This week, DJI has made a pretty significant change to the process of buying and activating its drones. Going forward, DJI drones will be severely limited in functionality until buyers register them with the company.
This changes comes only days after US courts ruled that the FAA could not compel non-commercial drone users to register them with the FAA. As a result, DJI has stepped in to make sure unregistered drones can't do much.
The restrictions include a height limit of 98 feet, a radius of 164 feet, and the live video feed will be disabled.
