DJI Releases Update To Prevent Its Drones From Flying In Syria And Iraq


Much has been said in recent months about how the ISIS he was using commercial drones, home-modified and equipped with explosives, to attack his enemies. Due to this and to prevent them from continuing to use their drones, the DJI company has just updated their devices so that these cannot fly in areas like Syria and Iraq.

If as a drone lover today you have a DJI unit at your disposal, tell you that this update it will not limit you in anything. Contrary to what we are used to, it has been launched without any prior warning, it activates a certain characteristic within all units that directly prevents them from flying in certain and extensive areas of Syria and Iraq.

DJI updates its drones so that they cannot fly over large tracts of land in Syria and Iraq.

Despite the fact that, as is quite understandable on the other hand, DJI has not wanted to give any kind of detail about this update, it is understood that they have made some kind of limitation of form very similar to how the so-called geofences act, which the company establishes by software in areas that they themselves understand have an air exclusion, such as airports or military airfields.

Even so, as confirmed in certain internet forums, the mean might not be entirely effective Since it is possible to deactivate this option in the preferences for verified users, although it is also true that it must be DJI itself that must grant this verification so, even so, it seems a solution, at least and for the moment, satisfactory.
