Are the following airport guidance is from the FAA, AMA, and DJI; are they clear to you?

Academy of Model Aeronautics NationalModel Aircraft Safety Code

2.Model aircraft pilots will:
(c) Not fly higher than approximately 400 feet above ground level within three (3) miles of an airport without notifying the airport operator.

AMA Document

4.RANGE–ALTITUDE –WEIGHT–SPEED:
b) Model aircraft must be flown at or below 400 feet AGL when within 3 miles of an airport as stated in the AMA Safety Code.


FAA Modernization and Reform Act of2012
SenateBill, Section 607(g)
(5)When flown within 5 miles of an airport, the operator of the aircraft provides the airport operator and the airport air traffic control tower (when an air traffic facility is located at the airport) with prior notice of the operation (model aircraft operators flying from a permanent location within 5 miles of an airport should establish a mutually-agreed upon operating procedure with the airport operator and the airport air traffic control tower (when an air traffic facility is located at the airport)).


DJI's NO FLY Zone video say:
Large airports (Catagory A): have a 1.5 mile radius NO FLY zone, then from 1.5 to 5 miles you can fly, but your altitude is restricted based on distance from the airport.  The video says at 1.5 miles you can fly to 35'.  The altitude limit at 5 miles is 400' according to the video.

Small airports: have a 0.6 mile radius NO FLY zone, then from 0.6 to 1.2 miles

DJI User's Manual says:
The User's Manual only mentions a radius (R1) around the airport, see page 41 of the P3P User's Manual.  At R1, the altitude limit is 65', but the DJI video says 35'.  The altitude limit at R1 + 1 mile is 1640'.
