    GoPro’s anticipated drone gets delayed
    The way the article reads, business is so good they have decided to delay the Karma.
    Sounds like code for "we are having difficulty getting it sorted out."
    Lots of companies have experienced serious delays trying to get drone concepts ready for the market.
    Seems it's not as easy as people think it will be.

    .... what a shock ;-) By the time they get anything on the market they will be too far behind to compete...

    Same thing with all those drone prototypes floating around kickstarter and their ilk. Haven't seen a single one to market yet. Look at 3DR, a drone company, and their big idea fell completely apart and now all they have is a bunch of upset customers who waited months and then waited more to have a gimbal. As much as we crap on DJI, at least they haven't had the EPIC FAILS of most of their competitors. They let us test fly it for them!

    Kind of funny on the show Shark Tank they had a bidding war (went up to 1.5M) to get in on X-Crafts drones..... and clearly none of them new anything about what is already out there or FAA regulations or anything.... some of the Xcraft was only slightly unique while other ones were thye had were garbage if you ask me.

    XCraft Raises $1.5M from Shark Tank for Its Next Gen Camera Drones
