DJI is going after Yuneec in a new patent infringement case. DJI has filed a patent infringement lawsuit against Yuneec stating Yuneec’s products and technology infringe on two of DJI’s patents.

DJI is asking the United States District Court for Central District of California to halt any further sale of Yuneec’s infringing products and systems. The patents in question include DJI’s U.S. patent numbers 9,164,506, titled “Systems and methods for target tracking,” and 9,280,038, titled “Interchangeable Mounting Platform.”

“DJI welcomes competition, but is committed to protecting its intellectual property. Friday’s filing is a response to safeguard that investment, to protect customers and partners and to promote genuine innovation in this promising area,” the company said in a statement.

Yuneec recently announced the availability of its drone, Typhoon H, with 4K videos, 12 megapixel stills, new flight and image capture modes, and safety features while DJI recently released its latest drone, the Phantom 4, with a new obstacle sensing system, ActiveTrack feature and TapFly function.

Yuneec has not responded to a request for comment.
