    B4UFLY app no longer opens

    Newbie needs expert advice

    Folks, Any help answering these questions would be appreciated. 1) Where the hell can I fly? I've flown my new Mavic Pro a total of three times. Each time I'm nervous as hell. Not for the fact that the only thing between me and a $1000 investment is gravity and 98 feet (beginner mode), but...

    Noobie question re: proximity to Airports & Helipads

    I know I'm not allowed to fly within 5mi of an airport without notifying them; however, when I looked at my location via B4UFLY, it gave the following warning, "You are within 5 miles of an airport." I've uploaded screenshots from B4UFLY and UAV Forecast. You can see from both (especially UAV...
