Had a job today next to Belfast city airport for a local radio station just like to say how helpful the airport was, got permission to operate just of the approach up to a height of 200 feet for the photo shoot just with the usual weather restrictions visibility and cloudbase limits.


And used the GEO system to unlock the zone.

It got postponed at the last minute due to not all the vehicles turning up.

Great, it really is a nice system. And it gives you a lot more power to fly pretty much wherever you want.

Glad to hear that everything went well. One must understand that it is going to take a bit of time to educate the public that everyone that flies a drone is not is not an irresponsible idiot.

Useless for me. I have several jobs to do on an RAF base (RAF Cranwell in the UK).
I hold PFAW from the CAA, I have all the military clearance right the way up the command chain to do the jobs. I have clearance from the tower to operate on and around the runways (I am doing the jobs FOR the RAF).
So to put this into perspective:
I have permission from the CAA and hold PFAW to operate commercially.
I have written permission from the Royal Air Force to operate on their base (RAF Cranwell).
I have authorisation to fly from the air traffic control tower on the base to operate within the MATZ
Unfortunately it appears DJI do not deem it appropreate for me to fly in this area due to it being a Locked NFZ and therefore I am unable to utilize the Inspire as a tool of work and undertake the job with DJI 'Nanny' equipment.
This should NOT be happening for licensed UAV operators!!!!!!

In the US just about all the military bases can be unlocked and free to fly in. Can you do a test and try the GEO Beta app and 1.7 firmware on your aircraft and take it to the base see if you can unlock it.

From my map, I show it as being able to be unlocked.

If you are seeing red circles then you are not flying the beta app with the beta FW 1.7. iOS App 2.6.0 operates as per the old NFZ preventing flying at airfields.

There are barely any red zones on the GEO app, it's not part of the app that you get from the Apple store or Play store. Its a Beta app  that you can only download to Android and you have to use the DJI website to get it.
I think it was always unlockable, you just need to be using the Beta app.

Thank you. It is unfortunate that the media doesn't go with the positive things that we do and enjoy creating, they just go with the negative actions of the small amount of reckless actions of others.

It's a Beta app for people to test and report on if they want to try it out. It lets you fly in the no-fly zones with authorization.
You install the Beta 2.4.4 app on you Android device (no IOS yet) directly form the the DJI website. And also install the 1.7 firmware on your Phantom3 Pro/Advanced or Inspire.
If you want to stay on it you are free to, or downgrade down to 1.6.

I don't know why that is happening, it should let you download the app to your Android.
Here's some instructions.

        
Uninstall the GO app from device: Go to settings, Applications, Application manager, find GO app and uninstall.
Installing 2.2.4 GEO Beta app: Go to DJI Geo webpage http://www.dji.com/flysafe/geo-system
Click on Android Beta Version APK, Agree to terms and it will then download
Go to  My Files, in Recent files click on the DJI app icon and it may say “Install Blocked” click on settings (if you get a different error then go to settings and scroll down to “Lock Screen and Security” Under Unknown sources slide the button to ON. Then go back to the DJI icon in My Files and then tap the icon and click agree and then the new 2.4.4 GEO Beta version app will open.

You also have to install the 1.7 firmware for your aircraft from the same DJI link. (only available for the P3 Pro/Advanced and Inspire.
When you get to the flying site, if it’s an Authorization Zone you can unlock providing a credit card or mobile phone number (using cell will send you a text message with a code)
You can also unlock from home ahead of time by using the map page and you can unlock up to 30 zones and they will be unlocked for 72 hours.  http://www.dji.com/flysafe/geo-system/unlock

I have it on my android, plus I installed it on a bunch of other employees androids and it worked just fine on all of them. So these instructions should work OK for you.
