GoPro is recalling 2,500 of its recently launched Karma drones. How many have they put up into the market? 2,500! So basically, they are recalling all Karma drones.

GoPro is now working with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission for the recall. And there are some customers who refuse to get rid their Karma units, just like some people refused to give up their Samsung Galaxy Note7s.
