GoPro recalled about 2,500 of its Karma drones just two weeks after they were put on the market. Customers were told to immediately stop using the product. It was discovered that some units lost power while flying. In a notice announcing the recall on its website, GoPro warned customers not to continue operating the drones even if they appear to be working fine, urging consumers to send back the devices for a full refund. The company is not offering replacement units. A very small number of Karma owners have reported incidents of power failure during operation, according to GoPro.
The recall does not apply to GoPro’s HERO5 Black and Karma Grip devices, although those who purchased a bundle package containing all three must return all the items to get a full refund, the company said. The U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) had not issued a recall notice for the product as of Nov. 9.
