Power problems: GoPro recalls all Karma drones

It's been a tough year for GoPro, after the Hero4 Session camera failed to live up to expectations and the markets continued to eat away at the company's stock price. The release of the GoPro Karma drone was expected to re-energize the company, who have now suffered another body blow as they have announced a recall for all the drones due to a loss of power during operation.

If you have purchased a GoPro Karma, you should head over to the web page GoPro has set up to explain the recall. The recall is very generous: you don't have to have a receipt, and you'll get a full refund for your product. Even if your Karma appears to be working fine, GoPro is encouraging all Karma owners to return the drone: the last thing GoPro probably wants is your drone plunging from the sky when you least expect it.
