If you’ve invested in a GoPro Karma it’s time to get online and send it back. It seems that the odd drone has a power issue necessitating the recall of all the 2500 drones that have been sold since the 26th October.

We know that some of our Outdoor Revival readers have purchased the Karma Drone and Understandably GoPro are worried about safety and have issued the recall so we thought we’d do our bit in letting you know about it.

There’s no exchanging your Karma; they’re asking for all drones to be returned and they will issue refunds for each one. When they’ve resolved the issue, the Karma drone will be made available again.  For now click on the link below and get the information you need directly from them.

 

To be honest, it’s a good move from GoPro, they’re being proactive and dealing with the issue, hats off to them.
