What are fly spots and why does my DJI Fly app show fly spots for Nanjing? I live in the US.

Fly spots are places that are recommended good places to fly.

Per the DJI website https://www.dji.com/dji-fly

Notes:

1. The Fly Spots feature is currently only available in Mainland China. All flight locations displayed by the Fly Spots feature are based on voluntarily-shared location tags from SkyPixel users. DJI never collects or shares user data without user consent. Always check and follow the applicable rules wherever you fly.

Because, thats the only place in the world where there are fly spots. We have to take our vacations and go fly over there!! Joking really. Like the previous post, they haven't added other places for the rest of the world as of yet. Should be nice if they finish this out to be able to pull that up and find interesting places near by to go fly and see some interesting things!!! It should be a nice feature once its done up.

Thank you all for your replies. If the feature is only available in mainland China as, the web site suggests, is there any way to disable it for those of us who don't live there or plan on visiting there in the near future?

Hi, thank you for reaching out. The DJI Fly Spots are only available in Mainland China and we don't have the ability to use it if you are located in the US. Also, as of the moment, we don't have the option to disable this feature on the DJI FLY app since we are still developing this feature and hopefully this will be available on the users that was located in the US in the near future. Hope this helps. Thank you for your understanding and support!

Would be an excellent and much needed app if it covered other countries.

this was already explained 8 months ago..

The question is.. after so long time did something changed or not?

Will it be available in other country (eg Europe) one day?  Like DJI Gamora hypothesize in Dec 2019 (see above posts)
Or we have to forget it?

It is quite strange that DJI Fly app contains a button in the main screen.. which has sense ONLY for China..

Once its done. Unfortunately a year later (almost) its still not done. I think it harder to make a MA2 than to make an app update.

I'm doing a little mapping here in Brazil of "Fly Spots" that here we call "drone friendly", as well as in "pet friendly" places where the place is friendly to take your pet ...
I used a collaborative map platform (but moderated by me) where the user registers new interesting places for safe flight, this platform is called Mapotic, developed in the Czech Republic. In its "free" version, there is a limitation on the number of accesses and some features, such as releasing more than one administrator for moderation or placing your logo.

The platform address is https://www.mapotic.com/

Our example is: https://www.mapotic.com/drone-friendly

Here is this tip for you my friends, and I hope that when you come to visit our country that you can use this tool, after all, it belongs to all of us! For now we have 96 locations, but soon more people will be collaborating, there are many "drone friendly" places to fly.

Hugs

A nice option would be for the dji community to add their favorite fly spots to the map.

I agree with this for local interest, for other DJI users that live locally and putting point's of interest on the map with images..

I think it would be a good thing, yet another plus point for dji

Well, it's over 4yrs later now. Is there an option to disable this feature yet, or is it available in the US? Because it's still showing locations in China for me.

It's 4yrs later now and I just bought a Mini 3 Pro, and guess what, the Fly Spots are still prominently displayed on my screen in the US. Not sure why, in 4 years, they haven't been able to make a simple update that removes it since it's just taking up screen real estate for no reason

Hi, djiuser_nSgIcaMOmZ43. Thank you for reaching out. Fly Spots function is already supported for users outside China.

How to upload fly spots?
1). Launch the DJI Fly app. Tap [Fly Spots]. Select the portrait button on the left of the map page, as shown below (based on the DJI Fly app v1.4.8):

2). Go to [Fly Spots] page and tap “+” to select between “Add Fly Spot” and “Review Fly Spot”. To add a fly spot, please tap [Add Fly Spots]*. Select the Fly Spot address and fill in related details**. After submission, enter Review phase.
* There is a paragraph of detailed copyright description, attached in [Appendix].
** Currently, you can edit “Suggested Name”, “Detailed Address”, “Work”, “Fly Spot Rating” , and “Flight Tips”
Then, wait for the review results.
If the review is passed, there is a corresponding notification. You can see the added fly spots in the corresponding position.
If the review does not pass, a notification will be given regarding the reason.

Note: Please make sure that the device is connected to the internet and test it with a good GPS location. Hope this helps.
