I don't get it. Pay now and get it in March 2016? By that time, there's no chance to dispute a credit card change.

Sounds too good to be true.

This doesn't offer any proof that this is a fraud, but I'd be cautious just in case:

Maybe they are getting a bulk order from DJI? Or it is a scam... Confused... There is no clarity in their site as to how they can make this happen.

www.indiegogo.com is a respected crowdfunding platform, however this campaign must be carefully analyzed before contributing.

I have been burned on more than one occasion from crowd-sourcing projects on Indiegogo. I have never had a campaign I supported totally implode on Kickstarter, although I think every one I have sponsored there except maybe two or three were late, and I certainly have received things that didn't live up to their claim, but I have had at least 3 projects totally disappear with my money on Indiegogo.

The last one was an ambient lighting rig for HDMI that turned out to be some a-hole scammer. I bought two "kits" and was completely stoked to hook them up, but never got them and later found out this guy was a notorious scammer on crowd funding sites. Unfortunately, many times it's too late to dispute the charges by the time you find out, so you get burned. It has gotten to the point that I just don't support Indiegogo campaigns any longer. It's a shame, because I love the feeling of supporting fledgling forward thinkers that push the boundaries.

You don't love the idea of supporting this guy's Ferrari?
