One is understandably reluctant to use the word “recall” right now, but GoPro has been forced to issue one for its recently announced Karma drone.

According to the company, a small number of models lose power mid-flight.

“Safety is our top priority,” CEO Nicholas Woodman said in a statement. “A very small number of Karma owners have reported incidents of power failure during operation. We have moved quickly to recall all units of Karma and provide a full refund while we investigate the issue. We are working in close coordination with both the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission and Federal Aviation Administration. We are very sorry to have inconvenienced our customers and we are taking every step to make the return and refund process as easy as possible.”

Even if your Karma is working normally, GoPro still wants it. You can get more details on the recall here.
