The GoPro Karma was all the hype when announced. The promise of an accessible drone that is both portable and easy to function was amazing. It even made it to our list of the best drones available, but it seems it wasn’t as well-made as we all thought. The Karma was recalled soon after its launch due to power issues.

All users were asked to stop using their units and can return it for a full refund. But that’s not all customers are getting. The company has decided to throw in a free GoPro HERO5 camera to make up for your inconveniences and disappointments.

Dear customer,

You may have received an email from us last week announcing the recall of Karma.

As part of our refund and recall program, we are offering you a complimentary HERO5 Black upon return of your Karma with all accompanying parts and accessories. The camera will begin shipping mid-December. To initiate your reimbursement process and get your FREE HERO5 Black, please call 1-866-886-3001 or visit GoPro, as always, is committed to providing you with the best customer experiences.

Team GoPro

The team mentions the same offer in the return page’s FAQ section. This is one of the nicest offerings we have seen. The GoPro Hero5 Black is the nicest camera in the company’s current line-up. Not to mention it retails for $399.99. GoPro Karma owners are getting it for free!
