    A little FYI – the Atti hack is quite old and pretty much work on all their recent drones (spark, air, Mavic pro) by remapping sport mode to Atti or tripod on the M2.

    I am commercial with a shoe string budget startup. Put me on the board. Large scale photogrammetry, but agriculture, photo/cinema, and started all as a hobby to help make music videos…I’ll represent properly

    I appreciate how you guys added a mic on Paul instead of using a shotgun mic for these Drone News. It sounds so much better.

    15:48 not true, only if the plane is equipped with ADS-B. Not all aircraft will be equipped. And why do I need to know of aircraft in Class A airspace (mostly commercial jets, 18000 to 60000ft) while flying a drone 400 ft and below? ADS-B is only required in controlled airspace. Not all manned aircraft. Class A, B, C, and some of Class E will require ADS-B. I live 5 miles from an airport, there are 1000 planes that are hanger there, there is no tower, so all of those planes do not require ADS-B, only the one that would fly into a controlled airspace.

    Question for the masses. What class of airspace do foreign trade zones have? Can you fly over a foreign trade zone? Is it restricted airspace? Just curious and couldn't find a definite answer on the interwebs. Thnx

    Do you think there will be a refreshed/updated Mavic 2 model this fall?

    I guess it is possible to turn your device to Airplane mode while your flying and feel more secure thinking your info isn’t being sent to China. But as soon as you turn airplane mode off and/or update your DJI Go 4 app, hasn’t the opportunity for data collection been turned back on? Let me know if I’m misunderstanding this but if you have the Go 4 app on an internet capable device it doesn’t matter if it’s connected when you fly, later it will be connected, correct?

    26:45 Abso-freak'n-lutely ……I never got an email from the FAA and I'm a registered hobbiest…………..I NEVER GOT AN EMAIL!!!!!!!!!!! I had to find out from Youtube, what a slap in the face. But at the same time……if I were to have called my airport Tower they "might" have told me about it. Right now we are having a natural disaster in our area and its all happening inside the 5 mile radius……and I can't drone any of it legally…..what I did get was outside the 5 miles and it was okay. Can't wait for the LAANC to go online for us.

    They (DJI) will land your drone now. Fly into the path way of a runway and ignore about 3 of those warnings of the "perimeter re-edged" warnings!" And it will auto land you with a 3 second countdown. Found that out the other day.

    I think it’s about money. DJI is standing in the way of an American company that wants a piece of the drone industry pie. That’s my theory.

    For me, my world of being able to fly just about anywhere in Los Angeles has been limited now to a handful of small parks in the entire city. I really don't see how this industry can grow going forward as it stands for the casual flyer anywhere but in the boonies with no airports within miles and miles, given everyone who wants to fly anywhere near major cities have basically been forced to become a part 107 pilot just to fly at all.

    My friends, the DJI prices are up SOLELY due to the unforeseen and abrupt end of the production of Phantom 4 series AND the DJI addicted public, who is in a panic to buy something they can't have.
    Supply and demand is pure economics 101.
    DJI is inflating their market without any tariff that could be in effect yet, by essentially doing nothing.

    I sold my P4's last week, with hundreds of flights on them, because I got more than what I paid for them. Just trying to help out.

    Now I can buy DJI's newest Mega Super Pro Advanced Plus 2.1 Ultimate Professional flying Something or other with a built in beer opener.

    ALPA (the Airline Pilots' Association) has a seat on the Drone Advisory Board – and it's probably safe to say that their primary mission, as they see it, is not to represent the interests of commercial drone service providers. AOPA has a seat, but is more likely focused on representing its General Aviation members rather than its newer (and fewer) remote pilot members. The AMA has a seat and their primary focus is to protect the interests of recreational remote pilots. When Part 107 operators form a remote pilots' association, can count their membership in the thousands, has elected officers, and lobbyists in DC, we may have a seat on the DAB too.

    While I don't believe the people responding to your survey represent the drone population as a whole its disheartening to hear that 75% of the respondents have no intention of following a rule they apparently don't agree with. No wonder government and industry see the need for further restrictions

    Let me say thank you once again for the Drone News feature weekly and especially the "video" version as I am one of your "Geriatric" fans/members that prefer to see and hear and not just hear your reports. As a "Geriatric" member of DroneU and someone who has been in the Micro-computer industry for almost 35 years, I am not at all surprised at ANY of the less than Ethical or seemingly less than reasonable business methodologies being foisted upon us by the Chinese. There are no real business rules in Chinese industry, just buyer beware.

    WT? c’on, turning off data access “airplane mode” is not safeguarding your data, you are just delaying it been sent. Pls, keep it factual to be useful, just the same way I can’t prove DJI is not slurping my data, I can’t prove it is not been sent…

    While I miss having ATTI mode that I regularly used on my P3P, I am not about to risk having my DJI Care invalidated by hacking my M2P. I feel like this warning should have been mentioned in the program.

    I don't understand why the FAA didn't just e-mail the new rules to anyone who registered a drone with them.

    DJI is recording your flights for the log. Many of us that fly for Public use i.e. fire, police, SAR, ES etc. use on-line logs that auto log our flights and coordinates. Also a great thing to stop much of the illegal flying. In this way the FAA can then fine and slow illegal flying.
