Top Drones that Carry GoPro Cameras

In the dronesphere today, the ability of a drone to shoot footages of the highest possible quality has become of paramount importance. In a bid to achieve the best possible photo and video quality, manufacturers of these UAVs opt for the most advanced cameras and one of the very best in the industry is the GoPro. Without wasting time, let’s consider some of the top drones which use the GoPro.

DJI Phantom 2 Quadcopter drone test

DJI Phantom 2 Quadcopter

DJI is to the drone industry what Michael Jackson was to the pop music industry. A giant from every definition, DJI continues to dominate the market with breathtaking designs and innovations. As it is with DJI’s drones, the Phantom 2 is relatively expensive when compared to its competition from other manufacturers. However, the quality you get from spending about $400 on this drone may be worth the while.

It comes with a Zenmuse gimbal and is billed as Ready to Fly (RTF). Some of the other interesting features of this drone are as follows:

  • Battery that lasts long
  • 25 whopping minutes of flight time
  • Impressive stability in air
  • Ability to safely and automatically return to home
  • Rotor system has many functions
  • Easy to replace batteries
  • Easy to tighten its propellers
  • Impressive flight modes for its price


Yuneec Typhoon G Quadcopter drone test

Pretty much all drone manufacturers in the industry are struggling under the shadows of DJI – the biggest and most dominant name in the industry. However, Yuneec, together with 3DR is giving DJI a run for its money. At the time of release, the Typhoon H and Typhoon G really took this drone war to a new level.

In addition to GoPro compatibility, the Typhoon G quad has the following features:

  • A 3-axis gimbal for more flexible videography
  • Flight time of up to 20 minutes
  • Performance in range of 400 m
  • Live video feed
  • Comes Ready To Fly (RTF)


GoPro Karma Drone test

GoPro Karma Drone

For a drone that goes by the name GoPro Karma Drone, it will be foolish of its manufacturers do not give it the ability to carry GoPro cameras. Barring its erratic falls from the sky in months back – just shortly after its release – it may well be the drone of first choice as long as drones with GoPro are concerned. The manufacturers have fixed this blooper, and the drone is now okay. Consider some of its features.

  • Can fly as fast as 35 mph
  • Can go as far as 3280ft
  • Can fly as high as 14,500ft
  • Can resist wind speed up to 22mph
  • Crisp video recording
  • Stable flying and video capturing


3DR Solo Quadcopter drone test

3DR Solo Quadcopter

Are you thinking about the legendary Han Solo as portrayed by Harrison Ford in the Star Wars franchise? Well, the 3DR solo is not too different from the man and the movie. Considered a wonder by many, loved by more and well-rated by most people, the 3DR Solo is a giant in the industry. Most of its acclaim comes from the relative popularity of manufacturer – the 3DR. But there I no denying the interesting features of this GoPro enabled drone as you shall soon see.

  • Can synchronize with HERO3, HERO3+ and Hero4.
  • Looks very beautiful and sleek.
  • Allows for computer-assisted Shots
  • HD video streaming at distances up to 800 meters
  • Has many intelligent flight modes
  • Maximum of 25 minutes flight time
  • 55 mph maximum speed of flight
  • Has range of approximately 5 miles


AIRDOG drone test


Think of this drone like a loyal dog that does many things you want it to do even without giving it much instructions. This is pretty much what this drone does. Powered by a GoPro camera,

The Airdog claims to be the only GoPro drone built for action sports and I can see how this makes sense. When the other competing drones have a big controller and are more meant to be piloted by you, the Airdog is pretty much like a dog – it follows you around and doesn`t require a pilot. A mostly autopilot kind of drone, it finds many use in sports and the hand of beginners. Some of its other interesting features are as follows:

  • Follows your every move
  • Return to home function if battery is low
  • Small, compact remote controller
  • Has filters which make it never lose track of you
  • Foldable and portable
  • Built to avoid ground collision
  • Can also sync with Hero3, Hero + etc
