Will Biden be able to deal with this effectively?
We need a strong leader to be able to deal with this leap in Chinese drone technology. The CCP does not play fair and has been stealing intellectual property for YEARS.
These new drones they have are quite impressive, and they are on track to rival our own unmanned weapons very soon…..scary right?
Luckily though, President Trump signed an order on his way out to protect us from drone based security threats…..just one day before his departure.
These measures focus on us NOT using chinese made drones or parts to prevent them from getting in through the backdoor and controlling our tech remotely.

NTD News had more on the story:
The Chinese regime has been actively growing its fleet of unmanned aircrafts to spy on and compete with adversaries such as the United States, a leaked document from China’s Ministry of National Defense reveals.
The July 2017 document, supplied to The Epoch Times by a trusted source, described Beijing’s ambition to dominate what it called “full dimensional warfare”—referring to control over sea, land, air, space, and the electromagnetic spectrum where military equipment communicates—by developing advanced military drones.
To accomplish the above, the regime detailed a plan to design one to two types of small, long-range military drones and establish a factory to produce 1,000 drones per year. The document stated there would be a 130 million yuan (about $20 million) investment to build the drone-making firm that would begin production by the end of 2018.
“Implementation of the program will arm our national defense with the latest combat power in future vertical warfare and make it capable to contend with U.S. military weapons, giving it marked military significance,” the document stated.
NTD News also reported on President Trump's counter measures:
President Donald Trump signed an executive order on Jan. 18 to prevent the U.S. federal government from using drones manufactured by foreign adversaries, including China.
Drones, also known as unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), have been used increasingly across all levels of the U.S. governments for tasks including assisting law enforcement and supporting natural disaster relief efforts, the executive order explained.
“Reliance on UAS and components manufactured by our adversaries, however, threatens our national and economic security,” the president said in the order, warning that information collected by drones could be “accessed by or transferred to foreign adversaries.”
These components include sensors, cameras, software, and artificial intelligence technologies.
