GoPro is to relaunch its troubled Karma drone later in 2017, the firm has told press at the CES show in Las Vegas.
Set to fend off a lawsuit alleging investor deception, the Karma drone faced a huge recall shortly after its launch into the market following a string of in flight power losses causing the unit to fall out of the sky.
Originally hitting the market in September 2016, the $799 drone sold around 2,500 units.
The company’s poor string of luck has forced a layoff of 15% of the global workforce as the business restructures ahead of a hoped return to profit. The Entertainment division has also now closed.
