FAA rescinds Remote ID Declaration of Compliance for DJI Mavic Pro Platinum

Remarkably one of the first drones to appear on the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) UAS Declaration of Compliance for Remote ID was the old DJI Mavic Pro Platinum.

It always struck us as weird that such a legacy DJI drone and a special edition would be on the Declaration of Compliance list.

The original series was launched in September 2016, and the special DJI Mavic Pro Platinum edition was launched later in that product life cycle.

Yesterday, a message in the Federal Register said, “Notice of Rescission of Unmanned Aircraft Systems Remote Identification Declaration of Compliance, Tracking No. RID000000111 for DJI Mavic Pro Platinum Aircraft”

“This notice rescinds a declaration of compliance (DOC) for the DJI Mavic Pro Platinum unmanned aircraft with the assigned tracking number RID000000111 that the FAA-accepted on January 19, 2023, effective immediately.”

The also listed the basis for the rescission of the DJI Mavic Pro Platinum.

In accordance with § 89.540(a)(1)(i), the Administrator may rescind a DOC under the circumstance that a standard remote identification unmanned aircraft or remote identification broadcast module listed under an FAA-accepted DOC does not meet the minimum performance requirements of §§ 89.310 or 89.320. In accordance with § 89.540(a)(1)(ii), the Administrator may also rescind acceptance of a DOC when a previously FAA-accepted DOC does not meet a requirement of this subpart.

The basis for rescission of the DOC with tracking number RID000000111 is as follows:

(1) DJI statement to the FAA that the group of products listed on DOC tracking number RID000000111 is not compliant with part 89 RID performance requirements.

(2) Statement from the DJI employee, whose name was listed as point of contact on the DOC submission, stating he had not made the DOC submission.

(3) DJI's request for rescission of the DOC with tracking number RID000000111.

Interestingly, the DJI employee who was listed as the point of contact apparently said that he had not submitted the DJI Mavic Pro Platinum to be on the Remote ID Declaration of Compliance list. This raises the question if he didn't, who did? Was this a simple mistake, or did an unauthorized person submit the DJI Mavic Pro Platinum?

What do you think might have happened here? Let us know in the comments below.

We've reached out to the FAA for comment and will update the article when we hear back from them.
