Multi-Rotor GoPro Drone To Be Unveiled at CES 2015
GoPro is going airborne. New GoPro drone product to be announced at the 2015 Consumer Electronics Show.
GoPro plans to dive into the consumer drone market and launch it’s own drone line sometime in 2015. It was recently announced that GoPro would present their newest product at the J.P. Morgan Tech Forum at CES 2015 on Jan. 6th in Las Vegas. Initial reports state the new GoPro drone will retail for between $500 – $1000.
Early indications suggest this is a multi-rotor drone possibly similar to the Chinese DJI S1000. GoPro drives significant revenue from the sale of their accessories, so entry into this product category seems like a logical step for the company to take.
DJI’s dual operator Inspire drone [click for larger view]: Surely, GoPro’s launch into the burgeoning consumer drone market will effect other players in the space. DJI recently launched a drone product with it’s own camera (the Inspire), but GoPro’s dominance in both the consumer and professional video production markets may make it extremely difficult for others to compete.
Is it a winner takes all consumer drone market? We’re curious to see.
