That being said, DJI is headquartered in Shenzhen, the silicon valley of China with multiple offices in Hong Kong, Japan, South Korea, Germany and the Netherlands. Their technology has mapped almost the entire world through drone flights and extracted data from the owners of the drones. This data is being used for Belt and Road initiatives meant for Huawei’s 5G network.
China Military Use
The data of commercial properties, private homes, people’s faces, body structure and behavior get extracted by the Chinese government which transfer the data to their military. A company can claim they are privately owned. Yet, they are subject to the Chinese military and government control. Any CEO or owner can be forced out, and assets taken over at any time by China’s Regime. Even if they are not taken over, they are subject to mandates, influence and social engineering at the behest of the Chinese regime. The U.S government and DoD sent notice warning Americans of the risks of using DJI. They also banned DJI drones from military complexes due to espionage risks from China.
Banning DJI Drones in U.S by Executive Order

President Trump and the U.S administration should ban DJI drones under national security threats to the Homeland, espionage and extraction of your private family data. The Dangers of DJI drones were published in the book Artificial Intelligence Dangers to Humanity.
