GoPro Reportedly Developing Consumer Video Drones for Sale in Late 2015

Popular action camera producer GoPro will reportedly be branching out into the world of consumer UAVs according to sources at The Wall Street Journal. There aren’t too many details about the plan at the moment, but the company, which is reportedly planning to debut the high-definition camera-sporting multirotor quadcopters in late 2015, could be looking to compete directly with drone makers who have begun to produce their own cameras.

GoPro may be hedging against a business it could be losing; the world’s biggest consumer drone maker, SZ DJI Technology Co. of China, recently started selling devices that come with its own in-house cameras. Other drone makers could stop supporting GoPro devices if they are competing head-to-head with the camera maker.
