To confirm, the outer ring of a NFZ is designed to serve as a warning, correct? I've read that it's the inner ring that serves as an area where the Phantom 3 will not fly. I've never flown anywhere near any type of NFZ, and want to better understand the different colored rings/perimeters. I've attached a picture for reference. Thanks!
I don't know if lenient is the word. The disabling of your AC is to keep you from doing something glaringly illegal. But it will still allow you to do things that are illegal, even if it's an honest mistake. So you should familiarize yourself with the area you're flying and the laws and rules of whatever type of flying you're doing (Part 101 recreational, Part 107 commercial, etc.).
