GoPro Karma returns to the market after being recalled due to problems in flight

GoPro Karma

Surely you will still remember how, after several weeks on the market, GoPro announced that their drone was being recalled Karma due to problems that he could suffer in mid-flight related, or at least that was commented, with energy problems. Undoubtedly a very well-known recall from the market due, above all, to the great publicity that GoPro gave to this new model and the several times that the project had to be delayed during its development. After all this, it seems that Karma has returned to the market.

It is true that, as announced in the official press release offered by GoPro, apparently not all units suffered from this energy problemEven so, the American company decided to withdraw all the units, reimbursing their owners the full amount they had paid for their drone at the different distributors. Now, after all this time, GoPro has put the Karma back on sale while maintaining the price it had previously.

GoPro announces that the Karma drone is back on sale now.

As a detail, tell you that one of the solutions that GoPro engineers and designers have found to solve the problem of their drone has been to develop and install a new battery holder, a part that apparently was the one that caused the problem. As you have commented Nick Woodman, GoPro CEO:

We are somewhat embarrassed that the problem was something as basic as the battery clamping. There are things to come on the Karma line.

If you are interested in getting a new GoPro Karma unit, already without design problems, tell you that, contrary to the last time it was on sale, this time the company has decided to take things very calmly. The idea is to start marketing it solely and for the moment in the United States and then start reaching other markets. Prices are maintained in such a way that, for this first market, a unit will be available from U.S. dollar 799 or by U.S. dollar 1.099 if you want it equipped with a GoPro Hero 5.
