Like I said about DJI earlier, I won't use current DJI stuff because of the truly Orwellian nature of using current DJI stuff, and  ...

I consider this to be worthy of consideration, but read, research, and decide for yourself.  If you don't like the fact that it was posted, blame me, not anyone else here at LP.

In case you didn't know it and might wonder about your info passing outside your country, DJI is a Chinese company.  Info they have access to apparently includes flight logs, videos, locations, hardware you own, registration, certs that may be required...  So don't fly around or video anything that should be kept from public view

WOW, https://info.publicintelligence.net/ICE-DJI-China.pdf was really an eye opener for me. I hadn’t realized DJI had driven all the other guys out of business with their pricing tactics. $900 for a $3500 value product? 
I knew there was a reason I like to build my own.
