    Mini 3 Pro Flight During Dodgers Game TFR

    Mini 3 Pro Flight During Dodgers Game TFR Mini 3 Pro drone was flown into the baseball stadium under full control, and then flew up and out, and away. My suspicion is that this Mini 3 Pro was flown with the new DJI RC bundle, where no cellular connection exists, and no wifi connection exists...

    Where to fly in the Netherlands

    Hi Everyone, I am new to drones and just received my fantastic Mavic mini. I found it has so restricted rules in the Netherlands, where almost all cities are forbidden to fly over. I guess the most reliable NFZ map is this one: Link Can someone have a short description of different colours...

    LAANC (vs - and) DJI UNLOCK

    USA - Since LAANC approval is required within the Classed airspace, is there a true valid reason for keeping the DJI Unlock? Is it not considered to be redundant by requiring both? Given, there are particular areas that are strictly off limits, i.e., NPS, DC area, stadiums (during game), etc...

    Unlocking drone in NFZ with permission

    I received permission using FAA automated system but when I go to DJI to enter the authorization code, it says I must use a desktop. Since there is no desktop button from the mobile site, how are people that are mobile only getting around this?

    Aircraft side amplification of the TX/RX Stock antenna

    Just got her put back together. Birdside amp mod. Just need to properly mount the amp power source. Probably hook and loop tape. Also I need to use an adhesive to make sure the open cable from the Mavic antenna that is coming out from under the left arm, is impossible to accidentally un attach...

    NFZ confuses me

    Over the past several months of being on here i have read many threads. The one here NFZ ? indicates that in an NFZ you cannot take off and you cannot even fly into it from a safe space takeoff. Many threads I’ve read where pilots are frustrated because they get an error and they cannot take...

    NFZ Limit

    Hi all I'm hoping that someone can help me out and explain the NFZ limits in a bit more detail as I'm struggling to find any detailed information. I have flown my Mavic Pro a few times in the same location with no issues but then I updated the DJI Go app etc and now at the same location the...

    NFZ restrictions and Part 107 unlocking in DJI Go

    Question: I was recently in the French Alps and I’d been excited about capturing some epic mountainscapes and other footage, only to realize that the small strip a couple nm away compelled the app to not permit flight. Had I been Part 107 certified and unlocked as it were would I have been...

    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...

    Cleared for NFZ over lake, then "Will auto land in 19 secs!"

    I received clearance to operate in a No Fly Zone that included a lake where I was going to video some rowers. No problem starting and taking-off, and following a scull for a minute or two out in the lake. Then the controller beeped and displayed a message that I was in a NFZ, and the Mavic...

    No Fly Zone Solution - I can't believe it was this easy.

    So last year I took my MP took Isla Mujeres in Mexico (a tiny island off the coast of Cancun). I was very disappointed because I couldn't fly on most of the island (including right around our gorgeous resort) because there is an old, tiny, unmanned, unused "airport" there which creates a NFZ...

    Looking for solution . . . Mavic, DJI Assistant 2, upgraded to 1.04.0300. Assistant 2 said NFZ update is required; however, when I start the update, the Assistant 2 software on my laptop simply closes. I have tried multiple attempts; each time, it says the NFZ update is required, but shuts...

    NFZ verification failure Unknown Error 200

    I have read the other "unable to validate in NFZ" posts and don't think my problem is there but if I should repost somewhere else please tell me. I live in Cancun and have an MP. Last spring I was on a nearby island (Isla Mujeres) and when I went to use my MP I got a NFZ message. I clicked on...

    How to unlock Red NFZ?

    They are there for a reason, but, needed to unlock for work. Thought I'd share the process, hoops you need to jump through & time it takes.

    Unlocking List Refresh Fails after updates

    OK..I give up DJI. I upgraded my MAVIC firmware this morning using the latest DJI Assistant 2 for both the controller and the AC. It seemed to go OK. I went to fly in my backyard and for the first time ever I received a NFZ warning and could not take off. After some research I see am in a...

    NFZ - One more reason to hate DJI

    I have had no luck trying to fly today. I upgraded my ac and controller to the latest firmware. Went to fly and was told my house is now in an NFZ? I am about 5 miles from as small air park. Right on the edge of the NFZ according to their maps. Since it was a YELLOW NFZ I tried for about 2...

    Reporting FAA map errors

    One out of five airports on here don’t exist. One “airstrip” is a tri-county region’s garbage dump. Has been for 17 years. It’d be nice to have accurate data.
