Another product recalls also rang in 2016 in addition to that of Note 7 was the drone Karma GoPro, which began to be withdrawn from stores in November for problems that could suffer in midair related to energy. Now, three months later and as was rumored last month, GoPro claims to have solved and put back on sale Karma.
While not all units suffered this damage, the manufacturer decided to withdraw all units of both physical stores as those already sold reimbursing the amount (which at that time amounted to about 2,500 units shipped), also eliminating Store on-line. Now the Karma Drone comes back maintaining the prices it had previously.
A small problem that required a great solution
The manufacturer reported at the time that the number of units affected was rather low, but still decided to remove them all. Another pothole after the company was experiencing a severe drop in bag and preceded financial results not too encouraging for 2015 and the announcement of the dismissal of 7% of its workforce.
Perhaps the bad news has ended or at least have taken a truce for the company, because as we said from GoPro report that the new units will go with a new battery holder (which determined that was causing the problem), returning to his distribution. GoPro CEO Nick Woodman, explained in The Verge on this issue, saying that what happened will not stop making drones.
We are somewhat ashamed that [the problem] was as basic as the holding of the battery. [...] There are great things to come in the Karma line.
Yes, they make it turn slowly and begin the moment only by the United States, ensuring that they will have sales internationally in spring (without giving specific dates or data on locations). As we said, prices are maintained and for this country Karma is available from $ 799 without cameras or for $ 1,099 with GoPro Hero 5.
