    CNBC just had a live chat with DJI's Eric Cheng and streaming (live) video from a Phantom he was flying in San Francisco. It was a well done piece with mostly positive remarks and comments from the reporters interviewing him. The $8 billion valuation puts it higher than GoPro. I will look at some point to find a link, but you may want to see if it's on CNBC's web site.

    Its easy to find by Google.
    Thanks for that.

    Recent articles now suggest a valuation of $10B!!

    $8B was based on Accel partners investment of $75M. $10B is on a future as yet unclosed round so not quite as solid. Curious to be doing back to back rounds.

    Is DJI a publicly traded company? I don't believe it is.
