GoPro remove the Karma #drone
GoPro just issued a press release announcing the recall of the Karma drone. GoPro says a power loss malfunction is the reason for the recall.
“Safety is our top priority,” said GoPro Founder and CEO Nicholas Woodman in the released statment. “A very small number of Karma owners have reported incidents of power failure during operation. We have moved quickly to recall all units of Karma and provide a full refund while we investigate the issue. We are working in close coordination with both the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Federal Aviation Administration. We are very sorry to have inconvenienced our customers and we are taking every step to make the return and refund process as easy as possible.”
This couldn’t have came at a worse time for GoPro. Last week, the company announced it missed revenue expectations by 23% in its latest quarterly earnings.
