    Anyone have a *MAC* copy of the pre- No Fly Zone (v.3.0.8??) Phantom 2 Assistant?

    Hi all, I'm a licensed Part 107 pilot with an FAA waiver to fly near an airport, and I'm trying to get my Phantom 2s to do it. I understand that the only way is to downgrade the firmware to a version before DJI included the No Fly Zone feature. The firmware is contained and installed through...

    Prisontime for Drone Flyers.

    It was Johnny Cash who once sang Folsom Prison Blues although it can be said he never thought of drone pilots in mind when writing this tune. More recently, with Canada and more lately China, drone pilots can have strict fines or penalties. Such is the case of Tony Lin, a college student in...

    How close can I get to this castle?

    So there is a castle I know of, you can see in this video I made (at 1:12) that I went close to it but I didn't want to fly right over it. My question is, is it legal to fly over it if it is privately owned? I usually only fly in public places where I know I am allowed so I don't annoy anyone or...

    I am very reluctant to update the app as the description on the app store reads "update no fly zone library". Has anyone updated the app and noticed an addition to the quantity of no fly zones?

    How to turn off prohibited zones!

    More of a question than a statement. . . does anyone know how?? . . or is it permanently buried in the dji software. I do have a valid and rational commercial use for this . . that's legal, given the proper clearances. Anyone know about how P4 restricted coordinates are maintained? I'm talking...
