The AirDog was something of a Kickstarter sensation and a camera drone project that found massive success.
While the existence of a GoPro drone is just a rumour of course, it seems a natural progression for the company.
And thanks mainly to the company’s IPO, it can fool around with the fresh wad of investment it now has.
The GoPro drones will allegedly release to consumers in 2015, but will be see these drones in South Africa next year? It seems unlikely.
