    I am curious, where data about NFZ are stored.
    In the bird, or in the radio? Maybe in both?

    In a firmware 1.4 we got additional NFZ's over stadiums.
    Are they 'updatable' with an internet connection or they are permanently written into the f/w?

    they're software based now so they can be updated as a background service. used to be FW based, but those were simple to skirt by not taking the latest FW.

    I don't believe they have implemented that yet. I expect it will be bad in on the next firmware update.

    Hm, the are only in DJI GO, not in the RC, bird firmware (you mean in current versions of DJI GO and /w or geofence beta)? Or i understood wrong?

    DJI no fly zones are firmware based.... Im talking about the NO fly zones.. Not the Geo Crap, they are trying to push in the next update.... For example you can't use an app like litchi to fly over an Airport... Why?? Because its not software based.. Rather Firmware/SDK.. Which means You can't disable them or remove them....
