Don't worry. They'll sell them to US utilities, flood control, military and security companies cheap. It's much more efficient than making our own.

We recently took on a client that is buying an industrial uav/drone. They were telling me how expensive it all is b/c everything has to be made domestically. They cannot use a Chinese drone or any drone that contains Chinese parts.

No doubt. I was surprised it was already in effect.
