to wait until shipments resume “as soon as the issue is resolved.” GoPro executives addressed production issues affecting the Karma during last week’s earnings call, but didn’t mention any plans for a recall or the power issue at that point.
