1. DJI drones are very resistant to entering controlled airspace - or
even uncontrolled airport areas. see: "geofencing". This can be
over-ridden by the user (in two levels) - the later assuming that the
operation has been authorized.

2. The ability is not expected to be widely used except where there's a
genuine threat.

3. DJI and other companies welcome it. (Article). Why? They don't
want idiotic users giving the industry a bad name.

But of course you have to paint it as something it isn't. Pathetic par
for the course for RichA.

DJI would be better off resisting every new anti-drone law that comes
down the pipe. But, being Chinese they'd be used to being under control
of a government.


It's a good thing that the US is following other countries and regulate
private use of UAVs. don't wanna have one of those sneaking up me bedroom
window! But what does this have to do with photography?

android - I haven’t seen that name in months.

Have all your various bike accident injuries healed, and have you returned to
your old residence from your temporary one?

Not at all. What's bad for the image of the drone industry (idiots
flying where they should not) is bad for DJI. Their philosophy and
policy is very clear on this.

As usual you paint with distortion.

Here in the UK a few people are using drones deliver things to prisoners.


In Canada it's illegal to fly a drone (or any aircraft) within 1 NM of a
prison, laterally, and to a specific height MLS published on the charts
(800 - 1200 feet AGL is typical), unless one has written permission from
the prison authority (aircraft) and Transport Canada (drones).

(And yes, drugs and cell phones have been delivered by drones in Canada.
It's like criminals don't want to follow the rules or something...)

The arms seem to have heeled now but needs some pushups... I will, if all
goes according to plans make the 500m move back to me old quarters right
after the Roman New Year! The natives are friendly though so don't worry!
The EOS M has bee a good complement to the 1D2 the last year... :-))
