Hello everyone. I want to apologize for this drop being cancelled. I represent the Fotopro USA office and our supplier in China changed their agreement with us and this specific SKU was no longer available to us. I'm very sorry for the inconvenience this has caused! I know many of you were eager to get these tripods. We have other models that will be made available through other drops. Other drops will not be affected by this.
In light of the manufacturer bailing out on this drop. Is it safe to assume that they might do the same for the other Fotopro tripods?

We only have the X-4CN tripod currently live and we will be able to fulfill this drop.
TofuBox
No, other drops should not be affected. The issue we had was specific to certain tripod models. I'm sorry for the inconvenience.
Why only orange?

How small exactly is it when folded down?

Cool. Do you know if it has spiked feet under the rubber caps on the legs ?
In my country (Hungary) these Fotopro tripods running under the brand called Rollei. You can also check it out on rollei.com. Maybe it makes sense for some of you.
The discussion for the carbon fiber version applies well to this tripod. If you are super price sensitive, you'll do fine with the aluminum version. If you can afford it, the upgrade to carbon fiber is worth it.
Nobody really is copying anybody, as you will see in the carbon fiber discussion. They are all getting this from the same manufacturer in China. They are rebranding the tripod, making some minor changes, but in general they are all the same tripod, born in the same place. Think of them as brothers and sisters, not copies. Any company or sales office telling you different is just trying to justify their product and possibly their price.
I have a tripod from Fotopro and I'd say that its build quality is pretty good, not like some cheap Chinese-made tripods out there. I'm not in this drop because my camera setup easily weighs more than 8 pounds but assuming the quality stays same as mine, $100 for this tripod seems to be a very nice price.
Sounds like a ripoff of a meFOTO tripod.
This looks like a clone of my tripod (Sirui T-05KX). I've used the Sirui and it works just fine. I've never heard of Fotopro so research it well if you want to buy it. Happy shopping.

Did a quick search... Not many reviews out there. Even the store page doesn't provide good stats. Do you know anything about this/ have owned it?

I've stated before that I've never heard of it so no. I'm just providing my two cents on a similar one that I know works. That's all.
