With X-craft landing 6 investors on Shark Tank and UAS Magazine reporting that they're thriving following their appearance, why is an Indiegogo campaign being launched? 

I don't know if that comes across as a respectfully asked question or not, but I feel like I need to say that I'm not trying to be disrespectful.

I don't think it's the same company?

from their website:

X-craft has a special company mandate for environmental and humanitarian missions. X-craft is the architect of the Rescue Robotics project, a system that brings rapid response to any Emergency Event.

As Quadzimodo says: Hilarious

Obviously not the same company :)

Let's not be too hard on them.  It's a valiant effort, and a good cause.

X-craft was incorporated in 2010, its a New Zealand company that develops and operates a whole range of UAVs in a wide variety of roles, for a wide range of customers. It has absolutely no links to xCraft of Ohio (2014) who develop the tail sitter, other than a similar name.
