It's appearing in the news more today that the FAA is testing systems to locate YOU. They currently are saying it is to better locate those flying near airports. From there who knows what agencies will be coming to your Home Point location of and flight. As it is now, they have what they need to gather information from your aircraft while in flight. It should be no secret that dji is going to do their part which should explain why changes are being made with the R/C in this next update. Now before anyone goes into a panic attack, the fact is, if you are not doing anything wrong it should not matter. But my concern will be from those who either have the access to such equipment, or those with the knowledge and/or resources to also know your Home Point location. Say you have a half drunk that shows up with any kind of weapons to rain down havoc on you and your family should your Home Point been at your house. Maybe this half crazed guy thinks when you flew 150ft over his house that you were taking video or pic's of his wife while she out by the pool in their backyard. Anyway, I think you get the idea on how something like this could become dangerous in the wrong hands. Without spending a lot of time I was only able to come up with the video below that just came out which says something on the FAA and testing here below. There are some other areas of interest that you may need to know. Once you install this next update there will be NO turning back! You will NOT be able to load older firmware to remove it. If you know for sure that you don't want this update or not sure yet, make sure you at least uncheck the auto update on your app. They do have the ability to force updates on your stuff as long as you are internet connected. Otherwise it is impossible. This next part I do not have any experience on or with. It is some ares of interest that I came across over the past few days. I have read from a couple of different people that say they have experienced reduced distance with their aircraft. Even Inspire1 pilot's have said the speed of their aircraft was slowed down, and they're pissed. Now I do know that the sdk firmware has been out since the end of last month being used by many that use the non dji app's. It is the firmware version 1.05.0011 they are working with. As I say I don't know if there is a loss or not. With all the 5-8 mile video's posted I wouldn't be surprised. And the only real-true way of knowing will need to come from either seeing it written in the code, or from a device used that measures output from our R/C's. Btw, the 5-8 mile type video's should have never been posted in the public eye and needed to have been posted in a private forum where only certain member group's had access to. My overall thoughts on the coming changes are..... I plan to wait before downloading. Good Luck to all!
