GoPro back out of their drone exploits as the Karma flops. From drones falling out the sky, then to recalling all and then to flopping out of the market. Laying off hundreds is not a good sign for the new year.

Are GoPro on the way out because they have not diversified?

Chinese retailer JD.com is set to build upwards of 185 ‘drone airports’ throughout China’s more remote areas in order to deliver shipments quickly and efficiently.

The alarming headline belies the truth in which, more than likely, the drones will actually be used for surveillance, spotting and guidance, rather than direct conflict.
However, war, or the threat of war, always pushes the boundaries of technology to it’s limits so anything is possible.
DJI is offering a one million yuan reward ($145,000 / £113,000) for any information which will help catch pilots who have been operating their drones illegally near Chengdu Shuangliu International in China.
There have been several incidents in April which have totally disrupted airport operations and left thousands of passengers stranded by the delays.
DJI are obviously trying to protect their company name with this measure. However, it does bring into question why their Geofencing programming is not working to stop their own drones flying near airports such as this.
Geofencing is where the drone knows exactly where it is from multiple GPS signals and airports are meant to be pre-progammed into the UAVs to stop this issue.
