U.S. Army Stops Using Chinese Drones, Citing Cyber Vulnerabilities

An Army memo, obtained by sUASnews.com and viewed by Defense One said the unnamed vulnerabilities that led to the ban on the small, commercially available drones manufactured by DJI of China were outlined in a classified report in May.
