  1. I have updated the OP for the pedantic... (which I respect, as I too am pedantic) *salute*
  2. I have attempted to add more context for you... I am sorry your mobile was unable to render my post!
  3. I've been a pretty reputable source for a number of years FWIW https://www.cnet.com/news/security-warning-draws-dmca-threat/ https://www.theregister.co.uk/2008/09/08/scada_exploit_released/ https://www.theregister.co.uk/2011/05/03/cop_car_hacking/ https://motherboard.vice.com/en_us/article/8x9jv4/drone-pilots-are-buying-russian-software-to-hack-their-way-past-djis-no-fly-zones https://motherboard.vice.com/en_us/article/3knkgn/dji-is-locking-down-its-drones-against-a-growing-army-of-diy-hackers
  4. *I* am the source article... I am the one that found that they are violating GPL... I revealed this via Twitter, which I linked above. See second post above for info on WHY this matters... https://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-faq.en.html
  5. If you purchase a DJI Inspire2, DJI Spark, DJI Mavic or DJI Phantom4 series drone, please be aware there is GPL code inside: https://github.com/MAVProxyUser/dji_system.bin/ Specifically Busybox, among others: You should be entitled to both redistribution of the binaries in question, as well as the accompanying source code per GPL licensing rules. https://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-faq.en.html
  6. I found out today this wasn't a first either... http://openrcforums.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=45&t=6952 "3D Robotics took OpenTX, modified it, kept the name (which is forbidden by the GPL) and didn't provide the source code anywhere (again forbidden). No donation of course, even if they raised 40M$ in funding." ​Given this is two weeks old... and IRIS+ was released last year... https://github.com/3drobotics/3drtx
  7. For companies like that we thankfully have https://sfconservancy.org Conservancy Announces Funding for GPL Compliance Lawsuit VMware sued in Hamburg, Germany court for failure to comply with the GPL on Linuxhttp://sfconservancy.org/news/2015/mar/05/vmware-lawsuit/
  8. I encourage all of you to request a copy of the GPL source code as required by the 3drobotics "Open Source" licensing. You will find that unfortunately 3DR staff is unable to abide by their open source commitments. Solo is hardly "Open for Development". As a developer I am finding that I am unable to navigate the open source parts of Solo as 3drobotics will not make them fully available. As a founding member of Drone Code Foundation I find this to be disgusting. http://3drobotics.com/3dr-announces-launch-dronecode-foundation/ “Dronecode will allow companies to participate in UAV developmen
