    My two cents. Fly responsibly and avoid firmwares updates.

    *If you own a DJI Phantom drone, you can’t buzz the White House any more – or, indeed, fly it anywhere in the Washington DC area* Unless you have the older version of naza-m, and turn off wifi when connecting to it. (not that I recommend it, or would ever do it)

    *But it also reinforced the notion that people who ‘own’ these drones don’t really own anything at all* I'm a little confused by this part, are they saying we don't actually own our drones just because dji can supposedly change things without asking or something along those lines? :?

    if you do everything by the book then i can't see why dji putting the firmware in place "to make sure" your complying is an issue. It does make me worry about equipment that relies on updates & using other people servers etc, one day they can decide to give up on the project & your left with a useless piece of plastic & circuit board
