Has anyone here that flies DJI drones lost any contracts due to potential security issues? I know all US government facilities have banned all dji products and components. My issue came this week when one of my clients who is a power plant asked me if I flew one of these Chinese manufactured drones. I did not lose my contract but am looking for a possible replacement. Just curious if anyone has come across a situation like mine.

Are you sure of that or just accepting what someone told you?
I work for a fairly large utility and can confirm that there was a request from Regulators to stop using certain manufacturers or provide some sort of mitigation plan to protect bulk electric system assets and sensitive information.

I'm currently trying to find a product to purchase to move our tiny drone operation to a more industrial level and was solicited by my boss to look at M210 alternatives, or provide adequate information to support purchasing the DJI product.

It may be worth looking into DJI Government Edition

I don't know anything about it but it may be worth discussing with your local DJI dealer. I've never had an issue with this but what "the customer wants the customer gets".
I have a DJI Enterprise dealer here in AZ (Scottsdale). They are experts on their Products.

Ask for Ali or Micah.
