GoPro has announced it is recalling its recently released drone, Karma. The company spent months trying to perfect the drone, but it seems it may have released the unmanned vehicle too soon. According to GoPro, it is already hearing reports of performance issues.
“GoPro is committed to providing our customers with great product experiences,” the company wrote. “To honor this commitment, we have recalled Karma until we resolve a performance issue related to a loss of power during operation. We plan to resume shipment of Karma once the issue is addressed.”
Karma is the company’s first drone, which it announced last year. The company announced the drone was ready to be released in September and started shipping in October. Karma is designed as a compact drone that provides high-quality aerial footage.
The recall does not include the HERO5 and Karma Grip, but if users purchased the drone as a bundle package, they must return everything. In addition, the company notes that even if your drone appears to be operating fine, all customers must immediately stop using it and return it. GoPro will provide a full refund and re-release the drone once it revolves any issues.
