    I’m certainly not a drone owner operator, and as much as I’ll avoid buying Chinese made and/or sourced products, there will be situations where it can’t be avoided.

    I just recently heard about Chinese drones reporting data back home, and found it interesting. Surely drones are only one of many Chinese products spying on us. It feels like they’ve played the ultimate Trojan horse campaign.

    Ya drones are one of those industries that are so fully dominated by the Chinese, it is tough to find a product not made by them.

    Like you said, I'm sure most Chinese companies spy since I think it is required they share whatever the Chinese government requests.

    I doubt they have much of a choice about keeping the data they confidential.

    Recreational probably. I can see possible commercial. I looked at the Part 107 and it looks fairly easy to get if Im in the mood for a test or two and spend money.

    Everything is run through china telecom which is technically a "publicly traded" corporate but come on, its china. They monitor all that shit, further there are no purely public companies in china and they all have some level of involvement with the government. If you want to do business in china they will have access to all of your data.

    My company just did a gigantic roll out there right before the 'rona hit, the amount of hoops the ccp makes you jump through in order to do anything is ridiculous.

    Yup new update helped a little with that. I live on LI Airports everywhere, I know the struggle.

    So bought a race wheel yesterday, loving it... got tapped in to go back to work Monday. So much for my dreams of being a professional racing driver. That government teet was so tasty too.
