80k Drone IDs Leaked
A DJI Aeroscope database with info from 66 monitoring devices was leaked by a user of Aeroscope. The data was NOT leaked by DJI.
Of these 66, 53 were in the United States.
This database contained over 80,000 drone IDs, and 90 million monitoring records.
The leaked data included drone position, pilot position, model, and serial number, but did NOT include any personally identifiable information.

“Drone Spying” Actually FP&L
A Florida woman claimed a drone was peeping on them last month…
This drone turned out to be a Florida Power and Light drone, conducting inspections.
FPL said that the apartment complex (where the woman was) was notified of the drone flight.
The woman said “I’m letting you know I’m going to throw a brick at you if I see you again,”

Dodgers Game Stopped due to drone
A Major League Baseball game was stopped this week due to a Mini 3 Pro hovering low over the field.
Players appeared to discuss throwing a baseball at it, when it turned and left the stadium.
Previous legislation allowing DOJ and DHS to mitigate drones that pose an immediate hazard to people has expired…
Aeroscope is out there and remote ID is coming…
