The action-camera maker last week said it is recalling its new Karma drone after a few units lost power during flight. GoPro said no injuries or property damage have been reported.

GoPro said it will issue refunds for the 2,500 drones it has sold since its launch two weeks ago, and that it isn’t offering replacements. The company didn’t say what caused the power loss.

GoPro said it is working “in close coordination” with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and the Federal Aviation Administration on its recall.

The CPSC said that it doesn’t regulate consumer drone recalls, according to a spokesman for the agency. The CPSC instructed GoPro to proceed with its recall, according to a GoPro spokesman.
