DJI gives your drone video to government?


"Chinese-made drones may be sending sensitive flight data to their manufacturers in China, where it can be accessed by the government there, the US Department of Homeland Security warned in an alert issued Monday obtained by CNN. The drones are a 'potential risk to an organization's information,' the alert from DHS's Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency states."

Well, duh.  You know, I hope, as a DJI user that your flight information and your videos are kept by DJI.  It's not a very big step in China for a company to share such information with the government.

As a Spark user, I realize this but figure my videos and flights would just be noise to any government snoops.
