    This morning unannounced I received a lengthy message requiring agreement to their (new?) terms and conditions.

    Has anyone else relied this and what do you make of it? It would appear to require signing one's life away plus selling one's family to DJI!!

    Funny how there is no other option to the new terms other than the "Accept" button or you are locked out of the app and grounded. I sent an email to the main support and well as the .us support email stating that I do not agree to the new terms and I would like the app unlocked. I am not happy about what I read in the new terms, this should have been something I was informed about at the point of purchase last year. Forcing me to a contract is ridiculous.

    I was suspicious of DJI when I bought my I1Pro. I always thought that I could choose not to upgrade and fly on an older version of the app if things got weird. I didn't think that they could lock me out of the app without me accepting something.

    Interesting, this morning, when I turned on my iPhone, there was a message on the main screen from DJI, it appeared like a text message. It was titled DJI and the rest of the text was in Chinese. When I swiped the message, the DJI app opened up. I thought it unusual and just closed the app. Is this what you're talking about? I didn't agree to anything and I only use the iPhone for the Osmo, so I'm not too concerned about it. Seems rather strange that there's only one choice, but not surprising.

    What if you fly with another app like Litchi?

    Why?
    This is done to you every day on every piece of software you install on your PC/Mac.
    You have to agree to the terms of the EULA or you are not allowed to use the software.
    This is no different.
    Additionally, how could you be made aware of terms that last year had not been written?

    Don't forget, you do not own any of your software you have loaded on your computer at home whether that be on CD/DVD or electronic download. You simply have permission/licence to use it (providing you agree to the vendors terms and conditions). This is no different.

    I haven't upgraded but which terms are problematic? Curious to see what draconian measures and powers DJI have now granted itself over our flying experiences.

    That is true, but it seems to read as though you must forfeit all rights to sue DJI for anything that happens, not just software issues.. It is also being imposed months or years after your purchase has been completed.

    You are right we see them every day, but skimming this one struck me a far more aggressive than I normally see. Also, my phones, tablets and laptops can't get confused and take off at 50 mph. At least not yet they can't.
