Is this app the only way to tell where we can and cannot fly? Seems to me like it is not accurate at all. See attached picture. For some reason this restaurant has a 5 mile no fly zone?
Login to your DJI account (on a computer, not your phone, you'll see more). Go to: DJI - The World Leader in Camera Drones/Quadcopters for Aerial Photography. Scroll down, and you'll see a map. Use your arrow keys to go to your area of interest. Make the mapper bigger using the + and - keys. You'll see red, yellow and green flyzones. You can advance unlock a yellow area (36 hours of not sending you messages). Using this, you can see where all the NO fly areas are.

Interesting and Hmm. Not a bad idea to give those guys something to do.I looked at B4UFLY and didn't like it. I use UAV Forecast. It obviously harvests data from many places, including NOTAMs, TFRs, weather, etc.
I really like how it gives you winds aloft at your location, as well as adjustable values for airport features. If you're flying rec, you can set the airport zones at 5 miles. If you' re 107, you can set them to whatever.
It seems simple to use. BTW, I also do my preflight with Flight Service!

Over on the fixed wing side us Corp guys use fltplan.com which has nothing really for UAS, maybe in the future.
Question. How knowledgeable are the Flight Service guys to UAS ops?
Thanks for the tip!I use flight service online......Easy to configure your custom dashboard for your area. I have three airports, which one is a Class C, triangulated around me. Anytime I want the weather in my local area, I just log in. They also have a UAS section showing the entire CONUS and with sectional coverage.
