    DJI GEO maps and FAA maps conflict? Help!

    I'm new to DJI drones. I've flown other non-internet aircraft in the past (still do) and I'm a bit confused by the geo-fencing that DJI has. I fly frequently in a local park ("Beal Park" on the maps below) as it is on the edge of the Class C boundary, and according to the FAA UAS map, I'm in the...

    Thoughts on hacking Mavic 2 NFZ/HEIGHT/SPEED...

    Everyone knows the M2P M2Zoom are much advanced models compared to M1P. However, the M1P is still the only choice if you want to modify it to unlock the height/NFZ restrictions. So here is the question: is it possible that someone will soon come up with a solution for removing NFZ and...

    Height and RTH

So question is, my RTH is set to 50m, but if the cliff drop is 150m does the drone calculate the 50m from where it took off...

    An app that tells you how tall surrounding buildings are?

    Does anyone know of an app or website that shows the height of surrounding buildings? This would be helpful for RTH and Intelligent Modes. It would be awesome to see an overlay on a map that highlighted buildings that were within a range of 100ft-400ft.

    Will changing the height restriction void the warranty?

    I know it's irresponsible to change the height limit for obvious reasons but there are certain times when 120m is not enough for mountains or cliffs etc. So I'm just wondering if changing the height restriction in the app will register it to DJI and void the warranty or have any other legal...
