The attached article could explain the FBI raid of my homes earlier this month. Among other items my drone and controller were seized. Parts of the drone were broken off and left behind.

Most of the consumer grade drones are Chinese made. Apparently there is growing concern about these drones being used for espionage by China. Possibly unbeknownst to their owners. The article mentions that there is a Dec 16 deadline for the use of counter-drone technology by the government. They are currently looking to extend that authority. The raid of my homes may have simply been a political move. It makes more sense than any explanation I have come up with so far.

I am the first to buy American (my trucks and motorcycles are all American!) but there simply is no domestic consumer drone available that can compete with DJI. Sadly, another sector where we have allowed ourselves to fall behind.
