A couple of weeks ago, the House of Representatives passed a bill that would ban new DJI drones in America – which is now sitting around awaiting the Senate's attention. At first many panicked and rushed to sell their drones – but that might be a very bad move. 

I actually spoke to DJI about the proposed ban, who openly called it worrying, but even if it passes it is not likely to be retroactive – meaning that existing DJI products would still work.
