GoPro launched its much-awaited Karma drone last year but the company had to recall the drone prior to the lucrative holiday shopping season because some units just fell out of the sky. It decided to recall each and every unit to fix the problem and hopefully have its first drone back out on the market by the new year. If you’ve been meaning to pick one up, rejoice, because you can now buy GoPro Karma drone once again starting today.
GoPro hinted last month that it would say more about the Karma drone’s return by February. Instead of saying something about it, the company has decided to offer it once again for customers on the first day of February.
You can buy GoPro Karma drone starting today from the company’s online store as well as select retailers. Customers in places other than the United States will have to wait as GoPro says that its drone will be available later this spring in other markets.
The company says that it spent thousands of hours testing the Karma drone after making several improvements to ensure that it doesn’t suffer the same failure again. It needed a change in the battery clasp mechanism to fix the problem that caused many Karma drones to lose power mid-air.
If you expected the company to offer a discount on the Karma drone because of all the time it has made prospective customers wait, you’d be wrong, because it’s still selling the drone for its original retail price.
