Hi DJI,

As per latest Drone Rules in India, The altitude Limit is changed for all Nano Categories drones from 15m to 120m.

Please see the attached Rule PDF and a screenshot to point the exact change.

We have holiday season coming in India and all the Drone pilots would love to see this change done at earliest. Many experienced flyers will not want to go via 3rd party paid options just for this approved change.

Yes.Drone laws were drastically changed in India and finally became in favour of Drone pilots.
But DJI should be able to be prompt about just changes and should change their app restriction frequently as per law changes.

Dear DJI,
Good Day,
Kindly update the altitude of DGI Mavic Mini for India as per Indian laws. Still the altitude is fixed at 15mtrs. India is permitted to go upto 120mtrs as per the new regulations. Kindly make the update asap.
Since long it has been not updated & it's reflects DJi support team which is not bothered to do the needful for there loyal customers.
Thanks & Brgds.

DJI, I am new user who just bought DJI Mini 2 and wonder it pushed an update while inboxing and connecting to IPhone 13 pro. Later, I found I cannot even take my flight above Pine trees or teak trees while in Ziro, Arunachal Pradesh and other areas across India. It’s highly frustrating after spending money and not getting what you expect from this toy.
New regulations allow this nano category to fly up to 120m and hope you guys listening to many concerns from India. Hope to see an update from DJI because drone-hacks earning money on your delays which is unethical anyways and you should do something about it. Though I don’t trust those guys however hoping DJI would provide satisfactory response in accordance with DGCA laws.

Looking forward for your support and help with releasing the new update to increase height restrictions.

Team DJI,

Please do update the firmware according to the latest laws, its very hard to carry the bigger drones for smaller shoots here in India. It would be really appreciated if the firmware is updated ASAP and it would help us to make better content with smaller gears and equipments.

Thanks

I emailed DJI and got this reply

Thank you for contacting DJI Technical Support and letting us know your concern.

First of all, I understand your feelings very well. We also want to update it. However, we haven't updated it because the local regulations are not been updated. Although the DGCA has exempted Nano’s 15-meter height limit, the DGFT regulations have not been updated yet. Therefore, we cannot unlock the height limit before the regulations are updated. DGFT is the direct superior department of Indian Customs. If DGFT does not update its regulations to be consistent with DGCA in height limit, we cannot modify it, otherwise, we will face huge risks. I'm sure you can also understand our position.

Our concerned team has already emailed the DGFT for their confirmation from last year, but we haven't received any update or reply from the DGFT until now. It would be greatly appreciated if you could also contact DGFT to push them in this matter. Please don't worry, once we receive confirmation and update, we will unlock/release the limit as soon as possible.

Its been over 6 months since the regulatory change while DJI is sitting on this. India has a huge potential for new DJI consumers however with such attitude i dont think anyone would recommend investing such big bucks for no use. DJI please respond and provide a timeline by when will your app allow users to use the limits of the drone.

Please look into this.
Since Dji does not import drone  to India any more for existing customer it make sense to remove the 15m limit as local law allows it or atleat make this as recommendation from DJI end instead of enforcing them

I am attaching an email confirmation I received from DGCA.
I have already forwarded this to support DJI

Irony is it even can't perform quick shots which only require 25 mtrs. And RTH is just not possible as all arround are trees much higher then 15 mtrs. So only option is to fly from a hill top but then ..If I fly from a hill top...towards the valley how will this ceiling will effect.. .Since takeoff point is a mountain top...all around it will loose alt... So to reach back to its original take off point it will need to climb up.
I mean, will take 15 mtrs ceiling from the top..or from its present location above valley down below.

If nothing else they should open ceiling ht for RTH, if too many security concerns...it can be without video recording i.e. as soon as RTH trigered video recording automatically stops..at least one can retrieve the drone back..

Any news on the update with 120m height change ? Came to India for holidays from Africa and saw this 15m issue while Africa permits 120m. Please fix this issue as the new lndian Aviation law supports 120m height.

The 15m height limit is from the point u fly.. So if u fly from a mountain cliff, u can go 15m higher from that point... And u can u several meter higher from actual groud.. I have tested this..

I think all these dgft talks are just excuses. DJI is mad that government has banned import and they are taking it out on the customers - it’s shameful to say the least. I pity them for stooping so low.

This is the most logical and straightforward answer. It’s our own govt who don’t work closely with other departments which leads to such issues. Seen it at municipal level to corporate level issues. Crazy

I just bought Mini 3 Pro. Let's see if it has a height limit based on new guidelines. With my Mini 2, I had to rely on DH.
It will be delivered in a day or two. Will update you guys here.

Didn't really know that the govt increased the height limit to 120M but bummer that it's still not implemented. So is it the DJI or the DGFT who is not acting on it? I think we collectively as a group need to put some pressure.
