I just read a story which claims DHS is fear mongering about Chinese drone manufacturers stealing date. CNN mentions DJI and suggests it is the drone company DHS suspects. Now, I'm thinking this is total B.S. and CNN only took info from some anonymous source. How would the Chinese or anybody else get to DJI or Yuneec drone data without acquiring/intercepting signals between drones and controllers? Aren't these drones using WiFi for both drone and image control? If it's possible to listen in on drone communications, where would it happen, on a router, cellular app? Here's the CNN story:
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.
