Journalism used to be a respected profession... not so much any more.I guess some politicians gotta have a bogey man to instill fear among the populace and so I suppose drones from China is good enough for this Representative.
Didn't know that. I feel better just owning an american drone.Personally I am suspicious of anything to do with Chinese apps. A while back Kevin Finisterre proved DJI was collecting more than just flight data - your personal data from the device. You are forced to connect to DJI servers and agree to the terms in order to activate your DJI product. DJI gathered credit card and other personal information about you that was then shared on unsecure sites over the internet. I have no doubt the CCP will use what they can from this data, in 2017 the military wisely stopped the use of DJI drones.
To each his own I feel better connecting to an American drone.
Ditto.... but to most DJI owners that potential for credit card mis-use isn't a big enough threat not to accept DJI's T&C's.Didn't know that. I feel better just owning an american drone.
If you've not already tried it there's a program called NetGuard that allows you to control which app may send or receive data.Many do it unknowingly. On my iPad DJI GO4 constantly ran in the background, the app size grew and grew. If opened a banking app or photo album GO4 was running in the background.
I'm not a conspiracy theorist but if I have the choice I will chose to not share this information.
It's not good to get specific. But, if one said "everything" you'd be close.I really wonder what "specific" information supposedly being transmitted to China is that the US government is so worried about?
Every story that's been published NEVER mentions what that specific data is and why it's so harmful to US interests if it falls into the hands of terrorists?
