Drones You Can Attach a GoPro To
You’ve heard about the GoPro camera. Maybe you even have a GoPro. You’ve seen the incredible action that a GoPro can capture: from ocean diving excursions to mountain cycling adventures to parachuting feats. With all that the GoPro camera can accomplish, you’re probably going to want to get in on the action.
Most quality drones come with a mount so that you can attach the camera that most drone flyers swear by. Be aware that not all drones come with a mount so it is important to make sure that yours does before you buy your new drone and camera separately. Some drones are made with mounts specifically designed for a GoPro camera. 3DR is one such company that makes all of their drones with a GoPro in mind.
Here are a few drones that you can attach a GoPro to:
3DR IRIS+ has a camera mount perfectly compatible with the GoPro cameras. And it has a 2-axis gimbal that keeps the camera steady at all times. When buying the IRIS, you have the option of buying the GoPro Hero 4 Silver with it. Most other drone dealers do not have this option so you often have to buy the camera separately through GoPro or another camera dealer.
DJI Phantom 2has a Zenmuse gimbal available that is sophisticated and perfect for any shot. You do have to install the gimbal yourself but this is an easy process and well worth the effort.
Walkera QR X350 Pro has a camera mount that is pretty much the same as the Blade 350, and you can even get it for around the same place depending on where you buy it from.
Blade 350 QX2 AP also comes with a GoPro camera mount. It isn’t fancy but it will get the job done and keep your camera steady. The price is the big bonus of the Blade 350 at only around $300.
Even if the drone doesn’t come with a mount, you can get a mount from GoPro itself though most of the mounts they have are meant to be used for activities other than drone flying. Plus getting an extra mount and camera in addition to getting a drone can end up costing you more money than you need, or want, to spend. It’s much better to just get a drone that can already hold a GoPro.
Once you find a drone that you can attach a GoPro to, you need to figure out which GoPro camera you want to get. There are a few different kinds, but the Hero 4 Black is the newest and most popular one out for drones. It is a 4k camera that gives you clear shots and even slow-motion playback. There are several amazing features that let you take impossible shots. You can get 12 MP burst shots at 30 frames a second. Or you can take time-lapse shots. You can stream photo and video live to your mobile device through built-in Wi-Fi. And you can control your camera up to 600 feet away. One way or another, you really don’t want to miss out on great GoPro filming.
