Finally action-camera manufacturer GoPro brings its own drone to market. The quadrocopter should be published in 2016 and equipped with an HD camera, as used in the common GoPro Hero models.

GoPro CEO Nick Woodman mentioned the new product for the first time in late 2014 but now confirmed the remote controlled aircraft from his company. He also talked about a new kit that helps to capture video footage for virtual reality helmets.

While the drone market is growing and growing, industry watchers were awaiting GoPro’s move in this directions. The global market for consumer drones totalled $84m last year and is expected to top $300m by 2018.

Rumors are that they are aiming for a price tag between $500 and $1,000.
