Buy a DJI if what you actually want is to take good photos/videos, go DIY if what you actually want is a fun project.

Assuming the pic is your own... How much does that drone weigh? What software does it run?

Most drones run an open source software called betaflight which is a fork of cleanflight which is another fork of baseflight.

I think I spent under 150$ for the drone itself it's a very budget like build using 2 year old parts.

Mistake, the weight of my drone is around 550 grams or 1.5 lbs

How to Build a Drone Jammer

Spark gap transmitters are the oldest type of radio transmitter made by man. They were first used around 1888 and remained legal until the 1920s when their use became greatly restricted. World War II delayed their complete ban outside of emergency communications for a few years. Now the only way to use them legally is inside a faraday cage. They operate as jammers for the same reason they were banned, they take up a lot of the radio spectrum.

Also in other news the gubberment tries to push more rules and regulations on drones due to interest and lobbying by large shipping companies especially Amazon. It is getting increasingly hard to fly a drone even though such regulations and laws are never upheld (do you think the police will go around with a drone scanner?)

im not watching an entire 34 minute video "about drones" just because you posted it
please link to specific parts of the vid or at least summarize it to summon interest

sorry about that,

basically you are now required to present a remote id that is being broadcast at all times, your transmitter must also be connected to the internet at all times. while this is fine for a commercial drone use as a DJI phantom, it is not for the case of a hobbyist made drone as the one depicted on this topic. Because regulation had a very vague statement about Hobby made drones and how it can broadcast the ID or not. to comply with the FAA's new remote id rule you have threeoptions, one is being connected to the internet via data to transmit the remote id. the second option is drones operate in a limited id mode where you are limited to 400 ft from you and the drone in any direction which is very very limited in terms of drone racing and free style. the last option is only going to FAA recongized identification areas or AMA fields which is a problem because there are not enough AMA fields or very little (also most tend to shun drone pilots because it gets in the way of their plane flying) which already limits the amount of space and fly areas the drone pilots have to go through.

so basically these remote id's aren't to benefit the hobbyist and it is more to benefit the commercial drone services such as DJI, amazon and other large shipping companies who may use drones in the future.

https://www.thedroneu.com/blog/faa-announces-drone-remote-id/ a more summerized version of what the Remote ID proposal could mean for the drone hobby as a whole

again I apologize for not able to put a summary of what is going on.

Another thing that this also removes the current rule which is no drones below 250 grams can be flown without registering the drone. so remote id is tied to all drones regardless of weight limit. Before or currently we are able to fly drones sub 250 grams in our back yards and such without registering the drone.
