DJI to continue selling drones in the US despite blacklist

The year is far from over and, as far as the current US government is concerned, there is still plenty of time for actions that have long-lasting effects. One of those is expanding the US' notorious "Entity List" to include not just SMIC, China's largest chipmaker, but also, surprisingly, popular drone company DJI.

DJI event sure to bring Mavic and/or Mini action this week

Today DJI revealed that they'd be running an event this week where they'll reveal a new drone. Part of the event seems to be focused on the DJI Store APP, which is available for Android and iOS devices now. The image used for this event is... not helpful.
