GoPro's Karma drone returns to the market three months after its retirement

Karma

GoPro's initial experience in the world of drones has not been as good as the company wanted. The company had high expectations for this device to add a new revenue stream beyond GoPro cameras, cameras that are seeing how the Chinese market has quickly eaten up their ground despite the difference in quality. After several months of research and development, GoPro launched Karma on the market, to try to compete with the DJI firm, one of the most representative in the world of drones. But within days of its launch, the company was forced to withdraw all models from the market.

Within a few days of its launch, many were the users who claimed that their quadcopters lost power when flying, which according to the company was due to a latch of some defective batteries, which it caused a loss of control over the drone. Fortunately, no accident related to this problem was found and the company withdrew from the market the 2.500 drones that it had put into circulation since last October 23, the date on which it reached the market, reimbursing them all the money.

Three months after its withdrawal from the market, lThe company has just re-launched the Karma drone, but this time with a redesigned battery latch. The price of this device remains the same as when it was launched: $ 799 for the camera version and $ 1.099 equipped with a GoPro from the manufacturer. Although we can also opt for a model without stabilizer for $ 599. For now, the GoPro Karma can be purchased in the United States through the company's website, Best Buy and Amazon. In a few weeks it should be available to everyone.
