Action and wearable camera maker GoPro Inc has said it will recall about 2,500 of its Karma drones because they lost power while in use.

GoPro cited technical glitches for the recall, saying that camera units lost power during operation, Reuters reported. 

The company did not say how long it would take to resolve the issue, but added that it would resume shipments once it has, Reuters said. 

Meanwhile, it said it would refund the purchase price of drones that were bought since October 23, rather than replace them, Reuters reported. 

The Karma drones are GoPro's first commercial drones.
