GoPro Producing Drones
Company plans to start production of multirotor helicopters for consumers in 2015.
The drone is an unmanned aircraft in a light helicopter equipped with GoPro-cameras and controlled from a tablet computer or smartphone with a help of an app. To expand the area of usage of their multirotor helicopters (currently U.S. regulators allow non-commercial use), the company joined Small UAV Coalition, which fights against limitation on aerial photography.
It is expected that the drones will cost between $500 and $1,000, other products that are lower in price than the multirotors are DJI, Parrot and 3D Robotics, which use GoPro’s features as fitting elements.
