GoPro to release consumer drones late next year

Parrot Mini Drone

A new report from The Wall Street Journal indicates that GoPro is currently developing multi-rotor helicopter drones outfitted with high-definition cameras for commercial sale. Few specific details are known about the drones themselves beyond an aggressive price range between $500 and $1000, and a likelihood that the drones’ cameras will be similar to the company’s Hero series.

The Wall Street Journal expects the drones to be released late next year. While it is likely that the drones will come to Canada, there’s no way of knowing yet if recent guidelines implemented by Transport Canada will affect the release.
