    GoPro has reportedly ended talks with DJI to jointly produce a quadcopter drone, but the action camera maker is forging ahead with plans to release a remote-controlled flying vessel for its Hero4 cameras all on its own. DJI, a leading maker of commercial and recreational drones, figures turnabout is fair play, according to Fast Company — the Shenzhen, China-based firm is now developing its own action cameras to compete with GoPro on its own turf.

    GoPro last month released aerial footage captured by a drone the company described as a “developmental prototype of [its] quadcopter and stabilization system.” Now that flyer has a name: Karma. GoPro said this week that it plans to release its Karma drone in 2016.

    There’s no word on price or specs to date, but GoPro is attempting to build up some buzz for Karma with a giveaway promotion on its newly unveiled Karma website. Sign up for GoPro’s Karma news alerts and you’ll have a chance to win one of 100 drones the company is handing out at launch. Meanwhile, DJI CEO Frank Wang told Fast Company that negotiations with GoPro stalled over the divvying up of profits from the proposed drone the two companies wanted to build. GoPro wanted a two-thirds cut while DJI wanted that ratio reversed in its own favor, according to Wang.

    Creating a camera without fisheye would help GoPros stock.

    More like someone is stirring the pot in an attempt to try and get Apple interested. We know how that usually goes.

    Their PR around that thing they show nothing of is laughable.
