Chinese drones or American drones?

The large-scale aerial occupation of drones has become a nightmare for many people, even if they are only flying as a hobby. On the other hand, the US bill seeks to ban Chinese-made drones. Some senators have proposed legislation to limit the presence of foreign-produced drones in the United States. In addition to China, the bill would prohibit the FAA from buying or using drones made in Russia, Iran, North Korea, Venezuela and Cuba.

Should I still buy Chinese drones?

Drones first originated from China's DJI drone brand. DJI drones are well-known at home and abroad. For the ban on drones made in China, DJI drones will be the first object to be sanctioned.

But at the same time, DJI is already one of the largest drone manufacturers in the world, providing an important role for aviation research, aviation workforce development, community and technical college small drone system technology training, and so on. Abandoning DJI drones and Chinese drones will have a negative effect on the technological innovation of U.S. drones.

As of now, there are still a large number of Chinese drones for sale, and drones Autel and DJI have 70% market share in the local government market in Florida, New Jersey, New York and Washington, DC, according to US police and state police data. , state and local agencies have registered thousands of Chinese aircraft from companies such as Autel and DJI.

What has the development of drones brought about?

Drones have the potential to transform key industries and every aspect of our society – from farming to emergency services to deliveries and more. With the increasing adoption of this technology, part of the U.S. Congress has begun to worry about the security of drone data, fearing that every picture, video and data set of drones will be monitored, posing a threat to national security.

Fear of spying by Chinese drones is nothing but guesswork and assumptions, DJI and Autel products are safe and operators have full control over the data collected by the devices and can choose whether they want to upload the information to their servers.

Some U.S. lawmakers are undoubtedly radical about the threat of drones, which is not conducive to the development of drone technology. Currently, DJI and Autel Robotics are still major players in supplying drones to US police departments and state governments for patrols, catching criminals, search and rescue operations, and more.

Generally speaking, both Chinese and American drones have certain advantages in technology and performance. Which drone to choose depends on specific application needs and personal preference. No matter which drone you choose, remember to follow the regulations and operate safely to ensure that it will not bring harm to others and the environment.
