    I have had this drone for a few days. It has flown fine for the first 2 days but then after that, when I would try to launch the drone, it would not allow me to take off because of a "no fly zone" even though the previous days it let me take off no problem. I tried going to different areas around town and I continued getting the same message. I deleted the app and re-downloaded it which worked for one flight. After that, however, it went back to telling me I was in a "no fly zone" and would not allow me to take off. I checked DJI's "No Fly Zone" map and I am not in one. Anyone else having this problem? Is there a way to permanently fix this?

    Trying to fly near *****'s Tower?
    Do permanent TFRs (Terminal Flight Restrictions) get updated in the app and restrict you from flying?
    I've never flown a DJI product and I'm still waiting for my Mavic to arrive so I don't have any experience with how the no fly zones work. Check www.skyvector.com and see if a TFR popped up over you.

    after turning off GEO settings, it now allows me to take off. I would greatly prefer if GEO actually worked though so I could rely on it for drone laws but it clearly is not working properly. I contacted someone at DJI about this issue

    It is supposed to still be able to take off with GEO settings turned on. DJI does not recommend that you turn it off. It disables many safety notifications by doing so. There is an error in my area that does not allow me to launch
