GoPro is recalling the Karma drone after just 16 days on the market


GoPro just issued a press release announcing the recall of the Karma drone. It just happened to be while the United States is watching the election results roll in. The press release is below.

The Karma drone was on the market for 16 days and GoPro says it sold 2,500 drones thus far. All of them are recalled.

GoPro says a power lose malfunction is the reason for the recall though it won’t say how many experienced this error. We found several incidences where consumers experienced irregular behavior by their Karma but it’s hard to say the exact cause was power malfunctions.

Coincidently, I published our Karma review this morning after spending a couple weeks with the device. I found it a capable, predictable, but dated drone. The Karma is a great drone on its own, but lacks the latest features found in competitive drones.
