GoPro plans to relaunch Karma drone after first-round failure
It’ll cost you a pretty penny.
It will re-release the product after the first round of units was recalled. The action camera manufacturer said the initial batch of 2,500 devices experienced mechanical issues related to their batteries, causing them to fall out of the sky, thus, defeating the purpose of drone.
The GoPro Karma originally debuted in September 2016 and sold for $800. GoPro said the refresh is still undergoing testing to get it back up in the air and will provide more details in early February about a global launch.
The once-ubiquitous startup had a rough going last year. It laid off 15 percent of its staff after the Karma’s recall and saw steep revenue declines.
People have been mounting GoPros on drones for years now, so it only makes sense for the company to create an integrated solution for die-hard videographers. The company’s persistence only confirms how important this device is for them. Its success will surely have a significant impact on the overall health of the company going forward.
