DJI's Open Letter to the BBC

Recommended Posts

DJI has published an open letter denouncing public service broadcaster BBC for its negative, one-sided portrayal of drones in two recent programs—“The Gatwick Drone Attack” and “Britain’s Next Air Disaster? Drones.”

DJI’s main gripe with the BBC drone programs is their unbalanced, one-sided reporting. The programs excluded information on the safety features drones have to mitigate the risks talked about in the programs.

“The BBC ultimately preferred to boost viewing figures by focusing on sensational, high-risk scenarios that are vanishingly rare or almost impossible, while ignoring evidence that drone technology is safe and that the drone industry itself has implemented various features to mitigate the risks described,” stated DJI in the letter.
