If the drone is a self projectile it can be expensive as hell to be destroy everytime it found a target. It maybe cheap to produce but it can be expensive in the long run if they destroy several of these.

So.. US spends millions (billions?) on drone tech, for military and killing people; while DJI makes consumer drones to be enjoyed by the masses. *shrug*

And don't think for a minute that it won't have an impact on drone legislation over there. Imagine a terrorist with one of these (the Israelis don't care who they sell to) with some radioactive material wrapped around the explosive charge, flying it into Time Square. Won't be long before the US military are the only people with drones.

Not sure your point here. The drone in question is Israeli made. But since you went there: If you think DJI doesn't have a Military Drone division you are very naive.

Yeah, it’s Israeli, US is no different. You are getting close to where I am getting at. If some of the drone tech that US, Israel or any country that spends millions on, if they used some for consumer drones, DJI would have some real competition.

No, the French will have them too now that you bring it up!

"On Sept. 5, French Minister of the Armed Forces Florence Parly announced the long-awaited decision to arm French surveillance drones."

That's a huge leap for Israeli tech, seeing as how this was their prototype:
