Makers of the drone that crashed at White House to enforce D.C. no-fly zone

It’s a bird! It’s a plane! Well, if you’re in D.C., you can be sure it’s not a DJI drone.

DJI, the maker of the drone that crashed on White House lawn earlier this week, announced on Wednesday that it will enforce a no-fly zone on downtown Washington for its products.

Once the drones are updated in the next few days, they will not be able to take off from or fly into the nation’s capital or a 15 mile radius around it, according to a news release from the company. GPS technology in the drones will be able to identify the no-fly zone, warn the operator and then stop at the no-fly zone’s border.
