    Sorry if this has been answered but I couldn't find anything on search.
    I live two miles from a major airport but have a large abandoned sports complex next door I can fly in. My problem is,while inside the complex, I pickup enough gps signals that the Mavic won't fly because it's a no fly zone. Any suggestions on how to work around this?

    Good luck flying without GPS, hope you are a well seasoned pilot. Also, there are reasons for no fly zones.

    AAAAND, this is why regulations are becoming stiffer and stiffer with each drone sold.

    I think there is an exception if you are flying inside though..

    My understanding is the FAA has no regulations for UAS indoor flight in or out of a no fly zone. If this is incorrect please direct me to the specific regulation that prohibits this. Also I am not fly in my living room but an indoor complex that is 400' long, 150' wide and 100' high.

    This is not practical, but covering the top of your Mavic with tinfoil might allow you to work around that issue.
