    China is the world's cheap outsourcing go to if you want to save money and don't care about quality.
    If even China is outsourcing the chip manufacturing for the Phantom 4...

    I'm hoping Qualcomm steps up the game with a digital video broadcast technology that competes with Lightbridge. They have the engineers and IP to do just that, easily. That would be an interesting horse race.

    As for Karma, I truly expect that craft to be another flop like Solo. Using a GoPro camera is so antiquated IMO. GoPro stock has taken a beating lately, a failure of Karma capturing significant market share may pose severe problems. They will need a game changing technology that leaps DJI be a sucess, and I can't even imagine what that would be.

    Everyone is trying to catch DJI, which is good. But it appears DJI is pulling away, assuming the P4 Lightbridge can still go 3 miles as advertised (I'm skeptical so far).
