Drones for personal use are nothing new. From delivering you a six-pack to your Amazon packages to your doorstep, the uses seem endless. But the fact that GoPro is whipping up their own model should shake up the action-footage market, some of which already relies on the brand's Hero4 action camera, like this 3D Robotics Solo. As a taste of what's in-store, GoPro has just released a short clip from their long-awaited drone, which also offers a glimpse of what their forthcoming quadcopter looks like. There's no details on cost, design, weight, or technical specifications, but it's clear there is an advanced stabilization system with their Hero4 cam, producing 1440p playback. The GoPro drone is expected to launch in the first half of 2016. The question is: Will the market be ready?
