    There is no way to override the NFZ but you can check in the pilot app if it is red circled

    Wait, correct me if I am wrong, but putting it in A of F mode should allow the flight.

    It won't start up if it can acquire a GPS lock in a NFZ.

    @gjoseph, put a tinfoil hat on it and be prepared to fly ATTI.
