WSJ: GoPro is reportedly launching a line of personal drones

GoPro HERO4 Black Edition

If you’ve ever done a black flip over a canyon of lava or just wanted to shoot video of your bike ride, you’ve used a GoPro. Now it seems the company made famous by adrenaline-fueled extreme-sports antics is getting into the drone business.

According to a report by The Wall Street Journal, GoPro will start selling personal drones sometime in 2015 for $500 to $1,000 according to sources. Most consumer drones are sold either with, or support the mounting of, a GoPro camera. By entering the market, GoPro is cutting out the middle man.


The company recently unveiled three new cameras. The GoPro HERO4 now comes in Black and Silver models and it introduced the HERO, its entry level camera. If GoPro does get into the drone space, expect one of the HERO4 cameras to be attached to its flying machine.
