Action camera firm GoPro has recalled its new drone after reports of power failures.

The company said there had been a “small number of cases” of the drone malfunctioning during flight.

GoPro said it would rectify the problem and put the Karma drone back on sale once the issue was resolved. Anyone who has bought the $799 (£646) drone can get a full refund, it said.

GoPro launched the Karma in September along with two new cameras.

The cameras are not affected by the recall, the company said on Tuesday.

GoPro issued the recall notice just as polls began to close in the US presidential election - giving rise to accusations the company was seeking to bury the news.

Instructions for people who bought the drone have been posted on the GoPro website.
