Video Shows Risk Of Flying A DJI Drone In Ukraine Right Now
Earlier today, Ukrainian DJI reseller Taras Troiak posted the following video on Facebook as a warning to all people who are flying a DJI drone in Ukraine right now.
The short clip shows a drone operator launching and shortly thereafter landing what seems to be a DJI Mavic drone.
Seconds after landing the DJI drone, a grenade explodes right next to where the drone had just landed.
You’ll note in the video that the timestamp shows a date of September 15th, 2016 which might have been caused by the settings in the camera not having been updated appropriately.
It is important to point out that we have no way to verify the authenticity of the video posted by Taras Troiak or the claims that he makes about the Russians using the DJI Aeroscope drone detection system.
Taras says in the post that the Russians have installed a DJI AeroScope system in Chernobyl with a working range of 30-40 miles to spot Ukrainian defense forces who fly DJI drones.
