After such rapid success —what’s next? According to the Wall Street Journal, GoPro has plans to create consumer drones.
GoPro already has a solid foothold in the drone market, being the camera of choice for several high-end drones already available not to mention this awesome July 4th video. The drone market has seen constant growth in recent months.
And while GoPro is putting itself in a highly competitive market with consumer drones, a Washington Post writer says the already uber popular brand won’t have any problems.
