Last week a super lightweight FPV drone camera was announced. Check out these GoPro reviews for an early glimpse at the Hero 10 Black Bones!

On the 12th of April, GoPro unveiled its latest creation – a camera built specifically for drones. If you didn’t realise there was a difference between regular drones and FPV drones, there most certainly is. Largely, it comes down to weight and speed. In order for FPV drones to maintain their niftiness, they need to be kept light.

Drone videographers had taken to cutting GoPros flagship camera, the Hero 10, in half. This was so it was light enough to film from whizzing UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles). Unsurprisingly, this wasn’t without its problems. Pilots still experienced issues with overheating, plus there was increased risk to damaging the camera.

Hearing this, GoPro said “enough!” In flies the Hero 10 Black Bones – a camera a mere third of the weight of the Hero 10, with almost all the same video capabilities. The lightweight camera is designed to be modified and tinkered with, a nod to the fact that FPV pilots are no strangers to a soldering iron. But, how does this little baby actually perform?

We’ve gathered some of the freshest GoPro reviews, taking the Hero 10 Black Bones out for a rigorous test fly. Check out the results for yourself!

Joey Helms

Joey Helms excitedly reviews GoPro’s lightest and slimmest camera ever. You may recognise this guy from the drone that was crashed into an erupting volcano. Now, he’s running through the specs of this new tiny camera and looking at just why it’s been so in demand before.

Peter McKinnon

Peter McKinnon visits his friend and experienced FPV pilot, Christoph to discuss the Bones camera from GoPro. Christoph remarks on how pleasing it is to be able to buy FPV focussed kit right out of the box – something that is becoming the norm now. However, don’t put your soldering iron away just yet! In this video you can watch Christoph put together the Bones camera with an FPV drone, before seeing how it flies.
