No battery, no screen, no GPS, no fan, and no metal housing? There are a lot of things missing from the new GoPro Hero10 Black Bones. But again, the standard GoPro is not suitable for FPV drone acrobatics. So when GoPro sent us a review of the newly released Hero10 Black review unit for unmanned aerial vehicles, we recruited a drone pilot for FPV Reza Kurniawan to see if it is close to snuff – and you can see his flying skills fully featured in our video review above.
Kurniawan is the kind of non-pilot enthusiasm that inspired Bones to start with. He was removing Hero10 GoPros to reduce their weight from 154 grams to 33 grams. Demand for the so-called “naked GoPros” has become so high that it has become a service to its customers, and the new bones are the 54-gram version that GoPro sells.
Inside this camera is the same one you can find in Hero10 Black. It has the same GP2 processor, HyperSmooth 4.0 physical stability, and image sensor capable of recording 5.3K footage up to 60fps and 4K footage up to 120fps.
The $ 499’s ($ 399 subscription) is the first of its kind “derivative” GoPro cameras announced by the company during its latest acquisition, and the company tells us we will see special cameras targeting its own GoPro audience in the future, as well. But now, Kurniawan and the rest of the community can set up their own trading equipment. Or can they?
