Is GoPro about to step into DJI’s turf with its own consumer drone? The Wall Street Journal thinks so…

 

 

Action camera maker GoPro's offerings have proven very popular with videographers looking to document some fairly extreme sports, but there's another market niche which has popped up over the last few years that the company may not have been anticipating.
