    Unable to unlock near airport

    I had a shoot today at an uncontrolled airport with Class E airspace at 1200 ft. Before the flight I logged into the Air Control Ap on my phone to request a clearance. The AP told me it couldn't supply an authorization because none was needed... uncontrolled airspace. So, I showed up for the...

    With FAA authorization to fly, then DJI requires "documentation" to unlock

    In a blue "authorization zone" (class B airspace) the drone may report NFZ and refuse to spin up the rotors. In some locations, I have been able to unlock the drone by checking a few boxes stating I am authorized ... but in other locations (like Boston MA) that option is not presented. Then...

    Would you buy a DJI aircraft with height and GeoZone limits if you had a choice?

    There has been a lot of heated discussion on the forum recently about DJI’s GeoZone system and height limits and DJI actively markets these as features of their aircraft.

    Stuck at Safety Notification

    I try to fly (very low altitude) near our local airport and I get the message as viewed in the image below. It seems like it says I can bear responsibility and unlock. But when I press "yes" and even hold it, nothing happens. On one other occasion, no longer reproducible, every time I clicked...

    Unlocking the full potential

    In the FAQ for the Mavic air on DJI's site, I saw that the maximum operating elevation above takeoff is 5000 feet. But the DJI Go 4 app sets the limit at 500m, or ~1600 feet. Is there some way to get past that to go higher? Because I live in a mountainous area, and this summer I hope to go...

    Hi pilots, I got a Mavic half month ago and just flew for twice. And now DJI locked my drone just because I didn't upgrade to 900 firmware. I can't believe they did this, INCREDIBLE!!! I will never upgrade because: 1) I don't want to be controlled. 2) 700 firmware is good enough for me I think...
