downgrading FW will not solve your problem. there is no way around it. well there is but...., I am sure you can figure out how. just remeber how the system knows where u are, that is the only hint you get.

how about your device? does it have gps and cellular data? turning off gps doesnt mean it is not active in background, it just means you are flying without its aide

I have iPad Mini 2 only wifi.

What can I do with it?? For that money there should be a option I can turn off NON FLY ZONE mode at own risk. Dammed! I am missing amazing shots right now! Ridiculous.

as i said, manual mode does not mean gps is not working it just means YOU are not using it to FLY

Tin foil cap maybe? For the quad? Be wary of wind my friend as nothing will make the quad stay put and it will drift.

LOLOL ... "For the quad"   I can just see the poor guy wrapping an entire roll of Reynolds Wrap around his head while typing, "Still not working!"

Lol wow that was a good one for both of you, I hesitated to answer with a simple aluminum tape trick on the dji logo on top of the phantom, as I don't want many people in places where they should not fly be able to fly.

OP you really need to know how to fly as it literally will fly away if you don't have full control of the phantom in that situation so do it at your own risk and all of us here WILL NOT take any responsibility for any harm you cause for yourself or to others including but not limited to human and animal lives and any spirits that might be produced in the event of killing anything.

Ok, I am GUESSING here (Dang. Just did that in another thread.), but I have reason to believe that if you downgrade from GO back to Pilot App, you may be okay. Why?! Well, I am not sure, but I think the GPS coordinate database is included in your App. The reason I believe this is that a friend in Fairfax VA told me his old version 1-something pilot app does not have the increased DC radius constraint, but GO certainly does. He may be serious or joking with me - I do not know.  I do not want to mess with Big Brother here.

Could that be true in Budapest? - don't know.  Has it always been a no fly zone?  Can you fly manual as suggested above?

I don't like to fly strictly ATTI because wind can be a real issue sometimes. I have read tons of nightmares about DJI zoning old airports as "no fly's" in error.

Old airports or rarely used airports.... or video you need to take and only want to fly 30-40' in the air but cant because of the airport....  What a hassle!     I wish there was a "I know I'm in a no-fly-zone but only need to go 50 feet" mode.

Ray taught me a trick when we were flying together, if i want to know what was the wind speed is, i go up at the altitude i want to fly at and then let it hover then switch to attitude mode and watch the speed on the gauge and as it goes into a steady drift then that is the wind speed, it did help me a lot today as i was getting my batteries to storage voltage (3.8 volts no load/ 3.6 volts hover) it was not windy at surface level (maybe 5 or 6 mph) but when i went up 400 feet i found it not staying in one spot, so i put it in attitude then it started going real fast and clocked at 15mph and with directon, so i put it back in to gps and let face the wind direction and it was nice and discharging my battery fast.
