On April 25, Autel filed a new lawsuit against DJI alleging infringement on two Autel patents:

A 7-day jury trial for the original DJI lawsuit (Delaware) has now been scheduled for 6/10/2019. As of today, this lawsuit has been in the works for 642 days.

At least we know the lawyers have been busy:)

Pretty cool. I find it amazing that so many DJI 'fanpersons' attack Autel for copying DJI. Take a look at this video about the history of DJI and see that DJI actually copied other manufacturers.

Very interesting lawsuit. Autel has the patent for “Automatic Planning and Regulation of the Speed of Autonomous Vehicles” & Counter-rotational prop locking? Doesn’t every quad copy these features?? Agustine, I trust you’d know more about this than most, :D

Have no idea
Was wondering about the 6/10/2019? Is that a typo or is put off for a year?

2019 is correct, pretty amazing how long things like this get dragged out:

"AMENDED SCHEDULING ORDER: These actions are consolidated for all purposes and all papers shall be filed in Civil Action No. 16-706-LPS. Fact Discovery completed by 11/23/2018. Dispositive Motions due by 3/8/2019. An Oral Argument is set for 4/23/2019 at 09:00 AM in Courtroom 6B before Judge Leonard P. Stark. Claim Construction Opening Brief due by 8/10/2018. Claim Construction Answering Brief due by 8/24/2018. A Markman Hearing is set for 9/6/2018 at 10:00 AM in Courtroom 6B before Judge Leonard P. Stark. A Final Pretrial Conference is set for 5/31/2019 at 09:00 AM in Courtroom 6B before Judge Leonard P. Stark. A 7-day Jury Trial is set for 6/10/2019 at 09:00 AM in Courtroom 6B before Judge Leonard P. Stark. Signed by Judge Leonard P. Stark on 4/20/18."

Just think, if DJI wins, Autel may have to stop producing X-Stars!!:( Oh, that's right, never mind...
