GoPro to launch consumer drones


27 Nov, 2014 10:02 am

GoPro, the American maker of wearable cameras and video cameras, is in the process of developing consumer drones to expand on its product line in the coming months, according to a report from the Wall Street Journal.

The newspaper cites people familiar with the matter as saying that the company is intending to commercially introduce multi-rotor helicopters that carry their own high-definition cameras as early as next year.


According to those same sources, GoPro is aiming to offer its camera-carrying drones at a price of between $500 and $1,000.


The company already makes cameras that are used in a variety of commercially available mini-helicopters or drones but is now reportedly looking to expand on those efforts.


"I'm happy to let GoPro keep making great cameras and we'll keep making great copters," said Colin Guinn, senior vice president of sales at 3D Robotics Inc, which sells GoPro cameras with its drones.


Although it now appears as if Mr Gunn's company will soon have more direct competition from GoPro.
