Three months ago, GoPro recalled their Karma portable drone due to a number of cases that caused them to fall out of the sky.
Since October 23rd, GoPro sold around 2,500 Karma units, all of which were recalled due to a power failure issue that caused the drone to literally fall out of the sky.
Back then, GoPro said that only a “small number of cases” were affected and that there had been no injuries or property damage had happened as result of this flaw, which was said to be a problem in the latch that holds the drone’s battery in place.
Today, GoPro announced that they have fixed the issue and they are now ready to sell the Karma once again.
The new versions of the Karma drone will feature a redesigned battery latch, which they said has gone through “extensive testing” in order to get the drone back in the hands of their customers.
Sadly, Karma is still only available in the US, and won’t be available until later this Spring.
In the meantime, you can pick up the drone from a number of US retailers for $599 without the stabiliser, $799 without the camera, or $1,099 for the complete version with a Hero 5 Black camera.
