Subject: RE: DJI drones may soon become totally banned in USA unless you do something NOW

Chebanse, IL.....

From what I understand, it's not a matter of anyone coming to get them, it's a matter of they won't be able to fly. So,  you can still look at them on  your shelf, but that's it. Not sure how all of it works yet, but those warning us are pretty sure it'll be catastrophic.

Following is copy/paste from UAV Coach website of which I subscribe:

The Countering CCP Drones Act, which would effectively ban DJI drones from use by anyone in the U.S., made progress toward becoming law this week. The measure was attached to the newest version of the NDAA (National Defense Authorization Act), receiving a 57-1 vote in a congressional committee to move forward to the House for a vote. The last NDAA included a ban on Chinese drones for use by the federal government, making it seem like the NDAA could be a successful vehicle for this ban, too.

If the law passes, DJI will be added to the FCC Covered List. Inclusion in that list would make it impossible to operate DJI drones in the U.S., since they would no longer have access to communication channels essential for drones to function. To put this plainly: Unlike the TikTok ban, which seems to have no teeth, the DJI ban could be real and make it so you can’t fly DJI drones in the U.S. First responders have written an open letter to the Senate Armed Services Committee voicing their strong opposition to the Countering CCP Drones Act. And we encourage you to do the same. If you feel like the ban is a bad idea, reach out to your representatives to share your opinion.

We believe in the right to consumer choice. It’s important that we fight to retain that choice in the face of such a sweeping ban, which will hurt the drone industry, including small business owners, and significantly reduce the options on the market.
