GoPro recalls nearly 2,500 units of new ‘Karma’ drone

In a Tuesday announcement, action-camera manufacturer GoPro Inc. has revealed that nearly 2,500 units of the company's new 'Karma' drone are being recalled because of reports that a few units lost power during flight.

The new Karma drones being recalled by GoPro were launched barely two weeks back.

According to a statement released by GoPro, the company is recalling Karma drones after having discovered that some of the units of the drone were experiencing loss of power during operation.

However, GoPro has also asserted alongside that there have been no reports of any injuries or property damage caused by the recalled Karma drones.

In announcing the recall of Karma drones, GoPro said that refunds for the nearly 2,500 Karma drones which the company has sold since launch will be issued to the owners of the drones. However, the company will, as of now, not offer any replacement units for the recalled drones. For a full refund, Karma owners can directly return their drones to GoPro, or to the place of purchase.

GoPro also said that it is hopeful of resuming the shipments of the Karma drone in the near future, once the issues leading to the recall of the drone are resolved.
