So registration will stop misuse? I don't think so . . .
Sounds like DJI is working a scam, a fraud. They sell you a machine then feed you crippleware. And how will they detect false information supplied against their demands? There are many reasons why registration is unwise these days, given the insecurity of many databases.
Hopefully some litigious American will hold DJI to account. Then, without doubt, some enterprising people will rework the software to render DJI crippleware ineffective.
And how will DJI accommodate fast changing legislation, as occurred recently in the USA? Where I live there are hundreds of 'airfields', still shown on maps, originally built by the Americans during their war in VietNam?
If all manufacturers adopted the short-sighted policies of DJI, vehicle drivers of all types would be crawling around at walking speed. Lawn movers wouldn't cut, knives would be blunted. Electricity would be limited to 48 volts. Then there are garage door openers and cell handsets - all used to trigger IEDs.
TATP is the terrorists explosive de jour m the full name is triacetone triperoxide - very easily formulated at home with commonly available materials. Common household chemicals sold at supermarkets can easily be repurposed for alternative uses. And DJI attitudes expect to deny women of peroxide. Good luck with that.
Owners should be expected to assume the responsibilities of ownership - not have them peremptorily imposed by the manufacturers trying to play Plod. Back to manufacturing DJI.
