Hey dad, why is our drone flying the other way?
>The attack can likely only be fixed by updating receivers' firmware protocols, which is a feat not possible on most devices.
So they went to the trouble of locking down their kit using a 3rd party protocol (someone else thought it up/everyone else is using it so it must be good) and are now lulling themselves into a false sense of security and not bothering to offer firmware upgrade capabilities.
Them telling us its a matter of cost is not going to fly (see what i did there) considering we're talking about machines that start off at a few hundred back and go up waaay higher (pun)
Curious to see how (if ever) the first lawsuit about a hijacked drone will play out.
In the meanwhile i will feel good knowing what happened to my drone as i see it fly away to a new owner
