    Hi everyone,

    Took my P3S to my parents house last night to fly it for my nephews. I realized that they were inside a restricted zone as they were next to a small airport. I decided to give it a shot anyway and just keep it real low.

    In any case it flew no problem. I thought the software was suppose to not let it go up? I was definitely in GPS mode and the software even popped up saying I was in a restricted zone.

    Any thoughts?

    In a restricted flight zone, the Phantom will only ascend to a max of somewhere between 20 to 120 meters (per the Phantom manual). You will not be able to take off if in a no fly zone though.
