The action-camera specialist has seen huge growth in a few short years, but the company is finding it very hard to maintain.

GoPro (GPRO 0.54%) has seen its revenue skyrocket from just $64 million in 2010 to $1.6 billion in 2015, thanks to the company's popular line of action cameras. But lately, GoPro has faced a few missteps, including poor sales of some of its recent devices and a painfully slow move into new revenue streams. 

As a result, investors have seen GoPro's stock plummet more than 70% over the past 12 months. But GoPro isn't finished yet. The company knows it needs to start making money from user-generated videos, and could see a boost in revenue once it enters the drone market.
