I found several articles on the Internet claiming that DJI drones are spying on us for the Chinese government.
DJI denies.
Fake news or something to be concerned about?

For example:
https://www.techspot.com/news/72 ... infrastructure.html
https://www.engadget.com/2017/11 ... rones-spying-china/
https://petapixel.com/2017/11/30 ... -says-claim-insane/

I would be surprised if it was just DJI to "see what we are doing"!
At least someone can see beauty and great sceneries!

Probably Apple, CISCO, Google, Huawei, Microsoft, Qualcomm, etc. are also spying on us...

Spying on what exactly? - some cows and farm fields or may be a golf course if you're really daring. I think the Chinese government has more important things to do like manage a $20trillion economy and a billion citizens. I'm sure the images they already have from space are slightly more sophisticated than a Mavic.

It's mostly data mining, and mostly all DJI users aggregated - except for a few of you who have something to hide. You can download wireshark and follow the white rabbit if you want to be certain.

Yes, they are but only if you give them access. Already if you stay offline while flying makes a huge difference. And there are ways to block the data mining that they are doing if you feel concerned.

Hi sir, thank you for bringing us the attention. I need to clarify here, DJI will not access your data unless the users needed to. DJI does not send data on DJI cloud servers to the Chinese government. Nor does it allow access to such data by the Chinese government. Thank you again for your support.

Hi Thor,
Don't shoot the messenger!
I only mentioned the articles that I found on the Internet regarding this subject.

No spying needed. Just check out my YouTube channel for yet another circle quickshot of yet another church. I just bought the best value drone available. Loving my M4P + G3 + RCM3 + RC2 setup.
