GoPro recently released their first drone, the Karma. It's foldable and looks supremely awesome... so naturally it has now been recalled.
The company has issued word that they're hearing reports of power issues with the current crop of devices. Rather than risking the safety of consumers, they're insisting all of the drones be returned right away.
It is only said to be affecting a small number of units but the full recall has been issued anyway. The full FAQ says that a full refund will be offered when you return it, but you will have to include all extras and accessories. That means if you bought the pack with the Karma Grip and Hero 5 Black camera, they'll have to go back too.
The last couple of years have been tough on GoPro, with the failed launch of the original Session, job losses and a tumbling share price. Recalling thousands of units of their most expensive device to date is just going to make matters worse, and they'll have the problem of restoring customer confidence as well.
