DJI Technology Co. Ltd., the world’s largest producer of consumer drones, has pledged to take “painful” steps to tackle internal corruption.

The Shenzhen-based company revealed in an internal letter earlier this month a series of fraud cases that cost it 1 billion yuan ($148.8 million) in 2018. Dozens of employees were fired or turned in to local law enforcement authorities after they were accused of inflating the cost of parts for personal gain.
