GoPro cuts hundreds of jobs in drone division

GoPro is laying off between 200-300 employees within its aerial division, TechCrunch reports.

The company’s aerial division worked on the development of drone products and was responsible for creating the GoPro Karma drone.

According to the report, a letter sent out to impacted employees said the lay-offs formed part of a restructuring effort to better balance resources and business requirements.

GoPro’s Karma drone did not have a smooth launch – garnering mixed reviews and undergoing a mass recall when drones began unexpectedly failing in flight.

The Karma was returned to the market in February 2017, by which point DJI had released a duo of impressive portable drones, the Mavik Pro and Spark.
