Subject: Trouble ahead for DJI drones...in the U.S.



Chebanse, IL.....

This is NOT a political post. Please do your best to comment only on the subject and not the people involved. Save that for the TPP page.

The following is copy/paste from the "UAV Coach website". Could be big trouble for DJI drones in the USA. No big deal you say? Think DJI T30, T40, & T50. 

Are you tired of hearing about Chinese drone bans? Same here. But they keep coming, and it’s important to understand what each one proposes and how it might impact the U.S. drone industry. A big one that recently passed is the new NDAA (National Defense Authorization Act), which imposes a ban on Chinese drones for all federal agencies. But a new bill being considered by Congress would have an even bigger impact, making it so almost no one in the U.S. could use DJI drones. You heard that right—no one.

 

The bill is called the Countering CCP Drones Act and it’s been put forward by New York Representative Elise Stefanik. If passed, it will add DJI to the FCC’s Covered List, thus barring DJI from operating on U.S. communications infrastructure—which will make it almost impossible to use DJI drones. And it looks like it may actually become law. The Act has already advanced through committee, and seems to be gathering steam.
