German retailer MediaMarktSaturn removes DJI products from its website – sUAS News

DJI’s fence ability is tested by negative feedback and alleged hackers.

Both Ukrainian conflict sites use DJI.

The Ukrainian government has requested data from DJI on all of its equipment flying in Ukraine and a no-fly zone. MediaMarktSaturn’s website was flooded with negative comments after Ukrainian Vice President Mykhailo Fedorov called for the no-fly zone.

So much so that MediaMarktSaturn, a DJI partner, removed DJI products from its website.

To date, data sharing with Ukraine is put in the too harsh trash can by DJI.

I can’t help but think there have been many conversations around water coolers in government, military and aviation regulatory coolers around the world to decide exactly what companies like DJI will be able to register and license in the airspace of those countries.

Get out of the DJI fence.

DJI responded like this, some lost in translation I think.

Guidelines on products removed from the shelves of DJI partners under the attack of Marine

Last week, the social media accounts of DJI and its global partners were attacked by a concerted sweeping attack by the Navy, slandering DJI for its inappropriate behavior in the international situation, which caused problems for the operations of social media from many parties. The German distribution group MediaMarktSaturn, a partner of DJI for many years, is also among the victims of this cyber violence. Last Friday, they suspended sales of DJI drones in e-commerce and stores for security reasons. Regarding this incident, the two parties are still communicating and discussing.

We have repeatedly stated that all DJI products are designed for civilian use and cannot meet military specifications. It is completely wrong to accuse DJI of supporting war on overseas social platforms. Since DJI pioneered the civilian drone industry, this technology has not only benefited global image makers, but has also been widely used in agriculture, security, rescue, environmental protection. environment and other areas. More and more public service agencies are using drone technology to save lives and make society a better place. Additionally, DJI adheres to applicable laws and regulations globally, and the internal compliance team is comprised of experienced professionals to ensure that DJI’s business activities are fully compliant with international rules.

DJI will, as always, work with global partners to develop civilian drone technology and constantly iterate our products to better benefit society and serve production and people’s lives.
