A few years ago consumer drones looked like a sure thing, something action camera maker GoPro couldn’t resist getting into. Now just weeks after launching, GoPro is recalling its Karma drone.
There are numerous videos circling the internet show the drone plummeting from midair, due to an apparent power failure.
There is no official word what is exactly wrong with the Karma or when it can be fixed. These issues along with the fact that competitor DJI slashing prices—nearly 70% in the last nine months—it is going to be very hard for GoPro to make any headway in the consumer drone market.
