GoPro has some terrible news, and conveniently, it came as polling places around the US were starting to close.

DJI has owned the Western drone market for a while, and for a dang good reason. DJI makes fantastic drones with some of the most advanced features on the market.

If you get outside into the great outdoors, then you know GoPro. You probably also know about drones. You might even already have one. If you don't, then get ready to knock out two birds with one stone; GoPro has a drone. And new Hero action cameras to fit that drone, too. It'll be barely a month before you can get your hands on GoPro's brand new Karma drone, and two new Hero5 action cameras will be out even sooner.
